For more than 125 years, The New York Botanical Garden has been a New York City treasure and a National Historic Landmark. Corporate funding helps NYBG build upon its achievements and accomplish its goals. Key among them are the following. To create a green urban oasis that inspires visitors to love and value nature. To connect gardening to the arts and humanities through innovative exhibitions and public programming. Teaching S.T.E.M. education to city kids and training graduate students to be dynamic, forward-thinking scientists. To provide jobs, teacher training, and hands-on urban farming to one of the poorest congressional districts in the country. And to save the plants of the world through cutting-edge plant research, conservation, and sustainability programs both in NYBG labs and around the world.
Sets at 12, 1, 2, 3, & 4 p.m.
As you sample your brews, chill out to some blues and bluegrass with Moonshine Falls on Saturday, and The Paul Josephs Blues Band on Sunday. They will have you swinging as you sip! Moonshine Falls subscribes to the New Blue movement—a re-blending of newgrass from the late 70's and early '80s with traditional bluegrass from the 40's and 50's—has a more sound and tightly knit, more polished vocals. The Paul Josephs Blues Band is an homage to the music of the founding fathers and mothers of American music, and you will recognize the classic but upbeat sound.
About the Artists
What can you say about a band that has it all? Superb playing, gorgeous harmonies, a fine-honed polish that comes with years of playing, and a youthful exuberance that comes from a love of the music?… …From Moonshine Falls notes their goal is to pay homage to tradition without drowning it in, balancing tradition with the New Blue movement.
