By Diane Cary Special to the Express The Winters Friends of the Library summer concert series continues with a free outdoor performance by Los Tres de Winters on Thursday, July 22 from 7–8:30 p.m. at the Rotary Park Gazebo on Main Street at Railroad Avenue in front of the Community Center in Winters. The trio plays Norteño-style music, with José Luis Echeverria on accordion, Adolfo Valenzuela on bajo quinto (a large guitar with five courses of doubled steel strings), and Rafael Echeverria on bass. This lively music is a hybrid of Mexican and Spanish vocal traditions with waltzes and polkas brought to Mexico by Czech and German immigrants in the mid-nineteenth century. It evolved in the north of Mexico and is now a favorite style throughout the western U.S. Check them out on YouTube. The performance is part of the Winters Friends of the Library 23rd season of Summer Concerts at the Gazebo. WFoL has presented free outdoor concerts every Thursday in July since 1998, except in 2020. The series will conclude with The Easy Winners playing classic rags, waltzes, cakewalks, tangos, and marches on July 29. Everyone is invited to pack a picnic, bring a blanket or lawn chairs or sit on the grass, sip a cool drink, and enjoy some fine live music. The Friends of the Library will have delicious refreshments and quality used books for sale, and all proceeds will support the Winters Library. This year’s concert series is co-sponsored by Waste Management, First Northern Bank, and Oates Country Store.
