Enjoy a multi-cultural concert performed by guitarist and composer, Miroslav Tadić, and violinist and composer Yvette Cornelia Holzwarth, at the Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre in Jackson, and sponsored by Amador Arts.
A worthy climax to the Argonaut Mine Disaster Centennial Commemoration, Tadić and Holzwarth’s superb musicianship and beautiful harmonies present a perfect depiction of the complex social and cultural life of the gold mining pioneers and dreamers of the Gold Country. It has also transformed and shaped the local community for all generations to come and has become the foundation of the social and cultural dynamics of the capital of Amador County, the city of Jackson—a place of peace, beauty, dreams and love.
Admission is free. Bring chairs or blankets for lawn seating. For more information about Argonaut Mine Disaster Centennial Commemoration events, go to www.VisitAmador.com/Argonaut100
