The free concert will begin at 7 p.m., and those planning to attend are encouraged to bring a chair or blanket for seating. In case of rain, the show will move indoors to the ground-floor auditorium of H.F. Robinson Administration Building.

Performing a blend of Americana, folk and rock, Mangas Colorado includes the Cullowhee-based trio of Seamus Moose, Colby Deitz and Jarrod Couch. The Smoky Mountain News’ Garret K. Woodward has written that the band’s live shows “have made this word-of-mouth ensemble a beloved act in the eyes and ears of Western North Carolina music lovers.”

WCU’s summer series will conclude Wednesday, July 27, with a free show by the locally and nationally renowned bluegrass band Balsam Range at 7 p.m. on the University Center lawn.
