Trinidad Tidings: Music and more in the seaside village

Distinguished Trinidad citizens Bryce Kenny, a former mayor, planning commissioner, attorney at law, and tango dancer, and Trinidad Volunteer Fire Department Chief Tom Marquette will perform at the Trinidad Artisans Market on Sunday, July 15 from noon to 3 p.m.

Both Bryce and Tom play guitar and will sing accompanied by Tonio Skweir on bass guitar. Bryce and Gail Kenny’s daughter, Heather, will join the Tide Pool Divers Band on snare drums and vocals.   

They will perform classic country, country rock and Americana. Trinidad Artisans Market is held each Sunday through the summer next to Murphy’s Market, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Music is presented free of charge.

Bryce wrote that daughter, Heather, a star pupil at Trinidad School some years ago and graduate of UC Davis, is heading off to graduate school, studying wildlife biology, at College of William and Mary in late August. The open air concert would be an ideal time to welcome her home.
