Last October, I caught a pop-up concert by Zach Person on the Butler Trail around Lady Bird Lake.
Taking a break during a bike ride to listen to live music felt quintessentially Austin.
This weekend, The Trail Foundation hosts another morning of free music on the trail. Performances run from 8 a.m. until noon Saturday at Lakeshore Park, the grassy space near the intersection of South Lakeshore Boulevard and Pleasant Valley at the southeast corner of the lake in downtown Austin. Besides providing free music, The Trail Foundation will be giving away T-shirts.
Here’s the lineup:
8 a.m. Frederico Do Mar
9 a.m. Sarah Hall
10 a.m. Aubrey Hays
11 a.m. Scott Strickland
More fun is planned the following weekend.
Cynthia Bernard, creator of ATX Yoga Girl, a mobile yoga studio, will lead an outdoor Yoga on the Trail class from 8:30-9:30 a.m. Saturday, July 17, at Butler Shores, between Barton Creek and South Lamar Boulevard.
The class, suitable for all skill levels, includes a swag pack with a t-shirt and koozies. Cost is $20; register here.
The Trail Foundation is a non-profit organization that works to maintain and enhance the 10-mile trail around Lady Bird Lake.
