The high-energy bluegrass quintet Eight Dollar Mountain will kick off Brookings free Summer Concerts in the Park series at 1 p.m. Sunday at Azalea Park.

“We are so fortunate to get such a great band to launch what is sure to be our best season ever,” said Scott Graves, board member of the American Music Festival, which organizes the free concert series at the park’s bandshell.

The concerts, presented by sponsor Rogue Credit Union, typically draw crowds of 300 to 500 people who bring blankets and lawn chairs to the park’s natural amphitheater. The snack shack, operated by The Brookings Harbor Interact Club, offers hot food and drinks. Admission is free, but buckets are passed for donations to help pay for the artists.
