The lineup for “Sundown Sunday” concerts includes the country rock band Nancarrow on June 26, the Top 40 dance band Siren’s Crush on July 24, and Todo Mundo, which plays world music blending pop, reggae, rock, gypsy, Caribbean and Latin music, on August 28. The free concerts run from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Community members and the public are invited to bring picnics, beach chairs and blankets. (No glass, please.)

Nancarrow and Siren’s Crush are making return appearances following last year’s popular concerts at Civita.

Fronted by singer/songwriter Graham Nancarrow, his namesake band was nominated in the Best Country/Americana Band category at the San Diego Music Awards in 2012, won the 2015 SDMA for Best Americana Album, and remains one of San Diego’s favorite original country-rock bands.
