Encore Park Dallas is pleased to announce The Museum of Street Culture Music Series, to be held in the 508 Amphitheater, November 7, 2015 and running through April 8, 2016. All concerts and public programs are free of charge.
The Museum of Street Culture music series focuses on traditions that originate on the back roads and sidewalks of America – in small towns, sprawling suburbs, and inner city neighborhoods. Street culture embraces the music of the people, from blues singers and fiddlers to corridistas and rappers.
