Rancho Los Alamitos
Bixby Hills/Long Beach
(1834)

Fire & Grace & Ash


Edwin Huizinga, violin; Ashley Broder, mandolin; William Coulter, guitar

Step into the California Rancho period at this magnificently restored "Ranch of the Little Cottonwoods", including four acres of nationally significant historic gardens, a ranch house (1790-1933) and barnyard — all of which served as home to three generations of the Bixby family. In this setting, a trio of virtuoso musicians will take you on a one of a kind musical adventure blending Bach, Bluegrass and Celtic guitar — a musical journey featuring unique and compelling arrangements of Baroque music with detours along the path to gentle and foot-stomping American fiddle tunes.

Rancho Los Alamitos Festival: Explore the Rancho’s extensive grounds, gardens, animals, exhibits and historic structures – visit the blacksmith shop for live demonstration, watch a short film about the history of the Rancho, listen to a local historian tell stories and share music of the native Tongva people who originally lived in the area, and enjoy a reception beneath a canopy of 100 year old Moreton Bay Fig Trees on the front lawn of the beautifully restored ranch house.  A memorable afternoon on the Rancho!

Light Reception

This afternoon's Rancho Los Alamitos Festival and concerts are made possible in part by a generous grant from The Kenneth T. and Eileen L. Norris Foundation.
