Join us for a great concert as local superstars the Gilly Girls perform train songs and popular music from the early 1900s. A program for all ages.

FOLLOW THE FLUME is a series of public programs that tell the story of how the logging flumes and locomotives helped shape life in California’s Central Valley. This family-friendly program will highlight popular music and train songs from the early 1900s, from the time of the lumber trade boom. The Gilly Girls are a local performing ensemble comprised of four sisters, two sets of twins ages 10 and 12. They are developing a unique sound that incorporates bluegrass, southern gospel and oldtime string band music. Join us for this lively, spirited show!
