Shoppers at River Park Square were treated to an hour of free bluegrass tunes, courtesy of the Oct. 1 KPBX Kids' Concert featuring Heartbreak Pass.
Heartbreak Pass has been one of the Inland Northwest's favorite bands since it started in 2008. They have evolved from traditional bluegrass to include an eclectic blend of Americana. Stan Hall takes care of the guitar duties, Singer Coats joins in on mandolin, and the soulful but lively Bonnie Bliss covers bass and vocals.
For this concert, Singer's dad Dennis Coats joined in on banjo.
Mobius Children's Museum contributed a free kids’ craft activity: making hats.
The concert was free thanks in part to event donors Harvard Park Children's Learning Center North, Numerica Credit Union, Rocket Bakeries, and Pizza Pipeline.
