The City of Buellton's recently launched arts and culture program was given the green light by the Buellton City Council to move ahead with a scheduled set of May “Buellton Bach & Bluegrass Stroll” performances. 

Two professional-level Solvang Conservatory students will stroll through designated neighborhoods of Buellton playing lively music in an effort to brighten the spirits of those homebound due to COVID-19 restrictions. 

Spectators are asked to stay on their front porch or yard area to maintain appropriate social distancing, as the musicians stroll by.

According to a spokesperson for the arts program, Solvang Conservatory founder and director Diane Byington, who applied for the Buellton Arts & Culture grant, said that she and her students are "thrilled to be able to share the joy of music with Buellton’s residents during this stressful time.” 

The multi-day walking performances will be led by conservatory students Kaitlyn Greenwood on violin and Luke Hemming on guitar.

The dates and times for the performances are as follows:

  • May 13 10 a.m. to noon: Second Street and Sycamore Ranch neighborhoods; and 1-3 p.m. at Meadow Ridge neighborhood
  • May 16 10 a.m. to noon: Second Street, Central Avenue, and Avenue of Flags neighborhoods; 1-3 p.m. at Valley Station, Juliet Walk, and Park Street neighborhoods
  • May 20 10 a.m. to noon: Valley Vineyard Village and Thumbelina neighborhoods
  • May 23 10 a.m. to noon: Ballard Canyon and Rancho de Maria neighborhoods
