Well-known Native American flute player Mary-Beth Nickel returns as the featured musical guest for this month’s edition of the Nye Beach Summer Celebration. It takes place this Saturday, Aug. 10, from noon to 3 p.m., rain or shine, on the outdoor stage in the courtyard at Café Mundo.
Nickel joins the Thunder & Lightness World Beat Ensemble featuring traditional and indigenous rhythm and song with the Newport Drum Circle’s Chandler Davis, the Ocean Thunder Drummers, and special guests.
With the atmosphere of a neighborhood block party, the family-friendly all-community event welcomes all ages, dancing is encouraged, and light percussion is available for those who want to join in (lightly) from the audience. There is ample outdoor seating (some covered) and indoor or outdoor menu service is available.
Café Mundo is located at 209 NW Coast St., in the heart of Newport’s historic Nye Beach district. Contact Davis directly about the music at 541-272-4615 or [email protected]; see www.cafemundo.us or call 541-574-8134 for menu information or reservations.
