Krista Jenkins is a fourth-generation Nevadan and resident of Carson Valley who brings a love of living in ranchland to her original songs. Joining Jenkins, who plays guitar and sings, are John Margolin on mandolin and vocals, and Dale Poune on guitar, banjo, slide guitar and vocals. Together, they form All Hat No Cattle, performing Roots, Americana and Country music.

“Krista and her band have always been a favorite of Carson Valley audiences,” park curator Mark Jensen said. “They bring a special sound to Western music, and the park is the perfect setting to enjoy such talented musicians.”

The hour-long, outdoor performance begins at 6 p.m. Admission is $5/person and tickets are only available at the performance, while they last. Children 16 and younger enter free. The gate opens at 5 p.m.

Visitors are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs or blankets. Soft drinks and water will be available for purchase, or visitors can bring a picnic and their favorite beverage. Dogs are not permitted in the park.

The final act in the park’s Twilight Acoustic Series will be the Irish-Celtic music of Ciana on August 28.

The park is located at 1450 Highway 88, about ¼ mile north of the Carson Valley Animal Hospital.  The park’s full event schedule is at dangberghomeranch.org.

The Dangberg Home Ranch Historic Park is the 2012 and 2013 Reno-Tahoe Territory winner of the Nevada Commission on Tourism’s “Discover Your Nevada” contest. The site preserves the home of Heinrich F. Dangberg and his descendants. The Dangbergs were a prominent ranching family in Carson Valley history and founded Minden in 1905. The site includes eight historic structures built between 1857 and 1917, along with a collection of 39,000 artifacts, documents and photographs acquired and used by the Dangberg family. Programs include tours, exhibits and other public events. The park is operated by Friends of Dangberg Home Ranch, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, in cooperation with Douglas County.
