Bluegrass is American roots music. It is influenced by the music of Appalachia, as well as traditional Scottish, Irish and English music. It has also been influenced by the music of African-Americans. Bluegrass music is traditionally played on acoustic stringed instruments. A resonator guitar and occasionally a harmonica sometimes join the fiddle, five-string banjo, guitar, mandolin and upright bass.

Under the management and vision of Francisco Briseno, Cisco & The Racecars has taken its place as one of the premier bluegrass bands in the State of Arizona. The band finished first place in the Picking in the Pines Band Contest for 2014 and with that win had conquered all four bluegrass band contests in Arizona. Francisco, an Arizona State Banjo Champion, has gathered his band members over many years and together they've formed a highly unique and authentic sound. Although their roots are bluegrass, and they remain true to that tradition, they also play popular, country, and old-time music. The band plays festivals, special events, parties, weddings, and members also arranged and played 35 performances for the world premier theater production of "Burning in the Night".

У травні цього року відзначали 200-ту річницю з дня народження американського поета Волта Вітмена. Художники і художниці студії Aza Nizi Maza звернулись до Вітмена навесні, аби привітати його з днем народження. У віршах Вітмен писав, що кінець кінцем готовий відмовитися від усього, крім розмаїття своїх облич. Саме вони — багатогранні характери Вітмена — стали темою виставки.
