Local acoustic trio Red June (think old-time, bluegrass, roots rock and traditional country influences with three-part harmonies) has been making a name for itself, playing three days at this year's MerleFest and opening for Steep Canyon Rangers last month. The band (Will Straughan, John Cloyd Miller and Natalya Weinstein) has also been hard at work on a sophomore album, Beauty Will Come. It was recorded and mixed at Hollow Reed Arts Studio late last year and officially released at the beginning of this month. Red June performs a CD-release show at the Altamont Theatre on Friday, June 15. The Honey Dewdrops open the 8 p.m. concert. $12. http://myaltamont.com. Photo by Kim LaViolette.
