Folk-rock singer-songwriter Calista Garcia’s music has a flair that is both her own creation and heavily influenced by Latin, blues, roots and pop. As seen on Season 16 of NBC’s The Voice, her “New Classic” style hearkens back to ’70s classic acts such as Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, Paul Simon and Joni Mitchell, but with a fresh modern twist.

Calista is a prolific songwriter who plays guitar, piano, ukulele, bass, mandolin and harmonica. She has been named as a 2022 Kerrville New Folk Winner. With her vocal range and delightful whimsy, the songs pop out like primary colors of the rainbow and just make things fun. Garcia is a talented songwriter whose journey has just begun to bloom as she steps steadfastly into the exciting future, she’s created.

Calista released her second EP called A Beautiful World on October 29 ,2021, mixed by Grammy Award- winning producer, Jim Scott in his vintage-equipped LA studio. This record is a follow-on to her debut collection “Wild Woman”, released in April 2019 to much critical acclaim, garnering a nomination for “Best Roots/Country EP” in the 2020 Independent Music Awards. The project has also won multiple nominations and awards from International Acoustic Music Awards (IAMA), the International Songwriting Competition (ISC) and the Mid-Atlantic Songwriting Contest (MASC).

The “Sunday Sounds In The Park” Concert Series is celebrating its 10th year of bringing great musical performances to historic Union Square Park. The series features a variety of music genres from local, regional, national, and international artists. Performances are on the last Sunday of the month from 4:00 to 7:00pm from April through October of each year. Bring your blanket, chairs, food and drinks and picnic in our beautiful 2 1⁄2 acre park while enjoying great music in good company. There is plenty of open lawn space and a pad around the park fountain to provide options for both those who want sunshine and those who prefer shade. The historic Union Square Springhouse serves as the stage for all shows and its dome roof provides a natural monitor effect that is a pleasant surprise to the artists.
