Scott Patrick and Jaclyn Lovey will perform on the evening of July 20 at the Vista Summer Concert at Vista Ranch & Cellars, located at 7326 E. Highway 140 in Merced.

It will be a time to enjoy great music and a relaxing atmosphere while taking in the scenic view at the vineyard.  Guests are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets.

For the July 20 concert, the doors will open at 5:30 p.m., and as guests relax on the lawn under the oaks, headliner Patrick will open at 6:00 p.m.

The second act will be Jaclyn Lovey, who performed on “The Voice”.

According to Katelyn Grinder, Vista Ranch Event Coordinator, Patrick is an Indie-folk/country artist from the Sierra Nevada foothills.  He is a founding member and former vocalist with Cottonwood Creek, which was a local high energy Americana/country/folk duo.
