Brother Trucker will play on the lawn at the Jasper Winery in Des Moines on Thursday, June 12 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Des Moines’ Brother Trucker has released four roots rock albums, and they have become a Central Iowa staple. Their most recent release, The Flyover, came out in 2008. The performance is part of the Jasper Winery Summer Concert Series. The concert is free and open to the public, and food, wine, and other beverages will be available for purchase. Children are welcome when accompanied by an adult. The winery has limited seating available, so they recommend that patrons bring blankets and lawn chairs. For more information on Jasper Winery events, check out their website.
