The Shaky Knees Festival may be taking place in Centennial Park this weekend, but avoid the crush of the crowds with some meadow jamming at the Dunwoody Nature Center.

The Rays perform May 14 at the Dunwoody Nature Center.

The Nature Center is hosting its summer concerts in the park series beginning today at 7 p.m. with music by The Rays, a local roots rock band.

The park series is sponsored by the city of Dunwoody.

Visitors are invited to bring chairs, blankets and a picnic dinner to listen to the music in the meadow or from the center’s back deck. Moondog Growlers will be on site selling craft beers. Seating is first come, first served.

Concerts are free to members, $5 for non-member adults, $3 for students and free for children 3 and under.
