Singer-songwriter Gigi Love, who tells stories of America’s national parks in song, will present a live acoustic concert with a slideshow of her travels at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 19.

Love calls herself a “trails and rails troubadour,” and has traveled from park to park, “capturing each unique landscape in song” as she experiences the nature, learns about the history and gets to know the communities within the parks, according to a press release.

Between 2015 and 2017, Love worked on an album to commemorate the National Park Service Centennial, traveling to nearly two-dozen parks. Her folk music tells the stories of Yosemite, the Grand Canyon, Acadia, Glacier and more. She dedicated her album to “national park founders, the future generations, those who do not have access to nature, and Earth itself.”

The program is by donation and open to the public. The event will be held at the Helipad, 239 West Center Street. For more information call 310-678-8089.
