Higher Ground was established in early 1998 when a group of talented New Mexico musicians found they shared a common interest in Bluegrass music. Performing original material penned by members of the group, the band also plays a variety of Bluegrass oriented tunes to include traditional and contemporary selections. Their philosophy remains one of developing interesting arrangements of original material and lesser known songs, and adding something new and unique to standard bluegrass tunes. With four members providing vocal contributions, the swapping of lead and harmonies offers something new and appealing for each song in their repertoire.
During the concert, stroll the grounds, enjoy a magic show and check out the Garden's model train and the BUGarium. The Heritage Farm is open from 6pm-8pm. The Aquarium also is open during concert.
