As the sun sets through a forecast of clear skies Friday night, the bluegrass band that helped Steve Martin and Martin Short open the new Hancher Auditorium will return for a free outdoor concert on Hancher’s green grass. Honoring bluegrass traditions but committed to its present and future as well, the Steep Canyon Rangers will have audience members of all ages up and dancing in this event designed to welcome students back to campus — and the community to Hancher’s front yard. Bring chairs, jackets, blankets and picnics or purchase dinner and beverages from food trucks stationed in Hancher’s parking lot.

Steep Canyon Rangers

7 p.m. Friday (9/14), Hancher Green, 131 E. Park Rd., Iowa City; free admission; Hancher.uiowa.edu/2018-19/SCanyonRangers
