A little bit of rain didn't deter music fans as they gathered Sunday at the Guthrie Green for the weekly Sunday concert sponsored by Tulsa Roots Music. 

Families brought their kids and many others brought lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy the free concert provided as part of the Tulsa Roots Rocks The Green concert series. 

Kids played in the rain on the lawn and they even danced together to the Colombian music of 'Herencia de Timbiqui,' the second act of the day. 

The light rain and 67-degree weather didn't deter the attendees, it simply brought them together under the covered shelter, or 'the dock,' at the Green. 

Tulsa Roots Music encouraged people to come out despite the rain on its social media pages. 

"The show must go on! Don't let a little rain cancel your plans. The bands are still performing!" the TMR wrote on its Facebook page. "Don't miss this intimate show with Tulsa Roots Music."

James McMurtry, Sunday's third act, played an acoustic set for the attendees.

The concert series is free and is a collaborative effort by groups including TMR, George Kaiser Family Foundation and the University of Tulsa. The four Sundays of free, all-ages music from international touring acts on Guthrie Green.

The final concert of the series will take place October 2, 2016, and will have a three-band lineup. For more information, visit the Guthrie Green website.
