NEWPORT COAST — It definitely wasn't something you'd associate with a beach town like Newport Beach.
Sun shining and blue sky overhead, the four Wimberley siblings filled the Sage Hill School courtyard with the sounds of traditional bluegrass music, banjo and all.
With Michael, 12, as lead singer, twins Mark and James, 16, on the guitar and banjo and Danielle, 17, on the bandolim, the quartet showed Sage Hill families and guests another side to the county.
"When we were younger we heard bluegrass on CD and really liked it," Mark said. "It's energetic, fast. It's hard to find bluegrass in California."
And exploring local diversity was exactly what Saturday at the Newport Coast private high school was all about as it celebrated its 10th annual multicultural festival.
