Work crews at The Downs at Santa Fe will raise the roof Tuesday on a new summer stage that a local music producer hopes will attract musical groups to the city.

Quickbeam Systems Inc., an event-production firm in Albuquerque that provides staging infrastructure, is working with Santa Fe’s Heath Concerts to erect the 35-foot-high roof in anticipation of the first summer event at the site: Michael Franti and Spearhead’s Soulshine Festival on July 5.
