Intimate Concert Setting at Empty Sea Studios: March Line-up
Empty Sea Studios is a little hidden gem in our neighborhood that I just discovered. It is right there in plain sight, but it's still easy to miss and not know what it's all about. The studio is located in a renovated Craftsman house on Phinney Ave and they present acoustic music "as it's meant to be heard". There is limited seating and the audience gets a feel that they are getting their own private concert. Empty Sea Studios books concerts in traditional music from all parts of the world, acoustic forms of jazz, folk, and blues, string band music, and non-Western classical music. It's an alcohol-free, family-friendly setting.
Here's the line-up for March from their website:
Saturday, March 20th at 8pm ($13 advanced / $15 at door)
Andrew Oliver Kora Band combines elements of jazz and traditional West African music to create a unique soul-stirring sound.
Sunday, March 21st at 11am ($9.99 / infants that are not yet walking are free)
Dance Tunes, Birdsong, and a Krummhorn with Charles Coldwell
Some kinds of music are inherently age-inclusive. KidsAcoustic presents real music that parents can enjoy for its own sake, while the lively tunes and wonderful instruments draw kids in naturally.
Sunday, March 21st at 7:30pm ($20 advanced/door)
Rachel Harrington - Rachel’s critically acclaimed 2007 debut, The Bootlegger’s Daughter, (featuring guest musicians John Reischman and Danny Barnes) went to #1 on the Euro-Americana Chart and landed the Seattle siren smack in the center of the UK Americana scene.
Rita Hosking - Kitchen tables, springs, loss, miners, mountains, culture clash, trailers, stray dogs, loggers, hope, forest fires—Rita Hosking’s country-folk music is this and more, and always fierce and lovely.
Saturday, March 27th at 8pm ($13 advanced / $15 at door)
Jeremy Facknitz - “Jeremy Facknitz is a one-man acoustic act with the panache needed to become a star, armed with a melodic voice and a truckload of charisma…” - Sydney Hamilton, Colorado Springs Independent
Teresa Storch - She’ll draw you in with her rich, engaging voice, rhythmic, percussive guitar and writing that has roots in folk, jazz and blues–pulling stories from real-life and taking snapshots of what matters most.
