Kristen Grainger and Dan Wetzel in Concert

The Seattle Folklore Society presents Kristen Grainger and Dan Wetzel of bluegrass band True North. Singer-songwriter Grainger's soul-baring vocals accentuate and amplify her eloquent songwriting. Wetzel moves easily between flat picking and finger-style, electric and acoustic guitars. The duo’s vocal harmonies convey a strong, almost telepathic musical connection. Make your reservations by telephone at 206.528.8523 or online at www.seafolklore.org.
