The Sons of Norway Hall, 131 W. Fifth St., is the place where fiddler Erin Hennessey, guitarist David Rivers and five storytellers will gather for Saturday’s 7:30 p.m. party. The Story People of Clallam County, a nonprofit group, is inviting everyone. Admission is a $10 donation, or $5 for students and for children 11 and younger.
Rivers and Hennessey, two young players known for their jubilant sound, will step up along with tale-spinners Erran Sharpe, Jan Yates, Pat Peterson and James “the Obscure” Hodgson.
This is an opportunity to hear a pair of young and accomplished musicians. While Hennessey is the 17-year-old winner of the 2012 Port Angeles Symphony Young Artists Competition among other honors, Rivers is an alumnus of Boston’s Berklee College of Music who has played the Wintergrass and Northwest Folklife festivals with his former band Abby Mae & the Homeschool Boys.
Also at this party, guests can hear about the Forest Storytelling Festival, to be held in Port Angeles in mid-October.
Festival director Cherie Trebon will offer a brief talk on the events, which include performances and workshops at Peninsula College.
Proceeds from Saturday’s event will go toward keeping Forest Storytelling Festival ticket prices affordable, said Richard Seaman, spokesman for the Story People of Clallam County.
For more information, phone Seaman at 360-457-4881.
