SEQUIM — Folk singer and guitarist Dennis Blair will bring his repertoire of songs from the 1960s and ’70s to the next Music Live with Lunch concert at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 525 N. Fifth Ave., on Tuesday.

With tunes such as “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” “Dream a Little Dream of Me,” “Call Me Mr. Blue” and “It’s Now or Never,” Blair bills himself as a folk singer because he “sings to the folk.”

He’ll do so for a good half-hour starting at noon Tuesday; then everyone is invited to sit down for a hot meal in the parish hall.

Like all of the musicians who perform at this monthly event, Blair is volunteering his time.

Tickets are $10 for Music Live with Lunch, a monthly program offered to anyone who likes some nourishment in the middle of the day.

A vegetarian lunch is available on request, and the number for information is 360-683-4862.

Blair, now a Port Angeles resident, grew up in Erie, Pa. He taught himself to play guitar at 12 and went on to numerous rock ’n’ roll and country bands.

His mother would take Blair and his brother Roger, a drummer, to play at nursing homes around Erie.

Now, the singer-guitarist says his musical life has come full circle: He brings his music to assisted living communities on the North Olympic Peninsula.
