Library’s Summertime Music! series kicks off Friday night

SEQUIM — The Sequim Library’s Summertime Music! Outdoor Concert Series brings music groups to Sequim for a trio of free Friday night concerts this month, the first being tonight.

Concerts are set for 6 p.m. at the library’s outdoor stage at 630 N. Sequim Ave. In the event of rain or inclement weather, concerts will be held inside the library.

Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets and picnic baskets.

Kicking off the series will be Farmstrong tonight. Jim Faddis, Cort Armstrong, Rick Meade and John Pyles collaborate in an acoustic quartet that taps into the roots of country and bluegrass genres for its American roots-based music.

Blending instrumental arrangements featuring the Caribbean steel pans and vocals, Caribe Steel Band on Aug. 24 will offer sounds of the Caribbean: reggae, calypso, soca, samba as well as pop tunes.

Rounding out the series Aug. 31 is Fat Chance, a dance band offering rock ’n’ roll classics and originals.

The band consists of John Christensen on bass and vocals, Jeff Joaquin on guitar, Max Fernades on guitar and mandolin and Joel Nilsen on drums.

Fat Chance has been playing across the Olympic Peninsula for more than 35 years.

The series is supported by the Friends of Sequim Library.
