“A treat for the audience”: Duo set to perform Saturday in Coyle’s Concerts in the Woods

The show is set to begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Laurel B. Johnson Community Center, 923 Hazel Point Road.

COYLE — Seattle-based composer and musician Katie Kuffle, joined by guitarist Lana McMullen, will perform Saturday at the Laurel B. Johnson Community Center as part of the ongoing Concerts in the Woods series.

“When I first heard Katie Kuffel’s voice against her piano playing, I thought of Norah Jones as it is a new jazz style with some excellent piano work backing it up,” said Norm Johnson, Coyle Concerts founder.

“Then, I learned that Katie has been playing shows with a talented singer that I have known since she was a high school student on Bainbridge Island, Lana McMullen. To get the two of them together for one show is really going to be a treat for the audience.”

The performance is set to begin at 7:30 p.m. at the community center, 923 Hazel Point Road.

Admission to the all-ages show is by donation.

Complimentary cookies and coffee will be offered at intermission.

Kuffel’s first full-length album, “Pearls,” was released in October 2015 after a successful Kickstarter campaign, according to her biography.

Her first EP, “Animal Pragmatist,” was released in 2013.

Kuffel’s music is described on her website as a contemporary sound that draws from blues, jazz, and folk music as well as her training in classical cello and jazz piano.

“An openly queer artist, she explores concepts of sexuality and femininity throughout her works,” according to her biography.

McMullen’s 2015 debut album, “Traveling Light,” features material from the years following her move to Seattle, her Americana roots, her background as a classical singer and her experiences as an experimental artist, according to her biography.

The community center is located at the southern tip of the Toandos Peninsula and is operated by the Jefferson County Parks and Recreation District with help from area residents.
