PORT TOWNSEND — A singing workshop will precede a concert by Elizabeth LaPrelle and Brian Dolphin in Port Townsend on Friday.

The workshop will be from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Quimper Grange, 1219 Corona St., Port Townsend. Admission is $20.

LaPrelle and Dolphin will teach some of their favorite American traditional and original lullabies that they have arranged for two- and three-part harmony. The limit is 30 people; masks and proof of vaccination are requested.

The concert of traditional and original harmonies starts at 7 p.m., with doors opening at 6:30 p.m.

LaPrelle and Dolphin are a married duo who share a love of vocal harmonies, traditional songs and heartfelt originals.

LaPrelle is a ballad singer and scholar from rural Virginia and Dolphin is a songwriter, producer and ethnomusicologist who has studied folk music all over the world.

They both taught at Voiceworks last summer.

“There will be many stringed instruments and decades of experience at these events,” according to a press release.

“A concert with them is like being a guest at their kitchen table, so very welcoming, and you will be invited to sing at times.”
