|WILD IRISH BARN DANCE - This Friday!
This Friday evening, don't miss our wild Irish Barn Dance with visiting caller Shirleigh Brannon from 7:30-11 pm at the Manila Community Center! Shirleigh Brannon and Mathew Marshall will call Irish and Scottish social dances to superb music led by Humboldt's finest: with Blake Ritter on fiddle, David Boveri of Chicago on concertina, and more local friends. All dances are aimed at being fun and easy with no partner or experience needed. Great local beers, Irish coffee and snacks served. Admission is $7-10 sliding scale; kids under 12 free! Doors open at 7 pm. This promises to be an exhilarating dance evening!
CHERYL WHEELER & KENNY WHITE - March 25
Next up, we're thrilled to cosponsor Cheryl Wheeler at the Arcata Playhouse on Sunday, March 25! Songwriting doesn't get any better than hers... chances are that even if you don't yet know her name, you've already sung her songs - as have many of today's greatest performers. Cheryl will be joined for the evening with Kenny White, her longtime accompanist and a gifted songwriter in his own right. Tickets are $20 general, $18 HFS & Playhouse members, and are available at Wildberries Marketplace, Wildwood Music and The Works.
