With Monday’s solar eclipse being what my grandmother would call, “a feast for the eyes,” you ought to spend this weekend catering to your auditory faculties by giving your sun-scorched retinas a much needed rest.
On Friday, things are set to get specific at the Dayaalu Center as Nicolas Carter, an internationally acclaimed Paraguayan harpist, will be performing at 7:30 p.m.
Carter has been composing, recording and performing music for more than 25 years as both a solo artist and with Latin American and world music ensembles. He finds inspiration for his original compositions from nature and integrates these reflections with humor, creating a warm and inviting experience for all ages.
Tickets are $18 in advance; $23 at the door Call 206-436-9388 or visit www.dayaalucenter.com.
At 7:30 p.m. on Saturday head out to Rolling Bay Hall to catch a musical double-header with The Weather Machine and Sheers, presented by Space Craft
“Melodicism” and classical stylings converge in the brooding soundscapes of Portland-based trio Sheers. Frontwoman Lily Breshears, a classical harpist and pianist, combines catchy choruses and honest lyrics with tension-laden composition, creating a distinct sound closest to “trip-hop.”
Immediate gratification is not to be expected, as Breshears strives for catharsis being well deserved.
On April Fools Day 2013, Portland-based project The Weather Machine released their first full-length album after a blustery winter of recording on the Oregon Coast. With its strong ties to the region, the band roots itself firmly in a Pacific Northwest folk aesthetic, but holds on tight to a hard-hitting love for alt-rock.
Celebrate the day of rest by heading down to the Treehouse Café at 7 p.m. on Sunday.
Celtic stars Hanz Araki and Colleen Raney will be joined by Elly Marshall and Miles Isacke.
This combination of powerful players from the northeast corner of the states will entertain and delight audiences with songs and tunes in the Irish tradition.
An accomplished singer and flute player from Bainbridge Island now living in Portland, Maine, Araki has been prominent in the Irish music community in the United States and Japan for more than two decades.
Tickets, $18 each, are on sale for this 21-and-older concert.
