Hey Mavis with Hal Walker UU Church of Kent Capital Campaign Kickoff Concert

When: Sun., Sept. 27, 7 p.m. 2015

Billed as “a musical feast that contains a pinch of jazz, bluegrass, old-timey, and folk, and a heaping spoonful of rock,” tonight’s benefit concert features two terrific local acts — the Americana act Hey Mavis and singer-songwriter Hal Walker. A finalist in the Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Contest , Hey Mavis saw its 2010 CD “Red Wine” clock in at No. 13 in Folk Alley’s Top CDs of 2010. It charted alongside new releases by national acts such as Tim O’Brien, Peter Rowan, Mary Chapin Carpenter, The Chieftains, and Bob Dylan. Walker plays “soul-searching songs that celebrate community, diversity and the creative process.” The Kent-based musician composes and improvises on the guitar, piano, harmonica, the khaen, jew’s harp and concertina. Proceeds from this concert to the Capital Campaign of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Kent. (Niesel)
