Columbia City Church of Hope
3818 S Angeline St
Coyote Grace: This sultry trio combines virtuosic musicianship combined with a humble, warm stage presence, all stemming from a history of self-invention — and re-invention. "Coyote Grace plays with the heart of traditional country and Americana music, but tells their stories with a bold twist," says the Indigo Girls' Amy Ray. "They write heartwrenching melodies and make such textured harmonies that I find myself enraptured and taken by their timelessness of song."
Amber Darland: One of the most exciting emerging singer/songwriters of the pacific northwest. In July 2009, Amber released her third studio recording and debut full length album "Truce" which is quickly gaining attention from audiences across the nation. In October, she was named the winner of the 2009 North Carolina Songwriter's Coop Song Competition. Her intensely personal music has the passion reminiscent of Patty Griffin, Lucinda Williams and Shawn Colvin and the soulfulness of K.D. Lang, the Carpenters and Dar Williams.
Everything But Marriage: A collective of singer/songwriters that together make up the new Seattle-based pop/folk/indie band Everything But Marriage. EbM blends a unique and toe-tapping acoustic sound with jazz and alt. country influence.
Doors open at 6:30pm, Concert begins at 7pm
