The Kathy Kallick Band with Cliff Perry and Laurel Bliss @ Kenyon Hall
Jan 26 @ 7:30 pm

These two ensembles have performed extensively throughout the Northwest, but this collaboration—an all-gospel show— is a first.

Kathy Kallick’s exceptional career includes winning a Grammy and two IBMA Awards, receiving a Lifetime Membership from the California Bluegrass Association, co-founding the internationally-acclaimed Good Ol’ Persons, and collaborating with the country’s top acoustic musicians, including her mighty current band Annie Staninec (fiddle), Greg Booth (dobro, banjo), Tom Bekeny (mandolin), and Cary Black (acoustic bass), all of whom provide sterling harmony vocals.

Cliff Perry and Laurel Bliss began as a singing due more than thirty years ago, and are now recognized as the most important contemporary interpreters of the songs of the Carter Family. Together they formed the heart of Southfork, a legendary Northwest bluegrass band, and they continue to sing with the compelling sincerity of classic country music, playing soulful dobro and guitar that support their powerful vocals.

Please visit kathykallick.com for more information.

Classic Novels/Movies Book Club @ Paper Boat Booksellers
Mar 1 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

Classic Novels (and Movies) book club at Paper Boat Booksellers: join us to read the classics!

Our first book will be Jane Austen’s Emma-it’s a long one, but full of subtle humor and wit!

This club will meet to read classic works of fiction from any era and country, beginning with nineteenth-century England. We will discuss them as literary works and as the basis for recent film adaptations as available. If there are no movies released in the near future, we will simply choose another great novel to read, as a group.

To begin, we will read Jane Austen’s Emma, which has inspired a film version Emma (dir. Autumn de Wilde; scheduled for release in late February 2020).

Discussion leader: West Seattle native Julia Douthwaite Viglione lived in Indiana for many years as professor of French literature at Notre Dame and is delighted to be back home! She proposes this club as a fun and intellectually stimulating way to enjoy reading psychologically deep, complex works of fiction with other people. With the release of new films inspired by classics, it’s especially intriguing to read the “real thing” and observe the changes made…
