Talented balladeers play Vashon

The vibrations of two voices and guitars, bouzouki, Celtic harp, Irish flute, whistle, recorder and piano, along with tar, dumbek and riqq (Middle Eastern percussion) will complement Triúir’s collection of traditional Elizabethan ballads, Celtic and medieval music, progressive folk and original songs.

A night of surf rock at the Bike

The surf rock band Shark Biscuit will have a free show at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 23, at Red Bicycle Bistro. Shark Biscuit plays music from the golden age of the 1950s and 60s, aiming to evoke memories of Dick Dale, the Belairs, the Chantays, the Ventures and Herb Alpert. Organizer Pete Welch describes the band as an “all-Vashon ensemble that parlays reverb-soaked guitar stylings, tribal drumming and rumbling bass lines with a powerful horn section and a rockin’ keyboard.” The show is for all ages until 11 p.m. and ages 21 and older after that.
