A dynamic duo reunites for a good cause

Several years ago, local musicians Daryl Redeker and Sarah Perlman played several much-appreciated concerts on the island as an energetic violin/fiddle and guitar duo named RedPerl.

But the pair hasn’t been seen onstage together lately — both musicians have been busy pursuing separate pursuits. But soon, they’ll reunite for an afternoon of blues, jazz and world music, in a concert slated for 4 p.m. Saturday at the Vashon Theatre.

The show is a benefit for Vashon Youth & Family Service, an organization with a mission to help island kids and families.

Both Redeker and Perlman are passionate about youth and will invite some of their young music students to join them during the performance.

Audiences can expect a set list of tunes that are influenced by blues, jazz and world music.

Redeker, a guitarist, singer and songwriter, has written and recorded since the 1970s.  He toured with sister Renee, opening for such big names as Phoebe Snow and John Denver.

Perlman, a violinist, plays as many styles of music as she can, from blues and folk to rockabilly and classical.  Locally, she plays with Rumor Has It, a string rock band, and with the Vashon Maury Chamber Orchestra, as well as in RedPerl.

Both musicians also teach privately. Tickets, $20, are on sale at, at the Vashon Bookshop and at the VYFS main office and the PlaySpace. VIP tickets are also available.
