Islanders can celebrate the release of two new recordings by musicians Julie Mainstone and Kate McLeod.

The singer/songwriters are co-billing a night of music at 6 p.m. Sunday at Vashon Cohousing.

Mainstone is a school teacher by day and a music maven by night. She has completed her second recording, “On the Blessed Road,” which was recorded on Vashon at Village Sound Studios.

At Sunday’s concert, she’ll be joined by musicians who played on the recording and share her taste for traditional music, sung from the heart.

McLeod’s new album, recorded in a bookstore in Salt Lake City, includes a collection of songs inspired by books, spanning 30 years of songwriting.

She’ll also be accompanied by special guests, including islander Kat Eggleston, who produced McLeod’s CD.

In addition to her songwriting, McLeod is an accomplished fiddle player and has performed with numerous bands and performers through the years.
