The longtime rock band The FieldHands will play original music at the Red Bike beginning at 8:30 p.m. Friday. The FieldHands’ music blends rock, alternative country and Americana, with driving guitar lines and soaring lead instrumentals. Show organizer Pete Welch says the band incorporates local flavor and imagery into its lyrics.

“They write songs about love, friendship, journeys, the road beneath their feet and the waster that surrounds us,” he said.

The FieldHands’ new CD will be available, and Vashon guitar aficionado Phil Royal will open the free show. The show is for all ages until 11 p.m. and 21 and older after that.
