David Grisman’s Dawg Trio with Danny Barnes & Sam Grisman

Mandolin innovator and Jerry Garcia collaborator David Grisman will team up with his son Sam Grisman, on bass, and banjo wizard Danny Barnes to deliver the Dawg Trio.

David, who began his career in the folk and blues revival of the 1960s, originated the signature mix of bluegrass, Latin rhythms, and a myriad of global influences into a holistic approach he calls “dawg music.”

The trio will perform two shows on Sunday, Nov. 14 at Kay White Hall, at 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Get tickets at vashoncenterforthearts.org.

Vashon Repertory Theatre presents play reading series

Vashon Repertory Theatre (VRT), in partnership with Vashon Center for the Arts (VCA), will spend this winter season reading from new plays by island and Northwest playwrights in its VRT Incubator series.

The series will start with Bryan Willis’ “Kichi in the Woods of Present Memory,” at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 15, at VCA. The play tells the story of three Japanese soldiers who survived 15 months at sea only to be enslaved by Native Americans at Neah Bay. The event is pay-what-you-can and will be held in the VCA atrium.

On Monday, Dec. 20, VRT will introduce islander Kat Eggleston’s one-act play “Dreoilin,” which is based on one of her favorite Irish folk songs.
