The international pop and country singer-songwriter k.d lang will launch her U.S. “Ingénue Redux” tour with two benefit concerts at Vashon Center for the Arts at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Celebrating the 25th anniversary of her Grammy award-winning album, “Ingenue,” lang and her band will perform the entire original album in sequence, followed by other familiar songs. Australian classical guitarist Slava Grigoryan will open the show.

lang has been to Vashon numerous times to visit her manager and part time island resident Steve Jensen. The pair decided to waive artistic fees and donate proceeds from the two concerts to the Vashon-Maury Island Land Trust and Vashon Center for the Arts.

lang said taking care of the environment and supporting the arts “ in a beautiful place with a great community — to cultivate the arts on Vashon — and to have such a great venue to perform in” made the decision just made sense.

“k.d. loves Vashon,” Jensen said. “She is genuinely excited to do this show.”

Tickets are available at Vashon Center for the Arts and vashoncenterforthearts.org.
