“A magical night of music”

Local musical acts played to a full house at the release for their collective album “Vashon Calling”

Chocked full of the very best in music talent that Vashon-Maury Island has to offer, artists performing at the release party for their collective album “Vashon Calling” played to a full house on Friday, Nov. 8, at the Open Space for Arts and Community.

Musical acts, including Caspar Babypants, Allison Shirk and Saint Ophelia, had the audience of 300-plus singing along and swaying to the beat. Artists Pete Droge and Elaine Summers, who do not often perform on Vashon, delighted islanders with their performance of original tracks. Every artist brought their own unique sound and talent to the stage.

“Such a magical night of music,” said Pete Welch, one of the co-founders of Vashon Events, which presented the concert.

The evening started with a silent auction for items such as massages and local artists’ works. Money raised during the concert will help Vashon Events continue to provide a music library with free instrument rental for use at island schools as well as for other community members who are unable to purchase their own equipment and want to learn to play.

CDs of the “Vashon Calling” album were available for purchase and musicians sold their own concert T-shirts and CDs as well. A limited amount of CDs are still available online at vashonevents.org.

The next showcase of Vashon talent hosted by Vashon Events will be the seventh annual “Will Sing for Vashon” show that will benefit island nonprofits at 6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6, at the Open Space for Arts and Community. For more information and tickets, visit vashonevents.org.
