Spring days, nights filled with art, music
As April is in full swing, it fills with shows to attend, art exhibits to see, and local bands to hear. Over the next few days, offerings range from a flamenco show in Port Townsend to a wet felting demonstration in Port Angeles.
Here are the highlights from this weekend – and beyond – on the northern Olympic Peninsula.
• Live music infuses Finnriver Farm & Cidery three times this weekend: Singer-songwriter Kristin Myers brings her lighthearted style from 5-7 p.m. tonight, then Sequim-based country band FarmStrong arrives for a show from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. pm Saturday. Beleza, a jazz duo consisting of Dmitri Matheny and John Stowell, is scheduled for 2-4 p.m. Sunday.
All shows are for all ages at Finnriver, 124 Center Road, Chimacum.
