CREAMERY DISTRICT – Laurie & Kathy Sing the Songs of Vern & Ray brings together two of the world’s best bluegrass artists performing the songs of their highly-esteemed California predecessors, Vern Williams and Ray Parks. Williams and Parks’ hard-core traditional bluegrass in the high lonesome style has found its perfect interpreters in fiddler Laurie Lewis and guitarist Kathy Kallick, both of whom learned from and sometimes played with Vern and/or Ray.
Both Lewis and Kallick are Grammy award winners. Lewis has recorded more than 20 albums, with Kallick close behind with her recent 19th release.
For an evening of glorious real-deal bluegrass, with vocal and instrumental fireworks, don’t miss Laurie Lewis on fiddle and vocals and Kathy Kallick on guitar and vocals with Tom Rozum (mandolin, vocals), Cary Black (bass, vocals) and Patrick Sauber (banjo) this Sunday, March 29 at 7 p.m. at the Arcata Playhouse, 1251 Ninth St. in Arcata. Tickets are $18/$15 for Playhouse and Humboldt Folklife Members and are available at Wildberries Marketplace or by calling (707) 822-1575. arcataplayhouse.org
