The Weavils in concert on Wednesday, 7pm at Shoreline City Hall

Wednesday, August 24, 2011, 7pm, Shoreline City Hall, 17500 Midvale Ave N, Shoreline WA 98133, The Weavils in a free concert, sponsored by the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council and Aljoya Thorton Place.

The is the final concert of the Summer of Fun Concerts in the Park Series.

"We have saved the best for last, and you’re not going to want to miss this high-energy, roots bluegrass band. Presenting this show at Shoreline City Hall means concert goes can come early and take in the beautiful artwork featured in the Gallery at Shoreline City Hall. The grass area at city hall is very sloped, so folding chairs are highly encouraged. Rain or shine, the music will be fine."

Lead by their entertaining MC and banjo player, Greg Lawless, the band performs a variety of genres, making them not only hard to classify, but uniquely diverse. You will hear not only bluegrass, but Western Swing, Cajun, “Celtgrass,” Hawaiian and even a rendition of a recent pop song made famous by Norah Jones. 

Blended into the mix are songs written by their talented fiddle and mandolin player, Mark Steudel. All of these songs are tied together by the harmonious sounds of a magnificent dobro, played by Mark Meyers, who also provides the sweet harmonica interludes. The rhythm section, led by Pete Thorn (guitar) and Mike Karbowski (bass), keeps the band on the beat. No introductions could be complete without mentioning the mellow baritone voice of David Grout, who elevates the vocal numbers to stratospheric heights. 

The 2011 Summer of Fun Concerts in the Park Series’ season sponsor is Aljoya Thorton Place.  Call 206-306-7920 for more information.
