We are very excited about our summer season – a few of the highlights include:
- Bluegrass star Tim O’Brien who is here for Voice Works and will headline the Country Roots & Bluegrass concert
- Tradition bearers in their golden years paired with young artists – whose enthusiasm and drive is keeping traditional music thriving – for The Festival of American Fiddle Tunes
- Twice as many readings, free to the public, for the Port Townsend Writers’ Conference featuring some of this country’s top writers including Cheryl Strayed, whose memoir “Wild” received rave reviews last week from the New York Times (no tickets required)
- The debut of veteran songstress Mary Stallings and the Eric Reed Trio whose recent recording was also praised by the New York Times earlier this month along with a celebration of Academy Award-winning composer Johnny Mandel (“Shadow of Your Smile”) for Jazz Port Townsend
- One of the most exciting arrays of blues artists ever assembled for the inaugural season of our new artistic director for the Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival – Daryl Davis
- Our season finale featuring Los Lobos, one of the most eclectic and exhilarating bands anywhere!
Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to seeing you this summer at Centrum!
