Free Friday Concert: Simon Lynge

Come on out to Fort Worden Friday, July 12, and enjoy a free concert on the grounds right in front of The Commons!  Singer/songwriter Simon Lynge performs beginning at Noon.  Free admission, dogs welcome!

Simon Lynge has been to the future, and he likes what he saw, “I saw the mountains and the rivers and the beauty of us all”.

With those lines, Simon sums up his outlook on life and a basis for his music. His debut album, The Future, (just named Album of the Week by MDR – radio and TV in Germany) introduces Simon as a fully–formed contender for major success. It was recorded at Bright Orange Studios in Los Angeles with co– producers Matt Forger (Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney) and Jon Mattox (The Young Dubliners). The Future is a musical beauty worthy of the wide audience it is finding after entering the BBC UK charts at #22 one day after the June 7 release. It also hit #1 on the UK Rock charts. German Rolling Stone just did a two page feature on this new artist and The Koelner in Cologne said Simon’s music is “Full of fresh craftwork, positive energy and original ideas… This is so beautiful it makes you want to listen to it very loudly and again and again.”
