Enjoy ‘A Bluegrass Christmas’ in Langley with Weatherside Whiskey Band
Add a little fast-pickin,’ old-time music to your family’s holiday happenings this season. The Weatherside Whiskey Band returns to Langley for “A Bluegrass Christmas” at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 21 as part of Whidbey Island Center for the Arts’ Local Artist Series.
This four-piece, alt-country and bluegrass ensemble features Whidbey Island native Tanner McInerney, joined by Jakob Singer, Amy Meyer and Jacob Yackshaw, in a boot-stompin,’ fun-filled evening of holiday song favorites played with a little roadhouse style, and Weatherside originals the whole family can enjoy.
The Weatherside Whiskey Band has been resonating with Pacific Northwest crowds since 2011, building a strong fan-base with their energetic stage presence and catchy melodies created through excellent three-part vocal harmonies, acoustic guitar, mandolin, banjo and upright bass. (Check out the band’s EP release “Pickin’ the Pines.”) Musically, the Seattle-based Weatherside Whiskey Band takes its influences from traditional bluegrass greats (The Stanley Brothers, Doc Watson), a little bit of country (Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash) and folk rock (Old Crow Medicine Show, Mumford & Sons).
All seats for “A Bluegrass Christmas” are $20.
