"ArtsWest Benefit Musical Sunday"

ArtsWest After Hours presents the homespun musical fun of MotherFolk in a benefit concert Sunday, April 26, at 7:30 p.m. All proceeds will benefit the artistic programming at ArtsWest.
“It’s going to be a fun night of music and entertainment in support of a great community cause,” said MotherFolk singer Katya Spielberg. “And if our last gig at Kenyon Hall was any indication, there might even be dancing!”
Featuring rich harmonies from lead singers/guitar players Spielberg and Sheelagh Hunt, MotherFolk offers a broad range of original and cover tunes which seamlessly cross the folk, country, blues, and jazz genres.
“We are so lucky to have MotherFolk back on the ArtsWest stage,” said After Hours Director Dennis Fish “They are a terrific example of the talent that West Seattle generates.”
Joining Katya and Sheelagh on April 26 will be Mark Webb on lead guitar/mandolin, Bob Smith on bass, Greg Fields on drums, and Richard Polishuk on vocals, electric ukulele and slide guitar. Special guest appearance by Sasha Friedrich, singer and violinist. A crowd pleaser for all ages, MotherFolk plays the kind of music that warms the heart and touches the soul.
Tickets are $10 and all proceeds to benefit ArtsWest, 4711 California Ave. S.W., 938-0339.

Bio

We are a versatile 5-piece ensemble offering a broad range of original and cover tunes which seamlessly cross the folk, country, blues, and jazz genres. The five of us thoughtfully choose our covers to maximize our vocal and harmonizing talent and agility with stringed instruments (acoustic/electric guitar, dobro, slide guitar, acoustic/electric Mandolin and electric bass). We are folk, we are soft rock, we are occasionally dance music, but most important, we connect with our audience. They stop what they are doing to listen because we capture their sadness, kindness, happiness and hope in our songs. But mostly, we entertain.
