North Beach Amphitheater
The Deception Pass Park and Washington State Parks Folk & Traditional Arts Program invites the public to the Annual American Roots Music Series/Arts in the Park at Deception Pass State Park.
Thanks to the generous support of Island County and Deception Pass Foundation, this year’s series has expanded from four to eight concerts on Saturday evenings from 7-8p.m. from July 6 through August 24 at the North Beach Amphitheater. The concerts feature musical traditions from across America with the occasional world musical tradition sprinkled in for good measure. Admission is FREE to the performances, though a Discover Pass is required for vehicle access to the park.
Come early for best seating!
Our last concert this season! Please join us for Lisa Ornstein and Dan Compton — Quebecois and Acadian music
Virtuoso fiddler Lisa Ornstein and ace guitarist Dan Compton relish in musical conversation. They transcend the form of the fiddle-and-guitar duo by playing completely together from somewhere deep inside the music. A concert with Lisa and Dan takes you on a journey deep into the musical heartlands of Quebec and Appalachia, with side trips to Ireland, a sprinkling of songs, stories, and original compositions. The depth and diversity of Lisa’s musical experiences and her powerful playing find their match in Dan’s imaginative, innovative approach to guitar. Real deal music from players who know the traditions inside and out, served up fresh with a side of new tunes.
