Music and Art in Coupeville

Every year in August people come from near and far to attend the Coupeville Arts & Crafts Festival, which will take place this coming weekend on the 13th and 14th. The festival highlights a wide variety of craft styles, with over 200 vendors selling their work.

Bands will be playing all day Saturday and Sunday, right next to the Coupeville Library. This year not one but TWO bands are made up of teens from Snohomish and Island counties.

Well Known Stranger - 2:00 pm Saturday

Well Known Stranger is a multifaceted band that plays classic Celtic tunes as well as their own mixture of Celtic inspired indie rock. They hail from Marysville.

For the Birds - 10:00 am Sunday

For the Birds are an indie eclectic rock band from the south end of Whidbey Island.

It would be remiss of me not to mention that I'm a bit biased when it comes to For the Birds - they're dear friends of mine, and just happen to have recorded their music in my living room. I'm really looking forward to hearing them play a live outdoors show on Sunday.

And I can't wait to see Well Known Stranger, too. As always, I'm amazed at the talent our Sno-Isle teens have to offer the world. I hope you can get out and hear them play too! It's a great opportunity to soak up the sun and enjoy some free entertainment in a beautiful location.
