July 12: Music on the Lawn: Tapwater

Tapwater from Portland is a boisterous sextet with lots of vocal harmonies, drums aplenty, piano, electric guitars, steel pands, saxophones, accordions, upright bass, and whatever else they can fit on the ferry. This is a very danceable and strangely exotic band playing roots music. They perform at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 12 at Island Rec's Music on the Lawn Free concert series on the lawn at the Historical Society grounds on Price Street in Friday Harbor. 

Bring blankets or lawn chairs, a picnic if you're hungry - FANS will offer snacks and beverages for sale - and enjoy an evening of great music. Please, no pets or alcohol. Pack it in, pack it out.
