Willow Vane plays noon concert July 16 at WWU

Western Today staff

The 2014 Summer Noon Concert Series continues today, June 16, with a noon performance by local group Willow Vane on the PAC Plaza at Western Washington University.

Led by Russ Fish, of Ruby Parasols and Fairhaven Recording Studio, Willow Vane takes the folk/Americana sound to new ambient and electronic places.

The free Summer Noon Concerts take place throughout July at noon Wednesdays on the PAC Plaza, or in the Viking Union if it's raining.

Upcoming concerts:

July 23: Happy Valley Sluggers.

Bellingham’s own Louisiana-style Cajun band will be kicking up the fiddle and accordion to help Western feel a bit more like “The Big Easy.” All that will be missing will be the craw-dads and the étouffée. Get ready to tap your toes and feel the impulse to book a flight to Cajun-country.

July 30: City Hall.

Called a Bellingham “super group” by What’s Up! Magazine, City Hall is a 21st century band through and through, taking disparate influences from abroad (Grandaddy, Whitest Boy Alive, Dirty Projectors), combining them with contrasting styles from their own past and present projects, (The Palisades, Vervex, SoccerMom) and creating a sound steeped in Northwest tradition, yet boiling over its own borders.
