Heddwen, Larsen Gardens, and Meghan Yates: A Night of Alt-Folk at the Alternative Library @ Alternative Library

Heddwen, Larsen Gardens, and Meghan Yates in concert at the Alternative Library, July 20th

The Alternative Library (519 E Maple St.) presents a night of beautifully crafted alternative folk music from Seattle’s Heddwen and Larsen Gardens, joined by Bellingham’s Meghan Yates, on Saturday, July 20th. Doors open at 7:30 pm, music begins at 8:00. All ages welcome, admission $6-10 (sliding scale).

Heddwen is an original alt-folk duo with singer-songwriters Riley Skinner and Katie Rudman, featuring complex harmonies over simple folk progressions. They are based in Seattle, WA.

Larsen Gardens is the project of Seattle-based singer-songwriter Sarah Edmonds, whose intimate lyrics, soft vocals, and buoyant acoustic guitar build ethereal, reflective folk songs.

Meghan Yates is a Bellingham-based experimental joy folk fusion singer-songwriter whose musical career began in Portland, ME. Whether solo or when other players join, the music she creates often uplifts, penetrates and inspires the listener.
