St. Patrick’s Day Weekend
Arts Place introduces direct from Ireland the six award-winning musicians of FullSet. The band consists of a smooth and free flowing fiddle (Michael), mastery of the uilleann pipe (Seán), traditional button accordion (Janine), the rhythm of the bodhrán (Eamonn), the skill of the guitar (Andy) and the emotive singing (Teresa); effortlessly blended together to bring audiences a high energy, innovative, yet traditional Irish sound.

Lisa Biales and EG Kight
Saturday, April 5, 2013
We wrap up the 2013-14 Hall-Moser Series with “Belle of the Blues” Lisa Biales and “Georgia songbird” EG Kight. The Cascade Blues Association writes, "Lisa Biales has one of those great voices of our times." Lisa certainly sings from the heart, writing playful music about the simple things in life that feel like they have been around forever. Her down home blues vernacular and finger style guitar have been praised Blues in Britain, the Cincinnati Enquirer, and Rootstime (Belgium). Her song Playing With Angels went to #1 in Australia on the Independent Folk Radio Charts. Lisa is joined by EG Kight, who has performed on A Prairie Home Companion and recently opened for BB King.
