Vocalist to perform at Suncrest Village
Northwind Arts Center welcomes Judith-Kate Friedman, at 2 p.m. Wednesday, April 24, in a free concert at Suncrest Village, 251 S. Fifth Ave. in Sequim. This will be the first Arts to Elders concert held outside Port Townsend. Friedman is an award-winning performing songwriter, folk/roots recording artist, and producer.
Once called “the Billie Holiday of folk music” Friedman’s voice and song writing have been likened to both Joan Baez and Ani DiFranco.
The Arts to Elders concert series is an outreach service of Northwind Arts Center in cooperation with Port Townsend’s five senior residential care centers. The concerts normally rotate among the centers, but are open and free to all. This will be the first concert in Sequim.
