Folk singer-songwriter sets Gardiner concert

Deidre McCall, a mainstay on the folk scene for nearly 50 years, comes to the Olympic Peninsula for a concert at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 9, at Gardiner Community Center, 980 Old Gardiner Road.

Event organizers note McCall is “a dread-locked singer-songwriter-guitarist for close to five decades …[a] Black woman, mother, lesbian, feminist, has long been in the forefront of the growing number of Black musicians reconfiguring perceptions of how Black folk do folk.”

Tickets are $20 and available at the door.

With five independent albums to her credit, including her most recent release “Endless Grace,” McCall has performed for audiences from Maui to Maine, church basements and college coffeehouses to Carnegie Hall.
