Laarry Hanks, Deborah Robbins, Steve Strauss in Concert March 31

Mar 31, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$10 – $20

SFS is delighted to present American Songsters: Larry Hanks & Deborah Robins in a special Sunday concert, with guest Steven Strauss.

Larry Hanks, is known as a “folksingers’ folksinger”, who has been delighting audiences for over 50 years with his deep bass voice, sparse acoustic guitar accompaniments, and acclaimed Jew’s Harp playing.  Hanks is probably best known for his classic “folk” song, “Apple Picker’s Reel”.

Larry is performing with wife and musical partner, Deborah Robins, the two are becoming even more beloved for an eclectic repertoire of American traditional, work, blues, and political songs; the music of Utah Phillips, Larry Penn, Leadbelly, Sam  Hinton, Stephen Foster; and others in the pantheon of American vernacular/working people’s music. Actively touring Europe, the UK, and US, Hanks & Robins bring a warm and homey stage presence, most comfortable in creating an intimate musical evening, long remembered by all in attendance.

Steven Strauss is an undisputed master of the ukulele as a melody-forward solo lead (as opposed to solely rhythm).   His influence can be felt far and wide amongst West Coast acolytes, who clamor to hear an eclectic mix of jazz and traditional standards, played with precision in his sparse and thoughtful arrangements.

The concert is at Phinney Center Community Hall, 6507 Dayton Ave N, Seattle, Sunday, March 31 at 7:00 PM (Doors open at 6:30).  Advance tickets at sfs-larryhanks.brownpapertickets.com or 1-800-838-3006, and at our concerts prior to the show. $20; students/members/seniors, $18 and Youth 17 and under, $10.  $2 more adults at the door ($22/$20/$10) by check or cash.
