The November Acoustic Cafe features a double bill of musical talent: Windward Passage and Hearth.
Melanie Wiggins and Sara Horton are an indie folk duo called H E A R T H. Their quirky, soulful songs take on the vagaries of love in the time of frat-bros and nice-guys to inequality and immigration. They deliver it all with a sound reminiscent of Indigo Girls meets Simon & Garfunkel meets Kimya Dawson meets something-you-haven’t-quite-heard-yet. If you want to know more about Hearth, see their Instagram photos and videos at @wearehearth or visit wearehearth.tumblr.com.
Windward Passage, a guitar-flute-clarinet instrumental trio, performs pop, rock, classical, folk, show tunes and more. Flutist Susan Bour retired after 20 years with the President’s Own United States Marine Band. Guitarist Phil Bour was a guest artist for the Foggy Bottom Band and is accomplished in jazz improvisation. Clarinetist Michael Knight retired from The United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own” after 35 years of service, 10 of which he held the position of Concertmaster. He currently performs as principal clarinetist with the American Balalaika Symphony and The Virginia Grand Military Band.
The Acoustic Cafe is a free community concert series of newcomers and accomplished players that takes place at Walter Reed Community Center. The center is a beautiful green building in south Arlington. The cafe is officially part of the county’s 55+ Program, but folk of all ages may play and attend.
The show is free and open to people of all ages. Coffee and light refreshments will be available.
