Phinney Art & Music Series
Celebrating the Arts at WPPC
WPPC is proud to host a series of concerts and art displays in efforts to support local artists and musicians and welcome neighbors into our friendly and inviting space. The 2013-14 series will feature a wide variety of local musicians and artists. Often, artwork is made available for purchase and it is likely that patrons can meet featured artists during events.
Making the Arts Accessible
Now in its fourth season, WPPC views the Phinney Art & Music Series as a method of community outreach and subsequently strives to make access to events as reasonable as possible. Events are supported simply through donations collected at the door and during intermission. After accounting for event production expenses, proceeds from the Series are used to further the Phinney Art & Music Series as well as support the WPPC pipe organ restoration fund.

The Drunken Maidens
Inspired by groups such as Sweet Honey in the Rock and the Wailin’ Jennys, the maidens sing in tight vocal harmonies and play instruments such as fiddle, mandolin, guitar, dulcimer, whistle, and percussion. Threads from traditional ballads, shanties, old-time and bluegrass, folk dance tunes and even early music are woven together to produce their colorful and varied repertoire. Their blend of British and American, old and new material includes the wistful strains of old-time music, saucy English folksongs, ancient melodies, catchy tunes, and recently written songs.
