South Whidbey park performance set for Aug. 15

F Street Project featured band at free concert

South Whidbey Parks & Recreation District second summer free concert features F Street Project 6-7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 15.

Concerts take place at Langley’s Community Park, 5495 Maxwelton Road. Bring a picnic dinner, grab a blanket or lawn chair.

The F Street Project features stellar players performing an eclectic mix of music from rock to jazz with excursions into country and blues along the way. The enchanting vocal talents of Dawn Madsen and Devi Rae Dawn compliment the super tight combo of drummer Corey Fish and bassist Charlie Gould.

Rounding out the group are blues guitarist Stacy Weick and keyboardist Richard Lowell, the group’s leader and founder. Whidbey’s own Bruce Gallagher plays sax and flute.
