The tenth annual South Whidbey Acoustic Music Festival is 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 30 at the South Whidbey Tilth Farmers’ Market at the intersection of Highway 525 and Thompson Road.

Five artists, ranging from Nashville-bred singer-songwriter Michelle Molner to the flatland folk of Puget regulars The Muse & eye, will perform for customers as they shop and mingle around the market.

Organic produce and handmade crafts, as well as prepared food and coffee, will be available from local vendors. Coolers will be on hand to keep purchases cold while patrons stay and enjoy the music.

The lineup includes three local Whidbey Island acts: Blues/rock singer-songwriter and novelist Rick Vander Kam, Clinton resident Cecilia Jacobson-Ross and Timothy Hull, a seasoned Northwest singer-songwriter, born and raised on Whidbey, whose lyrics explore everyday life.

A suggested donation of $15, or whatever patrons are able to pay, supports these artists.

Festival organizer Russell Clepper of the Muse & eye said he is proud of this year’s line-up.

“I’m particularly glad that Timothy Hull can make it this year,” Clepper said in a prepared statement . “He was supposed to perform in the very first festival in 2010, but got held up in a long line of cars at the Mukilteo ferry and couldn’t make it in time.”

In the weeks following the festival, the Tilth Farmers’ Market will continue to host live music during its regular hours of 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Sunday.

Visitors can find ready-to-eat hot food to enjoy on picnic tables while listening to live music. Vendors have fresh local produce, flowers, bread and crafts of many kinds. SNAP and FMNP customers are welcome. For more information, visit or call 360-321-0757.
