Nectar Lounge Performance: Stephanie Lee, Kathleen Yearwood & our very own Noel Franklin

Kathleen Yearwood, Canadian innovator of "folk - concrete" music, will make a rare Seattle appearance at Nectar Lounge Wednesday, November 11th.

She will be joined by local Seattle band, Stephanie Lee & the Northern Lights. Performance poet Noel Franklin will open the show.

Kathleen really is amazing, and I am personally enamored with Stephanie Lee & the Northern Lights--who evoke, at times, The Cowboy Junkies and Natalie Merchant. Kathleen is in a class of her own, and will be performing everything from 15th century french songs to her heart-rending ballad to Steven Jessie Bernstein.

Noel Franklin is coming out of retirement to read some poetry to kick off the set.

Come early! Nectar has great food and drinks. Doors are at 8:00. $3 cover.
