SAINT SEPTEMBER
Saint September is Shannon Fulgham and Chris Davidson. While they were brought together through bluegrass, the music they make doesn’t quite fit the form. Exploring the history of the genre drew them to the harmonies and soulful songwriting of a number of brother duos popular in the era of the birth of bluegrass. The songs Chris and Shannon choose to cover range from these lesser known duos from the 1930s and ’40s to their favorite songwriters of today. They also share their own stories through songwriting heavily steeped in the sounds of American roots music. Listen to their music here. $10 donation. 7:30-9:30pm, Couth Buzzard Books Espresso Buono Cafe, 8310 Greenwood Ave N, Seattle, 436-2960

CURTIS & LORETTA
Curtis & Loretta's music comes straight from the heart. The husband and wife duo's extraordinary harmonies and proficiency on a parade of stringed instruments create an alluring frame for their poignant original songs, and carefully chosen traditional pieces from the British Isles, America, and beyond. The current menagerie includes Celtic harp, mandocello, mandolin, guitars, clawhammer banjo, and National steel ukulele, plus a bit of kazoo, harmonica, and shakers. Curtis' down-home sense of humor and Loretta's theater background engage the audience in an experience that runs the gamut of rolling with laughter to holding back tears, with plenty of side-trips in between. Listen to sound samples;  watch a video. $10 donation. 7:30-9:30pm, Couth Buzzard Books Espresso Buono Cafe, 8310 Greenwood Ave N, Seattle, 436-2960
