DEL REY
Del Rey started playing guitar when she was four years old. At thirteen, she was immersed in the world of folk music, via the San Diego Folk Festival. She has tried to get a whole band onto her solo instrument from the beginning. This gives her music an interesting complexity, especially when applied to the ukulele. Rags, blues and tunes of the early 20th century are her specialty, even as she writes new music to add to the tradition. Del Rey also has fashion sense that would make Minnie Pearl smile. $15 donation for musician, $3 donation for the bookstore. 7:30-9:30pm, Couth Buzzard Books Espresso Buono Cafe, 8310 Greenwood Ave,Seattle, 436-2960

KLAPADOOWOPELLA
KlapaDooWopella specialize in traditional Croatian “Klapa” singing. Klapa singers are a cappella minstrels that hang out on boat docks and street corners along the Adriatic coast of Croatia. KlapaDooWopella was formed in 1979 in Seattle. The name “KlapaDooWopella” comes from the “klapa” music of the Dalmatian Coast, “DooWop” music from the streets of America, and all sung in “acapella” style. Thus, KlapaDooWopella. The members of the quartet are Justin Ferris (High Tenor), Ted Hunter (Lead), Jim Hoath (Baritone) & Bill Weis (Bass). $10 donation for musicians, $3 donation for the bookstore. 7:30-9:30pm, Couth Buzzard Books Espresso Buono Cafe, 8310 Greenwood Ave,Seattle, 436-2960

BRYAN BOWERS
Bryan Bowers has become a major artist on the traditional music circuit. He has redefined the autoharp and is also well known as a singer-songwriter. Bryan has a dynamic outgoing personality and an uncanny ability to enchant a crowd in practically any situation. His towering six foot four inch frame can be wild and zany on stage while playing a song like `Dixie’ and five minutes later he can have the same audience singing `Will The Circle Be Unbroken’ in quiet reverence and delight. For nearly three decades, Bryan Bowers has been to the autoharp what Earl Scruggs was to the five-string banjo. He presents instrumental virtuosity combined with warmth, eloquence, expression and professionalism. $15 donation for musician, $3 donation for the bookstore. 7:30-9:30pm, Couth Buzzard Books Espresso Buono Cafe, 8310 Greenwood Ave,Seattle, 436-2960
