I first met Kerry in 2011 at FAR-West and was struck by the warmth and sincerity of his music. I then saw him again at FAR-West 2013 where he had an Official Showcase. Kerry is a singer, songwriter, storyteller, therapist, comedian, word painter, and masterful entertainer and has been called a musical Norman Rockwell. Those who are lucky enough to catch him in concert, leave a different person. The range of the experience for many runs from laughter and lightness to depth and connection and the realization of a shared humanity. That’s the thread he weaves into every performance because it’s the center of who he is: he knows that being human means we want to laugh, we want to be thoughtful, we want to be nostalgic, we want to feel connected, we want to sink into our hearts and we want to feel the entire range of our emotions so that we can take our full selves back home and maybe even remember to be more present in our relationships. Kerry is a former member of the folk group, The New Christy Minstrels.
Olympia Acoustic Music is a house concert series bringing outstanding nationally touring singer/songwriters to Olympia. We began in 2010 and have presented over 60 shows. All concert donations (suggested donation: $20) go directly to support the artists.
Performances are intimate and seat about 26 people at our house with a lovely view of Budd Inlet. We serve potluck refreshments; most people bring an appetizer, dessert or beverage to share. Each show provides the audience with an opportunity to meet and interact with the performers.
Olympia Acoustic Music is the name we choose to describe the concerts in our private home. This is not a business or a business related activity. It is strictly a hobby for us - gatherings of friends and guests to enjoy live acoustic music, food and fun.
Because seating is limited, advanced reservations are necessary for all concerts. For more information, email olymusic_at_comcast.net (substitute @ for at)
