Scenes from a Concert in Tok

Finally got a chance to post about the concert we hosted in Tok on November 19. We were so happy to host both Marian Call and her guitar player Bryan Ray fresh off Marian’s seven month tour of the Lower 48 as well as Britt Arnesen aka 907Britt and her son who trekked over from the Fairbanks area.

The evening kicked off with a kid singalong and playalong with Britt.

Followed by a lovely set by Britt.

Then Marian and Bryan took the “stage.”

A few stylized photos…

Everyone came up to me afterward to say how incredibly impressed they were by the performers and how pleased they were to have them come through our community.

We hope to host or help with more concerts so stay tuned to this blog for news about other concerts in town courtesy of Duct Tape Radio and Acoustic Accents host and producer Bud Johnson.

We’ll keep you updated here!
