Concerts in the Dark The Paperboys

254

The Vashon Park District is proud to present our first ever Concert in the Dark! Join us at the Vashon Theater on Thursday, December 12th at 8:00 pm as we continue to expand our recreational programming by welcoming back one of the island’s favorite folk rock bands – the Paperboys. Just like Concerts in the Park, Concerts in the Dark is a free event. Seating will be limited so it’s first-come, first-serve. We hope to make this part of a winter series so stay tuned for news about additional VPD sponsored shows.

For a quarter century, The Paperboys have been touring the world and lighting up stages with their freewheeling blend of influences from Celtic and bluegrass, to Mexican son jarocho, brass bands, and Canadian roots. They have been called everything from Cajun slamgrass to worldbeat, they’ve received a Juno award (Canadian Grammy), plus two Juno nominations, two West Coast Music Awards, released nine albums, and regularly play two-night bills in the Pacific Northwest.

Although the Paperboys have made critically acclaimed records, they are through and through a live act. They shine most on stage. They have spent the last 25 years on the road playing all over North America and Europe, where they have developed a large following without the aid of a record labels or radio play.

The Paperboys make music that is best described by founder Tom Landa as high energy music that is like a “Guinness with a tequila chaser while listening to an Americana Jukebox.”
Providing sound for this very special concert will be Bandstand Music.

If you were there at the August 29th Concert in the Park show at the Open Space for Arts and Community, you know how wonderful that show was.  Don’t miss this one!
