Bring the whole family to a wonderful free evening of Shakespeare performed in the outdoors. Written just after “Hamlet” was completed, “Twelfth Night” reveals a more mature Shakespeare, writing about miracles of reconciliation, of second chances and of redemption. Classic Shakespearean dramatic irony is paired with his trademark laugh-out-loud comedy plus a liberal dose of romance. Perennially popular, this play is Shakespeare at his best. Please dress warmly and bring a blanket. Chairs are provided at the San Juan venues. No tickets or reservations are needed. We are on a first-come-and-welcome-all basis.

100 Second Street, Friday Harbor

This Canadian folk trio took the Whittier stage by storm in 2012, so it seemed about time to ask them back for more of their three-part harmonies, clever songs and on-stage banter.

The aptly named Good Lovelies are best friends Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore, sharing music that is part folk-roots, part Western Swing.  Their self-titled full-length album release in 2009 not only won the group “New Emerging Artist” at the Canadian Folk Music Awards but also a Juno (Canada’s equivalent to the Grammys) for Roots/Traditional Album of the Year in 2010.
