One of Seattle’s favorite country music darlings, Zoe Muth, will return to rock Bainbridge Island with her renowned classic country tunes at the Treehouse Cafe at 8 p.m. Wednesday, April 30.
Muth, who now resides in Austin, Texas, expressed the excitement she and the band about felt about returning to their old stomping grounds earlier this week.
“We’re really looking forward to it,” she said. “In Bainbridge we have a lot of repeat people who come back to see us [and] the audience is so close, they’re right there. The sound is always really good there. We’re really looking forward to being back in the Northwest and seeing everybody again.”
The Bainbridge concert is to be the first of several regional concerts in promotion of Muth’s third album, “World of Strangers,” to be released next month.
“Many of these songs have been in my head for a long time and I needed a change of scenery and sound to let them find their way out,” Muth said of her ten latest tracks. “This was a whole new studio experience for me, more experimental.”
Treehouse owner and concert organizer Arnie Sturham said that Muth had built up quite a loyal fan-base on the island and that approximately two-thirds of the available tickets for Wednesday’s show had already been sold as of earlier this week.
“She’s the genuine article,” he said.
Tickets are $15 each and be purchased at www.treehousebainbridge.com.
