The Rural Characters Set for WICA's Local Artist Series Benefit Concert This Weekend
Whidbey Island Center for the Arts presents two concert dates for the annual Local Artist Series benefit concert featuring local comedy country music group The Rural Characters. Performances are tonight, May 16 and Saturday, May 17 at 7:30pm on the Michael Nutt Mainstage.
"Enjoy your Island Time! Wildly popular local band the Rural Characters prove there's nothing better..." - Whidbey Magic (Sue Averett and Erick Westphal)
Attendees can sit back, enjoy the show, and pat themselves on the back for showing true community collaboration in helping to support Whidbey Island artists.
Proceeds from these two concerts fund WICA's 2015 Local Artist Series, covering rental fees for four local artist groups to perform at WICA and allowing them to keep the money made from tickets sales. Each year a community committee juries applications and winners are announced on stage at the benefit concerts.
Tickets are $25 and are available at www.wicaonline.org, in person at the box office, open Wednesday through Saturday 1-6 p.m. and two hours before show time, or by calling. Call 800-638-7631 or 360-221-8268. WICA is located at 565 Camano Avenue in Langley on Whidbey Island.
