Caitlin Jemma

Caitlin Jemma took ears and feet by storm at last year's Stringband Jamboree and Sh'Bang! We're happy to welcome her to Honey Moon for this intimate concert.

Raised in the high desert of Northern Nevada, Caitlin's songwriting is influenced by a sense of adventure, reverie, and discovery. With a sound that is tempered by country and delivered with soul, she brings a wholesome and enlivened energy to storytelling folk. Through the many winding roads with nothing left to lose, Caitlin Jemma’s songwriting reflects on what it means to is be brave and keep it moving…while serving love, straight up. Her songs are love notes which offer hope, uplift, and encourage you to be your baddest self and pursue magic.

Free and all ages welcome as always! Please tip your band and bartendar.

McKesson and McDonald

McKesson and McDonald

A special Sunday show!

Ryan McKasson and Eric McDonald are masters of tradition who purposefully explore the dark corners floating on its edges. Their individual artistry is enhanced when together. In short, the sum creates a greater whole. The result is an alluring complexity, full of spontaneous musicality. Pulling from parallel strands of influence, they create a swirling level of intensity that traverses darkness, light, and everywhere in between. An air of mystery pervades a sound compelling enough to transcend boundaries and appeal to music lovers of all stripes. Devon Leger of Hearth Music says, “This duo really shows how two masterful musicians listen and play off each other." The music this duo creates is to share, and live performance is the forte. Their mutual attitude stretches beyond the music. The two have been good friends ever since they met, and this is present in their live performances, which are full of organic banter and good humor to go along with the music. They create an environment of their own design, drawing in listeners without pretense. Despite both living active musical lives thousands of miles apart these two musicians have committed to working together to forge a new musical path.

All ages.  Admission $15. Presale tickets recommended. 

For tickets, contact Caley at bellinghamfolkfestival@gmail.com  Please note presale tickets are not availble through Honey Moon.

Gather Round - True Stories Told Live

Join Bellingham's monthly forum for people who love a good story. 

If you haven't been with us before, here's the scoop: Gather Round is inspired by The Moth, the New York based non-profit dedicated to "true stories told live." We believe that nothing binds a community together like shared stories. Our format is Open Mic: prospective tellers prepare a story based on the evening’s theme and submit their names before the show starts. Our rules are simple: 

1. Stories must be true and personal, that is, they must relate something that actually happened, and that directly affected the teller. 
2. Stories must be told, not read -- they must be performed without notes.
3. Stories last approximately 5-8 minutes. 

We're committed to creating a safe and supportive environment for all sorts of stories to be shared. Funny stories, sad stories, stories about small triumphs or epic defeats; stories about friends, about families, about the search for love or justice; stories about the human condition and how we cope with it on any given day. Come tell us a story, or just sit back and listen as others share theirs.

One more thing: our space is small and seating is limited -- come early to get a good spot!

Honeydrippers Storytelling & Music with Harper Stone and Meg Yates

Honeydripper's Tales Presents Words with Wings - Songs & Stories by Meghan Yates and Harper Stone

 

There were once 12 brothers who were swans in the daytime and humans at night. There was a time when seals spoke like people, and invited a fisherman into their home. There was a box that should never have been opened…

 

On this long dark winter night we introverted musical artist types will come out of our hibernation for an intimate evening of word-woven wonder. Come sip some mead and let yourself be carried to another world on a ship made of sound.
