Mark your calendars: the East Grace Street House Concert Series returns again this summer starting in July.

From co-host Jennifer Elsner:

The East Grace Street House Concert Series offers all our musicians an opportunity to explore, push their edges or just do their already fab thing.

Our home is most alive when filled with friends and friends-to-be. That’s where the idea for East Grace Street was born. Hosting intimate concerts sets the stage for spectacular, independent musicians to bring their talents to our friends and friends-of-friends. This is exactly how we want to spend our summer evenings, and welcome you to join us.

And this isn’t a profit center for us — all ticket sales go directly to the performers. 100%. The desired effect is that it just feels goods for everyone involved.

A band of family and friends, Father Sunflower & The Golden Rays is the experimental psych-folk trio of Christian Brady, Stephanie Brady and Sara Gossett. This show will fill our backyard, and our minds, with some buzzing, humming psych sounds featuring ethereal vocals and some killer organ vibes. Flute, harmonium and manipulating found sounds & samples also converge. in what’s destined to be a transcendental evening — under the stars.

Vintage-inspired Turkish Pop, Yeni Nostalji began as a passionate romance between singer & songwriter Christina Marie and the soundscape of 1960’s Turkish radio. In 2014, Christina Marie joined forces with Turkish-American guitarist Evrim Dogu, setting out to write original material inspired by their predecessors of Turkish pop, and reinterpret classic ‘Nostalji’ music from the 1960’s-1980’s. Listeners have described the sound as wistful, haunting, hip, exotic, and playful.

With instrumentals driven by acoustic guitar, piano, and mandolin, Fredericksburg’s Wylder instills clever violin lines and lush harmonies that resonate behind clear and memorable melodies. Embracing the best elements of both indie-pop and folk, Will McCarry (vocals/guitar), Russell Michelson (piano/vocals), Lavar Edmonds (strings), and Lonnie Southall (guitar/mandolin) produce a tapestry in which every hook and melody is interdependent.
