LONG BEACH, WASH. — Folk-oriented singer-songwriter Marian DiCicco brings her unique sound to the Peninsula Arts Center, 504 Pacific Ave. N. in Long Beach at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 7 (doors open at 6:30 p.m.). Tickets are $15 at the door or through Brown Paper Tickets.
DiCicco picked up a guitar age 5 and couldn’t put it down. Music was her self-taught coping mechanism to being raised in a troubled home. Music is how she connects with people and stays connected to herself; exposing and sharing her innermost joys and aches, sometimes flawed, but always authentic and genuine.
Influenced by the likes of Emmy Lou Harris, Bob Wills, Christy Moore and Mary Black, DiCicco prefers to think of each song as a story, with pictures drawn through notes and lyrics. With a healthy mix of original compositions and cover renditions, her sounds range from bluesy folk and old-school country to lively or haunting Irish.

Wine, beer and other refreshments are available for purchase.
Concerts benefit the Long Beach Peninsula Acoustic Music Foundation, a nonprofit charitable organization.
