NEHALEM — The North County Recreation District in Nehalem welcomes two musical singing duos for a night of original songs at 7 p.m. Friday, May 25, at the Performing Arts Center, 36155 9th St. The cover is $10 at the door.

Trevor & Sylvie, a husband and wife duo from Nashville, are the musical descendants of luminary songwriters like Patty Griffin and James Taylor, combined with the vocal harmonies of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings. The songs they write and perform are a perfect marriage of story and melody.

Loving, silly, honest and authentic, the band invites listeners in as friends and offers all the love and laughter of home. Listen to them perform songs from their debut release, “Time Is Free.”

The Matty Charles & Katie Rose sound is deeply rooted in the dirt and haunted places of the American country-folk tradition. Something magical culminates in the ether of their combined voices, in the melancholy moodiness of a waltz for a lost dream, in the pealing wail of a drunken Saturday night dance stomp.

Their debut album, “Catching Arrows,” has been called, “a sublime listening experience” and a “must-have album” (bealestreet.be) as well as “the kind of album that can break out and surprise even the most jaded music critics” (kithfolk.com). Catch them live and hear how Charles and Rose “prove that they may be among the best duos in the genre” (Lambert Smits, keysandchords.com).

Don’t miss this opportunity to catch both acts performing their songs at the North County Recreation District!
