ABOUT JASON WEBLEY

Accordion troubadour, Jason Webley began his music career in 1998 howling on street corners in Seattle’s University District and the Folk Life and Bumbershoot music festivals. He quickly developed a loyal cult following and became known for his compelling stage presence, whimsical stories and interactive stage productions.

Through the early 2000’s he enacted a cycle of ritually killing off his stage persona every Halloween and being reborn in the spring with new songs and themes. During this time, he committed to an unrelenting touring schedule. Armed with his squeezebox, beat-up parlor guitar, and porkpie hat, Webley has performed in over forty countries. He’s shared the stage with the Avett Brothers, the Dresden Dolls, author Neil Gaiman, and has worked extensively with friends such as composer/bassist Jherek Bischoff and Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band.

Webley has released five albums on his own Eleven Records label, as well as numerous collaborations, including the 2010 album “Evelyn Evelyn” with Dresden Dolls singer, Amanda Palmer. In recent years, Webley has kept a lower profile, but new listeners continue to discover his music through his involvement with the Welcome to Night Vale podcast, and his continued work with Amanda Palmer.

His most recent projects have focused on the local history of Webley’s hometown of Everett, Washington. With his 2014 release, “Margaret”, Webley brought together a cast of songwriters to tell the unlikely and magical story of Margaret Rucker, the daughter of one of Everett’s founders, whose scrapbook was found in a San Francisco dumpster.

Following a sold-out night at the Showbox with Amanda Palmer in April, this special night at the Fremont Abbey will be Jason’s first headlining concert in Seattle in over a year.

ABOUT HANNAH MAYREE

Hannah Mayree is a Sacramento, CA born singer, songwriter and music educator. Composed while criss-crossing America communing with people and plants, her songs incorporate African rhythms and diverse European and American folk traditions to express the profound mystery contained within all beings.

Raised by a violist mother and journalist father in a mixed race family, her music connects urban and rural ways of life and invites the listener to reconsider the boundaries between the masculine and feminine, the world of matter and the world of spirit.

Appalachian banjo, guitar, flute, accordion, and mandolin cradle inspired vocal harmonies in her freshman release “Thoughts of the Night” on enigma label homhomhom.
