Tuning the Air founders bring strings back in Fremont
Guitarists from Seattle's disbanded Tuning the Air will appear June 30 at a free open house for all ages, celebrating the opening of Ballard's new Seattle Creative Arts Center.
SEATTLE CREATIVE ARTS CENTER
For anyone with fond memories of Tuning the Air — the weekly Fremont concert series that put audiences smack in the center of the music, with a dozen or so guitarists performing on their periphery — here's some good news. Tuning the Air founding members Chris and Meleah Gibson have opened a new venue in Ballard, the Seattle Creative Arts Center, and they're having a free open house on Saturday with a number of Tuning the Air-connected musicians performing live. The lineup includes Definitely String Quartet (playing guitar transcriptions of works by Beethoven, Corelli, Ives and others), Third Law (described as a "screaming fusion and funk band") and Birds May Bite (songwriter Scott Adams' folky outfit). All ages are welcome. 4 p.m.-10 p.m. Saturday, Seattle Creative Arts Center, 2601 N.W. Market St., Seattle; free (206-297-6001 or www.seattlecreativearts.com).
