Blues singer Julia Scott is making her return to the Haines music scene April 26 to perform with the PBRs at the Southeast Alaska State Fair’s Spring Fling.
Perhaps the valley’s premiere vocal performer, Scott recently has been honing her craft in Seattle, following tutelage by professional musicians, including Livingston Taylor
Fair director Ross Silkman said the fling is the fair’s way of capping off its annual member drive. Though they accept memberships year-round, Silkman said the fling is the celebration following a three-week push to remind residents that the fair is a membership-driven organization that needs support.
The event, which begins at 5:30 p.m., will include a barbecue dinner and alcohol will be available for purchase, Silkman said.
Scott will also be performing at the fair this summer, but the fling is her reintroduction to the community after a winter’s absence. “It’s kind of Julia’s return to Haines after being gone, so we are excited for that,” Silkman said.
A one-year membership is $75, which includes a four-day pass to the fair in July. Fling tickets are $10 for non-members.
