A favorite musician returns to Fremont Abbey this weekend.

Oh happy day(s)! Langhorne Slim has come back our way. Not only is Sean Scolnick one of the most passionate musicians you might ever get the privilege of seeing onstage; he also happens to be one of the kindest souls around. Last week we enjoyed some lovely phone catch-up, and here’s what the easy-going singer-songwriter had to say.

Anyone who saw the opening act for Jack Johnson and The Avett Brothers at The Gorge this summer likely walked away with an unexpected new music crush. The Stranger has called John Craigie “…the lovechild of John Prine and Mitch Hedberg with a vagabond troubadour edge,” and any concert goer who’s experienced him live can attest to the fact that the guy is talented, charming and just plain funny. If you’re wise, you’ll catch him at The Triple Door on Tuesday, December 5 (or in other PNW locales throughout December).
