I Am Vashon

Vashon is an island characterized by its natural beauty and uniquely rich arts scene. Running through its verdant forests, bucolic pastures and majestic vistas is a spirit that inspires musicians to call this place their home.

One guitar tells the stories of some of our Island’s most talented musicians, challenging them to create an original song in one week. Each week, this one guitar is passed to the next musician, creating a lineage that connects each musician and each song. We all have different stories to tell, but music brings us together.

Bob Krinsky, longtime Islander and founder of Vashon Guitar Company, generously donated a custom designed acoustic guitar to the inaugural I Am Vashon project.

Leading up to the concert, each musician spends one week with this guitar writing an original song and imbuing it with their creative energy. At each week’s end the musician signs the guitar and passes it along to the next songwriter.  This guitar will eventually have a permanent home on display in the new Vashon Center for the Arts.

The project culminates with a special performance of live music on Saturday, February 21, 7:30 pm at Vashon High School Theater. Tickets are available for purchase online, or at Vashon Allied Arts (463-5131) and Heron’s Nest.  Tickets click here.
