The Olalla Community Club is located at 12970 Olalla Valley Road.

The Olalla Community Club Concerts have a stellar 2019-2020 season. What a great way to spend an evening enjoying music, food and the setting.

Starting us off September 14th will be Sweet Mary. Sweet Mary is a local band starting to get recognized as a musical force that is making a mark on the local music scene.   Musicians from right here in the South Sound. Mary Farr, Katie Crowell, Russ Salton with Billy Odden on Bass. We’re kicking off our new concert season with this great local band!

October 12 is Carl Tostin.  Modern acoustic. Singer/songwriter. Contemporary folk. Carl Tosten is a musician whose style defies easy classification. With his strong and soulful voice and an eclectic & expressive guitar technique that includes percussion, tapping, multiple open tunings and capos, Tosten has been called an “acoustic one-man band.” His introspective and thoughtful lyrics speak to us individually as well as collectively with his observations on society, the complexities of living and love. Classical and jazzy overtones elevate his original compositions to a level more sophisticated than simply “folk,” and his live performances are filled with intense energy, stories, and songs that captivate and inspire his audience.

November 9th will be featuring “Big Hands” Dan Colvin. Like Marc Cohn, Lyle Lovett and Bonnie Raitt, Big Hands Colvin’s musical style is difficult to define—a little bit blues, a little bit country, a little bit soul. Whether he’s songwriting, singing, playing sax or guitar—Big Hands is a big talent. A former frontman for the Central-Coast-of-California-based, Big Daddy’s Rhythm & Blues Band, Colvin has played with or opened for a number of well-known artists including: Tom Scott, Jesse Colin Young, and Johnny Winter.

Mark Stuart December 6th.

February 8th it’s Dan Weber.

In a few short years since his debut to a standing ovation at the Sisters Folk Festival, former National Park Ranger Dan Weber has become a sought after national touring artist for his upbeat and engaging performances, insightful songs, and hilarious off-the-cuff stories. None other than legendary Folk troubadour Ramblin’ Jack Elliott said “I love Dan’s songs and he tells really good stories.” He’s released two critically acclaimed CD’s, Ash and Bone with the instant classic ‘Hank and Jesus’, and What I’m Lookin’ For featuring ‘Oh Woody’, his tribute to Woody Guthrie that rose to #2 on the Folk music charts. And he’s toured extensively across the U.S., becoming a rare 3 time finalist in the legendary Kerrville ‘New Folk’ competition, had 2 top finishes in the Woody Guthrie songwriting contest and won the prestigious Winfield, Kansas ‘NewSong’ contest. The future looks even brighter with more great Festivals, Shows, and intimate House Concerts to come.

March 14th brings Terry and Jerry Holder.  Her award winning songs are getting Terry noticed.  Her engaging performances are opening hearts everywhere she goes.  In her live shows she has the undeniable ability to charm and connect with her listeners.  Gifted with a voice to break your heart and with a touching display of emotive vocals, she weaves her songs from the heart and soul.  This is just a spectacular display of natural talent in the songwriting genre. September 2013   Terry released her long awaited 4th Studio CD “Flowers at Midnight”.  Holder co-produced the record with Garey Shelton who was also the engineer.  The production ranges from stripped down to full on produced yet managing to keep the acoustic guitars the focal point on most of the songs. Holder says the songs on this album were inspired by real life, the things that really resonate in the heart and in the gut. On “Flowers at Midnight you will find songs about old Love letters, the tears of a child, being comfortable in your own skin, the power of paying it forward, the magic of a fortune teller, common threads that tie us together as human beings, devastating loss and enduring love.  The title track “Flowers at Midnight” is a magical dream song inspired by a friend looking for true love. “I believe in magic and the power of making your dreams come true and Flowers at Midnight is a dream come true record for me”. Holder’s passion, enthusiasm and hard work have earned her the title “Award Winning Songwriter”.  She won the 2013 “Wildflower Songwriting Competition” in Richardson Texas, is a 2013 Semi-Finalist in the International Songwriting Competition and has been selected four times as a “Kerrville New Folk Finalist” at the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival.
