This duo has been boldly blending L atino, Japanese and American musical traditions since 2006. Both accomplished musicians, Miho Takekawa and Diego Coy discovered their sounds could be combined to make something new and unique. The title of their debut CD, “Quenarimba,” combines the names of their primary instruments, the quena, a traditional Andean flute, and the marimba. July 31 — Miho & Diego. At Deception Pass State Park.
The series of eight free concerts takes place at 7 p.m. on Saturday evenings from July 10 through Aug. 28, at the park’s North Beach Amphitheater, 41020 WA-20, Oak Harbor. (Driving directions.)
The music series, now in its 15th year, resumes in person as Washington state begins to reopen for public events. Park staff request that concert goers cluster in groups of no more than 15 from two or fewer households and maintain 6 feet of distance from other groups. People who have not been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are encouraged to wear face coverings.
Thanks to generous support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Deception Pass State Park Foundation, and Island County, the concerts are free to the public, though day visitors will need a Discover Pass to park.
