The historic Marys River Grange Hall will come alive with music Sunday evening with a show that includes Gabrielle Louise, Darryl Purpose and True North Duo.

The concert begins at 7 p.m. Sept. 17 and tickets are $15 at the door. The doors open at 6:30 p.m.

This will be the second stop in Philomath for Louise, a singer and songwriter from Colorado who performed at the hall in June 2021. She has a style described as “anchored deeply in folk and Americana, but undeniably drawn to rich harmonies and melodic adventurism” and as a “modern-day troubadour noted for her poignant lyrics and lush voice.”

Purpose is described on his website as a master of the narrative folk tradition with “a reputation as a top-shelf songwriter and performer with a keen eye for detail and an uncanny knack for subtle twists that engage his listeners through his unusual, beautiful melodies and personal stories.”

True North Duo features singer-songwriter Kristen Grainger and multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Dan Wetzel. The Salem couple performs contemporary folk and bluegrass and has developed a strong regional following.

Marys River Grange Hall is located at 24707 Grange Hall Road in Philomath.
