The event raised vital funds for Climate Solutions, an organization working to accelerate practical and profitable solutions to global warming. Proceeds from the concert support Climate Solutions’ efforts to power past coal – specifically, stopping coal export off the West Coast.
Both artists have chosen to be involved with this event because they are enthusiastic about the work Climate Solutions is doing and the impact it will have for Washington’s communities.
Show headliner Kris Orlowski produces a blend of acoustic folk-rock and indie-pop songs filled with melodies that encompass all moods, from wistful to happy to love, and that captivate his audience with thoughtful lyrics and catchy hooks.
Opening for Kris is Dawn Mitschele, best known for her smooth acoustic style. Mitschele is rising out of the Southern California music scene, drawing a wide range of fans across the U.S. and Europe. Her full length album, “In the Moonlight,” continues to receive much attention, and has helped to land her opening spots for artists like Meiko, Edwin McCain and Donavon Frankenreiter.
If you’re curious about the true impact of global warming on our precious environment or the destruction that coal exportation is causing, Climate Solutions has provided additional background at climatesolutions.org and powerpastcoal.org.
