The Pacific Northwest has been a hotspot for rising stars in the acoustic folk genre, but what of the rest of the coast? Team Up for Nonprofits is pleased to welcome a fresh voice from Southern California to Seattle. Her name is Dawn Mitschele, and like the first morning light, her golden voice and sun-kissed locks radiate warmth. It’s no wonder she’s received accolades in her San Diego community including a San Diego HAT Award for Best New Acoustic Artist in 2007. She’s even caught the eye of some celebrity musicians, having been featured in a Bushwalla song and performed live with Jason Mraz.
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.
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.
