With just a few weeks left of summer, the Miners Foundry Cultural Center and As the Crow Flies presents their third of seven Summer Daze Concerts this Thursday with Lasher Keen, Wicker Men, Abduhl and the Night Visitors, Trikome and acoustic opener Jessica Agnew.

Headlining the all-ages showcase is the local psychedelic folk band Lasher Keen. Comprised by multi-instrumentalists Dylan Sheets and Bluebird Gaia with a rotating cast of musical collaborators, Lasher Keen combine music and theater that’s inspired by ritual-induced trance states yet grounded in folk traditions.

The group is known for its battery of strange instruments including the bouzouki, jaw harp, hunting horns, singing saw, glockenspiel, penny whistle, bodhran, autoharp, accordion, zils, baritone sax and shakuhachi flute along with traditional gut string harp, acoustic guitars, cello, violin, bass and hand drums.

While echoes of British folk giants like the Incredible String Band and Steeleye Span are apparent, they also draw from deeper sources such as early Celtic and Scandinavian mythology. The resulting sound is both coherent and expansive, ancient yet contemporary.

The band has toured throughout the West Coast, and its most ambitious tour took it across Europe, where they were welcomed by crowds in France, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Italy, Germany and Austria, who found the language barrier no impediment.

The event also features art, food and a no-host bar.

Upcoming shows in the series include The Devils Train, Mount Whateverest, Aequorea, Panther and Bear Fight, The Secretions, and many more.
