Clallam County, a group that bills itself as “Seattle’s Slowest Rising Folk Group,” gave a lively bluegrass performance at the Lake City Farmer’s Market – original songs, a sardonic Allison Kraus ballad and even a Beatles tune thrown in. Since I was standing, I didn’t want to block their audience’s view, so I stood slightly to the side, which gave me a helluva foreshortened angle on a banjo and guitars that kicked my sketchin’ butt. But on a warm and sunny afternoon – the scent of fresh tamales, bright flowers at every turn, and corn at last! – who could complain?
