The Mid-Columbia Folklore Society will feature Straw Into Gold in a "House Concert" on Feb. 2 at 7 p.m.
The concert will be held at the Old Schoolhouse at the Crest of the Hill on Hwy. 35 in Mt. Hood.
Straw Into Gold has been performing music of heart and hearth in the Pacific Northwest since 1993. Its repertoire ranges from traditional folk music about weaving to arrangements of contemporary folk songs, to choral-like spiritual music. The ensemble is known for its clear, sweet blend of precise harmonies.
The group performs both a cappella and with its own instrumental accompaniment of autoharp, fiddle, guitar, piano and hand drum.
Straw Into Gold performs in handwoven costumes against a woven backdrop inlaid with wheat.
