Chancel Arts, a community arts and cultural program in downtown Kent hosted at Kent Lutheran Church, and the Kent Grand Organ project, welcome The Debutones at 3 p.m. Saturday, June 9.

The Debutones play a tasteful, eclectic blend of country, folk and bluegrass music, featuring tight harmony singing and stellar instrumental accompaniment.

Debby Nagusky and Don Share had been singing duets for more than two decades when three of the Pacific Northwest’s finest musicians joined them, and they became the Debutones. Their repertoire took on an entirely new feel, with these three’s musical ideas and instrumental and vocal virtuosity giving the songs new life, depth, and intensity.

Adding to Debby and Don’s vocals and guitar work are Greg Glassman, vocals and bass; Julian Smedley, vocals, violin, and viola; and Bob Knetzger, Dobro and banjo.

The group’s first CD, Please Come Home, landed at No. 21 and then 40, on the “Top Album” and “Top Artist” lists on the U.S. FOLKDJ-L charts in February and March 2016.

Tickets are available at the door starting at $5 for students and children under 12, $10 for seniors and $12.50 general admission. Find out more at chancelarts.com or on Brown Paper Tickets.

All proceeds support the Kent Grand Organ construction, and will enable Chancel Arts to continue to offer musical performances.
