Tickets still available for all Fall concerts! (Bill Staines on Oct 21 expected to have limited tickets at the door)

We have lately had a flurry of panicked calls about a few of the most popular performers in our concert series, worrying about ticket availability.  Here is some reassurance that,  at least as of today, advance tickets are still available  for all Fall concerts. There are a few that might sell out by the day of the show (and you save a little by buying advance tickets), so we recommend buying advance tickets through Brown Paper Tickets or at prior SFS concerts. (We are no longer able to take reservations without an advance ticket sale. If you prefer to buy tickets by phone, you may also call the Brown Paper Tickets line at 1-800-838-3006) To find out if tickets will be available at the door, check our webpage listing or the concert line 206-923-8923. These will be updated on the day of the show.  Tickets at the door may be paid for by cash or check only.  Hope to see you at some of the wonderful and varied Fall concerts!
