Contemporary folk duo Maureen Andary and Sara Curtin, a.k.a. The Sweater Set, first met as teens in a Washington, D.C. church choir. In the years since, the pair has taken their vocal training and friendship on the road, developing multi-instrument arrangements that include the ukulele, banjo, glockenspiel, and even the kazoo, layered with “elaborate lyrical gossip.” Their signature sound has earned them a Washington Area Music Award for Best Contemporary Folk Group, and made fans of Dar Williams and concert-goers across the globe.

Friday 6/28  Free, 8pm. The Blue Moon Diner, 512 W. Main St. 980-6666.
