Kat Bula, a longtime Bellingham fiddler who recently moved to Seattle but still books events for Honey Moon Mead & Cider, 1053 N. State St., is thrilled about the venue’s first ticketed event, Edwin Huizinga and William Coulter, who call themselves Liquid Gold and are now on their Fire and Grace Tour, performing at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, April 23. They connect elements of classical, folk, and contemporary music from around the world, playing everything from a prelude by Bach to an Irish reel, from a tango by Piazzolla to a Spanish love song, from “Winter” by Vivaldi to a Balkan dance tune. Tickets: $10 to $15 at the door.
Texas balladeer coming to Green Frog
Guitarist and singer Gurf Morlix, who came up with that stage name while still a young dude, performs from his eighth album, 2015’s “Eatin’ At Me,” at 8 p.m. Sunday, April 24, at The Green Frog, 1015 N. State St. His tunes come from a man who looks at life and the world around him with all its grit and glory. His songs tell tales of love and regret, happy memories and heartbreak, the kinds of things that stay with a person, eating away at them, if allowed. Ron Hardesty, father of the Frog’s owner, James, opens. Tickets: $20 advance through Brown Paper Tickets; $25 day of show.

Ian McFeron, Alisa Milner on Lummi Island
Seattle guitarist and singer Ian McFeron‘s music maintains stout-hearted positivity while exploring themes of troubled times, hard traveling, and a thin pocketbook. McFeron is joined on his current tour by longtime friend and musical accompanist Alisa Milner on fiddle, cello, and harmony vocals, at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 22, at Beach Store Cafe, 2200 N. Nugent Road, Lummi Island. No cover; donations appreciated.
March Fourth Marching Band at Buffalo again
Aside from their marching band-theme costumes and their multi-member drum and brass corp, March Fourth Marching Band is far from a “marching band” in any traditional sense (though the group of about 20 has been known to parade through festival crowds at Bellingham’s Downtown Sounds before taking the stage). Their show Saturday, April 23, at The Wild Buffalo journeys from the swamps of Louisiana to the gypsy camps of Eastern Europe and through the deepest grooves of American funk, rock, and jazz, then boils it together in cinematic fashion with high-stepping stilt-acrobatics and dazzling dancers. Doors open 8 p.m. Yogoman opens. $15.
