The Pacific Northwest Folklore Society and the Everett Public Library are teaming up again to present family concerts of traditional folk music.

The concerts start at 2 p.m. Sundays at the main auditorium. The next concert is April 22 at the Everett Public Library, 2702 Hoyt Ave., Everett.

The concerts are all free.

Here’s the line-up:

April 22: Sara Comer recently became a Certified Champion Old Time Fiddler when she took first at the Washington State Fiddlers Contest in the Young Adult division. She won that division by playing the old-time dance music she grew up with and still continues to spin the stories and play the music of American fiddle music.

May 20: Squirrel Butter combines guitar and banjo to present Appalachian, jug band and fiddle music along with some clog dancing for a complete family treat. To hear some Squirrel Butter songs go to www.myspace.com/squirrelbutter.
