OLALLA — FarmStrong, a bluegrass-country style band from Sequim that’s well-known throughout the Puget Sound region, will headline entertainment at the Olalla Community Hall Jan. 14.

As always, the evening begins with an all-invited potluck at 6 p.m., with music starting at 7 p.m. Admission is by a suggested donation of $15. Proceeds are split between the musicians and the Olalla Community Club’s maintenance fund for upkeep of the 115-year-old hall.

FarmStrong draws inspiration from traditional country, blues and bluegrass, then makes forays into folk, rock, gospel and soul music, according to Nolan Pepperdine, the Mostly Monthly music series producer.

“Like fine whiskey, their sound is pure, distilled musical magic. They’re definitely not what some people consider a country band — which is basically rock-and-roll with a cowboy hat — but they’re also not a traditional bluegrass band.”

The Olalla Community Club is at 12970 Olalla Valley Rd., Olalla.
