Live Sunday: Rachel Harrington and her Twang

Since Zoe Muth moved to Austin, Seattle can now boast Rachel Harrington as our twangiest country singer. She recently returned from a 32-date stop across the Atlantic, where American bluegrass, roots, and country music— along with Seattle artists like Muth and Cahalen Morrison and Eli West—have become increasingly popular.

On her fourth album, Makin’ Our House a Honky Tonk, you can see why: Superbly penned originals from the fiery eponymous anthem to country tunes with vintage flair like the Loretta Lynn–esque “Wedding Ring Vacation” hearken back to a time when the genre was unfiltered and full of innuendo and female vocalists belted out clean, confident notes like the pop divas of today. With Rebecca Pronsky. Empty Sea Studios, 6300 Phinney Ave. N., 228-2483. 7 p.m. $15 adv./$18 DOS.
