On Friday, Taps at the Guardhouse in Fort Worden hosts a solo performance by Micaela Kingslight. The first Friday Night Live event in the new year features Kingslight’s expressive vocals, elegant guitar work, and poetic lyricism.
After years of leading bands in her home state of Michigan, Kingslight relocated to Port Townsend in 2015. She now performs with her own original music trio and regional groups, including local favorite Strong Sun Moon. Kingslight writes songs and her performances come in many formats, acoustic or electric, heartwarming folk presentations with guitar and voice, as well as ‘groovy, bluesy, indie-soul-rock’ driven by a full ensemble.
Her catalog of songs is both varied and extensive after years as a songwriter, solo performer, bandleader, band member, and teacher. Micaela teaches at Crossroads Music, Port Townsend’s music store, where she offers instruction in guitar, bass, ukulele, Celtic harp, and mandolin.
