Boise folk musician Belinda Bowler will perform an intimate house concert at the Surel’s Place artists residency in Garden City at 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 26.

Surel’s Place is a wonderfully intimate venue for music, and Bowler’s softly soothing, bell-clear voice is just perfect for that space.

Bowler is an Idaho singer and songwriter who was once a popular staple in the Northwest music scene. She stepped off the road circuit in the 1990s to teach school. Bowler recently returned to her first love of music and performing with a couple of sell-out concerts to release her “Trumpet Vine” CD, her first in more than 20 years.

Tickets are limited — only 50 are available — so you’ll have time to visit with the artist between sets.

You’ll also get to peruse Surel’s Place PopUp Shop, featuring items from the artists and artisans of the Garden City’s Live-Work-Create District, including painters Karen Woods, Geoff Krueger and Gina Phillips, glass artist Zion Warne, mosaic artist Reham Aarti and others.

The event benefits Surel’s Place, the former home of artist Surel Mitchell that now operates as an artist’s residency. Surel’s Place offers monthlong fellowships to a variety of artists who live and create in the space, and interact with the community through performances, presentations and workshops.
