Live Music: Keelan & Randy Naasz
June 25 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Keelan (McPhee) Naasz is a songwriter and musician from Yakima, WA. Originally from Naches, Keelan began to teach herself guitar at age 12, but focused on the clarinet, performing in the Yakima Youth Symphony, at Western Washington University, and later at the University of Oregon. When Keelan moved back to Yakima in 2004, she began writing songs for the first time. Keelan has been performing her original songs ever since, performing at the Yakima Folklife Festival and various wineries and breweries in the Yakima Valley. Deeply rooted in the folk music tradition, but also with a modern sensibility of musicians like Lana del Rey and Cat Power, Keelan’s voice effortlessly reflects pain and heartache, beauty and joy. In 2018, she joined forces with her husband Randy, who is also a musician, to write and perform songs together, and play accompaniment on each other’s original songs. Keelan also sings, plays guitar and bass with her husband in the band Subtle Jabs. You can listen to some of her music at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCku8pJsPESwBNR_ZV6rZZOg .
