‘On the Wing’ concert starts off shorebird weekend

To kick off the 21st annual Kachemak Bay Shorebird Festival, “On the Wing,” a musical celebration of birds, holds its 10th annual performance at 8 p.m. May 9 at the Homer Theatre. Organized by musician Sunrise Sjoeberg with support from the Sourdough Bakery, the evening features original bird poetry, performances by the Homer Ukulele Group, the Seaside Singers and other local musicians. Sharon Friesen-Schulz performs a debut of “Alaska is My Home” from her new “Fireweed” CD. There’s also a poetry-music collaboration with Mike and Maka Fairman and a duet of Mossy Kilcher’s “Fox Sparrow” with original bird song slides.  Sandhill crane researcher and videographer Nina Faust shows a new crane video and performs an original haiku poem.

Tickets are $10 at the door and the Homer Chamber of Commerce, with proceeds benefiting the Shorebird Conservation and Education Fund.
