PISTOL RIVER – Sally Barris and Don Henry will perform at 8 p.m. Saturday, June 11, during a Pistol River Concert Association concert at the Pistol River Friendship Hall.

Barris, a Minnesota native, is a Nashville songwriter with a soprano voice whose music is a cross between Celtic and folk. She performs with fiddlers Stuart Duncan and Andrea Zonn; Jon Randall, who plays guitar and adds harmonies; and Byron House on bass.
