Folk artist to perform

Folk artist and songwriter Pierce Pettis will bring his music to Kauai in two shows this weekend.

Pettis was a staff songwriter for PolyGram from 1993-2000 and soon signed to Compass Records where he has released “Making Light of It,” (1996), “Everything Matters,” (1998), “State of Grace,” (2001), and “Great Big World” (2004).

“The biggest change,” he says of this point in his career “has been getting over myself and realizing this is a job and a craft. And the purpose is not fame and fortune but simply doing good work.”

His songs have been recorded by artists including Susan Ashton, Dar Williams, Garth Brooks and Art Garfunkel.

Pierce will be performing at a coffee house setting at 7:30 tonight at Kauai Christian Fellowship North, 4000 Kilauea Road in Kilauea and on Sunday at Kauai Christian Fellowship South, 2731 Ala Kinoiki, Koloa. Admission is $10.
