The “barn bash” will support Little Star’s child-care programs.

Little Star Montessori School will host a “barn bash” fundraiser at the Winthrop Barn on Saturday (April 14) from 3 – 6 p.m. Featured live performers will be Luc and the Lovingtons and St. Claire.

Food and locally produced beverages will be available. There will be a presentation about the school’s fundraising effort to support its schools in Winthrop and Twisp.

Luc Reynaud, who formed Luc and the Lovingtons, and John Sinclair, who performs as St. Claire, are both Methow Valley natives and Liberty Bell High School graduates.

Sinclair has toured with the hip-hop artist Macklemore and appeared with him on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” Luc and the Lovingtons have produced a couple of CDs and have performed extensively around the world, including a tour with Jason Mraz.

Admission is by donation. For information, call 996-2801.
