A self-described “folkestra” — cello, viola, trumpet, accordion, clarinet, piano, guitar and percussion — is set to pay Fruita a visit in the form of the Seattle group, Hey Marseilles.

The six-member pop ensemble from Seattle is touring in support of its second album and will perform at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 11, at The Hot Tomato Cafe, 124 N. Mulberry St., in Fruita.

The sophomoric album, “Lines We Trace,” was released earlier this year. It was written and recorded in a newly renovated house in the neighborhood of Columbia City, as well as nearby in a tunnel in Seattle’s Golden Gardens Park, a mostly abandoned brick office building and a church sanctuary, the group’s Facebook page says. Each location was chosen because of its acoustic qualities.

“‘Lines We Trace’ is not about going out and searching. It’s about finding you’re already where you need to be,” the group’s Facebook page bio says.

The album’s 12 songs “articulate a sense of longing, but it’s a longing to appreciate what’s in front of you as opposed to finding meaning in somewhere or someone else,” said Matt Bishops, singer and guitarist. “It’s about finding and creating home where you’re at and as you are.”

Hey Marseille’s first album is titled “To Travels and Trunks” and was released in 2010.

Go to or the group’s Facebook page to listen to tracks from both albums and to learn more about the band. Call at 858-1117 for information on the Hot Tomato Cafe show.
