Some people spend their entire lifetime stricken with stage fright, but for 15-year-old pop country singer Afton Prater, the stage couldn’t be more comfortable. Afton, a sophomore at Klahowya Secondary School in Silverdale, began performing when she was 12, traveling to Kitsap, Pierce, and Jefferson County over the past three years, singing and playing guitar in a variety of venues. This August she’ll be visiting in Chelan County for two acoustic performances, one Aug. 3 at Smallwood’s Harvest market in Peshastin, and another Aug. 10 at the Wenatchee Valley Farmer’s Market in Wenatchee.

“I’ve been singing since I was little. At first it was a hobby, and then people started wanting me to perform,” she said. “It’s not like a job or anything. I love it, it’s something fun.”
