Enjoy a full day and evening of string bands, indie-roots, blues, and gospel music as well as the opportunity to hear from artists in a cozy and intimate setting. Guests are invited to join in for square dancing featuring The Onlies and caller Gabe Strand; performances in the main venue feature The Sojourners, Jason Dodson & Kevin Barrans of The Maldives, Ravenna Woods, and The Shivas.
The Northwest Fiddle Showcase will highlight a varied line-up of some of the best fiddlers in the Northwest including Northwest Folklife founders Phil & Vivian Williams, as well as Ben Hunter (of Renegade Stringband), Karen England & Jim Newberry, The Onlies, and Paul Anastasio.
Special acoustic performances in the Vera Gallery include Baby Gramps, VIKESH KAPOOR, Juliana & PAVA, Les Pamplemousses, and Orville Johnson.
Folklife will also have an outdoor Fireside Tent: a heated and fire lit space, complete with comfy couches, for music and conversation with the artists.
