Welcome

Corona Virus / COVID-19:

The Emerald City Contra dance is cancelled until at least mid-April,  and will update status of future dances on Seattledance.org

The Seattle Song Circle is meeting via Zoom Conferencing, at this link: https://zoom.us/j/358495231 .  This applies to and including April 29th.  Please mute – synchronization is elusive via conferencing https://zoom.us/j/358495231

The remaining March and April and the May 2nd  SFS concerts have been cancelled or postponed. Two May concerts are still planned as of this posting (Matthew Byrne is not able to come on May 16th, but another concert may be scheduled on this date if it is possible). Check the Concert Schedule for the latest updates.
Ticket buyers for cancelled concerts can receive refunds or credit to a future concert of your choice. You may also choose to have your ticket donated to the performers. Please continue to check our website for updates on concerts and other events.

For shows we decide to go forward: We urge that if you are sick or have reason to suspect you’ve been in close contact with someone who is ill or suspected of being ill with COVID19,  if you are in one of the high risk groups, or if you feel uneasy about congregating in public and endangering yourself, please stay home. 
If you’ve paid for a show in advance and are staying home, we’ll offer you a ticket to a future show at no charge — email us at concerts@seafolklore.org or leave a message at (206) 923-8923. If we go forward with a show, we will attempt to create livestreams that you can watch and enjoy the performance at home — please consider making a donation to the artists through the donate link.

You may find the  donate button on our website home page.  If you would like to donate to help compensate musicians who lose income from cancelled SFS events, click the”Donate” button and select “Concert” or “Emerald City Contra Dance”. You may leave then leave a note to direct it to a specific performer or band. Alternatively proceeds will be divided up between dance bands whose date was cancelled or concert performers who did not receive adequate compensation.
