A big Thank You to everyone who contributed to another successful concert season – the volunteers, including concert producers and planning committee, sound crew, our host venue The Phinney Neighborhood Center, our many wonderful performing artists, and the audiences who turn up to make it all worthwhile! The concert committee takes a break during the summer.
Our concert season will start up again on September 21st, with the acclaimed Irish button accordion player John Whelan. Other highlights of the season include Pete’s Posse from Vermont, Jim Kweskin & Meredith Axelrod, the vocal ensemble Windborne, the trio of Scandinavian fiddles of Fru Skagerrak, songwriter Johnsmith, Scottish singer Alan Reid, old-time fiddle harmony duo Spencer and Rains, dynamic fiddle & song from Hanneke Cassel, a winter-themed concert from the Balkan choruses Dunava and Dave and the Dalmations, and more! Updates on our website soon (or look for a fall season preview flier at the NW Folklife Festival)
