Northwest Folklife Festival

26 May

It’s Memorial Day Weekend here in the grand ‘ol United States.  It’s usually quiet here in Seattle and a lovely time to stay in town and enjoy…Northwest FOLKLIFE.
And, this year, unlike years in the past, the weather forecast looks…perfect!
If you’re in Seattle and looking for a FREE, fabulous and festive fun time, come on down to the Seattle Center.  
I’m so excited to be playing with my friend, the wonderfully talented singer/songwriter Reggie Garrett.
WHEN:  Sunday, May 28, 6pm
WHERE:  Fountain Lawn Stage, Northwest Folklife, Seattle Center
WHAT:  Reggie Garrett and full band (Darren Loucas, Christine Gunn, yours truly)
MORE:  FREE, family-friendly, outdoors!

If you haven’t yet heard Reggie and his beautiful melodies, velvet voice and moving songs, now is the time!

Calling all Moms and people that come from Moms!

Friends, come and be serenaded by some of Seattle’s awesome music-making Moms, including yours truly. 

The fabulous Tractor Tavern has put together a night to celebrate Moms, and we have lots of special music planned. I’ll be playing with fabulous fellow mom Julia Francis with Darren Loucas on guitar, Eric Eagle on drums, and Charles Wicklander on keys. It’s a blissfully early show and we would love to share it with you.
