Ok, ok. We sound like a broken record, but are you aware of how much talent there is in our local music scene? This weekend’s free Folklife Festival is the perfect opportunity for you to dig into the tunes of dozens of Seattle-based artists. The Folklife Festival has taken over the Seattle Center with music, arts, dance and stories every year since 1971. They’re also a nonprofit.
This year, Team Up for Nonprofits is co-presenting the Indie Roots program at Folklife, which features a tasty sampling of artists and a super-cool MC (a musician himself).
You’ll want to be at the Fountain Lawn Stage starting at 1 pm on Saturday to check this out:
