I was at the annual Northwest Folklife Music Festival, again..
This, being my fourth time of attending this huge annual extravaganza of folk music and dancing, from all over the world. Since 1971, it’s brought a large array of arts, crafts, dancing, and sounds from multiple ethnic varieties to the Pacific Northwest, backed by donation and volunteer support. Held once again at the Seattle Center by the great Space Needle I attended Saturday and Sunday, with no energy left for the sunny Monday finale. Overall, some great times were had…
Here are some pics…
Tom Day Wait James with Dave Acker and the Growing Boys for some serious country folk jamming..
This Balkan dance group (missed their names) showed some fantastic choreography, and among my favorites for this year
More Eastern European dancing, from Saturday night.
A mighty drum circle underneath the Rhythm Tent..
A street performer (name was lost to me), with his awesome didgeridoo..
Inside one of the many booths present selling eccentric home-crafted delights. The food selection was great too.
Another shot of the good times, of which made up an overall great time for many..
That’s all for now!
