Northwest Folklife Festivals Indie Roots Lineup – Sponsored by 90.3 KEXP – kexp.org

kexp-logoThe Northwest Folklife Festival‘s Indie Roots program returns for its fifth consecutive Festival, packed with live music showcases programmed in partnership with Northwest Folklife and local community curators such as Seattle Living Room Shows, Hearth Music and Underwood Stables. Indie Roots musicians integrate the traditional elements of folk and Americana music – banjos, acoustic guitars, Appalachian harmonies, or country twang – but with a more modern, pop-sensible sound. This year there are nine showcases and over 30 bands performing throughout all four days of the Festival, on four different stages including the Fountain Lawn Stage, Vera Project Stage, Folklife Café and on the new Back Porch Stage.

Indie Roots programming and showcases line-up – sponsored by our friends at 90.3 KEXP – kexp.org – for 2015 Northwest Folklife Festival includes:
