Northwest Fiddle Showcase
Winter Fireside Party, Vera Project – Seattle Center Grounds, 4pm
One of the highlights of Northwest Folklife’s Winter Fireside Party will be a Northwest Fiddle Showcase, an excited and fast-paced show of both up-and-coming new fiddlers and some pillars of Northwest Fiddle traditions. The show will feature fiddlers of various different styles including Bluegrass, Mexican music of the Tierra Caliente, Cajun twin fiddling and more. We’ll be featuring some of the hottest young fiddlers in the Seattle scene such as The Onlies, a band of teenage traditional music superstars, as well as some of the most celebrated and experienced tradition bearers, such as Vivian and Phil Williams, who have been documenting and performing Northwest fiddle music since the 1950s. Paul Anastasio, Karen England and Jim Newberry, and Ben Hunter (of Renegade Stringband) will also perform to create this cross-generational fiddle extravaganza. Please join us on January 25, 2014 at the Vera Project on the Seattle Center grounds for the Winter Fireside Party starting at 2pm with the Fiddle Showcase at 4pm.
