Centrum & Folklife: A Match Made in Heaven

This year, Northwest Folklife is thrilled to be partnering with Centrum to bring you blues workshops at the Folklife Festival this year!  Centrum is an arts organization located on Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend, Washington that is a gathering place for artists and creative thinkers from around the world, students of all ages and backgrounds, and audiences seeking extraordinary cultural enrichment.  For decades, Northwest Folklife and Centrum have worked with overlapping communities and served many of the same constituents through our programs. We’re very excited to be working together and bringing some of the magic of Centrum workshops to add to the magic of Folklife!

At the 2014 Northwest Folklife Festival, Centrum will be presenting a series of blues workshops in which musicians of all levels can come and learn from masters of acoustic blues.  The workshops this year will be: Lap Style Dobro with Orville Johnson, Piedmont Blues Guitar with Eric Freeman, and Blues Improvisation for Violin with Jon Parry.
