New Indie Roots: Seattle Living Room Shows

Folklife is ecstatic to have the Seattle Living Room Shows community joining our Indie Roots Program for the 2014 Festival.

Conceived by sisters Carrie and Kristen Watt, Seattle Living Room Shows has built a strong community and fan base by creating an intimate, one-of-a-kind experience for both audiences and artists alike — in local homes and living rooms spaces. The sisters have booked both touring acts and top-end local talent, including past Folklife performers such as Bryan John Appleby and Ivan and Alyosha. “It’s just a way to bring music into the community without having our own actual space,” says Carrie Watt.

“We are so honored to have been asked to be involve with Folklife this year! When we were approached about it, it was an easy YES for us. One of our biggest focuses is a community built around a common passion for music! Since Folklife’s main focus is also on community and the arts, it was just a perfect fit. Even though our showcase will not take place in a living room setting, people will still get to feel what it’s like to be at one of shows.We are always on the look out for new up and coming musicians in Seattle and around the United States.  So you can expect an amazing showcase with some the Northwest’s best artists!”- Kristen & Carrie Watt (Seattle Living Room Shows)
