Every Memorial Day weekend Seattle Center becomes home to the wildly popular Northwest Folklife Festival. It is non-stop music and performances from morning to night from Friday through Monday. Admission is free, with a suggested $10 per day donation gladly accepted. Whole families go for multiple days, teens and young adults hang out with friends and enjoy all the offerings, and every roots, Americana, ethnic, string, post-punk acoustic, dance troop, bluegrass, storytelling, accordion toting band known to humans makes a trek here to play the many venues and have a great time. These performers were arriving when I caught them in a sweet spot of reflected light at last year's festival. I was out of town this year, but can't wait to hear and see some clips folks are sharing on the web.
