The Northwest Folklife Festival is coordinating a series of short films called Northwest Stories about the many different cultural communities in the Northwest that are interwoven into the annual Northwest Folklife Festival (held every Memorial Day weekend at the Seattle Center). This episode, entitled Northwest Music & Arts, explores the underground music scene in Olympia and Seattle and it’s propensity to organize events accessible to audience members of all ages.
