The Northwest Folklife Festival in Seattle, WA is the largest community arts festival in the nation, welcoming 250,000 people to the Seattle Center each Memorial Day weekend and presenting more than 800 performers from across the Pacific Northwest. Live From the 2008 Northwest Folklife Festival features recordings from some of the stellar performances you can experience each year at the festival. Artists featured here range from the old-time bluegrass sounds of Noparta' Nothin' and Jangle Bones to Eygptian oud master Maurice Rouman, from the a capella singing of A Moment In Time and Olympia's Polka Dot Dot Dot to the vitriolic punk sounds of jug band Blackbird Raum. Local area legends abound, with a moving song from Seattle singer songwriter Jim Hinde, a traditional Latin American song from Correo Aereo, and Olympia's K Records founder Calvin Johnson. Fiddle and accordion duo Jeremiah McLane and Ruthie Dornfeld play a traditional song from Central France while Mako & Munjuru represent the sounds of Okinawa and Peter Ali plays his hypnotic Native American flute. You can listen as the next generation of traditional musicians takes up the mantle, with stellar artists like Water Tower String Band, button accordionist Johnny B. Connolly and local singer songwriter Jerin Falkner.
