Indie Folk: Sounds from the Northwest Concert
Join the museum for a free outdoor concert on Friday, April 29 from 4:00-7:00 p.m., featuring Portland musician Brian Mumford (Dragging an Ox Through Water), from our Indie Folk playlist. The concert also showcases Whiting Tennis, a Seattle-based artist and musician, and one of the 17 artists in the Indie Folk: New Art & Sounds from the Pacific Northwest exhibition. Pullman’s own Raza NorthWest, featuring WSU faculty Darryl Singleton and Alan Malfavon, will open the concert by playing son jarocho, a style of folk music indigenous to the Veracruz region of Mexico, reinforcing the Mexican-American influences heard on our playlist.
Live performances at the museum this month are an offshoot of the exhibition Indie Folk: New Art and Sounds from the Pacific Northwest, which features a playlist by Eric Isaacson of Mississippi Records. According to Isaacson, “the music genre Northwest Indie Folk could mean a lot of different things to different people. Our region is home to many cultures that have adapted their traditional folk music to the modern world: The term “Indie Folk” would apply to them all.”
Concerts are produced in collaboration with the WSU Student Entertainment Board.
LOCATION | The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU is located in the Crimson Cube (on Wilson Road across from Martin Stadium and the CUB) on the WSU Pullman campus. For more information please visit museum.wsu.edu/about.
