I would love to get together to meet/ play with other Mudcatters in the Lesser Seattle / Eastside area. I live in Preston (I-90 Exit 22) right now, I play guitar and ocarina, intersted in all kinds of music except rap! So any takers out there?

Hello Pat ... Bob Nelson here, in Everett. The Seattle area is a real hotbed of folk music activities. For openers, google "the Pacific Northwest Folklore Society." You'll see many activities, concert listings, etc. Also, google "Seattle Folklore Society." You'll find a link to the Seattle Song Circle, which meets every Sunday night.

I'm trying to remember where Preston is ... is it east or west of the summit?   bob

Every so often Seattle Song Circle meets in Bellevue. You can get on the e-mail list by visiting the Seattle Folklore Society at seafolklore.org

Folk music is alive and well in and around the Seattle area.

To get an idea of the scope of the scene, click HERE. The opening picture is of a gathering In Bob Nelson's back yard up in Everett (north of Seattle) one Sunday afternoon a few years ago.

Then click on "Browse by Artist" above the picture and it will take you to photos and brief bios of some of the singers in and around the Seattle area (extending as far north as Bellingham and south to I'm not sure how far), and samples of their singing.

To my knowledge, there is not a heck of a lot of activity on the east side of Lake Washington, but I could be wrong about this.

Both Bob (Deckman) Nelson and I have been singing since the early 1950s, sung in coffee houses regularly, done concerts and folk festivals, all kindsa stuff, as have many of the others. Along with getting together and singing for each other just for the joy of it.

I, personally, don't get around much anymore (stuck in a wheelchair), but I still play and sing. And I'm in the process of writing a retrospective or personal viewpoint history of the folk music "scene" in the Seattle area since the 1950s.

I'm looking forward to meeting—and hearing you—sometime, if things work out.

Don Firth
