Still quite glorious in its diversity and wide appeal, Folklife is surely one of the planet’s great festivals. As Baby Gramps reflected on Sunday evening, in the Newport Folk Festivals heyday, it drew a respectable crowd of 50,000 –Folklife brings out five times that many. A few snaps from my all-too brief visit yesterday evening and this afternoon.

I have lived in Seattle since 1975. Tho several aspects have changed [tho they haven’t knocked down Mike’s chili Parlor yet] your nostalgia feeling photos of the folklife festival remind me that Seattle is still a happening place. Maybe in the future, Seattle will bus in the cool people when they can no longer afford to live here.
Thank you for the photos. I missed attending this year but look forward to being there next year.
