     History House of Greater Seattle is pleased to announce that it will once again host a free and open-to-the public summer music series in its covered, outdoor Sculpture Garden. This is our 7th season. Developed in association with Producer John Nordstrand, the program will include some of Puget Sound's best acoustic musicians. These singles, duos, trios and more along with the unpredictable and semi-spontaneous addition of friends will perform an eclectic repertoire of genres ranging from original to traditional folk to new age to maritime chanteys to logging to Celtic and Irish to international to blues to ragtime to jug to bluegrass to just plain zany.

     This is a collaborative effort. John Nordstrand has assembled for History House a wonderful mixture of over 30 musical artists who will provide entertaining, often humorous and thought provoking performances. Scheduled musicians include THE Other Band / Hounds@Bay / Silver Lining / Larry and Lynette / Down the Road / Eric Miller / Kayser-Beck Band / Burgundy Pearl / Larry Johnson / The RooTsters / Steve Beck & Friends / Matt Price / Alicia Healey / Boys of Greenwood Glen / The Killdeers / Michael Guthrie / Ray Boyce / Watch The Sky / Joe Wagner and more. They will present their work in the warm, family atmosphere of History House's covered outdoor Sculpture Garden.

     A special “Victory Music Day in the Sculpture Garden” will occur Saturday, June 18th. This concert featuring four bands presented by the Victory Music organization which will perform before (10am-noon) and after (2-4pm) the famous Fremont Solstice Parade which will pass in front of the History House Sculpture Garden.

     The History House Sculpture Garden - nestled inside a robust floral and foliage green space - includes an original 6 foot X 12 foot chunk of "The Berlin Wall", a "Fire Engine", "Willy"- a flying 15 foot model orca whale, "The Safe" - discovered beneath the Dubliner Tavern, a 12 foot "Rollin' Troll" and "The Gears" from the Fremont Bridge. All of these items and more surround the stage that is the pedestal for the Music in the Sculpture Garden music series.

These events are open-to-the-public and free of charge.

    The Music in the Sculpture Garden music series is sponsored in part by the Fremont Chamber of Commerce and the Fremont community.
