- A John Nordstrand Production -

     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 5th season. Developed in association with Producer John Nordstrand, the program will include some of Puget Sound's best 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 Michael Guthrie, Three Left Feet, Brad Warren, Jack Quick, Burgundy Pearl, Jim Portillo, Stanislove, Jim Nason, Jerin Falkner, Laurie Katherine Carlsson, Larry Murante, Robyn Landis, THE Other Band and more. They will present their work in the warm, family atmosphere of History House's covered outdoor 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" - destined for Georgia in the former satellite state of the Soviet Union, "Willy"- a flying 15 foot model orca whale, "The Safe" - discovered beneath the Dubliner Tavern and the recently acquired 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.

     History House of Greater Seattle is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization. It is supported by the Burke Foundation, Grants from the City of Seattle, the 4Culture King County Lodging Tax and tax-deductible donations from the public.
