Name: Indie Folk: Sounds from the Northwest Concert
Date: April 29, 2022
Time: 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM PDT
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.
