Indoor folk music concerts in Seattle and nearby areas. There are also outdoor festivals during the warmer months, notably the Folklife festival over Memorial Day weekend.
I was a host of the "Lunch With Folks" and "The Outskirts" shows on KBCS radio for 16 years. I also compiled a top folk airplay chart from 1997 to 2017. The chart continues under the auspices of Folk Alliance at folkradio.org. Just to keep my hand in at software development (I'm retired), I decided to write a Python/BeautifulSoup program for a local folk music calendar. This calendar is scraped from the websites of local presenters and venues. Comments?
This calendar is suspended. Because of the COVID-19 corona virus, local concerts are not being performed. We will resume when concerts do.
