The Past Concerts featured Pinniped on June 8, and Hank & Claire on July 13. This issue features a new article: Elijah Wald – Folk Musician, Writer, Ethnomusicologist, by Stewart Hendrickson; and a Note From Your Director. The Upcoming Concert at the Couth Buzzard will feature Curtis & Loretta on Friday, September 14 – there will be no concert in August. On Saturday Sept. 22, at the Couth Buzzard, there will be a celebration of Stew and Betty Hendrickson for their work with the PNWFS. Every 2nd Saturday at the Couth Buzzard from noon – 1:30 pm, Stew’s Folk Music Corner will feature tunes, songs, and community singing. The Events page lists some great concerts through the next few months. Keep tuned and revisit the NW HOOT as new articles may appear along with a new video of the week. We are still looking for more writers for the NW HOOT (send us your ideas and articles). Donations – Help support the Pacific NW Folklore Society.
