Wonderful post from a public folklore colleague:
As you know, I write about the Poetry of Everyday Life but when the world’s greatest expert on proverbs looks at Trump’s language, he finds very little of it. The language a person uses reflects their worldview, so it should come as no surprise that this artless president would propose the elimination of the National Endowment for the Arts. I explore this travesty of language and thought in Donald and the Arts, my new blogpost.

LAST CONCERT by SIN FRONTERAS for their 2016 NEA-FUNDED WA STATE TOUR. Saturday, June 18th at 6:30pm at Confluence Gallery & Art Center in Twisp.
At a time in the Pacific Northwest when there is growing involvement in arts and social justice, there has been renewed interest in the nueva canción (“new song”) movement from Latin America. Seattle area trio Sin Fronteras (“without borders“), are highly skilled performers of this tradition and emigrated to the U.S. from Chile, Colombia, and Mexico. They describe the music as having “vibrant rhythms, soulful melodies, and breathtaking harmonies – songs of life, humanity, and love.” The song lyrics alone are some of the most beautiful poetry in the Spanish language.
The roots of nueva canción are based in the rural folk music of Chile, and spread from there to Argentina, Spain, and other Latin countries. In support of the “common people”, the music made extensive use of traditional musical forms and instruments, such as the quena, zampoña, charango and cajón, and feature the guitar (from Chilean cueca). Sin Fronteras continues this tradition, adding the cuatro, Argentinian bombo (bass drum), and Venezuelan harp.
Tickets for the concert are $15, and can be purchased in advance (call 509-997-2787) or at the door. Door opens at 6:00pm. Beer and wine will be served. This concert is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, 4Culture, and Northwest Heritage Resources. For more information call 509-997-2787, or email: [email protected].

PERFORMANCE of COWBOY POETRY, STORY and SONG in Shoreline. Friday, June 3rd at 7:00pm at the Shorecrest High School library, 2nd floor, 15343 25th Ave. NE, Shoreline, WA
Northwest Heritage Resources is pleased to present this event in partnership with the Briarcrest Neighborhood Association of Shoreline.
The performance will feature award winning cowboy poet, Sharon “Silver” Glenn of Yakama, her cowboy musician husband, George Thomsen, and rancher, farmer and cowboy poet Glenn Bair. Sharon was born in the Ellensburg area, daughter of a cowboy father and a homesteader’s daughter, and grew up surrounded by horses and livestock. She and her husband George have lived the cowboy life for many years, working for local cattle and sheep outfits. George is a lifetime buckaroo and horse trainer. Together they perform as the musical duo, Northfork, singing traditional cowboy songs of the rural west, as well as songs of George’s own composition and Sharon’s poetry.
Glenn Bair grew up cattle ranching and farming in Ephrata, and like Sharon and George, his poetry and songs are true stories from the cowboy and ranching life he has lived. All three have performed at the well known Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nevada, the Charley Russel Cowboy Gathering in Lewiston, Idaho, Cowboy Poets of Idaho in Emmett, the Columbia River Cowboy Gathering in Kennewick, Spirit of the West in Ellensburg, the Northwest Folklife Festival, and events throughout the Northwest.
A suggested donation of $5 per person over 18 can be made at the door. Space is limited, so reservations are recommended. For reservations or more information email: [email protected] or call, 206-306-1181. The June 3rd event is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, 4Culture, and Northwest Heritage Resources.

CONCERT of Songs of Labor History with Rebel Voices! Saturday, April 16th at 7pm in Index at the River House Cafe at 444 Avenue A. Suggested donation of $5.
For over 20 years, Susan Lewis and Janet Stecher have created incredible harmony as members of The Belles of Hoboken, Shays' Rebellion, and since 1989, Rebel Voices. They took their name from the book by Joyce Kornbluh, Rebel Voices: An IWW Anthology, a collection of writings, songs, poems, and cartoons by members of the Industrial Workers of the World. "Wobblies" have always been rabble rousers, unionists, artists, and singers who attack the issues of their time with passion and humor. This same spirit moves Rebel Voices today as they sing out for social and economic justice. With an integrated vision of theater, harmony and politics, Janet Stecher and Susan Lewis fill the stage with rare power and compassion.
Janet is also the founding musical director of the Seattle Labor Chorus, and has served as a long-term board member of the Pacific NW Labor History Association. Both Susan and Janet are members in good standing of Local 1000 of the American Federation of Musicians.
Presented by NW Heritage Resources in partnership with Index Historical Society. Funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, 4Culture, and NW Heritage Resources.

QUETZAL - COLLECTIVE SONGWRITING WORKSHOP and FANDANGO
Feb. 5th, 2016 in Brechemin Hall (UW School of Music)
4:30p-6:00p (Workshop) 7:30p-9:30p (Fandango)
This event is sponsored by the University of Washington School of Music programs in Ethnomusicology and Music Education.

"Collective Songwriting: Testimonio, Theory and Knowledge Production"
A song as a sonic and literary manifestation is life’s soundscape, a unique, cathartic memento as well as a powerful political tool. A song can also be an important historical text. A person’s t estimonio (testimony), life views, triumphs, aphorisms,and struggles can be expressed in song lyrics. In this way, song lyrics can transmit ways of knowing and theorizing about life. It can also be viewed as alternative ways of creating knowledge. When practiced in community, songwriting can be a powerful exercise in consensus building and collective knowledge production. Dr. Martha
Gonzalez and Quetzal Flores will discuss the collective songwriting process as it is utilized by [email protected] Artivistas (artist/activists) in East L.A. towards different ends.
They will share the history and development of the method, the different stages of the process and the significance it has had in Chicano Latino communities in East LA.
Gonzalez and Flores will also conduct a Fandango workshop, a participatory music and dance practice native to the state of Veracruz, Mexico. Gonzalez and Flores will discuss how this practice has been utilized by [email protected] artivistas to build and/or strengthen community.

HAPPY Whatever-You-Celebrate! NW Heritage Resources wishes you happiness and joy in celebrating whatever traditions that are important and meaningful to you at this time of year - the Solstice, Channukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, New Year, and others not mentioned here (or that we may not know about). At a time when we have presidential candidates inciting fear and distrust of Muslims and other immigrants, it is vitally important that we openly embrace the diversity of America and the opportunity to celebrate when and what we choose!
