Breaking News from The Westerlies / by Andy Clausen

Dear Besterlies,

Today is a big day in Westerlies history! We are so thrilled to announce Chloe Rowlands as a new member of The Westerlies. Chloe is a longtime friend and extraordinary musician, and we are so excited to welcome her to the band. 


The four of us will be returning to our hometown of Seattle this fall for WESTERLIES FEST, a four-day music festival in Seattle, September 20-23, 2018.

Combining evening performances with daytime in-school concerts and a weekend creative music workshop, we'll reach over 1,000 local students in Seattle and surrounding underserved areas to give back to the city that raised us.

Special guests to include vocalist Theo Bleckmann, singer/songwriter Kate Davis, contemporary ensemble TORCH, and poets Troy Osaki, Azura Tyabji, Zora "Rainchild" Seboulisa, and Esther Eidenberg-Noppe. Presented at Seattle Pacific University with Common Tone Arts.
