Calendar/Event Details

Roots in the Park is a summer tradition at Washington state parks. 

Families, couples and friends gather to flatfoot, tap, swing dance or listen quietly as musicians play banjos, fiddles, acoustic guitars and smooth jazz.

While the State Parks Folk and Traditional Arts Program plans to resume live concerts in July, the June series will be virtual. But that doesn’t mean you can’t flatfoot or tap in your yard or your living room...

Roots in the Park features four episodes, at 7 p.m. every Thursday in June, on State Parks’ YouTube, Folk and Traditional Arts playlist.

Each episode will last around 45 minutes. After each session, viewers can find individual songs from the events on this channel.

Through the virtual programs, performers will share the stories and traditions behind their tunes and teach techniques to those seeking a deeper dive.

June 3: Ben Hunter & Joe Seamons

June 10: Neftalí Rivera & Trío Borikuas

June 17: Briar

June 24: Squirrel Butter
