Good Times with More to Come!

October 11, 2010

Last Thursday, Northwest Folklife and Hale’s Ales kicked-off the first of four Northwest Brews & Blues events.  People came out from all over Seattle to enjoy local beer and live music.

Don’t worry if you missed it, because the fun continues every Thursday in October!  This week, Northwest Brews & Blues, from 6:30-8:30 features Cort Armstrong with some Chicken Pickin’ blues.  And remember, 50% of all O’Briens Harvest Ale sold during Brews & Blues benefits Folklife— cheers!

After reviewing the O’Brien’s Harvest Ale (purely for professional purposes…of course), we gave it two thumbs up!  This seasonal amber ale combines a boatload of delicious hops with a malty backbone that quenches any beer lover’s thirst.

In other festivities Northwest Folklife also celebrated the release of our ice cream, Clusters of Folk, at Full Tilt Ice Cream in White Center.  The Not-its! played an awesome show that had all the kids rocking out. Afterwards, Caulfield and his Magical Violin kept the party going with lively beats.

Clusters of Folk ice cream is another fall specialty not-to-be missed.  The creamy blend of horchata ice cream with chocolate dipped granola chunks can make anyone’s mouth water. Try it today at any of the Full tilt ice cream locations until November 16. Don’t forget 10% of all Clusters of Folk ice cream sales benefits Folklife.

With great music and delicious ice-cream, there’s no better way for you and your family to enjoy a Saturday! Full Tilt Ice Cream mixed the winning folk inspired ice cream: Clusters of Folk (horchata ice cream with clusters of granola and chocolate) which is premiering at the event. Also, 10% of all Clusters of Folk ice cream sold, benefits Folklife, so dish up!

The music starts at noon with The Not-Its!,  who are described as “unique in the realm of kids’ music: crunchy, rockin’ guitars combined with smooth, four-part harmonies, all nestled within perfectly crafted pop gems that just happen to be about every-day kid stuff (the first day of school, taking a bath).”

Next on the schedule is the powerpop five-piece band, Caulfield and his Magical Violin. Aimed at young people and beloved by listeners of all ages, “Caulfield and his Magical Violin writes songs that are frank, beautiful, and free of deceit.”

So come out, bring your family and eat some ice cream– we will supply the FREE entertainment!

See you all there!
