    11/13 The Round (162)

    The Round (162)

    With musicians

    Maiah Wynne, Claire Conway, J.R. Rhodes

    + spoken word poet Erin Lynch
    + live painter Sienna Geibel

    @ Fremont Abbey, 7:30pm show, 7pm doors, all ages, some seating

    Music | Poetry | Visual | Collaboration

    The Round features three songwriters sharing the stage, sometimes with a backing band. They alternate with a slam poet while one or two visual artists create live throughout the show and paintings are available for silent auction afterwards.  Audience members sit quietly a few feet away from a low stage, all together to create a unique evening of high quality & collaborative arts. Look forward to a unique finale on most shows, and often some crowd participation.  Musicians can only play the Seattle Round once a year, so it’s always a unique mix.  The Round has featured major acts like Damien Jurado, Nikkita Oliver, Mary Lambert, David Bazan, Haley Heynderickx, Buddy Wakefield, and many more.  www.TheRound.org
