about

The Vashon Sessions is a collaborative music project whose goal is to bring together some of the Pacific Northwest’s best folk musicians to create something new.

Each summer, a dozen or so musicians gather in the little house on Vashon Island, which has been converted overnight into a recording studio. Some of the musicians have known each other for decades; others have never met before. There is no set list, no prior rehearsal, no production schedule. The musicians’ goal is simple: in the course of a weekend, they will make an album.

The Vashon Sessions aims to record and produce the music that is at its best in living rooms and kitchens, to capture the joy that musicians feel in playing together, and to explore the ways that different genres of traditional and folk music can interface with each other to create new and exciting sounds - in short, to capture the best of contemporary folk music.
