Folklife Haiku Performance

The following three photographs show a performance by Haiku Northwest poets at the Center House Theatre at Seattle Center for the 2008 Northwest Folklife festival on 26 May 2008. The readers were Michael Dylan Welch, Marilyn Sandall, William Scott Galasso, and Connie Hutchison, with Dejah Léger on guitar. I served as editor, curating a selection of haiku by Haiku Northwest members, arranged to celebrate the themes of earth, air, fire, and water. We also performed for the 2005 Folklife Festival, and you can listen to a recording of part of that Haiku Northwest performance [link no longer works]. +
