SING YOUR SOUL ALIVE! & MEDICINE TRUCK @ Northwest Folklife!! This grand Circle Sing & Improvisational A Cappella Trio will begin on Sunday, May 24th, 12:00 - 1:20pm. Cornish Courtyard is where we will be!

A Premier a cappella vocal improv trio and a collision of creative genius! Christian Swenson, Travis Johnson and Debby Boland Watt take their singing seriously but sound is for the sculpting! Join three incredible vocalists that will test what you know about a cappella music, passing you on the turns, running over what ails you and then flooring it when you think they just gotta be outta gas! Medicine Truck will invite you to wonder, laugh and then join them.
