by | Oct 31, 2014

Here are a few highlights of what’s happening in Greenwood and Phinney Ridge this weekend. Check our Events calendar for more.

Taproot Theatre is hosting a special Halloween event from 6-8 p.m. Friday night with dinner, cookie decorating and entertainment from the Taproot Theatre Improv Team, 208 N. 85th St.

For thirty-plus years, Johnsmith has been sharing his music all across America and abroad, becoming a favorite at festivals, clubs, house concerts, and songwriting camps. With his faded jeans, twinkly blue eyes, his infectious smile, John immediately connects with audiences—you get the sense that this is a man who loves his life, his family and friends, and who loves nothing more than sharing that love in song and story.

In addition to being a Kerrville New Folk Winner, Johnsmith has released seven solo CDs to rave reviews, leads musical tours to Ireland, teaches songwriting, and has served as a staff songwriter in Nashville. This is his first Puget Sound-area concert as part of the release tour of his latest CD, “The Longing Road.”
