American Roots Concert: Foleada

August 5, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Come to a free concert at the Deception Pass State Park amphitheater (Discover Pass required)! Our American Roots Concert Series is hosted in partnership with the Washington State Parks and Recreation’s Folk & Traditional Arts Program. These concerts are held every Saturday, July 8 – August 26 at the Amphitheater!


August 5: Foleada
Time: 7 – 8 PM
Location: The Amphitheater (near West Beach)

Foleada is a Seattle-based Forró band with a focus on Pé de Serra style. Forró is the heartbeat of Northeast Brazil and it draws on many musical styles, from Afro-Brazilian music like samba and baião to European polkas. On the other hand, Forró dance borrows from Cuban salsa and Samba de Gafieira, a Brazilian ballroom dance. In other words, it’s a partner dance and it’s a lot of fun! The band features Brazilian vocalist Adriana Giordano, accordionists Jamie Maschler and Gabe Hall-Rodrigues, Michael Catts on bass, Jeff Busch and Sam Esecson on percussion.
