Welcome to the Northwest Folklife Festival 2018 schedule!

Maiah Wynne & Her Sleepless Knights

To experience Maiah Wynne is to follow a wandering butterfly as it leads you away to a land of delicate melodies, mid-tempo folk rhythms, and perfectly tailored instrumentation. A multi-instrumentalist and artistic shapeshifter, Wynne is adept at embodying a mood or theme and then swapping it for another. What emerges is an engaging experience bound together by Wynne’s haunting vocal tones. What’s more, Wynne is intentional in the subjects she chooses to write about. She believes in art – music in particular – as a means for change and has dedicated projects to causes including the preservation of ocean life and mental health. Her emotional and empathetic storytelling heightens the beauty of her tracks, and the result is powerful. Follow the butterfly, you won’t be disappointed.
