Music | Poetry | Visual | Collaboration
Three songwriters sharing the stage,
Alternating with a slam poet,
Visual artists creating live,
Joined by a mix of backing musicians,
While the audience sits quietly a few feet away from a low stage,
All together to create a unique evening of high quality & collaborative arts…
Founded in 2005 by arts curator Nathan Marion, The Round started in Seattle at various venues. such as The Triple Door, Bumbershoot, Neumos, Rodstol Lane Farm, and other outdoor venues… the Abbey is definitely The Round’s home.
The Seattle Round has developed into an amazing volunteer-powered arts experience and it’s definitely not your normal concert. Musicians are only allowed to play once a year, so it keeps the lineups fresh!
The event has been or is active in other cities such as Portland OR, Tacoma WA, Austin TX, Anacortes WA, Vashon Island WA, and Lebanon PA.
