The upcoming December 8 West Seattle Art Walk will feature Art of Music with events in the Admiral Junction, Alaska Junction, and Morgan Junction!
December 8 – Explorative singer/songwriter Katrina Kope @ Great American Diner & Bar. With 8 albums under her belt, Katrina has garnered massive respect among peers for her voice and approach to songwriting. She certainly has no fear of exploring new genres and material ranging from electronica, funk, reggae, trip-hop, R&B, and vocal improvisation. However, Katrina might tell you that her roots reside deep in jazz and blues. Check out her latest single “Above and Beyond” You can find her on Instagram @KatrinaKope Click here for ’Katrina Kope’s flyer

Happy Holidays from the West Seattle Art Walk and Art of Music!
Please enjoy this original holiday parody from Art of Music coordinator and accomplished lyricist John Redenbaugh.
Thank you John for bringing the joy of music to this year’s West Seattle Art Walk!
To bring guaranteed holiday cheer for all, sing along with the following lyrics to the tune of Good King Wenceslas.
HOMETOWN HOLIDAYS BRING CHEER
Parody lyrics by John Redenbaugh
Hometown holidays bring cheer,
Shopping, dining, sipping.
Bright lights, gifts for family dear,
Weather can be nipping.
Junction visits, time of joy,
Friendships over meal time.
Cash and credit cards deploy,
Memories of bells that chime.
Junction treasures do abound,
During this December.
Shop Small Saturday is found,
Something to remember.
Art Walk Evening, Silver Belles,
Paired with Art of Music.
Santa’s House with Christmas spells,
Offerings that are unique.
Stay tuned for updates on Art of Music events June through December 2022!

This special event, presented by the West Seattle Junction Association, was created to complement Art Walk for the benefit of ALL Art Lovers.
