An exciting new generation in live music takes the stage this week at the Snoqualmie Arts Market in historic downtown Snoqualmie.

Performing at 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 10, is LocoMotive, a young rock band formed a year ago at Big Star Studio on Snoqualmie Ridge. LocoMotive has also performed at Finaghty’s Irish Pub and The Bindlestick, sharpening their talents on a repertoire  of classic hits from the 1980s.  Live music performances are becoming an important part of the Arts Market, which started July 27.

“The music performances are like a real-life soundtrack to the whole scene here,” says coordinator Kim Ewing. “Guests can be talking with vendors, sitting down to eat, or shopping for  produce, but they really take note of the music and have commented on it. For me, this simply  means the music is good and they enjoy it.”

Snoqualmie Arts Market (SAM) is at Railroad Community Park, noon to 4 p.m. on Saturdays through Aug. 24. In addition to music, SAM showcases local artists and artisan crafters, hand-made burgers, salads, pastries and frozen yogurt, along with fresh produce from Oxbow Farm.
