A not-so-silent night

Slightly Silent Night, or Snoqualmie Unplugged II, was a great success. On Friday, Dec. 11, great music was brought to Snoqualmie venues by local artists.

Slightly Silent Night, or Snoqualmie Unplugged II, was a great success. On Friday, Dec. 11, great music was brought to Snoqualmie venues by local artists.

The ability to travel from one Snoqualmie location to the next, and see and listen to great local musicians, was awesome. My wife Teresa and I walked from one merchant to the next, enjoying great music, reminiscent of childhood Christmas caroling. Moving from restaurants to coffee shops, we were seeing and meeting the people in our community.

Four merchants who participated were in the Snoqualmie Ridge: Uncorked Wine Bar, Finaghty’s Irish Pub, Ana’s Mexican Family Restaurant and SR Athletic Club.

There were four more businesses from historic Snoqualmie: Snoqualmie Brewery & Taproom, Koko Beans Coffee, Isadora’s Café, and the Chew Chew Café.

These eight businesses joined with the city of Snoqualmie and the Snoqualmie Art’s Commission to present the best of Snoqualmie’s local musicians. The groups that played this year were: David Ayers, Fire Pit, Down the Road, Mississippi John and Marlin Martindale, Fairly Honest Abe and the Liars, Bob Antone, Left Coast Gypsies, and Kyle Twede and friends.

The event was such a success that three unplugged events are planned for the 2010 musical season. Musicians and businesses that would like to participate for the 2010 season can contact me at at jeff.warren.mgms@statefarm.com for more information.
