SONGS OF BLACK FOLK returned even bigger, bolder, and grander for its 2024 production on Sunday evening June 16th, at 7:00 pm at the iconic Paramount Theatre in Seattle.

SONGS OF BLACK FOLK will once again present a music tradition that began on the African continent and was transported to the Americas, via slave ships, and took root in the daily sufferings of an enslaved Black people who chose to survive and who fought to be free. SBF will feature the rise of the Negro Spirituals and their evolution into other Black musical genres including, blues, jazz, Gospel, R&B, Hip-Hop, and even spoken word.


The mission of SONGS OF BLACK FOLK is to utilize the Juneteenth holiday weekend as a compelling backdrop for a worldclass “Fine Arts” production that features elite African American artists, both national and local. This provides the Northwest audience with a Black Cultural Arts experience that rivals the most elite productions presented anywhere in the United States. In essence, SBF is the Northwest’s opportunity to annually experience the best of Black folk.
