Briar and Joe Seamons performing at Marketplace

Both Briar and Joe Seamons grew up in tiny Pacific Northwest communities where their fathers worked in local paper mills. They met in 2014 at the Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival, where they began to bond over a shared love of Bessie Smith, dancing, and banjos. In 2016, the duo, now a couple, began performing jazz, blues and folk songs throughout the Northwest.
Together,  in 2017, they began bringing teenaged musicians from South Seattle to join them at the annual PT Blues festival so that more youth, and especially students of African American ancestry, could connect with their cultural heritage. This work continues to this day, as a part of The Rhapsody Project, a non-profit music education program that is building a model for cultural sustainability through roots culture in America.
