Video: Summer Concerts at Hiawatha wrap up with Star Anna

This year’s Summer Concerts at Hiawatha lineup was more star-studded than ever, including the closing act for the sixth and final concert of the summer tonight: Star Anna and the Laughing Dogs. Star Anna and most of her band live in West Seattle now, so they’re hometown musical heroes:

Admiral Neighborhood Association president Katy Walum put the call out for concertgoers to donate diapers for WestSide Baby, and we checked in on the early response:

Katy says she’s thrilled with the response this year and expects the series will continue next year:

P.S. No Conan O’Brien sightings this week. But we did spot a couple familiar faces:

On the left, you probably recognize City Councilmember Bruce Harrell. On the right, someone we’ve known since shortly after we arrived in West Seattle 20 years ago, Dr. Shepherd Siegel, director of school-to-work for Seattle Public Schools. You just never know who you’re going to see at the outdoor concerts and movies in summertime; we’re glad to have been able to co-sponsor the series again this year (the full list of 20+ sponsors is on the right side of this webpage – if you enjoyed the free concerts, let ‘em know!).

  1. Thank you for your faith in us, WS Blog, and for sponsoring the Admiral Neighborhood Association’s Summer Concerts at Hiawatha since its inception three years ago! Because of you (and generous sponsors like you), we’re able to bring in incredible local artists like Star Anna & The Laughing Dogs and offer their music free of charge to this awesome community. Thanks to all who came out this season – hope you carry the beautiful memories for a lifetime. I know I will.

  2. Great show last night, thank you.
    In all the excitement, my 7 year old lost a blue wallet with a shark on it somewhere in park (and $26.00 for his camping trip this w-end). He is beyond sad! If it was found we can be contacted at 206-313-9576. Thank you in advance!
