The Steve Griggs Ensemble performs an encore of Listen to Seattle at the Duwamish Longhouse. The 75-minute original program of narration and music is inspired by the life and words of Chief Seattle, weaving indigenous customs and local history with jazz composition and improvisation. With Steve Griggs, Christian Milo Petersen, Jay Thomas, James Rasmussen and Susan Pascal
Chief Seattle’s enlightened example of making peace between indigenous and invader, along with his wise words of human symbiosis with the natural world, provide vital hope for the future of our world. How can crucial lessons from Chief Seattle be brought to today’s teaming metropolis on the land of his ancestors? This program is one attempt to answer that question.
