The Secret Gardens of Lake Forest Park Garden Tour and Market Saturday June 15, 2019 

There are many pleasures in a garden and on a garden tour. One of the special pleasures is live music.

Each garden on the tour will have a musician playing for part of the day. The music ranges from jazz, to Latin, cello to flute, fiddles to piano. 

This year some favorites will be returning to the gardens and new musicians who are sure to become favorites will appear for the first time.

Guitarist Mike Good
Guitarist Mike Good will be returning to the gardens to perform his original tunes. He has played at event nearly every year. His music is the perfect accompaniment for a relaxing stroll.

Ken Kassover and Greg Schroeder will be playing jazz piano and trombone with vocals. Both of these professional musicians live in Lake Forest Park. Ken is active in the Puget Sound music scene.

Greg is a Northwest singer/songwriter and a bandleader. One of the best-known Seattle trombonists, Greg has toured with Natalie Cole and Henry James Orchestra.

Latin music of Julian Catford
In another garden, visitors will hear the Latin music of guitarist Julian Catford. He has a diverse musical style including bossa nova, choro, waltz, tango, and ‘flamenco jazz’. Julian has performed around the region at Bumbershoot, Bellevue Jazz festival, ArtStorm and many other locations. 

STRUM: Seattle's Totally Relaxed Ukulele Musicians. This amazing pickup group of ukulele players pays old favorites. They will be at the Town center right in the middle of the Market starting at 1 pm. This foot tapping group will make you want to get up and sing with them.

One of the gardens will feature peaceful and romantic cello music by Tracy Hagen, back by popular demand. Tracy is a teacher as well as a performer who has shared her musical talents around the world.

Milner Family Fiddles
The Milner Family Fiddles is a Lake Forest Park family band that has played in public on a regular basis for over 30 years.

Entertaining with Texas style fiddle and bluegrass with fiddles, guitars and mandolin, they often play at Third Place Commons and at local events.

Peter Ali has also played in the gardens in the past. The music from this Native American flutist seems to float above the garden. Visitors in the past have commented about how much the music enhanced the experience.
