Tuesday, June 18, 2019
6-7 pm
Starbucks Reserve Roastery & Tasting Room (1124 Pike St, Seattle, WA 98101)

Starbucks and STG are proud to be long time partners. And because every young performer needs a stage to hone their skills, Starbucks is pleased to welcome STG aspiring musicians into their SODO Reserve Store and Reserve Roastery & Tasting Room as part of the Up Next series. These up and coming artists have participated in STG’s Songwriters Lab and More Music @ The Moore programs. Performing in the Up Next series gives them a chance to showcase their original works to a new audience and the community gets to hear the latest from our areas rising stars in their neighborhood Starbucks locations.

With their feet firmly planted in rootsy, mountain bluegrass, Brograss from Orcas Island brings a new energy to the form with their fast-picking style and brotherly harmonies. Still in their teens, Tashi and Kaj Litch have already “blown the roof off” Seattle’s Benaroya Hall with Brandi Carlile and entertained standing – room-only crowds at venues around the Northwest. Brograss was featured in More Music @ The Moore 2018.
