Tribute to Mariide
Northwest Folklife Festival
May 26, 2023 3-4:30 PM Cornish Courtyard
The Folk Community lost a great musician and friend in November 2022. Mariide Widman devoted her life to her family, music, and sense of humanity and fair play.
We will celebrate Mariide’s life at Folklife 2023. Folks will sing her favorite songs and speak about her friendship and achievements.
Add your name to the hat beforehand if you are interested in sharing a song or reminiscence by May 20th. We may not be able to accommodate everyone to present at the memorial, but do join us to sing along.
Click below to offer a remembrance or song in a simple form. You’ll be added to the program as time allows. Brevity appreciated.
