Joe Seamons is a musician and educator based in the Pacific Northwest and dedicated to helping people connect with their heritage through music and storytelling. As director of the Rhapsody Project, he works with people of all ages to explore the influence of regional and personal history through the lens of American blues and folk songs. When he is not frailing the banjo or accompanying his jazz-singing wife Briar on guitar, he is working as a partner to establish cultural space at Black & Tan Hall. Touring internationally in a multi-instrumental duo with fellow songster, Ben Hunter, Joe was awarded 1st place in the 2016 International Blues Challenge, as well as recognition by the Ethnic Heritage Council for excellence in ethnic performance and significant contributions to the development and presentation of the traditional cultural arts in the Pacific Northwest.
