It’s our favorite party of the year, and you’re invited! Each year, the Golden Ear Awards recognize and celebrate the outstanding achievements of the previous year across the Seattle jazz scene with an evening of performance and presentations.
Through a democratic nomination and voting process, Seattle jazz fans and performers take stock and show gratitude for the region’s vibrant jazz ecology. Join us as we honor the winners during the awards party on Monday, March 11, at the Royal Room in Columbia City, the city of Seattle’s newest official Arts & Cultural district.
Beloved radio host Jim Wilke emcees the night’s events, with presentations by special guests in the community. Get ready to get down to the sounds of Alex Dugdale’s crackling, straight-ahead Fade quintet, featuring John Hansen on piano and the 200 Trio members Cole Schuster (guitar), Greg Feingold (bass), and Max Holmberg (drums). Named a 2017 Golden Ear Emerging Artist of the Year, Dugdale has been ascending ever since, recently celebrating 13 years performing saxophone and tap dancing with the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra and appearing on the cover of the February issue of Earshot Jazz. Bookending the awards ceremony with two hard-hitting sets, Fade is sure to set the tone for a night of celebration and ultimate community hang.
