Jesse Palidofsky and Glen Yakushiji have been part of the folk music community for many years. They spent many summers working together at a folk music retreat where they met wonderful musicians, heard amazing music, and became part of a world of music made by regular people. Jesse’s many performances and the monthly Seekers Church singalong came out of that experience. Over the years Glen and Jesse have been happy to bring that kind of music to the Seekers community, and now they’ve begun sharing it with our neighbors in Takoma Park.
From the beginning of our dreaming about a home for Seekers Church on Carroll Street, Jesse and Glen began to think about this new space as a place where we could host concerts, and musicians could share their artistry, skill, and vision. We were surprised to discover that Takoma Park, which supports a folk music festival, and an excellent folk music store, didn’t have a venue for folk music concerts. We are finally making that idea into reality.
Starting last April, Seekers Church began hosting the Carroll Cafe, a monthly evening of folk music, offered in a comfortable environment with light refreshments.
