We are excited to announce the addition of Singer/Songwriter, folk musician and activist Joel Rafael to the 2019 Salmonfest lineup. For nearly half a century Joel has been writing and delivering powerful and meaningful songs to countless causes, venues, and festivals. His recent song STRONG, with Jason Mraz collaboration, was performed with Jason at Standing Rock. The message is symbiotic with our efforts to protect our epic and timeless salmon waters and we’re looking forward to watching Jason and Joel perform their song at Salmonfest! Rafael has opened shows and shared stages with artists including Emmylou Harris, Jackson Browne, Joan Baez, John Lee Hooker, Arlo Guthrie, Bonnie Raitt, John Trudell, Laura Nyro, Kris Kristofferson, Dar Williams, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Odetta, and Taj Mahal.
