During this year’s Alaska Folk Festival, we filmed ten bands in a tiny hotel room at the Alaskan Hotel as part of our Red Carpet Concert series. The videos are inspired by NPR’s popular Tiny Desk Concerts. The only criteria for the short concerts are that the music is original, and that it is played on the arts room’s red carpet wherever it may be—at KTOO, in a parking garage or on a beach.
The Atlanta-based Vega String Quartet kicked off the 30th annual Juneau Jazz & Classics Festival’s Brown Bag Concert series Monday. Nearly 200 Juneau students attended the free performance in the State Office Building atrium.
