Fair Trade Music to meet, seek sustainable Seattle club scene

SEATTLE — How can musicians partner with local clubs to build a more sustainable, professional music scene? That’s what will be discussed at the next general meeting of Fair Trade Music, a new grassroots campaign of Northwest union and non-union musicians supported by the Musician’s Association of Seattle, Local 76-493 AFM and the Musicians’ Union, Local 99 AFM (Portland).

The meeting, which is open to ALL musicians, will be Monday, Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. at the Seattle Labor Temple, 2800 1st Ave.
