WHAT WILL HAPPEN AT THE PICNIC

Live Music, Games, and Fun!

Stephanie Anne Johnson

(they/them)

Stephanie Anne Johnson is that special singer who can don a cowboy hat and sing over a slide as old timers weep, and they have wowed judges on the immensely popular NBC TV series, The Voice, showcasing their gifts. Their music, which is rooted in all that’s American, expresses the pain of the past, the roots of the down home and the hope that hard work will lead to proper reward.

Stephanie Anne Johnson has opened for acts that include political figure Bernie Sanders, and artists such as Macy Gray, Mavis Staples, Robert Cray, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Durand Jones, Joseph, Cedric Burnside, and Black Joe Lewis.

Elizabeth Hill & the Valley Folk

Elizabeth Hill
& the Valley Folk

(she/her)

Elizabeth Hill is a queer musician and visual artist who lives in the Snoqualmie Valley at Lake Joy. She most typically plays banjo and often plays with others in a band called Elizabeth Hill & the Valley Folk. We play both traditional and original Americana music with an Appalachian Mountain root and often spice those tunes with sounds from other musical genres including bluegrass, blues, country and jazz.

Get to know Elizabeth Hill & the Valley Folk HERE.

Xander Corbett

(he/him)

Get ready to experience Xander Corbett with special guest, Michael Van London, at our second annual Pride Picnic! Xander Corbett is here to grace the valley with an intimate retrospective set just three months ahead of the release of his new album, ‘The Red Album’.

Get to know Xander HERE.

Bilee Grace

(they/them)

Bilee Grace is a genderless folk singer-songwriter based on the Olympic peninsula. Taking inspiration from subversive queer folk and country artists like Trixie Mattel and Katie Pruitt, Bilee’s original songs focus on the experience of discovering oneself where one happens to be. Where Bilee happens to be is basking in the protective shadow of the western red cedars and Douglas firs of the Olympic mountains, and their music is firmly rooted in the landscape.

Get to know Bilee HERE.
