Folklives #2: Brother Willie & The Market Crew

Infectious joy is what Brother Willie & The Market Crew brought to the 2007 Northwest Folklife Festival. Dished out in heaping amounts, their raw and soulful music is the kind of doo-wop gospel that leaves a listener with a permanent smile stretched across a gleeful face. Seattle is home to these singers, who are most often found downtown in front of the original Starbucks, delivering rich, foot-stomping harmonies into the lucky ears of passersby.
