There was some very welcome news this week for a number of Seattle bands and musicians. A grant of $5,000 is on the way, no strings attached. The money is from a non-profit called Black Fret Seattle. It got up and running before the pandemic started. Now, Black Fret has given out its second round of grants, at a time when musicians need it most.
KUOW’s Kim Malcolm spoke to Black Fret’s executive director Ben London about why they do what they do.
