Every year, the lineups for Issaquah’s Concerts on the Green have some sort of overarching theme. For the 19th season, organizer David Harris thought he’d try something different — let the audience decide.
“At the last concert from last year, I asked the crowd to let me know what bands they’d like to see or see again,” Harris said. “Most bands this year, then, are ones the audience would like to see. A majority are ones they asked to see again.”

Josh Rawlings has had a solid foothold in the Seattle music scene for several years, but the past year has seen his stock soar to unprecedented levels.
Rawlings, a 2001 graduate of Skyline High School, is an accomplished pianist who dabbles in a rainbow of genres, from classic jazz and rock to hip-hop and soul.
A serendipitous connection shot Rawlings into the national limelight. His jazz trio, The Teaching — including bassist Evan Flory-Barnes and drummer Jeremy Jones — earned a 2014 Grammy Award nomination for their collaboration on “BomBom,” part of rapper Macklemore’s and producer Ryan Lewis’ award-winning album, “The Heist.”
