Green Festival Speakers

John Hayden


John Hayden and his company, JAMTOWN™, celebrate a worldwide love for music. Since 1995 JAMTOWN has imported instruments through fair trade relationships with low-income artisans and co-operatives around the world. JAMTOWN products rely on indigenous design & original ideas to generate awareness about fair trade and the musician within each of us. John is a pioneer in the field of accessible music technology and will ask for your participation in a demonstration today! He facilitates school, business and community rhythm events featuring hands-on participation. He coordinates the Folklife Festival Rhythm Tent (don’t miss it next weekend!) and teaches parent/toddler, after school, and adult beginning hand drum classes in North Seattle. JAMTOWN award-winning products are available at museums, zoo stores, toy stores, music stores, specialty retailers, education catalogs and gift catalogs throughout the U.S.
