07/26/19 Mr. and Mrs Something
Weaving the soulful passion of blues with the honesty of folk, Mr & Mrs Something offer a refreshing taste of hope that feels like coming home. The Seattle-based duo’s sound is organic and genuine—musically with their natural voices and acoustic instrumentation and lyrically by juxtaposing the rawness of life’s struggles with compassion, hope, and love. Filled with rich melodies, smooth harmonies, classy chord progressions, and thoughtful lyrics, their music will make you feel like you’re getting a warm musical hug. http://mrandmrssomething.com/
08/02/19 One Lane Bridge
From Van Zandt in East Whatcom County, One Lane Bridge plays in a variety of styles, from originals to classics, jazz, folk, country, pop and contemporary tunes. Specializing in vocal harmonies, the group often has their own take on familiar songs.
08/09/19 Queens Bluegrass
Hard driving traditional bluegrass with sweet harmonies!
08/16/19 W Lovers
A cultured blend of alt country and Americana that rings of rustic small towns and makes the listener feel warm and at home. Their songs are about love, road trips, moonshine, old towns and rodeos. https://www.thewlovers.com/
08/23/19 Weatherside Whiskey Band
Weatherside Whiskey Band’s five piece alt-country and bluegrass ensemble has been resonating with Pacific Northwest crowds since they stormed the scene with a seven-track EP, “Pickin’ the Pines” in 2012. This “whiskey-swilling roadhouse outfit” is renowned for its down home sound with three-part vocal harmonies, acoustic guitar, percussion, and upright bass. http://www.weathersidewhiskeyband.com/
08/30/19 The Lowest Pair
With their bare-bones instrumentation and country-inspired, heartstring-tugging narratives, The Lowest Pair might be one of the best under-the-radar Americana duos today.https://thelowestpair.com/
09/06/19 Handsome and Gretyl & Moody Bear
Handsome and Gretyl is an upbeat, indie folk pop duo, and a married one at that. Gretyl sings and writes the songs and Handsome, aka Brett, conveniently produces and records them. Their live show is an inviting and fun experience. One H&G supporter said it best- “it’s as if you were just sitting on their front porch, listening”. http://www.handsomeandgretyl.com/
Moody Bear offers melancholic indie vibes accompanied by raw, honest vocals. Frontman and writer, Caleb Jacobson, grew up in the Midwest and moved to the Pacific Northwest 5 years ago. Moody Bear’s music reflects the dynamic range in the Washington mountains and oceans. From dreamy melodies and guitar parts to driving bass and anthemic vocals, Moody Bear delivers a relatable version of the human experience through song. https://www.moodybearmusic.com/
09/13/19 Pickled Okra
Pickled Okra is in an entirely different category of Americana string band. Skirting the edges of many genres, their sound and style is perhaps the child of bluegrass married with funk, reggae, rockabilly, and some other surprises. At the core of it all is the Pickled Okra duo: Todd and Paisley Gray, a charmingly quirky yet well-dressed ol’ married couple. Their intricate harmonies weave together with the high tones of mandolin, and low bellows of the upright bass. Banjo is often added to the mix, and dished out with expertise by one of several renowned local masters. They have gained recognition for delighting audiences throughout the Pacific Northwest, and their recordings have attracted the attention of music industry fixtures as far away as the UK.
