The Blackberry Bushes- February 1st @7pm
The Blackberry Bushes are a bluegrass trio who draw from these deep roots of American traditional music to create a playful and resonant sound with both twang and sophistication
Luke and Kati - February 2nd, 3rd + 4th @7pm
Kati Claborn and Luke Ydstie met in 2008 and have been playing music together most days since. While much of that time has been focused on more official projects (Blind Pilot, Hook and Anchor, Alialujah Choir, The Hackles) the pair has gradually accumulated a body of work that finds it's home in the sparser setting of two instruments and two voices. Songs are written by one, the other, or both, and the resulting spectrum finds cohesion in thoughtful arrangements and the strong delivery of two harmony singers well accustomed to each other's voices. While the music is generally in the neighborhood of folk and country, the instrumentation is often guitar and banjo, and the duo usually remains a duo, the approach frequently varies if a differing inclination prevails or a friend stops by to sit in. What does remain a constant is lovely, unpretentious music from people who love to play together.
Ian McFeron- February 13th + 14th @9pm
Ian McFeron’s writing has been compared to Bob Dylan, John Lennon and Ryan Adams. Over the course of a decade-long independent music career, he has gained a loyal following and attracted media attention stretching across the Atlantic. He currently tours in support of his 7th album Time Will Take You, recorded in Nashville, TN with Grammy nominated Producer/Guitarist Doug Lancio and members of Ryan Adams band The Cardinals.
The Winterlings-February 27th + 28th @9pm
With songs as vivid as feature films, Seattle alt-folk trio The Winterlings take listeners on unexpected journeys through flooded barns and cedar forests, chemistry labs and ferries crossing Puget Sound. Featuring male and female lead vocals and 3-part harmonies, acoustic and electric guitars, ukulele, violin,
banjitar, and percussion, The Winterlings build bonfires of sound to dance and dream beside.
