MUSICAL ACTS :
Bradley Andrews - In a blend of folk, jazz and Americana, Olympia-based musician Bradley Andrews plays a finger-picking style with strong rhythms and clean melodies. His songs focus on the universal stories of human existence such as falling in love, the search for meaning, and growing old.
The Stragglers - With haunting vocal harmonies and a flair for improvisation, Portland bluegrass trio, the Stragglers, travel the back roads of bluegrass and country. Winding through barn-burners and ballads, the Stragglers always take the scenic route.
On guitar or banjo, the allure of Dark Folk/Americana songstress, Caroline Hecht, creeps up on audiences like a strong drink, effortlessly enchanting. Nominated for “Best Vocalist”, “Best Songwriter”, and “Best Bluegrass Band” by Motif Magazine in 2013, her unique originals are vastly dynamic, drawing frequent comparisons to PJ Harvey, Cat Power, and Mazzy Star.
