July 9th Thorn Creek Express from Genesse, ID. The talented brothers of Thorn Creek Express bring a rich and unique sound to the Inland Northwest. Since their debut six years ago, the four brothers have only heightened their level of musicianship taking up multiple instruments and refining their harmonies into a style they refer to as newgrass Americana.
July 16th Working Poor from Lewiston, ID. The Working Poor is made up of musicians that have been playing music most of their lives and the age range of the members goes from the early 50’s to the early 60’s. These guys were around when the Beatles appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show. We were kids in the 1960’s and absorbed all the great songs and artists of those great years, that quite honestly, will never be repeated. They are a cover band for the most part, with some original music scattered throughout our set-list, but the covers they choose to do are not very widely known. The songs are selected for a good melody and a good story line. Most of them have something unique to say and if they are danceable too, well all the better. http://danielmarkfaller.com/the-working-poor/
July 23rd Shook Twins from Portland Oregon. Born and raised in Sandpoint Idaho, Shook Twins are an Indie folk-pop band now hailing from coniferous forested Portland, Oregon. Identical twins, Katelyn and Laurie Shook, Kyle Volkman and Niko Daoussis form the core quartet. Central elements of the Shook Twins’ sound are a wide range of instrumentation, including banjo, guitar, electric and upright bass, mandolin, electric guitar, electronic drums, face drum (beatbox), glockenspiel, ukulele, banjo drumming and their signature golden EGG. Beautiful twin harmonies, layered upon acoustic and electric instrumentation coupled with Laurie’s inventive use of percussive and ambient vocal loops, and Katelyn’s repurposed telephone microphone, set their sound apart, creating a unique and eccentric blend of folk, roots, groove and soul. www.shooktwins.com
July 30th Kathryn Claire from Portland, OR. She is part of a new generation of traditionally-inspired musicians. Her guitar and fiddle-playing exhibit a technical grace which is matched only by her truly captivating voice and her rare ability to move seamlessly across genres. Her deep love and respect for traditional music has long been a driving influence and those roots can be heard in her own original music. She is thrilled to be performing in Grangeville, ID and to be joined by Don Henson. Don is an incredible multi instrumentalist and when collaborating with Kathryn is generally featured on percussion and piano. Don has toured with Kathryn throughout Oregon and Washington and is currently working with her on her new album. www.kathrynclairemusic.com/
