THE SHOOK TWINS Laurie and Katelyn are twin sisters from Idaho who reside currently in Portland and have been tearing it up lately on the Pacific Northwest music circuit. Their music is contemporary folk permeated with world music rhythms, singer-songwritery depth, literary aspirations, and pop playfulness. Their sound is witty, soulful, mischievous, and swinging all at the same time; and their stage show is a fast-paced juggling act of banjos, guitars, mandolins, a giant golden egg, djembe, altered vocal effects, beat boxing, and looping. They're able to mix traditional folk elements, such as passionate sibling harmonizing, with modern gadgetry and experimentation in seamless fashion thanks to their onstage exuberance, charm and rock-solid talent.
THE COUNTRY MOURNS
The Country Mourns are Misisipi Mike Wolf and Jody Richardson. They play all original songs in a variety of Americana styles. Both Jody and Mike write and sing for the duo, with Jody handling the fiddle duties and Mike on the guitar. Misisipi Mike is a mainstay in the Bay Area Americana music scene, as the leader of Misisipi Rider, the Midnight Gamblers and countless other cherished local acts. Misisipi Mike Wolf was voted "Best Singer/Songwriter' of 2011 on the San Francisco Bay Guardian readers poll, and his songs have been featured on hit TV shows like "True Blood" (HBO), "Justified" (FX) and "Big Love" (Showtime). ),Jody Richardson is a talented youngster who fiddles and sings with old school charm and conviction way beyond her years.
THE DIRT FLOOR BAND
The Dirt Floor Band are 5 fellows from Mendocino who make a high-spirited brand of California gypsy bluegrass that appeals to dyed-in-the-wool Bill Monroe-loving traditionalists as well as dance-happy scene makers. On the surface the songs seem like up tempo hard-charging celebrations of everything carefree. Lyrically the songs aren't afraid to tackle a wide-range of emotions and the sides of the human condition. Dirt Floor Band songs aim to move you outside and in!
