FOGHORN STRINGBAND in Los Angeles!!!
The Old-Time Tiki Parlour is proud to present the Los Angeles return of one of the greatest modern old-time string bands ever!

The Foghorn Stringband is the present day shining gold standard for American string band music, with eight albums, thousands of shows, over a decade of touring under their belts, and an entirely new generation of old-time musicians following their lead. Theyve been steadily proving that American roots music is a never-ending well of inspiration.

The music of The Foghorn Stringband revolves around four master musicians: Portland, Oregon-based Caleb Klauder (vocals, mandolin, fiddle) and Reeb Willms (vocals, guitar), and Yukon-based Nadine Landry (vocals, upright bass) and Stephen Sammy Lind (vocals, fiddle, banjo). Each member of The Foghorn Stringband comes not only from a different part of the American roots music spectrum, but leads the pack in their field as well. Caleb Klauders wistful, keening vocals and rapid-fire mandolin picking are as influenced by Southern roots music as much as by his upbringing in Washington State. Also from Washington, Reeb Willms grew up in the states Eastern farmlands singing hard-bitten honky-tonk with her family. Nadine Landrys roots lie in the rural backroads of Acadian Qu├ębec, but she cut her teeth as one of the best bluegrass bassists in Western Canada. Minnesotan Stephen Sammy Lind, simply put, is one of the best old-time fiddlers of his generation and has a voice that sounds like its coming from an old 78.

Onstage, The Foghorn Stringband gather around one microphone, balancing their music on the fly, and playing with an intense, fiery abandon.

To Foghorn, this music is as relevant today as it was a century ago. They see themselves not as revivalists, but as curators and ardent fans, and their music is a celebration of these roots. From their origins in Portland Oregons underground roots music scene in the late 90s and early 00s, when members of todays hot bands like The Decemberists and Blind Pilot were gathering to explore the roots of American folk music, The Foghorn Stringband have spread the old-time string band gospel all over the world. Along the way, theyve brought in influences and inspirations from their many travels and late-night jam sessions. Old-time square dance tunes now rub shoulders with Cajun waltzes, vintage honky-tonk songs, and pre-bluegrass picking. This is the kind of bubbling musical brew which first intoxicated the American mainstream in the day.
