Event

Bellingham Irish Festival - Saturday Afternoon Concert
Biddy on the Bench

The versatile combination of banjo, guitar, mandolin, tin whistle and four part vocal harmony lends itself equally to high-energy Irish rebel songs and shanties, lively session tunes, and mournful gaelic ballads. Grounded primarily in the folk/traditional style of Irish music pioneered by such bands as "The Dubliners", "Planxty", and "The Bothy Band", Portland's own "Biddy on the Bench" breathes life and authenticity into old standbys of the genre and lesser-known tunes alike.

In the winter months of 2013, Biddy on the Bench was formed. The members include Kevin Grgurich, Nick Frey, Noah Cotter, Casey Dyer, Tristan Cormack, and Trevor Cormack. Hailing from Cleveland, Ohio, Kevin, Nick, Tristan, and Trevor have been playing music together for close to a decade. Noah and Casey are Oregon natives and bring with them years of experience with Irish music. Together, Biddy on the Bench approaches each song, each melody, with a passion for the music and sharing it with others.


Sean Connors & Sam Vogt

Sean Connors is an Irish fiddle player from Southern Oregon. He started making music when he was eight years old and has been playing traditional music ever since. Besides his love for local jam sessions, he has played at the Northwest Folklife Festival countless times, the Bellingham Folk Festival, and many other venues across the West Coast.

Sam Vogt, a Bellingham local, has been guitar-ing his way through a variety of genres of music for many years. He can be found playing with local pan-Celtic supergroup, Giant's Causeway, the innovative fiddle and guitar duo, Reed & Vogt, and many more.
