The Harmonica Pocket is all about swinging acoustic songs sprinkled with hulahoop & dance. They perform in theaters, libraries, schools, parks, and festivals. They sing about bugs, vegetables, & diapers, love Dr. Seuss, & eat a lot of ice cream. Featuring imaginative renditions of American folk classics plus an array of silly, sweet originals from their award-winning albums, Harmonica Pocket performances mix music and dance into a giggle-inducing show that gets audiences singing and moving in their seats. The acoustic story-songs are sprinkled with ukuleles, wah-wah guitar and vocal harmony.
Blue Sol is the local folk music duo of Jamey and Dave Campbell. With two guitars and lots of harmony, they bring you a combination of original songs and a variety of cover tunes. They have been making music, along with a marriage and two sweet kids, together for 15 years and have produced four CD's. They are currently in the studio working on the next Blue Sol recording. Their CD "Rolling" features exclusively lullabies and children's songs, telling tales of sailors, rickshaw taxis, and dreams.
As a musician and storyteller, Aimée Ringle delights in catching, carrying and sharing tales and songs from ancient and present times that are longing for willing hearts and imaginations to breathe new life into them! She comes to Finnriver Farm with a smattering of old and new stories (with mice that jump, invisible trees, and mountains so big they blot out the sun) that celebrate the human communion with place, and the trees, hills, rivers and stars that tell us we're "home".
Harper Stone grew up in the mountains of Colorado, where his parents regularly subjected him to myths, folktales, banjo music, Icelandic sagas, and other archetypically-infused forms of punishment. He rebelled first by going to art school in Santa Fe, then by making a pilgrimage to Ireland in search of long-lost relatives in the Leprechaun family. However, eventually he acquiesced to his upbringing, and now spends his time as a musician, storyteller, painter, in Bellingham. Summers find him working as a 'Quest Leader', leading groups of children on imaginary adventures, and engaging them with interactive stories, riddles, puzzles, and foam-sword battles. His stories dance between the deep waters of tradition and the improvised fancy of the present moment.
SLI NA BANDE:
Sli Na Bande is a Celtic music ensemble based in Bellingham, WA. Together they bring a vast collection of folk and dance tunes to life on a variety of instruments including bodhran, fiddle, harp, bozouki, mandolin, guitar, penny whistle, and more!
