Foghorn Stringband

Ass Kickin' Redneck Stringband Music The sound of the Portland, Oregon's Foghorn Stringband could have come barreling through the grille-cloth of those big console radios in the living rooms of the 1950's, when the traditional sounds of rural America were still on the minds of young musicians transferring the old-time music to a distinctively modern age. Their tight instrumental work is reminiscent of early bluegrass, but their powerful approach is whole-heartedly authentic old-time.  While the members of Foghorn Stringband are not strict recreationists in costume; yet neither are they experimentalists of the digital age. Whether it's on stage in a rock venue, a bluegrass festival, or at a dance in the Grange Hall, they further this great tradition through a profound belief that old-time music, played in a traditional way, is still relevant and very much alive in the 21st century.

JD & DV mix together tunes from old-time, contra-dance, and classical traditions, adorned with twists and turns both modern and elegant.  After overhearing their late-night picking, we drafted them to fill a snowed-out empty showcase slot last year.  We are thrilled to have them back.

Bob & Dave

These two old friends say "We want to keep whatever tune we are playing as original as we can... as the old saying goes, be yourself because everyone else is taken. Whatever song we are playing is the song we love playing... everything from fiddle tunes to contemporary acoustic music." Bob Ray (Guitar)  Dave Arnold (Guitar/Mandolin)

These Berklee College of Music students and OctoPladd members are each accomplished instrumentalists in their own right, but together create a progressive bluegrass ensemble sound bigger than the sum of the parts - perhaps in an ideal world, all the band members would be wearing two plaid shirts at the same time - OctoPladd!
