Ass Kickin’ Old-Time Stringband Music
Credited with igniting the old-time music revival in the Northwest, Portland’s Foghorn Stringband is a shining example of the potential for American Roots music to reach modern audiences. Crowded around one microphone, the band’s high lonesome harmonies, lightning fast mandolin licks, spirited guitar fills, and plunking bass lines offer an authentic glimpse into the past, energetically filtered through the sensibilities of the present.
Foghorn Stringband, consisting of Caleb Klauder (mandolin, fiddle, vocals), Stephen Lind (Fiddle, Banjo), Nadine Landry (Bass), and Reeb Willms (guitar) should be well known to attendees of last year’s Fiddle Tunes festival as they offered one of the hottest sets of the Fourth of July weekend. Don’t miss them at Key City Public Theatre on Thursday, February 12th.

Multi-genre songstress with Irish roots
Sylvia Herold’s discovery of traditional Irish/British music started her on a long and fruitful journey through a wealth of musical traditions around the world. Although her recordings span folk, swing, pop, and Celtic genres, Sylvia’s distinct voice and identifiable style is never lost in the shuffle. Of her omnivorous approach to adapting material for performance, Sylvia says “Songs are intriguing packages to be learned and sung. I find endless pleasure in examining them from different angles searching for hidden treasures.”
Sylvia has played and toured with numerous bands, including The Hot Club of San Francisco, which has entertained audiences for decades with their faithful rendering of Django-era gypsy Jazz, and Wake the Dead, which has garnered high acclaim for its innovate intermingling of Celtic music with the songs of the Grateful Dead. In addition, she has released four solo albums and appeared on over 25 albums alongside artists like Kathy Kallick, Tom Rozum, and Laurie Lewis. Sylvia will be performing at Key City Public Theatre on Friday, Febrary 20th.
Mollie O'Brian & Rich Moore
Wednesday, Feb 25, 2015 -- 8:00pm
Limitless vocal range and poignant guitar harmonies
One voice and one guitar. That’s all it takes for Grammy Award-Winner Mollie O’Brien and her husband Rich Moore to deliver their soul-satisfying brand of Americana-Folk. Through the intimacy of this sparse arrangement, Mollie’s powerful inflections, phrasings, and nuances shine clear as Rich’s articulate guitar fills and interludes provide poignant counterpoint.
Of their most recent release, Love Runner, Gretchen Peters from Songwriter Magazine says, “One part Maria Muldaur, one part Suzy Bogguss & one part Ella Fitzgerald, Mollie O’Brien’s voice with its seemingly limitless range is the perfect vehicle for this eclectic set of songs. It takes serious talent to play and sing this effortlessly.” That effortlessness undoubtedly results from Mollie’s extensive, 20+ years musical career in which she has perfomed with a plethora of different artists, including Chris Thile, Jerry Douglas, Todd Phillips, Sally Van Meter, Nina Gerber, Pete Wernick, and, of course, her brother Tim O’Brien. Mollie and Rich will be performing at Key City Public Theatre on Wednesday, February 25th.
