Foghorn String Band

Ass Kickin’ Old-Time Stringband Music

Buy Tickets…

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.

Sylvia Herold – CANCELLED

Vintage Songs and a Voice That Sparkles

***We are sorry to say Sylvia Herold’s show has been cancelled due to illness.***

Singer, guitarist, and song sleuth Sylvia Herold masterfully mines the motherlode of American jazz and popular song from the 1930s through the 1960s. Songs of wit and romance by composers Cole Porter, Hoagy Carmichael, George Gershwin, and Harold Arlen are lovingly rendered in a voice the San Francisco Examiner calls “mesmerizing.” Herold was a member of the swing vocal trio Cats & Jammers and played extensively with The Hot Club of San Francisco. Currently, she tours and records with Wake the Dead, Sylvia Herold and the Rhythm Bugs, and Euphonia, as well as The Sylvia Herold Ensemble. She has appeared on more than 25 albums, including five solo recordings. Herold is a resident teacher at the Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse in Berkeley, Calif., and has also taught at Puget Sound Guitar Workshop, California Coast Music Camp, Port Townsend Voice Works, and British Columbia Swing Camp. Chuck Ervin joins her on bowed and plucked upright bass.

“Sylvia Herold is one of those gifted musicians who has it all. Exceptional guitar playing, amazingly beautiful vocal chops, and the musical knowledge to back it all up. I love her music and musicianship.”  —Jim Nunally, musician/producer

Mollie O’Brien & Rich Moore

Wednesday, Feb 25, 2015 — 7:30 p.m.

Limitless vocal range and poignant guitar harmonies

Buy Tickets…

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.
