Polecat (Bellingham, WA.) are an Americana, “stomp-grass” band playing high energy bluegrass backed by frenetic and powerful drumming. Their unique instrumentation is comprised of Karl Olson (drums), Jeremy Elliott (electric guitar and vocals), Aaron Guest (vocals and 12 string guitar), Cayley Schmid (fiddle), and Richard Reeves (upright bass). This enables them to seamlessly blend genres including bluegrass, country, celtic, rock, and world music into their sound. It’s perfect music to welcome the summer by!
Renegade Stringband is a five-piece ensemble (sometimes six-piece when the wonderful fiddler, Ben Hunter, can join in) based in Portland, Oregon. The band formed in the summer of 2010, uniting around their love of danceable acoustic music and bluesy vocal harmonies. Original music forms the heart of their repertoire, but the band also interprets traditional tunes and the work great American songwriters such as Gillian Welch and Tom Waits. Whether you hear them in a street fair or a concert hall, Renegade Stringband will tickle your wits, soothe your soul, and get your money-maker shaking.
