Cascade Crescendo
Cascade Crescendo
Cascade Crescendo, from Portland, Oregon has been crafting their own brand of bluegrass since 2013. Pulling from their vast range of collective influences, they play original, high-energy bluegrass, jamgrass, and Americana music with captivating lead vocals by Hunter White, blazing fast mandolin licks by Aden Beck, and creative, thumping bass lines by Taylor Skiles. Duluth, MN banjo player, Harrison Olk, joined the band in late 2015, bringing with him solid Scruggs-style banjo and high lonesome harmony vocals.
Stringdingers
Stringdingers
A fresh, dynamic string band forged in the white-hot fires of the Minneapolis live music scene, Stringdingers draw inspiration from a wide array of artists and genres to craft the signature blend of bluegrass, country, and funky jam improvisation that distinguishes their sound. Each of the band’s songwriters evokes meditations on heartbreak, vengeance, fine Brazilian dining, and other key facets of the human experience through lyrics that at once recall the playfulness of John Hartford, the tenderness of Peter Rowan, and the habitual drunkenness of Hank Williams.
Trevor James Americana Rebel
Trevor James Americana Rebel
Pulling the roots of country music then mixing punk, rockabilly,bluegrass and New Americana together creating a familiar but unique sound. It holds the high lonesome sound we've heard from Hank and Cash but with a nitty gritty edge. Singer/songwriter Trevor James holds no shame for what he says in his songs. He tells it the way it is. Raised in Minnesota but born in Florida he holds southern charm and Midwest nice with open arms. Thanks to his mother Linnea Marrin who was the church music director, Trevor was surrounded by music at an early age. Eventually he would make his own tunes with his own lyrics. Trevor's songs hold nothing back from life experiences. He sings from the heart be it love lost or love gained, regret and the good times. He finds the upside to remind us that the sun still shines. He takes country routes and crosses the road creating an edge to his sound which makes him an Americana Rebel.
