About Halfway to St. Patrick's at Edgefield
OK, we know, it's kind of a wacky idea - no one celebrates halfway to St. Valentine's Day, right? (Although, now that we think about it... nahhh...)
But, regardless, we love St. Patrick's Day and we love being halfway to it! So let's have some drinks, hear some music and have a full-on good time together. Because why not?
** Food & Drink Specials **
plus Irish-tinged revelry at all of our joints!

About Shook Twins
"A unique, personal music that lights up the stage with its joy and enthusiasm." Mason Jennings
Identical twins Laurie Shook (vocals, banjo, percussion and beatboxing) and Katelyn Shook (vocals, guitar and mandolin), are two thirds of the quirky folk trio, Shook Twins. Rounding out the trio, often referred to as the "third twin," is Kyle Volkman on bass. The Shook Twins intertwine gorgeous "twin" harmonies with an eclectic and eccentric blend of folk, roots, pop and fun. Jeff Rosenberg of the Willamette Week says, "Their songs are witty and well-built, the performances poised, the production adventurous. Recently transplanted to Portland, Shook Twins are the most exciting local folk act I've heard in ages. Strike that word 'local' and the sentiment still stands."
Originally from Sandpoint Idaho, the twins have been making music together since childhood. Playful, warm and lighthearted, a Shook Twins show percolates with the twin's infectious radiant energy. Pristine vocals layered on top of traditional stringed folk instruments, create lovely aural imagery of two women with one sound.
But don't be fooled. The Shook Twins are not your average folk trio. They have a few tricks up their sleeves. Laurie may drop a beat-box in the middle of a song, while Katelyn plays the guitar, glockenspiel, mandolin, and sings into a telephone and bocks like a chicken. Laurie plays wah-wah Banjo and loops various melodies and beats to make it sound like more than just two identical twin sisters. Meanwhile Kyle lays down the groove adding resonant bass lines to the mix. It's a refreshing romp filled with unexpected surprises.
This past year the Shook Twins have been touring behind their sophomore CD Window, released in April 2011, taking them throughout much of the Northwest. Along the way, The Shook Twins have shared the stage with artists including Ryan Adams, Mason Jennings, Laura Veirs, Carolina Chocolate Drops, The Fruit Bats, Michelle Shocked, JJ Gray and MoFro, Crooked Still, Jason Webley, The Head and The Heart and many more.
