The Hasslers • 4 - 6 pm
McDougall • 7- 10 pm
With his imagination often dwelling in the very real places of his past and present, as well as in the possible future, McDougall’s songs may very well seat you by a coffee-can fire in the middle of a dry California river-bed, pull you up onto a freight train in the lush spring-time of the Pacific northwest, raise your voice in hymns with the entire family on a Thanksgiving afternoon, or haste your good-bye to civilization as you know it, as you ramble on with all you possess on your back.
Fact, fiction, and a little in between, McDougall carries on the relevant tradition of oral history and folklore, making it a part of everyday life and sharing it with those around him. Inspired by the word of God, his family, friends, fellow workers and fellow travelers met along the way, McDougall wishes to keep to the unwritten rule of using what was left by those before while leaving something of your own for those who will come after.
The Hasslers are a five piece Folk-Rock/ Americana group from Missoula, Montana, currently based out of Seattle, WA. Since their formation in 2012, they've become known in the Northwest for their high-energy, air-tight performances, intricate instrumental arrangements, and catchy, yet powerful lyrics and vocal melodies. Built around Matt Hassler's songwriting, the group has become a staple of their genre, providing support for acts like Robert Earl Keen, Blitzen Trapper, the Cave Singers, the Heartless Bastards, Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, and many more.Horn players, weeping pedal steel, electrifying guitar solos and 3 part vocal harmonies abound. Genuine, hard-hittin', MT folk-rock, erudite pool-hall rock, doesn't matter what you call it, it's fun to watch and it's good to listen to. Northwest Music Scene of Seattle, WA writes:"If you hold strong, personal lyrics in high regard, but also like the sound of muscular folk and alt-country, The Hasslers aren’t to be skipped out on. We recommend picking up a copy of State Center and keeping it in steady rotation for a long, long time." Independent Clauses of Raleigh, North Carolina writes:"Even though the songwriting and instrumentals are brilliant, Matt Hassler’s vocal performances are even more stellar. He has the sort of lithe, evocative voice that can sell any line, whether it’s a wisecrack, a confession, or an observation."
There aren't many musical conglomerates that can boast like The Mighty Dreadful. Through hard work and determination, they have established themselves as one of Washington's most prolific and dynamic bluegrass groups. Founders Kelly and Clayton first crossed paths through craigslist and a mutual enthusiasm for all things country music. They immediately began hunting for gigs and other folks to play with. Their living-room recordings earned them a slot at the 2015 Northwest Folklife Festival, after which they were praised for their vocal harmonies and instrumental prowess. Their dedication to art landed them a premier spot at the Ocean Shores-based ABC Fest in February of 2016. March brought the inclusion of Andy Lowe and Nick Mclean on the upright bass and lead guitar, respectively. Both are longtime friends and troublemaking companions of Clay, and as such, a natural fit. The newly arranged stringband has since recorded eight original songs, and a variety of covers. When not in the studio, the Dreadful combine to form a musical juggernaut on stage, captivating audiences with strong vocal harmonies and self-deprecating humor.
