About Biddy on the Bench

High-energy Irish rebel

Biddy on the Bench

The versatile combination of banjo, guitar, mandolin, tin whistle and four part vocal harmony lendsitself equally to high-energy Irish rebel songs and shanties, lively session tunes, and mournful gaelicballads. Grounded primarily in the folk/traditional style of Irish music pioneered by such bands as "The Dubliners", "Planxty", and "The Bothy Band", Portland's own "Biddy on the Bench" breathes lifeand authenticity into old standbys of the genre and lesser-known tunes alike.In the winter months of 2013, Biddy on the Bench was formed. The members include KevinGrgurich, Nick Frey, Noah Cotter, Casey Dyer, Tristan Cormack, and Trevor Cormack. Hailing fromCleveland, Ohio, Kevin, Nick, Tristan, and Trevor have been playing music together for close to adecade. Noah and Casey are Oregon natives and bring with them years of experience with Irishmusic. Together, Biddy on the Bench approaches each song, each melody, with a passion for themusic and sharing it with others. 

About Jacob Westfall

Indie singer-songwriter

Jacob Westfall

“People don’t come to hear you. They come to feel you”

Originally from Nashville, Jacob Westfall is a young veteran of the Portland music scene; often seen onstage with a family of collaborators and musicians of his adoptive hometown community. When onstage he shares his story through genuine songwriting, powerhouse vocals, and pristine arrangements – regaling his tales of travels, love, and growth through a tradition of alternative soundscapes, rock & roll attitude, and folk authenticity in a pop-style package.

After appearances on shows like NBC’s The Voice (S12) and ABC’s American Idol (S1) Jacob released his first record, Where We Are in November, 2018. Known as one of Portland’s hardest working musicians, he has gained recognition as one of the Pacific Northwest's fastest growing singer-songwriters and can be seen performing regularly at festivals throughout the area. Jacob is currently creating a new record that will be ready for fans in 2020. The songwriting is honest, imperfect, beautiful, impactful, and authentic. It tells of his journeys and lessons in love, goodbyes, new friendships, and serial optimism. Jacob Westfall is an experience you will not want to miss.

Always Writing, Always Creating
