Jump at the Sun is an infectiously joyful and enchanting chamber folk quartet that plays mostly old dance tunes and songs from American, Celtic, Canadian, Argentinian and other International sources.
The Stomptowners is a rare experience blending dynamic traditional Irish music with voice and hot Irish dance. This four piece puts together Uilleann Pipes, Irish bouzouki, fiddle, whistles, breathtaking vocals and driven foot percussion. The tradition comes to life with the all energy today's audience craves.
It is often said about The Stomptowners is that there is something for everyone. A typical performance includes smoking hot Irish and Scottish tunes, choreographed Irish dance, voice with foot percussion, arranged songs as well as evocative a cappella pieces. The Stomptowners repertoire is always kept fresh, alive and relevant to the season. And space permitting, this band will bring the dance floor to capacity with guided Ceili and folk dances.
At the core of The Stomptowners is vocalist Andrea Wild, Uilleann Pipe player, Preston Howard, Irish Bouzouki player, Richie Rosencrans and dancer Kelsey Wilson.In addition, The Stomptowners round out their performances on an as needed basis with guest musicians. Pub shows and ceilis have boosted energy with guest drummer, Don Viramontes. Other top notch musicians who add to the line-up are multi-instrumentalist, Bob Soper and Sean-nos dancer and singer, Brian O'Hairt.
Born in Liverpool, England, Andrea grew up with the sibling singing tradition emphasizing harmony and a capella performance. Andrea's mother was from Caernarfon, Wales so Andrea grew up in a Welsh speaking household hearing traditional, Welsh songs during childhood. Andrea and her brother Straford began singing in folk clubs throughout the North of England and Andrea was a regular at Liverpool's Irish Centre. Their love of traditional folk music and a quest for adventure brought them to the US where they collaborated with Oregon Symphony cellist Jim Smith and performed at festivals throughout the US as Both Wild. They released a CD recording in 2002 entitled Just Say Nevoth.
In 2011, Andrea teamed up with Sean Nos dancer, Maldon Meehan with a goal to merge traditional forms of percussive dance with song for stage performance. And thus was the birth of The Stomptowners, a project that continues to grow and please crowds from Portland to beyond.
Preston grew up in Northern California where he first heard Irish traditional music in the form of a Finbar Furey recording belonging to his father. This recording sparked Preston's deep interest in the uilleann pipes. After several years playing whistle, flute, and Scottish bagpipes as a child, Preston began learning the uilleann pipes at age 17 with the help of many kind traveling pipers as well as the Pub Scouts, the local Irish music collective in Chico, CA. Preston now resides in Portland, Oregon where he frequently plays at regional ceilis, Sean-nós Northwest workshops and events, local sessions, and performances.
Richie Rosencrans (bouzouki/guitars/vocals) has been performing from an early age. A self-taught guitarist and songwriter, Richie found his way to Traditional Irish music while studying Civil Engineering at the University of New Hampshire. His love of music and outdoor adventure attracted him to the Northwest four years ago and when not on the trail, you'll find him performing weekly inPortland. His accompaniment style is highlighted by a sympathetic ear toward the tunes with open lifting chords and playful countermelodies.
Kelsey hails from a small Northern California town. Her love for movement to music began with dancing to her father's records, and in ballet lessons encouraged by her mother. Her dance journey has led her to various styles, such as ballet, modern, jazz, tap, and African. Her first Irish dance steps were learned from Maria Oliver in Chico, CA. She went on to compete in regional, national and world Irish dance competitions, under the instruction of Kathleen Deely Braten, Kathleen Maeve-Smith, and Patricia Kennelly. Whilst completing her B.A. in Theatre Arts at CSU Chico, she first learned sean-nós dance from Maldon Meehan at Lark Camp in Mendocino, CA. Spellbound and inspired by the dance's integral relationship with music, culture and community, she has since studied with Nic Gareiss, Siobhán Butler, Alicia Guinn and Ben Power.Throughout the journey, she's enjoyed the delight of dancing with a variety of players, such as The Pub Scouts, Dervish, Men of Worth, Kevin Carr, Molly's Revenge, Na Rósaí, and more. Kelsey currently performs, choreographs and arranges dances with the Stomptowners in Portland, OR.
Portland, OR based "Castletown" has a sound best described as "Energetic Celtic Folk Rock," blending the heart and soul of traditional Irish reels with modern folk, blues, jazz and country influences with Robert Richter on guitar and vocals, Katie Lubiens on fiddle, Casey McBride on drums and percussion and Willi Jaam on bass. Their new CD "In Reel Time" was released in early 2016.

They have also toured California and Arizona.
Native Portlander Richter began teaching himself guitar at the age of 12 when he purchased a Sears "Silvertone" guitar from a neighbor for $5 and the promise to mow his lawn for a month. Over the years Richter has become known as a versatile singer/songwriter and guitarist writing the original Celtic influenced songs appearing on Castletown's CD.
Katie Lubiens originally from the San Francisco Bay Area is a talented fiddler and graduated from the University of Nevada Reno after attending on a music scholarship. She is a creative player noted for her passionate and energetic style.

Cedar Teeth didn't plan to start a band around the campfires
that lit up their Oregon youths in the forests of the Cascade foothills that
form a clear-cut divide between Portland and the surrounding wilderness. The genre bending roots troupe owe their
inception to bassist Rayson Gordon, who forged a musical link between friends
and provided their secret headquarters: a cedar shed on his grandparents' 40
acre forestland on Green Mountain Road. In their new practice space, campfire
tunes turned into intricate songwriting and friendships became a partnership.
Following their 2014 debut album, Hoot, Cedar Teeth built
their reputation on stage, whether at festivals like Summer Meltdown and
Wildwood, or at clubs throughout the Pacific NW, where they have joined bands
like Fruition, Shook Twins, Motopony, Hot Buttered Rum, and Magic Giant.
On their 2017 EP, Farewell To Green Mountain, Cedar Teeth
explore everything from indie rock and grunge to psych folk and bluegrass,
reflecting the diversity inspired by their lives on the dividing line of
societal opposites. Produced by Larry
Crane (Elliot Smith, The Decemberists), the EP leans heavily on backwood
harmony, allowing complex song structures and off-kilter melodies to support
tales of love and war and the moments in between. In one sense, Farewell to
Green Mountain is a goodbye to both their formative practice space and the
vanishing wilderness and community they knew growing up; a sense of loss that
makes its way into songs such as "Cancer" and "Mama's Mourning". But then again, a voice of defiance emerges
in songs like "Winter" and "Echoes Grounding", testaments to renewal and
resilience in the face of the dying light.
While their range of sonic interests and influences defy
easy classification, it is difficult not to hear Levon Helm, Rick Danko and
company, The Band, hollering from the grave. Indeed, imagery reflecting organic
flesh and bone, mingling with gnarled old-growth roots music, is what this band
is all about. Call 'em whatever you
like: they are harmonizers and collaborators and Cedar Teeth won't let the fire
Drawing heavily from North Mississippi trance blues, a bit from Appalachia and taking their unstoppable energy from rockabilly, this Portland duo balances a makeshift drumkit of buckets, cans and BBQ lids with some rambunctious slide guitar. Think old timey blues filtered through hops and the Ramones!
Whether arranging traditionals, classics, or deceptively stark original songs, Hillstomp has duct-taped together a distinctive sound that has quickly made them favorites up and down the West coast. Their third and latest release, After Two But Before Five, is a live album, showcasing the electricity of a Hillstomp peformance while introducing new songs in their growing reportoire of "Bucket ‘n Slide Rock ‘n Roll."
"Even for blues nuts, Hillstomp doesn't sound like anything that's come before it. While Johnson bangs out clanking beats on his modified kit.... Kammerer slips and slides around his guitar like a kid on a waterslide. Melodies zip and splash about. Mammoth grooves seemingly appear out of nowhere. It's all primitive and natural, like it sprung up from the ground." - Jeff Inman, Las Vegas City Life
