Where to Buy
In 2010 Erik Killops returned to his hometown of Portland, Oregon after receiving his bachelors degree in Irish Music & Dance at the University of Limerick in Ireland. Shortly after he met recent New Jersey transplant, and bouzouki player, Richie Rosencrans and California native, and uilleann piper, Preston Howard at sessions around Portland. All three were eager to start a project and discovered common interests in regards to traditional music. After a few house gatherings, a weekly performance began at local watering hole the East Burn. In the fall of 2012 flute player Conor O'Bryan moved to Portland from Chico, California and immediately joined the ranks of the band.
In the Fall of 2014 Na Rósaí released their debut album featuring an eclectic mix of traditional Irish music, old time Appalachian tunes, and a set of Breton, and French tunes.
Na Rósaí's second album is currently is the works.
Cedar Teeth hails from the Cascade foothills, where the sound of saws cut through the Oregon woods and the lights of Portland set the western horizon aglow. The music of Cedar Teeth is shaped by the experience of living in this margin dividing the wilderness from the city. From the five members of the band emerges a fusion of guitars, banjo, keys and trombone, propelled by bass and drums, while vocal harmonies weave through the music. Their songs are thus sweeping and immersive, at turns rustically melodic, lyrically raw, and aggressive, as they explore the tensions of our time: love, loss, and destruction in a morally ambivalent landscape.
Over the past five years, Cedar Teeth has steadily crafted a distinct sound and set out to bring together audiences and fellow musicians from Portland to Seattle. Starting off 2015 with a series of shows in Park City, Utah during Sundance Film Festival, Cedar Teeth has gone on to perform at major venues throughout the Pacific Northwest, like Seattle's Tractor Tavern, as well as festival sets at Cascadia Rainingman and Summer Meltdown, alongside bands like Greensky Bluegrass and Fruition. Songs from their debut album, Hoot, have since been licensed for television programming on PBS and film soundtracks in America and Europe. Heading into 2016, Cedar Teeth will soon return to the studio and record their sophomore album before hitting the road, to bring their brand of NW roots rock to audiences far beyond the Cascade foothills from where their music is born.
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 Pearls are a fiery, nostalgic blend of original roots-rock, Americana, and Western swing, with a generous helping of sweet California harmonies. They hail from Vancouver, WA, and just released their debut album of all-original music, entitled "The Pearls".
The band has honed their punchy and rollicking live show during a slew of shows in towns large and small throughout NoCal, Oregon and Washington. They bring a good time, and a bit o' whiskey, to every gig.
The band is: Patrick Tetreault on acoustic guitar and vocals, Wayne "Buck" Ryan on bass and vocals, Nick O'Donnell on electric guitar, banjo and vocals, Robin Suskind on pedal steel, Joe Haegele on drums and Nikolette Divine on vocals.
Cul an ti (Gaelic for "The back of the House") has built a reputation as the Northwest's most exiting Irish band. Founding members Cary Novotny and Danny O'Hanlon have over the years forged a powerful and unique rhythm section that has rocked crowds while simultaneously supporting some of the best Irish musicians performing on the U.S. west coast.
The band features renowned Dublin button accordionist Johnny Connolly as well as the highly regarded Dave Cory on the tenor banjo together with Novotny and O'Hanlon on guitar/vocals and bass/percussion/vocals respectively.
Cul an ti's ability to play authentic traditional Irish music along with the added dynamic of being able to turn on a dime and delight crowds with a dizzying range of American pop and traditional Irish pub songs sets them apart from other bands. Fans of the band's particular style of groove oriented and highly energized Irish music have been raving about them ever since their first appearances in 1995 at Kells Irish pub and Biddy Mcgraws in Portland, Oregon.
The band has also performed at various McMenamins venues in Portland, Kells Seattle, Conor Byrne Seattle, 1995-2000 Salmon Festivals, the National Folk Alliance Convention, The Bite of Portland, The Portland Celtic Music Festival, the Salem Art Fair, Choochakam Festival of the arts in Langley, Washington, the Skamania Irish Festival, and the Highland Games.
Cul An Ti released its first self-titled CD in 1999, recorded live at the original Biddy McGraws.
Cul An Ti creates some of the most exciting and powerful Irish music for American audiences everywhere.
THE PLAYERSCary Novotny has toured and recorded with the internationally known band "The Bridies" featuring members of Michael Flatley's "The Lord of the Dance" as well as the band Bridgetown.
Johnny Connolly, a former member of the band Anam has released a critically acclaimed solo recording on Green Linnet records entitled "Bridgetown" that also features Novotny and Cory.
Dave Cory hails from the bay area and has played with many notable Irish artists across America including The Magic Square, Lisa Schnekenberger, & Bridgetown.
Danny O'Hanlon has played with many notable Irish musicians as well over the years and brings a wealth of experience from the pop world vis a vis his performing, producing, and recording various artist up and down the west coast.
Michael Berly, frontman for Portland roots-rock favorites The Old Yellers, has been playing music and working in the music scene in the Rose City and beyond for nearly a decade. His music is a blend of Americana, folk, bluegrass and singer/songwriter styles and has been featured on Berly's two CDs, one recorded here in Portland and other abroad when he lived in Ireland. Berly is a solid songwriter with a great singing voice and a palpable love of performing. In addition to playing with the Yellers, he is also a practicing Acupuncturist and professor at two different medical schools in town.
Winery Tasting Room
Irish harp, North Indian sarod, Greek bouzouki, Middle Eastern and African percussion, Irish and Appalachian fiddle, folk guitar and harmony vocals--no one has ever been able to reach a final tally on just how many instruments Elizabeth Nicholson and Bob Soper play, or how many cultures influence their music. Duo partners for seven years, they also share the dual role of fronting the critically acclaimed international roots quintet Stringed Migration. Their music has been hailed as "performed with the sort of resonance that separates masters from neophytes" (Jerome Clark, rambles.net, 2009), and has been featured on NPR's The Thistle and Shamrock, The Midnight Special, and hundreds of other radio programs worldwide.
Considered among the top American interpreters of Irish traditional music for harp, Elizabeth Nicholson's harp studies have also included classical, Paraguayan, and medieval music, and she has stretched the traditional boundaries of the instrument into rock music and country blues. Her 2006 CD of traditional and original music, Sink or Swim was released to widespread critical praise and international airplay, and was chosen "Folk Album of the Month" on Iowa Public Radio.
Bob Soper is counted among Portland's most astonishingly versatile multi-instrumentalists. A rock and jazz drummer from a young age who also studied classical Indian music at the Ali Akbar College, he went on to learn the Irish fiddle, ultimately becoming one the Northwest's most sought-after players. Also an accomplished guitarist, bouzouki player and vocalist, he's been a member of some of the region's most beloved and successful ensembles, including the Irish bands C'l an T' and Grafton Street, as well as the old-time/country-blues group The Pagan Jug Band.
Anchor & Reel is formed around two singers/multi-instrumentalists, Steve Dearborn and Dan Haley - both moonlighting in the Celtic music realm. Haley is known for his pop and folk sensibilities in acts like Ed & The Boats, Rainworms, Gravel and dozens of other projects. Dearborn also plays with the Americana-pop project Alexa Wiley & the Wilderness.
The pair perform jigs, reels and vocal music from the British Isles including sea shanties that invite audience participation. Haley explains: "Sea shanties were the ‘Top Ten' radio of the good old days - with great hooks (pun intended) and melodies that got folks dancing."
