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.

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.

The group consistently brings a soulful and energetic performance to the stage, every lyric sung with passion and authenticity.

The group tours heavily in the western region, working tirelessly to build their brand and expand their audience. The band is currently in the studio working on a self-produced EP showcasing their new sound. The music of The Hawthorne Roots comes straight from the heart. Stay tuned and keep in touch."

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.
Sky in the Road creates music with an organic feel that reflects their unique native Oregonian perspective. Sky in the Road is the performing name of singer/songwriter duo Daniel Rhiger and Rahmana Wiest. Their musical collaboration spans two decades.

Sky in the Road has released several CDs including, "Time Travels", "Celtic Gypsy", "Where Everything is Music" and their 1996 debut, "Sky in the Road".They have toured nationally and have been heard at numerous concert halls, conferences, coffee houses and festivals including Winterfolk, Portland's Rose Festival, Artquake, The Bite, Seattle Folk Life, and many more. Their recordings have received airplay in major markets such as Boston, San Francisco and Portland and on numerous college radio stations nationwide. They have been featured on the nationally syndicated radio show River City Folk three times since 2001.

Yeates and Larson:
Peter Yeates (guitar, lead and
backing vocals) is a veteran singer/songwriter/guitarist from Dublin, Ireland.
He has taken his early rock roots and combined them with his Celtic influences
to create a hard-driving yet soulful sound. Peter has toured much of the world
as a solo act and also with various Irish musicians, including James Kelly
(Planxty, Patrick Street), Noel Hill (Planxty), Tommy Hayes (Stockton's Wing)
and accordion player Paddy O'Brian.
Ken Larson (bodhrán, lead and
backing vocals) originally from Minneapolis, MN, has developed an inventive and
unique style in his three decades of playing bodhrán. He pulls an amazing range
of sounds from the simple Irish drum. He has toured the US with Peter Yeates,
in the two decades of collaboration, and has also performed and recorded with
some of the premier Celtic groups in the Portland area.
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."
