BarnMcDougall • 3 - 6 pm
The Strange Tones • 7 - 10 pm
The wildly entertaining Strange Tones have blended a unique concoction of original blues, rockabilly, surf, and vintage R&B, and finished it off with a private eye twist. They've shaken and stirred these elements into their own original sound and style known as Crime-A-Billy. Well-crafted songwriting, top notch musicianship, and a playful, engaging stage show have contributed to the band's induction into the Hall of Fame (Cascade Blues Association), and a multitude of awards for "Best Contemporary Blues Act", "Best Electric Guitar", "Best Northwest Recording", and "Best Vocals".
Led by the husband-and-wife team of Guitar Julie & bassist Andy Strange, and fortified by longtime partners guitarist Suburban Slim and drummer Andy Gauthier, this group forms "... one of Portland's most original and accomplished bands." - Oregonian
"....this too-cool-for-school quartet are a guaranteed good time, mixing sizzling surf, righteous rockabilly and secret-agent-man sang froid. There are zillions of bands in this naked city, but very few sound as good as the Strange Tones over a pitcher of beer and a greasy cheeseburger." - Portland Monthly Magazine
"If surf guitar god Dick Dale found himself in Bogie's Maltese Falcon film-noir underworld, and drank beer at the seedy bar with bluesmen Jimmy Reed and Magic Sam, the resulting soundtrack might be exactly what the Strange Tones purvey." - Oregonian
"With the exception of the grunge movement, some people don't realize what a fertile breeding ground the northwest was and still is for great talent, sprouting such artists as Heart, The Wailers, The Sonics and Paul Revere and the Raiders, not to mention Jimi Hendrix. Well, you can count on The Strange Tones to keep the northwest's rep solid." - Elmore Magazine
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.
