About Oompah Machine

Oompah music

Oompah Machine

The Oompah Machine was formed in the wake of a disastrous flood that saw both an accordion and a tuba washed up onto the lawn. We put off learning how to play as long as we could. But the tuba only has three buttons, so how hard can it be, really? Same with that other horn the lady plays - is there a name for that thing? It's not a trombone, right? Turns out you can fake playing accordion pretty convincingly by watching videos online. You just, like, squeeze it in and move your hand back and forth on the keyboard looking part, and then sorta un-squeeze it back out.

So now we tour extensively, stumbling our way through beer halls and beer tents and biergartens all around this great land. Audiences are reliably drunk, so no one seems to notice we're no good, and we never have to ask for a recommendation letter. What's not to love? If it all comes crashing down around us some day, well, it's been a great ride. Meantime, can I use 2 drink tickets for a pitcher? Prost!

About Cavort Fiddle & Guitar

Cavort Fiddle & Guitar

Guitarist Clint Dye is a fairly recent addition to the Seattle Irish music community. His great musicality, rhythm, and style have made him very welcome in sessions and concerts around the Northwest. Clint got his start playing traditional Irish music by accompanying step dancers and singers in the Busch Gardens show Celtic Fyre in Williamsburg, VA. During this time, he began to cut his teeth in Irish music sessions and work in small groups. He has appeared at numerous festivals and events on the east coast and since relocating to Seattle has worked with several local bands.

Fiddler, composer and multi-instrumentalist Ryan Farris has been performing traditional Irish music since he was a teenager growing up in the mountains of central Colorado. Ryan moved to Seattle in 2017 to study at the University of Washington and has been a familiar face in the local music community ever since. Ryan has recorded several albums with groups in both Colorado and Washington, and he recently released his first solo album 'Healing' as a musical response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
