About Cavort

Cavort

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.

About The Pine Hearts

The Pine Hearts

The Pine Hearts are totally rad! They're one of the best new bands on the scene. The singing, picking and songwriting is fabtastic and organic. Two thumbs up!" -- Charles Humphrey III (Songs From The Road Band) Just beneath the eaves of Washington's Cascade Mountains, The Pine Hearts are combining wood, ore and soul to channel the colossal, organic spirit of the untamed Pacific Northwest. Their sound, like the environment around them, is ever-changing, harnessing classic country songwriting, the powerful emotive themes of experimental folk, and the blazing-fast pickin' rhythms of traditional Appalachian bluegrass -- all the while staying rooted to their rock-n-roll backgrounds. "A catchy, peppy mixture of folk, indie and jamgrass" -- Bluegrass Today The Pine Hearts first formed in the early 2010's as a traditional-leaning folk and bluegrass trio, establishing bandleader and guitarist Joey Capoccia's distinct picking flair and alt-Americana songwriting style after long-running stints in classic Olympia, WA bands such as The Pasties and The Blackberry Bushes, culminating in the albums Distant Lights (2013) and Winter on Orcas (2013). In the fall of 2015 came their successive album, Thin Walls (2015), which took a decidedly more country bent, enlisting a wider variety of instruments while honing their roster of dense, powerful tunes, imbued with themes of love and of loss. In 2016, two permanent members joined the fold ~ fast-picking mandolinist Derek McSwain (formerly of the trad-bluegrass powerhouse The Oly Mountain Boys) and genre-defying upright bassist Dean Shakked. All three are accomplished vocalists in their own rights, allowing for lush, complex three-part vocal harmony to give new depth and dimension to the band's lyrical melodies. 2018 saw the release of Carousel, a return to classic Nashville bluegrass sensibilities, followed shortly after by 2019's Back To Sustain, a live album recorded direct to tape inside an old grange hall on the outskirts of Olympia, which featured rerecorded and stripped-down versions of the band's favorite original tunes. Looming on the horizon is 2022's upcoming release Lost Love Songs, the most mature and fully-developed album of The Pine Hearts' career, featuring a more deliberate and polished sound to complement their finest collection of songs yet. "A tight folk/bluegrass band that wears its punk roots on its sleeves" -- Antiquated Furniture Filled with a vigorous dedication, The Pine Hearts are aiming to show listeners the true spirit of the Northwest, as lived through each of them, telling stories of pain and growth to inspire audiences everywhere. Catch them at a performance near you and get a taste for yourself! "... Particularly upbeat original tunes that are instant classics, The Pine Hearts sing with sincerity and pick with deliberate dedication." -- Anacortes Magazine
