Sky In The Road

You could say it was love at first note. When Sky in the Road founding members Daniel Rhiger and Rahmana Wiest, both singers and musicians since childhood, met they were providing back-up vocals and instrumentation for another local singer/songwriter. It quickly became apparent that there was magic in this "harmonic convergence" and Dan and Rah, as they are known by their friends, soon became musical partners and eventually life partners.

Stark Raving Plaid

Stark Raving Plaid is the brainchild of John Moen, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, teacher, and all-around great guy.  The idea was to combine traditional Celtic music with modern-day ideas, all while keeping the tunes entertaining and upbeat.  The search began to find musicians that could handle such a task...

This resulted in combining the talents of Christopher Peck, an established mandolin, guitar, and brass player, Brysen Bristow, a self-acclaimed party animal, art lover and killer bassist, Alice Tilton, one of the most amazing fiddle players in town, and Stu Weitzman, formerly of The Ultimate Sellout Band playing the drums on this creative journey.

Gallowglass

On stage Friday, April 14 and Saturday April 15, 2017 

Music starts at 8pm.

Progressive Traditional Irish & Folk Music

Gallowglass is a lively four-piece band from Bellingham, WA, that plays reels, jigs, and songs rooted in the Irish tradition but     influenced by American sensibilities. You might also hear the odd Québécois fiddle tune, a stray Scottish tune, or possibly a Baltic sounding one from France. The repertoire is mostly traditional Irish music yet also diverse and on the progressive tip. Our instrumentation is consistent: Irish bouzoukis, mandolin, fiddle, harmonicas, bodhrán, and vocals. We sometimes feature a superb guest guitarist/whistler/mandolinist.

Music to dance to, and music to make you joyfully weep.

Music Starts @ 8pm.

I love playing and seeing the impact I have on people in my audience. In the USA, I watch people as they are transported to places I create by singing them songs from their forefathers, places and experiences they have heard of from their parents or grandparents. They still have an emotional bond to the “old country” where they have never lived, and a piece of their spirit still wants to connect them there. It’s wonderful to see.
