Polecat
Polecat
Formed in Bellingham, Washington in March 2010, Polecat has quickly established itself in the Northwest, with two records and over 200 shows in two years. Their unique instrumentation is comprised of Karl Olson (drums), Jeremy Elliott (electric guitar and vocals), Aaron Guest (vocals and 12 string guitar), Cayley Schmid (fiddle), and Richard Reeves (upright bass). This enables them to seamlessly blend genres including bluegrass, country, celtic, rock, and world music into their sound. "The core audience of Polecat is, well, everybody. There is a sense of mass appeal attached to Polecat for it's unique take on bluegrass, as well as an acknowledged respect for their honest approach to their genre" (H. Nightbert, What's Up! Magazine, June 2010)

Aside from their self-titled E.P. and full length album 'Fire on the Hill', one of the best aspects of Polecat is their live show. Their music celebrates life, love, and good times, and it reflects on the faces of the players and their audience. Polecat has shared the stage with several nationally acclaimed acts, including The Infamous Stringdusters, The Hackensaw Boys, The Moondoogies, and Trampled by Turtles.
Lonesome Locomotive
Lonesome Locomotive
Joining them on the 28th will be multi-instrumentalist Jeff Hobbs, bassist Marc Friedman, and Jordan Feinstein on Hammond organ!

Lonesome Locomotive is driven by remarkable songs that cut across genres and pull on many different emotional strings to create a sound that is layered, direct, and poignant. The music has a feeling of being instantly classic, fresh and danceable all at once. LL steams into jams, but is not a jam band. Their improvisations benefit from the superb musicianship of lead guitarist Brian Byrnes and bass master Mike Meagher, and are hoisted up by the driving rhythms of drummer Erin Cassidy and guitarist Michael Rosen. Together they achieve a sound that is stripped down, yet rich and strong.
