Sam Shackleton

w/ Oisín Moore & Nick hans

 

SAM SHACKLETON also known by his Gaelic moniker, Sorley the Bard, is a Scottish singer-songwriter and folk artist. His music is greatly inspired by the rich inter-connected musical and oral traditions of Scotland, Ireland, and the United States. Strongly influenced by the 1960’s folk revival, his unique sound is a mix of country, old-time, folk, and blues, with a Scottish spirit.

Oisín Moore (Oissh) is a 24 years old singer/songwriter.From a small village in Ireland called Newbliss music was and is a big part of his life and tradition. “Where I come from I love to express my true feelings and story’s through music, music is an healthy outlet I love to entertain and give people a good laugh. I do have a strong Irish humor and an accent that might not be understood 😂 but I will put on a great show”

NICK HANS writes songs drawing primarily from his own life – sometimes dark, sometimes beautiful. He left Tennessee in his late teens and began crisscrossing the country by freight train, working seasonal jobs, farming, and living in punk and radical communities. When he found a cassette tape with Leadbelly on one side and Woody Guthrie on the other, he was blown away by the beauty and power of those legendary musicians and their songs. He picked up a beat-up Stella guitar, and has been writing and playing his own songs ever since.

Chris Pureka

w/ special guest Lo Pony

Chris Pureka is a Portland-based singer-songwriter whose body of work has resonated deeply with these seemingly disparate milieus. Their music has straddled the folk, americana and indie rock genres over the course of their 20 year career, and over that time, their bold vulnerability in processing the intimacies of life in song has struck a chord with those listeners who crave authenticity and depth.

Lo Pony is a queer folk group based in Portland, Or. Their sound is composed of delicate harmonies discussing loss, nostalgia, and a slow appreciation for the beauty of everyday life. Lo Pony’s music stems from years of steadfast friendship since meeting in college in 2008.

Daniel Adam Maltz

 Maltz is a fortepianist based in Vienna, Austria.

Maltz specializes in the Viennese fortepianos and performance practices used during the era of Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven.

It’s a rare experience: a concert as Mozart and Beethoven intended their music to be heard — on an 18th-century Viennese fortepiano, an early piano vastly different from modern pianos.

Maltz has 60+ engagements/year and studied Historical Performance at London’s Royal Academy of Music and Vienna’s Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst. For more, please visit https://www.danieladammaltz.com

Joh Chase

w/ Brittany Ann Tranbuagh

Career trajectories are rarely linear or make logical sense. Life is always unpredictable so all you can do is put in good work and keep at it. Joh Chase is a testament to this. Over the past two decades, the Seattle-raised, Los Angeles-based artist has persistently honed their songwriting and toured, opening for acts like Noah Gunderson and David Bazan. This dedication comes out entirely in their songs, which are so timeless, confident, and inviting they can only come from someone who’s devoted their whole life to their craft. Chase’s new album SOLO feels like a turning point for them: it’s the culmination of a lifetime of writing, losing, loving, and doing it all yourself. Out April 26 via Kill Rock Stars, the LP adventurously toes the line between genres and sensibilities but it’s all filtered through Chase’s charming and fully-formed vision.

Blitzen trapper

Singer-songwriters have been tackling existential questions about life and death since time immemorial… or at least the 1960s. But when it came to Blitzen Trapper’s newest album, Holy Smokes Future Jokes, front man Eric Earley looked beyond mere existence—or even the end of it—to contend with grander cosmic explorations: namely, the intermediate period between a person’s separate lives on earth, “and what it means to escape the cycle of birth and rebirth,” he explains.

Weighty stuff, to say the least. But then again, Blitzen Trapper has never been the type of band to just skim the surface. Over the course of 20 years and ten full-length albums, the Portland, Oregon-hailing act, with singer, songwriter and guitarist Earley firmly at the helm, has crafted a singular catalog of songs—sometimes wrapped in impressionistic imagery and scruffy, singalong melodies (the fan favorite “Furr,” for just one example), and other times rendered in sharp-focus, needlepoint detail and imbued with driving, electrified rhythms (“Cadillac Road,” about a depressed and deserted mill town in the Oregon mountains where Earley’s father once worked, comes to mind here)— that celebrate the human experience in all its triumph and tragedy.

warren dunes

Warren Dunes plays PNW Tropicalia and is led by keyboardist/vocalist Julia Massey. Their unique style of Beach Rock is born from the cold waters and grey sky beaches of the Salish Sea, and is highlighted by Massey’s double keyboards and crystalline voice soaring over chiming guitars and thundering drums from husband Jared Cortese and his brother Dominic Cortese. A long-time favorite in Seattle, Massey’s newest project has gained broader attention with appearances at festivals around the PNW including Treefort Music Fest, and notable performances at Seattle’s Zoo Tunes and the historic Neptune Theater. Their debut LP “Get Well Soon” was voted KEXP’s #20 album of 2021.

In 2024 Warren Dunes will be releasing their second LP “Aquamarine” on May 11, and will be touring in support of the new songs.
