Cascade Crescendo
Cascade Crescendo
Cascade Crescendo, from Portland, Oregon has been crafting their own brand of bluegrass since 2013. Pulling from their vast range of collective influences, they play original, high-energy bluegrass, jamgrass, and Americana music with captivating lead vocals by Hunter White, blazing fast mandolin licks by Aden Beck, and creative, thumping bass lines by Taylor Skiles. Duluth, MN banjo player, Harrison Olk (formerly of Tin Can Gin) joined the band in late 2015, bringing with him solid Scruggs-style banjo sounds and high lonesome harmony vocals.

Cascade Crescendo recorded their first studio album in Spring 2016 at The Hallowed Halls in Portland, OR. The album features fiddle player, Allie Kral (Yonder Mountain String Band) on five tracks and a guest appearance by drummer Nick Werth (Yak Attack, SP3). Cascade Crescendo is gaining steam in 2016, quickly winning over fans across the Pacific Northwest and beyond. They’re on the lineup of the 2016 Northwest String Summit and are planning a West Coast tour in the Fall.

The Warren G. Hardings
The Warren G. Hardings are a high-energy stringband from Seattle, Washington. Heavily influenced by America’s roots, folk and bluegrass heritage, they belong to a generation of young musicians that continues to evolve and adapt these acoustic traditions for the 21st century. The band has a deep affinity for the music of legendary bluegrass pioneers such as Bill Monroe and Flatt & Scruggs, as well as the countless artists following in their footsteps who have helped progress the genre to the rich and diverse art form it is today. The Warren G’s draw on this legacy and contemporary influences, ranging from pop to punk, to create a live show experience that promises a foot-stomping party atmosphere and a good time for all. Whether ripping through old standards or performing original songs, the band strives to provide an infectious energy that gets the crowd moving.
