All Our Exes Live in Texas is a fantasy draft of Australia’s finest singer-songwriters — combining to create four-part indie-folk harmony heaven. They’ve had an impressive career to date, touring and performing with The Backstreet Boys, Passenger and

BALLET VICTORIA << FESTIVAL PERFORMERS continued from Page 6

Guided by artistic director Paul Destrooper, innovation is always happening, quietly but insistently. Having produced more than 73 new works, Ballet Victoria started its 15th season in 2018.  Programs utilize a diverse range of choreographies, from baroque music to rock, from opera to folk songs. The result is pure magic.   Festival attendees can expect to see excerpts from Ballet Victoria’s remarkably rich and varied oeuvre. SATURDAY, SUNDAY

BIRCH PEREIRA & THE GIN JOINTS

Born out of a love of the early years of swing, Americana and rock ‘n’ roll, Birch Pereira & the Gin Joints is a band whose sound transports you to the time of speakeasies, honky-tonks and roadhouses. With upright bassist and vocalist Birch Pereira at its center, the band features skilled and versatile musicians who share the love of American song traditions and a desire to offer a fresh angle on them. The band’s debut album, “Dream Man,” was released independently and received the Earshot Jazz Golden Ear Award for “Northwest Jazz Recording of the Year” in 2016. The band also has been nominated for 2017 Vocalist of the Year in the Earshot Jazz Golden Ear awards.  Fans, critics and DJs have delighted in Birch Pereira’s “old soul,” tenor voice, the group’s new, stripped-down arrangements of musical gems from the past and Pereira’s ever growing repertoire of original, yet period-evoking material.

CAROLYN CRUSO

Carolyn Cruso is an acclaimed multi-instrumentalist and composer. Cruso has toured widely in the United States and Europe, as well as producing eight CDs during that time. She is equally at home on hammered dulcimer, flute, guitar and vocals and performs a diverse array of original tunes and songs as well as traditional material. Cruso’s instrumental compositions are mainly for the hammered dulcimer and are inspired by her strong connection to nature as well as her extensive travel and the cultures she’s encountered along the way. Her unusual and lyrical approach to the dulcimer especially delights audiences and has even won over curmudgeons who swore they hated hammered dulcimer!    Cruso celebrates the release of her latest instrumental recording, “Migrations — A Retrospective (19891995),” which draws from four early albums she made with the late great Robert Almblade.   “Migrations” was chosen Best Instrumental CD of 2013 by the Indie Acoustic Project. SUNDAY

CASEY NEILL & JOHNNY B CONNOLLY

It’s been 15 years since Casey Neill and Johnny B. Connolly embarked on a cross country U.S. tour. Fast forward to 2018 and they are together again with songs and instrumentals from the Scots/Irish and American traditions as well as a selection of originals.

CAROLYN CRUSO Connolly was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland where his dexterity on the accordion earned him a place with the established Celtic ensemble, Anam, at the age of 17. For the past few years, Connolly has been touring as a member of internationally acclaimed Irish band Solas and is featured on their latest CD “All These Years.”

Neill is a songwriter and guitarist who tours extensively in the U.S., Japan and Europe. Neill performs solo and with his band The Norway Rats, as well as being a member of indie rock super group The Minus 5. >> FESTIVAL PERFORMERS continued on Page 9

fusion of dance/drama/music for body and voice. Since 1980 he has been a touring artist visiting communities and schools in the Northwest and beyond. Swenson has performed and taught throughout the U.S., as well as in Canada, Europe, Japan and Nepal.  His work is unique in its cross-cultural synthesis of theater, dance and music and its willingness to unbridle the imagination — where freedom is more important than conflict, and within which continual transformations can take place.  SATURDAY

CLAUDE BOURBON

CLAUDE BOURBON

Claude Bourbon is known throughout Europe and America for guitar performances that take blues, Spanish and Middle Eastern stylings into uncharted territories. There is an almost endless amalgam of different influences in Bourbon’s playing, all melting into each other, as he moves from classical openings, across a whole continent of cultural roots, from the Balearics to the Balkans, and then across to the Mississippi Delta.  >> FESTIVAL PERFORMERS continued on Page 10

<< FESTIVAL PERFORMERS continued from Page 8

Neill has a long history in the traditional folk world having worked with masters of Scots/Irish music such as Kevin Burke, Johnny Cunningham and Martin Hayes. SUNDAY It was a sad day for Port Angeles, not all that many years ago, when Abby Mae and the Homeschool Boys played their last show. One of Port Angeles’ favorite bands, they combined the timeless tradition of old time music with Gaelic, blues and gospel. Silly, sultry, spiritual and heartbreaking, Abby Mae and the Homeschool Boys was one foot-stomping band. So it was with great excitement to learn that this great band has been resurrected with one of Port Angeles’ musical heroes, fiddler and vocalist Chandra Johnson. Already well-known as a member of San Francisco’s great Sam Chase Band and Port Angeles’ Crushwater, her newest initiative with the reformed Homeschool Boys is something you don’t want to miss.   Musical synergy is taking two great musical entities and joining them together to create something even better than the sum of its parts.  FRIDAY, SATURDAY, SATURDAY AFTER HOURS

CHES FERGUSON

The music of Ches Ferguson has been described as a folk-delic groove for your soul. Ferguson will take you on a musical adventure weaving original tunes, covers, and improvisational journeys on guitar, cedar flute and vocals. MONDAY

After a dazzling performance at the Austin City Limits Festival, PopMatters.com declared that “they were enthralling, especially McCarter. It’s a feeling I haven’t had since seeing a 16-year-old Derek Trucks render a bunch of unaware bar patrons slack-jawed more than 20 years ago. “While watching Con Brio, I kept looking around the tent, searching the faces: “You’re seeing this right? You get what’s happening?” And they were. It was hard not to be swept up in it all.” SATURDAY << FESTIVAL PERFORMERS continued from Page 9

A long-time favorite of the Juan de Fuca Festival, David Jacobs-Strain is a fierce slide guitar player and song poet from Oregon. He’s known for both his virtuosity and his spirit of emotional abandon. Jacobs-Strain’s live show moves from humorous, subversive blues to delicate balladry and then swings back to swampy rock and roll. Jacobs-Strain has appeared at major festivals throughout the world including a stint on the faculty of Centrum’s Blues and Heritage Workshop at the age of 15.  He’s shared the stage with Lucinda Williams, Boz Scaggs, Etta James, Taj Mahal, the Doobie Brothers and many more. He will be accompanied by Philadelphia’s harmonica virtuoso Bob Beach.  Note: Jacobs-Strain and Beach’s set on Monday will be a joint show with Keith Greeninger and Dayan Kai.  SUNDAY, MONDAY, AFTER HOURS SUNDAY

SUNDAY

GRANDPA’S GRANDKIDS

Back in the 1950s or whatnot, the grandparents of Enoch Bowlby (guitar and vocals), Jacob Wright (bass), Collin McAvinchey (mandolin), Andy Hokit (banjo), Ashley Reis (vocals) and Eric Tonnenson (guitar and vocals) were at a crossroads. The 2018 Juan de Fuca Festival in Port Angeles was looming on the horizon, and these folks knew that event organizers would be in dire need of a bouncy string band to be part of the festivities. “Tasty folk originals intermixed with hard-driving bluegrass standards aren’t just going to play themselves,” said McAvinchey’s grandpa. It was in this moment they realized that the only group with enough raw talent for the gig had to be comprised of their own yet-to-be-born grandchildren. So, the group set upon the task of making children who would in turn make more children to play bluegrass shows and excite Port Angeles crowds time and time again. The plan worked perfectly. MONDAY

HALIE LOREN

HALIE LOREN

Halie Loren is an Alaskan-raised, Oregon-based, internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter. She brings a fresh and original perspective to timehonored musical paths, channeling her innate understanding of connectedness across musical boundaries to forge bonds with diverse audiences in North America, Asia and Europe.

She is currently recording a new album of her original material to be released in 2018.  SATURDAY

HIGH DIVIDE

It’s rare that we book a band two years in a row but, in this case, we felt it was worth making an exception.   Named for the towering ridgeline that bisects the Olympic Mountains, High Divide draws from the heart of traditional folk and bluegrass while capturing the no-boundaries attitude and heartfelt angst of rock n’ roll.    Originally hailing from Sequim, the boys from High Divide have been making music together in various forms for over a decade, and recently finished recording their debut album. Their sound has been described as a harmony-driven, acoustic blend of Americana, folk rock and country.  MONDAY

MARCHFOURTH

Who can forget that moment just three years ago when MarchFourth burst upon the Juan de Fuca Festival with their swirling volcano of high-energy music and spectacle? MarchFourth is an internationally acclaimed, genrebreaking force in the world of entertainment — a sonic explosion delivered by 20 musicians, dancers and artisans who travel the world taking audiences on a joyinducing, foot-stomping, booty-shaking, soul-stirring journey that defies categorization. With exceptional musical quality and a visual kaleidoscope of stilt walkers, hoopers and Vaudeville-style dancers, MarchFourth whips audiences into a celebratory frenzy with an over-the-top spectacle of high-energy compositions, colorful costumes and irresistible charisma.   This is not a band that simply “puts on a show.”  MarchFourth delivers a multi-faceted, indelible experience of pure joy. As bass player John Averill notes, “we definitely have a funk and New Orleans influence, but we also do rock, jazz, lots of different genres. Play it.”   FRIDAY

NAOMI WACHIRA

“I am an African girl, well I know where I’m coming from, and I know who I want to be” is the defiant soulanthem that jumpstarted Afro-Folk singer and songwriter Naomi Wachira onto a whole new path and calling. These words, from the title track of her first EP “African Girl” in 2012, paved the way for this Kenyan-born, Seattle-based artist who is determined to make a contribution in the world by offering music that is poignant, hopeful and life-giving. Five years later comes her sophomore album “Song of Lament.” With music that is both uplifting and somber, there is no doubt Wachira is determined to create a niche in the world and perhaps inch us closer to one another as we remember our shared humanity. Like the two predecessors she has long admired, Tracy Chapman and Miriam Makeba, she hopes that she can contribute to making the world a better place. SATURDAY

PEARL DJANGO

With a performance history spanning over two decades, Pearl Django endures as one of the most highly regarded Hot Club style groups working today. Although the band’s roots are firmly in the music made famous by Django Reinhardt and Stephan Grappelli, its extensive repertoire includes traditional jazz classics and original compositions. Pearl Django has performed at festivals, dances and nightspots throughout the U.S. and abroad. It has played at the prestigious Festival Django Reinhardt in Samois sur Seine and have been featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered.” The band’s signature style is marked by pristine and dexterous string work, colors of Bal Musette, the steady pulse of rhythm guitar and an unmistakable swing that delights audiences of all musical sensibilities. Throughout the years, Pearl Django has cultivated a devoted and enthusiastic following and they continue to play to packed houses wherever they perform. SATURDAY

ROSIE & THE RIVETERS

From Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Rosie & the Riveters never planned to get political. But opening a newspaper or watching the news these days made it impossible to see the status of women around the world and stay silent. The result is Ms. Behave — a collection of gritty, sultry, vintage-inspired folk anthems that paint a portrait of a woman’s voice in a man’s world. A quick read through song titles like “Gotta Get Paid,” “Let ’em, Talk” and “I Wanna be King” gives an idea of what they have to say. Rosie & the Riveters’ unmistakable visual branding of red lipstick, pin curls, and overtly feminine costuming may be deceiving, but this is not a throwback band. Ms. Behave embraces the feminist undertone of their moniker, Rosie the Riveter, in a way they hadn’t previously; one that allows them to shed their please-all attitudes, take a purposeful stance and dare to be themselves. 852113028

THE ROWAN BROTHERS

The Rowan Brothers, Chris and Loren, play acoustic roots/Americana with tight brotherly harmonies and haunting melodies on guitars & lap steel/dobro. The music is an eclectic mix of the sound of modern day Everly Brothers meets the Beatles, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and more. Lorin’s song “Soldier of the Cross” is the title track of country artist Ricky Skaggs’ Grammy winning CD. Chris’s song, “If I Only Could” charted 59 on Billboard Top 100 for The Rowans (including brother Peter Rowan) back in the 1970s while on Warner/Asylum Records. They are an international touring act as a duo as well as with their brother Peter.  Chris and Lorin have shared the stage with Phil Lesh, Leftover Salmon, Steve Miller, Little Feat, Jerry Garcia, Levon Helm and Huey Lewis, to name a few. Their most recent CD is the anthology “Now & Then.”   Special guest Ken Emerson, a virtuoso lap steel/dobro player has recorded with Todd Rundgren and Donald Fagen (Steely Dan).  He’s also well known for Hawaiian slack key guitar and was part of the first compilation Hawaiian Grammy winning CD. SATURDAY

ROYAL JELLY JIVE

Few bands have the ability to evoke an old-school throwback vibe and yet sound entirely fresh and new at the same time. Royal Jelly Jive is one of those bands. Combining elements of soul, rock, swing and hip-hop, Royal Jelly Jive shakes up every dance-party and grooves harder than your typical rock n’ roll band dares to go. It is all fronted by enigmatic singer Lauren Bjelde, whose sultry voice and songwriting lands somewhere between Amy Winehouse and Tom Waits. The infectious sounds of swingin’ horns, gritty keys and a bumpin’ rhythm section carry a crowd into bliss — creating an unforgettable live experience that will leave you wanting more. Since forming in San Francisco’s Boom Boom Room in the summer of 2013, Royal Jelly Jive has quickly ascended to become one of the Bay Area’s most anticipated acts. Playing high-energy shows and festivals in cities and towns all across the West Coast, they have captivated the ears and hearts of almost all who hear them. Royal Jelly Jive will be performing three shows for area students at Port Angeles High School. SATURDAY, AFTER HOURS SATURDAY >> FESTIVAL PERFORMERS continued on Page 17

SCOTT COSSU

Scott Cossu is an internationally known composer, pianist and recording artist. He was up front when New Age was just beginning more than 30 years ago. Cossu was one of the first Windham Hill Artists to join with founders Will Ackerman and Alex Degrassi on their new label out of Palo Alto, Calif. He signed onto the label the same day as Michael Hedges and they both joined George Winston, who was new to the label himself.   Cossu affectionately calls his music heavy mental or “Cosmic National Geographic,” even though he was one of the grandfathers of the New Age scene.  Much of his work exhibits departures from New Age music and includes a melodic blend of jazz, classical and ethnic influences. Cossu has enjoyed great success at the top of the jazz charts and has sold out shows from England to Japan, Chile and Germany.  He will be joined by Lonnie Mardis on guitar and Steve Banks on drums.   SUNDAY

THE SAM CHASE

Over the past several years, The Sam Chase has emerged as perhaps Port Angeles’ favorite out-of-town band. Equally popular in the Bay Area, the band is a twotime winner as “Best Band” in SF Weekly’s “Best of the Bay Readers Poll.”  Hailing from the hills of San Francisco, Sam Chase and his band, whom he lovingly refers to as The Untraditional, take to stages all over the country. Performances have a virulent and frenetic passion which many history buffs might liken to the Norse warriors known as The Berserkers, who were known to have fought battles with an uncontrollable, trance-like fury.  In 2012 came the release of his long awaited first studio album, “The Sam Chase Will Lead Us To Victory,” which took the group all across the United States. The cry came for more, so they released a new album, “The Sam Chase Will Never Die.”  MONDAY, AFTER HOURS SUNDAY

TILLER’S FOLLY

TOO LOOSE CAJUN/ZYDECO BAND

The ever-popular Too Loose Cajun/Zydeco Band is ready to rock with their infectious brand of Cajun and zydeco dance music from Southwestern Louisiana. With their traditional Cajun/zydeco instrumentation, this band will take you on a rollicking journey into the heart of the Louisiana bayou with two fiddles, accordion, electric and acoustic guitars, piano, the traditional Louisiana rub-board, and a kickin’ rhythm section. With their vocal harmonies tart and sweet, male and female, they are perennial favorites on the zydeco stage at the Portland Waterfront Blues Festival as well as many other parties and festivals. So come on down, and don’t forget your dancin’ shoes. SUNDAY

ventions of popular music. The band features pure and thrillingly elastic vocals with catchy arrangements of bass, guitar, mandolin and accordion that draw from jazz, classical, folk and pop influences. Inspired by artists such as Joanna Newsome, Bright Eyes, the Decemberists and the Punch Brothers, and forged from a sonically adventurous acoustic music scene of Canada’s west coast, West My Friend is proving to be a key part of a new generation of grassroots folk music. With the release of their third and latest album “Quiet Hum,” West My Friend builds admirably on the body of great music coming out of Victoria and across British Columbia. FRIDAY, SATURDAY, AFTER HOURS FRIDAY >> FESTIVAL PERFORMERS continued on Page 18

A festival favorite, it’s been seven long years since Tiller’s Folly last joined us. Tiller’s Folly is the Pacific Northwest’s critically acclaimed, internationally travelled acoustic power trio, planted at the forefront of a bold new movement in progressive roots music. A highly regarded Canadian Celtic group turned historians, this award-winning ensemble has shifted to what might be more aptly termed acoustic roots music.  Principle songwriter and vocalist Bruce Coughlan is a true collector of songs and a multi-faceted talent — fated to be recognized as one of the great Canadian songwriters in the league of Gordon Lightfoot and Stan Rogers.  Fiddler and multi-instrumentalist Nolan Murray is an Oregon State Fiddle Champion, top 10 Grand Master Champion and top 10 U.S. National Fiddle Champion.  The bassist Laurence Knight is an expressive musician who adds his soulful, rhythmic signature to the Tiller’s Folly blend.  MONDAY Peninsula Daily News/Sequim Gazette

WHISKEY MINSTRELS

Award-winning songsmith Bruce Coughlan and awardwinning multi-instrumentalist Nolan Murray team up to share music and stories from four decades on the road. Their music reflects years spent drawing influences from the tap-roots of roots music. At times you’ll hear Celtic influences and stories from their times in the highlands of Scotland. At other times, the bluegrass and country slues of their journeys through the South. Songs from all the roads in-between. Stories that speak of a rich and colorful landscape that has been laid out for these talented artists to interpret.  Coughlan is a multi-faceted talent and great Canadian songwriter while Murray is a top 10 U.S. Grand Masters and top 10 U.S. National Fiddle Champion. Coughlan and Murray also are two-thirds of Port Angeles favorites Tiller’s Folly.  This performance is sponsored by Sherie Maddox. SUNDAY   

WORLD’S FINEST

An eclectic five-piece band combining Americana, ska, dub and bluegrass, World’s Finest banks on its ability to transcend genres of all kinds. String-centric and bluegrass-inspired compositions seamlessly transition into three-dimensional psytrance, funk and dub soundscapes, leaving their audience with a full-circle experience of emotion and dance. World’s Finest’s appreciation for punk and ska can be found peppered throughout its shows and albums, made evident by up-tempo, high-energy offerings. Never happy to settle, the band is always looking to push through boundaries and challenge themselves. With five albums under their belt, the band is still firing on all cylinders. World’s Finest has hit the West Coast festival scene hard, making appearances at High Sierra, Northwest String Summit, Summer Meltdown, Oregon Country Fair, 4 Peaks, Symbiosis and more.
