POLECAT from Bellingham, WA - Americana/Stomp-grass/Celtic
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).
DIRT NAP BAND from Sacramento, CA - Bluegrass/Country/Americana
This contemporary outfit writes songs of truth and lore; these songs are unintentionally timeless. A Dirt Nap Band set offers original, traditional, and on the spot improvisational music.
