THE MUSICAL ACTS

Bradley Andrews

In a blend of folk, jazz and Americana, Olympia-based musician, Bradley Andrews, plays a finger-picking style with strong rhythms and clean melodies. His songs focus on the universal stories of human existence such as falling in love, the search for meaning, and growing old.

Caroline Hecht

On guitar or banjo, the allure of Dark Folk/Americana songstress, Caroline Hecht, creeps up on audiences like a strong drink, effortlessly enchanting. Nominated for “Best Vocalist”, “Best Songwriter”, and “Best Bluegrass Band” by Motif Magazine in 2013, her unique originals are vastly dynamic, drawing frequent comparisons to PJ Harvey, Cat Power, and Mazzy Star.

The Stragglers

With haunting vocal harmonies and a flair for improvisation, Portland bluegrass trio, the Stragglers, travel the back roads of bluegrass and country. Winding through barn-burners and ballads, the Stragglers always take the scenic route.

 

THE VENDORS

The Blue Room Bar and Cartlandia are committed to community involvement and growth. In this spirit, the Blue Room Bar and participating food carts have committed to donating a portion of their proceeds to the National MS Society during the MS Bites fundraiser.
