Portland Old Time Music Gathering
Bubbaville is excited to announce our 20th annual Gathering January 16-20. This year we will host an amazing and multi-talented fiddler and bass player Nokosee Fields. Born and raised in Stillwater, Oklahoma, Nokossee began studying orchestral violin at a young age. After years of learning and performing Classical and Early music, Nokosee has recently turned his attention to various forms of traditional American music, performing, teaching, and touring professionally. As a bassist, he tours with the Country band Western Centuries. As a teacher, he has taught at the Augusta Heritage Center and has been involved with Dancing with the Spirit—an Alaska-based youth and community music program that aims to re-inspire fiddle and dance traditions in indigenous communities throughout the region.

The CD created last year from Gathering recordings met a enthusiastic response at the Gathering, and has been a steady seller across the country this past year. You can order your own copy or get one for a gift (recommended – the beautiful case design and liner notes are well worth the extra couple dollars) or download it directly by clicking the image. Or pick up your copy next month at the Gathering merch table.
