Old Time

The Horsenecks
The Horsenecks play hard-hitting and heartfelt, traditional and original roots music. Their sound is centered around the pairing of the signature rhythmic Appalachian fiddle style of Oregonian Gabrielle Macrae and the inspired guitar and driving yet subtle banjo playing of Liverpudlian Barry Southern. Harmony singing and thoughtful song writing bring The Horsenecks to the stage with a compelling take on the music that moves them; foot-stomping dance tunes, innovative fiddle-banjo compositions and heartfelt and inspired lyrics and harmony singing. Whether performing as a duo or as a four piece, The Horsenecks continue to set a new standard in today’s traditional music scene with years of touring under their belts, appearances at major festivals in the USA and the UK and three critically acclaimed studio albums.
The Carolina Rose
Caroline Oakley and Rose Minkler play old time fiddle tunes and sing country/honky tonk ballads and duets.
The Cully Cuttups
Hard driving Old time fiddle music with a classic NW tone. It’s happy and lighthearted, but rooted firmly in the Appalachian traditional Stringband style. Fiddle, guitar, banjo and upright bass.
Caleb Klauder

Eugene City Barnstormers
Old time music with an altitude.

Watch:  Will I ever Get Through


How Long Jug Band
The How Long Jug Band plays vintage blues, ragtime and string band music on standard and homemade instruments.


Steve Cheseborough
Steve Cheseborough re-creates the blues, ragtime and hokum of the 1920s-30s, interspersing the songs with stories, history and humor. He has the uncanny ability to turn any setting into a 1925 Mississippi jook joint.


Fine Company
Fine Company combines three voices into that classic American folk sound from the 1960’s-the tight harmonies and close blends. Think Kingston Trio, Chad Mitchell Trio, Seldom Seen. Then we add a dash of great old time songs and tunes and spice it up with some clever originals. It’s all backed with guitars, bass, clawhammer banjo and some on-stage malarkey.
