Here are our bands and the details:

Stillwater Hill Bluegrass Band

The Stillwater Hill Bluegrass Band is based in the Snoqualmie valley, and has been performing traditional and contemporary Bluegrass music in Western Washington for over 14 years. Each of the band members have deep roots in the Western Washington acoustic music scene, and an abiding love for the high lonesome harmonies and acoustic muscle that makes Bluegrass so unique. The boys play a range of Bluegrass favorites, gospel songs, fiddle tunes, blues, and originals that put the vocal harmonies front and center. Stillwater Hill delivers a high energy performance of foot stomping acoustic fun, served up with a dose of low-brow humor.

Friends of Larry

Friends of Larry It is a special gift to have so much talent come together on a bluegrass stage. Originally formed in 2019 as a tribute to bluegrass legend Larry Sparks, this group from northern Washington State delivers an authentic bluegrass sound, with soulful harmonies, and an unmistakable chemistry. We hope you enjoy our walk through the deepest hollers, all the way up to the ridgetops. Robbie Bennett - fiddle, vocals Pete Goodall - mandolin, vocals Bob Martin - banjo Kevin Miller - guitar, vocals Sarah Miller - upright bass.

Runaway Train

Runaway Train is as solid as it gets. The band has been around seemingly forever (formed in 2000). That is a huge testament to the core players who keep this train running. Greg Linder is a dedicated bluegrasser, not only in this band but as one of the founders of Bluegrass From The Forest festival held each July in Shelton, WA. Currently in its 19th year. Kent Powell, has been a mainstay in the Northwest bluegrass scene for the last forty-three years, playing banjo and bass in several bands, including Crossfire and North Country. Multi-instrumentalist, John White, plays mandolin with Runaway Train. He is a pretty good guitar player as well. Doug Wenzen is the newest member of the band. He is versatile at several styles of banjo playing, including Scruggs, chromatic, and melodic.
