Borne from local songwriter collective Thistledown, this quartet has emerged as a musical force layering acoustic sounds into patterns that often rearrange themselves several times within a single track. Gypsy, folk, blues, and bluegrass are among the genres you’ll hear from the mouths and instruments of these seasoned musicians. Neal, Heather and Ty all bring original compositions to the stage and work up unique interpretations of some of their favorite folk, rock, and blues artists.
High Whiskey Pine Yell
Born out of a desperate need for craft beer, deep powder, plastic jug moonshine, fast-moving rivers, and a deep-seated fear that artificial intelligence will ruin hard-driving bluegrass… High Pine Whiskey Yell came together as a band in 2018. This four-piece group of modern-day rounders focuses on telling true stories.
Bringing experience from a multitude of projects, this Idaho string band is sure to win you over with its take on bluegrass and the Americana tradition. Although newly formed, its members have played in numerous bands and projects throughout the years incorporating those experiences into Idaho storytelling that is High Pine Whiskey Yell.
Scotty Tyler’s fiddling playing is aggressive enough to land an Idaho brown trout, yet soothing enough pacify a wookie in a festival hammock. Tyler Schmidt’s wielding of the mandolin is nothing short of broadsword-esque and captures the true essence of the mandolin’s spirit animal (jaguar-rattlesnake). Brian Carrington guitar flat-picking could woo even the most elusive of sasquatches out of the woods. And Chad Lamer’s upright bass playing… well let’s just say they sometimes give him water, beer, and let him ride inside the truck.
Music created with the intention of spreading unconditional love, universal acceptance, and an urge to reach across social, spiritual, and cultural boundaries.
Born of the woods, rivers and waterfalls of Oregon, reggae-fusion group Sol Seed sports diverse vocal styles, an eclectic sonic playbook and ethereal world music influences.

Committing themselves to tending a fellowship between performer and listener, the audience becomes a part of the music, creating a unique and unforgettable live experience, centered in the heart space.
