The Rogue Folk Club presents The Foghorn Stringband

Mel Lehan Hall at St. James - 3214 West 10th Avenue26 Jan '20 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

    Credited for igniting the Old Time Renaissance in the Northwest, Foghorn Stringband continues to stand out as the shining gold standard for American Stringband music. Seven albums, thousands of shows and over a decade of touring under their belts, it’s no surprise they have two entirely new generations of old-time musicians following their lead. Through all of this, they’ve never let the music grow cold; instead they’ve been steadily proving that American Roots music is a never-ending well of inspiration

    From their origins in Portland Oregon’s underground roots music scene, the core duo of Foghorn Stringband are Caleb Klauder, whose wistful, keening vocals and rapid-fire mandolin picking have always been the heart of the band, and Stephen “Sammy” Lind, perhaps the best old-time fiddler of his generation, have spread the old-time string band gospel all over the world. Along the way, they’ve brought in influences and inspirations from their many travels and fellow bandmates. Vintage country songs became a part of Foghorn Stringband thanks to Klauder’s intense passion for the music; and frequent visits to Louisiana have inspired the group to bring Cajun songs into the repertoire.

    Canadian singer and bassist Nadine Landry, from Québec by way of the Yukon, joined the band in 2008, bringing powerful vocals and a wealth of new songs, many of which are descended from her Acadian roots through the Cajun music tradition. Singer and guitarist Reeb Willms came down from Bellingham in 2011 with a suitcase of old, vintage songs and a powerfully beautiful, pure voice born in the farmlands of central Washington State. These gals add a new dimension to the Foghorn Stringband, providing tight female duets, and a rhythm section that’s as rock solid as they come. The band’s music is as furiously compelling as ever, as Foghorn continues to break the good news about Southern old-time music to new generations.
