Last Local Sunday Music Series
Richard Tillinghast is a singer/songwriter who blends the sounds of roots Americana with a contemporary message of social responsibility and hope. He and his new cd ONEHUM are “alive with passion, fresh energy, and joy” (Columbia Gorge Weekly). His style is unique – a mixture of Appalachian mountain sounds, quiet spirituality, and the humor of an ex pro kayaker, horse wrangler, and world traveler. “Music is storytelling and exploration,” he says on his website. “With this CD I’m asking what we’re doing here and how we can help each other along the way.”
From his first gig in London at age 19, he has played hundreds of shows nationwide. Recordings include “Blue Tattoo,” (1995), “Men and Their Machines,” (1996), and “Onehum,” (2005 with Jason Russ). He has performed up and down the Columbia River Gorge and been invited to festivals from Arkansas (Ozark Folk), to North Carolina (Black Mountain Music), to Colorado (Telluride Mountain Film). “Soulful porch side rhythms.” (Hood River News). “His music is a deep, healing well.” (Edge Magazine SC). Bluesy acoustic slide guitar, mountain banjo, and “one-in-a-million voice” (Creative Loafing SC) – all engaging audiences with songs that capture today’s times.

Sweetwater String Band
Sweetwater String Band is a high energy, cello-driven bluegrass band. They deliver soulful lyrics embedded in original tunes. Formed in 2008 in the small mountain town of Mammoth Lakes, their music is inspired by the wild deserts and high mountains of eastern California. The band quickly established roots and a fan base playing at locally-renowned venues such as Whoa Nellie Deli on the shore of Mono Lake, and a the mid-mountain station accessible only by ski gondola. A crazed shoulder to shoulder popularity has stuck with them. Recent tours have now taken them further afield throughout California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado including festival stops at Durango Bluegrass Meltdown, Humboldt Hills Hoedown, Millpond Music Festival, Northstar Bleerfest and Bluegrass, Backcountry Bluegrass Festival, Mountain Sage Music Series, and Tahoe’s Telegrass. They’ve performed with favorites such as Grant Farm, Cornmeal, Dead Winter Carpenters, and the New Riders of the Purple Sage.

Hot Club Time Machine
Hot Club Time Machine are a gypsy swing band based out of Nashville, TN, consisting of members Derek Pell on violin, Austin Fillingo on guitar, Ethan Ballinger on mandolin, and Mike Rinne on bass.
They play old style swing music with a new spirit and youthful energy, having a passion and respect for the swing and European gypsy jazz of the 30’s and 40’s (Django Reinhardt in particular) while adding their own personalities into the mix.
Their live shows are known to be infectiously energetic and highly entertaining, playing anything from popular tv show themes to soul and jazz standards, lightning fast rompers to beautiful ballads, old and new classics alike. They are eager to share their love for the music and make believers out of those who think swing is outdated and merely for old people.

Big Twang Theory
The Twangshifters are one of those bands you stumble across one night on a bender and never forget. Playing stripped down, no-nonsense rockabilly, blues and rock ’n’ roll, they’re the love children of Carl Perkins and Patsy Cline, and plan to celebrate the release of their smokin’ hot debut CD at a jam replete with burlesque dancers (including national champ Holly Dai) and lots of slicked-back hair types. This is not a party for timid souls or indifferent hipsters, so leave the attitude at home and bring a pack of filterless ciggies for the breaks in between.
