The Lowest Pair - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
The Lowest Pair
The Lowest Pair is a quirky, old-time roots influenced duet, featuring the high lonesome harmonies of banjo pickin' songsters Kendl Winter and Palmer T. Lee. They perform both traditional and original music, often nestling-in somewhere between. Arkansas born, and homesteading in Olympia, Kendl is a solo artist on indie record label K Records and was one of the founding members of the popular string band The Blackberry Bushes. Palmer hails from Minneapolis, MN and is the front man of high energy festival favorites bluegrass outfit, The Boys n' the Barrels. The two met in early 2013 and began discussing the idea of collaborating. Shorty thereafter they hit the road with their banjos and an old guitar. A few months after the duet formed they teamed up with Dave Simonette of Trampled By Turtles to record their debut record "36¢" put out by Team Love Records. They are road warriors with a city folk front and back porch sentiment. This dynamic duo is turning heads across the country.

Ashleigh Flynn & the Riveters
Like the Ohio to muddy Ol’ Miss, Ashleigh Flynn follows her troubadour heart. A prolific songwriter and a performer blessed with unbridled charisma, Flynn grew up in Kentucky and cut her teeth on local bluegrass, classic rock and Motown. With two critically acclaimed releases, a live EP, and touring that includes 30A Songwriters, Bonnaroo and Bumbershoot, Delfest, High Sierra, Red Ants Pants and Vancouver Folk Fest and support for the likes of Amy Ray, Todd Snider, Hayes Carll, Billy Joe Shaver and the Wood Brothers; Flynn is making a name for herself in Americana music.

With a fresh slate of songs in her arsenal, and what Popmatters describes as "tenacious swagger" Flynn returned to the studio in 2017 to develop a bold new project: Ashleigh Flynn & the Riveters. In both name and spirit, this all-female band is a nod to the “Rosie the Riveter” archetype. The 10 tracks feature Flynn’s compelling stories and soulful voice paired with the guitar style and skill of her bandmate Nancy Luca who grew up playing with Tom Petty and Bo Diddley. The record hearkens back to early Stones and ‘70s psychedelic country rock, the result feels simultaneously new and necessary. Produced by Flynn’s longtime musical collaborator, Chris Funk of the Decemberists, this highly anticipated LP was recorded and mixed in Portland and has been released in the US to great reviews

Huck Notari
I grew up in the white mountains of New Hampshire. Quite a beautiful place. I lived there for some time and then caught a Greyhound one day out to Oregon. Big changes. Was hanging out with musicians and played some open mics around. Wound up in New Orleans miming on Royal Street as Charlie Chaplin and then soon joined a country blues and ragtime band, the Kitchen Syncopators, that featured Gill Landry (now with Old Crow Medicine Show), Woody Pines (touring with his own band) and Felix Hatfield (of Oz st. Fossils and Cardboard Songsters).
Later, I wound up in Portland and began writing songs on guitar and piano and released my first album, "Highland" in 2007 and "Very Long Dream" in 2009. I am usually joined by Karin Nystrom (also with What Hearts), who sings and plays snare drum and Joel Shimmin, who plays a variety of guitars.
I've been playing around the Northwest and have toured a bit in Ireland. Im workin' on my third record currently. Its hard to describe my music, but I generally refer to it as original country folk.
