Silver Lake 66 - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Silver Lake 66
Maria Francis and Jeff Overbo define modern Americana with Silver Lake 66. Hailing from the Midwest, the power couple’s travels have seen them to Los Angeles and now Portland as they continue their musical adventures. More recently, the duo has been gaining incredible traction following the August 2016 release of their debut album, Let Go Or Be Dragged.

With an amalgamation of classic country, folk and blues, their songs have been hailed by numerous publications and radio stations, displaying their knack for authentic, heartstring-tugging songwriting, impeccable harmonies and ardent guitar-playing.

The Huffington Post’s Randy Radic describes Silver Lake 66’s music as “elegant simplicity” and “the real McCoy.” For Folk’s Sake’s Jonathan Frahm calls the duo “the real deal” and highlights their “sweet harmonies that mesh the entirety of their sound together.”
Ashleigh Flynn & the Riveters - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
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
J. Moses and the Ragged Sunday - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
J. Moses is the musical alias of Portland-ish native singer-songwriter Jason Morgan. He's a sleeper. Some might say he's a bit late to the game.

Raised in the hills of Clatskanie, OR his earliest musical exposure consisted mainly of Metal (Heavy and Hair Band courtesy of his older brother) and 70's AM Gold (courtesy of the family station wagon radio and cardboard box of 45's).

Sometime in the waning years of his 30's he made the rare decision to take a mid life stab at being a singer-songwriter. This inevitably led to the often daunting process of "putting a band together". So he took the path of least resistance by recruiting three friends, all of whom were already longtime active Portland musicians.


Enter guitarist Joel Roth (The Low Bones, Daystar), bass guitarist Kip Lindig (WhistlePunk!, Timber County, Barn Burners), and drummer Chris Hutton (RootJack, Hong Kong Banana). Together they make up The Ragged Sunday, which is no accident. Many of their musical themes are rooted in salvation. Deliverance from lost love, broken promises, and the feeling that we are all just hanging on by a thread. Redemption found by embracing our addictions, our fears, and the inherent vice that is our own mortality.

J. Moses and the Ragged Sunday is "rootsy storytelling with a modern classic rock edge". Imagine the music of Crazy Horse, Springsteen, Haggard and The Band getting baptized in a moody Pacific Northwest rainstorm, circa 1992.
