|The Saturday, May 13 concert features Calico Bones, Cooper Trail, and Nevada Sowle. Doors open at 6:30pm with music starting at 7pm. Admission is $10. No food or drink service provided; BYO.
Calico Bones is a folk, indie, Americana sister act from Wallowa, OR. This duo is known for their tight harmonies, rhythmic instrumentation and variety. Finding inspiration in multiple genres makes for a unique sound. Their style can range from soft, melancholy vocalizing to belting at the top of their lungs and everything in between. Having music in the family that goes back generations has had a profound impact on pursuing their art. Based out of Walla Walla, WA these ladies are working on their second album and you can find them touring the PNW.
Cooper Trail spends most of his time musically as the leader of the band Desolation Horse. They make kinda sweet, crunchy, guitar-driven music rooted in pop in a way that takes the listener somewhere much weirder and wilder than they may immediately realize. They're confidently eclectic songs, dusty, lived-in, and melody driven. Sunshine in the basement. Alternately based out of Idaho and Oregon, the band has put out two full length albums since 2020, with their next effort due for release on American Standard Time in 2023.
You'd expect most musicians from Northern Idaho to be immovably rooted in folk, country, and Americana stylings, but Nevada Sowle doesn't let that landlocked positioning define his sound. Constantly seeking to find new tones both acoustic & electronic, unique yet familiar, Sowle's catalogue fits most snuggly into the category of Pop - but don't let that word deter you if you're a stickler for quality lyrical content and well-thought-out composition. Having spent the past few years recording and touring the west coast with acts like Bart Budwig, Desolation Horse, MAITA, Joseph Hein, and An American Forrest, Sowle has found time in between green rooms and sound booths to develop a style that will help define the sound and style of the Pacific Northwest.
