Blues(grass) Vespers – Barleywine Revue & True North
April 15 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
April 15 – 5 p.m.
“Tacoma bluegrassers The Barleywine Revue exist to relieve some of the tension and pop the bubble of seriousness. They want you to untuck your hands and have another beer.”
Chris Kornelis, Seattle Weekly
Barleywine Revue writes and performs contemporary, relevant Bluegrass and Americana music while paying homage to traditional Bluegrass, think Bill Monroe meets Bill Withers. With a unique blend of backgrounds and influences, each member writes songs, takes leads, and adds harmonies, keeping their sound fresh and dynamic.
“True North play tunes so smooth they bring to mind bluegrass-pop artists like Alison Krauss and Union Station, as well as old country legends like Hank Williams, Sr.” Kim Ruehl, West Coast Performer/No Depression
Americana quartet True North is emerging as a Pacific Northwest powerhouse of intelligent, memorable songs, and lush instrumental and vocal performances, with the crazy-good picking and harmonies of a band deeply rooted in traditional folk and bluegrass genres.
