Country Trash.jpg

The 7-piece band Country Trash formed late 2008 in Sonora, CA. The group spent their first year writing songs and playing the occasional rowdy show at local bars. By 2010, they were performing throughout northern CA and made a second home in Santa Cruz. After two years of establishing themselves in the area, the band relocated to the pacific northwest, and settled in Portland, OR. They then re-tooled with two new members, and began writing again. In late 2012, Country Trash headed to Seattle, WA to record a four song e.p. to be released early '13 with Chicago-based Go Forth Records; to be followed by a full length the same year. Blending a motley crew of floor stomping rhythms, blazing guitar leads, trumpet and mandolin, Country Trash definitely have forged a sound all their own. They will bring a contagious amount of energy to any room, and whether you know the songs by heart, or it's your first time, you'll find yourself  singing, drinking, and dancing right along with them.

Ripe Red Apple is about passion. They thank the apple of sin every day for their beautiful lives of love, lust, curiosity, solitude and sorrow. The band is inspired by the great roots musicians of the early-mid 1900s as well as newer music. Formed in Valparaíso, Chile in 2008 and based now in Portland, Oregon, Ripe Red Apple released its first serious full-length album on August 12, 2014. This fiery album consists of ten original blues songs inspired by the hypnotic, riff-and-rhythm-heavy music of the northern Mississippi hill country. With bulletproof loyalty and with much love, this band plays for self-release and honest expression, not made to please.

Terry Robb has long been considered one of the top acoustic blues guitarists. His dynamic fingerpicking style and ability to sound like a hard, yet sophisticated, band all within a solo performance have amazed audiences worldwide and earned him international acclaim. His ensemble playing showcases sheets of sound with lightning-fast soloing of adventurist improvisation. From absorbing music from the great Mississippi Delta, ragtime and country artists, from swing to free jazz, Terry’s foundation is the blues but his influences and music are diverse, always possessing a personal feel unto himself: Roots with a contemporary edge, looking forward.
