The SteelHead Bluegrass Band is a contemporary bluegrass band based in Kitsap County, Washington. Their music ranges from sweet love songs to the hard drive and excitement of traditional and contemporary bluegrass. Strong vocals are the centerpiece of the band, but let’s face it, these folks can pick. You’ll be hard-pressed to keep your foot from tapping and your heart from singing along. So come on down and enjoy, just like all “Steelhead” they are hard to catch, but worth it. Click here to visit their Facebook page
While you may not recognize this band name, you might recognize the folks that have come together to form Borrowed Time. Martin Stevens, Josh Adkins, Jake Monroe, and Kaiti Dewhirst are longtime friends and musicians in the Northwest music scene – showcasing in regional groups such as The Bluegrass Regulators, Kristen Grainger and True North, Topstring, and The Scudrunners. Even though they’re scattered across the country nowadays, these talented multi-instrumentalists are thrilled to have a chance to be back together sharing tunes with you this holiday season.
Runaway Train, based in the South Puget Sound area, came to be in the year 2000 and has evolved throughout the years. They’ve performed through the Northwest for festivals, concerts and private events including all of the major area bluegrass festivals. They have a traditional sound but are not afraid to push the limits. They are host band for Shelton’s Bluegrass from the Forest.
