Forest Beutel, the Freeborn Man: a boot-stompin’ Americana Blues One-man band
Stephanie & Angela perform stuff they like…some Bread & Gravy stuff and some other things.
Writing about Armstrong’s solo collection of original songs, Devon Leger of Hearth Music describes his music as “…that of a true ‘songster’. His music carries influences of country blues, fiddle tunes, square dances, honky-tonks; anything that shook the floors of old mountain grange halls and parties. Every song on his solo CD, Chicken Pickin’, was written by Cort, yet these songs sound as old as the hills that inspired them.”
A local husband and wife team with friends who enjoy making music together and know how to get toes tapping. The music they play is a mix of old-time favorite bluegrass, Irish tunes, a few Texas two-step favorites, a sprinkling of vintage soft rock/folk with a “Mixed Company” twist, as well as some spicy Cajun samplings. David Herrera plays mandolin, having played with several groups locally, entertaining friends for a number of years. Bob Warner, on guitar, comes to “Mixed Company” from Olympia and time playing with a blues band. Jon Faverty has played fiddle for decades, formerly playing professionally in south Florida. Jon’s wife, Karen Faverty, rounds out the sound with a bass line, played on a Kala U-bass.
Forest Beutel, the Freeborn Man: a boot-stompin’ Americana Blues One-man band.
Slinging banjo, guitar, harmonica, kick-drum and a high-hat, Beutel builds a twangy upbeat atmosphere that engages a crowd and gets folks on their feet. A modern day ramblin man, Beutel’s voice blends the high lonesome sounds of Hank Williams and Townes Van Zandt with gruff baritone vibrations akin to Tom Waits and Johnny Cash.
Local country & bluegrass band, known for their three and four part vocal harmonies and just the right blend of talent and foolishness. With their toe tappin’, foot stompin’, knee slappin’, hand clappin’, finger snappin’, sound and humor, the Old Sidekicks are a pure delight to watch!
