      Wind down a Halloween Weekend with some phenominal songwriting from the Palouse (Bart Budwig) and Eastern Oregon (Gregory Rawlins). The two songwriters, both amidst Northwest tours will bring their unique sounds to the Fort George Soundstage on Sunday, November 2nd. Expect good music, good stories, special guests, songs you know, people you know and good beer. Don't expect: loud noises, hair bands, or more costumes.

      More about Bart Budwig - Moscow, Idaho
      Bart grew up in the Palouse, the wild, rolling hill country that describes the border between north central Idaho and eastern Washington State. The area is full of nature’s wonders, with wide open, sprawling skies, gently undulating hills and seas of waving wheat, grasslands and fields of hops and grapes. With its inviting, unhurried feel, gorgeously sublime melodies and easy confidence, Whisky Girl has that tangible sense of place that separates the good songwriters from the great ones. And with lyrics that speak of hopes and heartbreaks, Whisky Girl announces a talented, nuanced songwriter with a direct line to the hearts of listeners.

      Bridging the gap between the wide-open sprawl of classic Americana, the insightful observations of folk and the grit and honesty of authentic country, Whisky Girl is both a powerful statement and a great listen.
      Bart’s songs are highly evolved, utterly natural and unwaveringly human, incorporating themes of loss (“A Coke and a Smile” is about the passing of his mother), longing (“Whisky Girl” is about a lover moving to Texas) and even a cover of “Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys”.


      More about Gregory Rawlins - La Grande, Oregon
      Rawlins’ influences draw from a mash-up of classic rock, early country music, and the Seattle grunge wave of the early 1990s– genres illustrated in his solo work, as well as in Sons of Guns, a band he co-fronts with longtime friend Mike Surber.
      In 2008, Rawlins self-released “The Amazing Circle of Boxes,” his 19-track debut album recorded between 2002-2007 during the interims of band activity, in a series of bedrooms, basements, garages and warehouses. At times simple and meditative, at times erratic, spacey, distorted and fused with a myriad of electronics and natural sounds, Rawlins auspiciously established himself as unique entity among American musicians.

      The envelope of experimentation was pushed even further with his 2010 release “Fuggit, I’ll Bet a Hunnerd,” a dust-covered, booze-draped daydream, centered around the concept of one’s struggle to embrace the magical and maddening affects of life in the Grande Ronde Valley– an area Rawlins has inhabited off-and-on for the past decade.
      Between Sons of Guns activity and his own excursions, Rawlins has been seen performing his ditties on anything from a street corner to a festival stage, alongside a gradient of artists such as Tartufi, Finn Riggins, Hillfolk Noir, Blitzen Trapper, Jared Mees and the Grown Children, Run on Sentence and Laura Gibson.

      Polecat is a do not miss, self-proclaimed "Stomp-Grass" band from Bellingham, Washington. Their high energy blend of Americana, Bluegrass, Celtic, Reggae, Country and Rock and Roll makes for an incredible live show. Fresh off of a sold out show at the Wonder Ballroom with Greensky Bluegrass, Polecat is a well oiled dance machine. Performing at festivals like, Bumbershoot and the Northwest String Summit, these guys have their sound down. If you've heard them before, you know the drill, and if you haven't, it is a see, hear, and dance-to-believe show.

      More about Polecat:
      Formed in Bellingham, Washington in Spring 2010, Polecat has traveled all over Northwest U.S., performing over 400 shows in four years. Their unique instrumentation enables them to seamlessly blend genres including bluegrass, country, celtic, rock, reggae, and world music into their sound. The general appeal of Polecat comes from their unique take on roots music and their interactive and high energy live shows.
