    Americana Roots Songwriter from Bellingham

    Coty Hogue's got something different in her. Maybe it's from growing up in a Montana town several orders of magnitude below “small;” maybe it comes from immersing herself in a folk music tradition that extends back for centuries. Whatever it is, you'd be hard-pressed to put your finger on it.

    But when Coty picks up her banjo and lets her voice out, there it is. You'd think she's a pretty young gal, but her voice gives her away when she sings those fine old Appalachian songs. That voice, pitched low and steady, keeps raising chills. Then she'll apologize for playing too many sad songs in a row and launch into a fast-picking barnburner. Frequently accompanied by Aaron Guest (12-string guitar) and Kat Bula (fiddle), Coty's song selection runs the gamut of American roots music- a little blues, a pinch of swing, a spoonful of classic Opry.

    Coty grew up with horses and big sky in Philipsburg, Montana- population just over 900. She left in the early half of the decade for an education in Bellingham, Washington. That sweet, subdued little city- long known for its thriving roots music community- became home. Over the next few years, Coty played all over town, traded songs with anyone she could find, and learned how to play any stringed instrument she could get her hands on.

    In 2009, Coty packed up her bags and headed east to Boone, North Carolina, where she received Masters in Appalachian Studies. Along the way, she recorded an album, Going to the West, which charted #1 on the FOLK-DJ charts for the song "Going To The West;" toured the West Coast; performed at the 2010 International Folk Alliance Conference, the Subdued Stringband Jamboree, and Seattle's historic Folklife Festival; and her music will be featured in the independent film, Neon Sky. In 2012, she released her second album, When We Get To Shore, recorded live at Empty Sea Studios in Seattle, Washington with bandmates Kat Bula and Aaron Guest.

    If you get the chance to see Coty Hogue, don't miss it. It's a rare sort of performer who will keep you transfixed through several full sets of music. She'll burnish out-of-the-way gems and set them on fire again with her skilled interpretation. She'll sneak in tunes of her own composing that you'll swear you've heard before.

    She's got the simple elegance and understated mastery of her craft that distinguishes much more established players, and it is this- a young voice flavored with the tannins of an old soul- that quietly sets her apart.

    Joseph: Genetically Perfect Harmony Sisters
    Bird Courage: Haunting Folk from NY

    A cannot miss night of some of the best in up-in-coming folk music is coming to the Fort George Brewery's Sunday night concert series on January 8th. Bird Courage, on a Northwest Tour all the way from Brooklyn, NY will be joining Portland's, Joseph, who surprised listeners in an amazing way when they opened for Marshall McLean in 2014. Bird Courage whose music has been described as, "astral pastoral," brings about a show of raw, authentic folk that is not afraid to fly it's freak-folk flag.

    Bird Courage is made up of Erik Meier and Samuel Saffery who began playing together after a succession of encounters in unconventional rehearsal and performance spaces. They make gently romantic, nature-influenced folk, with a minimalist, ambient sensibility and an acoustic levity. Their debut EP ‘A Promising Flee’ was released in 2012, followed by LP ‘Maia Manu’ in 2013.

    The band has planted seeds in New York to grow a fan base that has spread throughout the North East, East Coast, South and Northwestern coastal parts. They’ve recently debuted at this year’s End of the Road Festival, including features with The Line of Best Fit and venues such as Rise Music (Bristol), Fringe 2014 (Edinburgh) and sold out shows at 12 Bar Club and Rough Trade West. The band has also toured through Europe and were featured at this year’s Into the Great Wide Open Festival in Vlieland, with sold out shows in Berlin (Kuss Kuss), Paradiso (Amsterdam) and Le Bus Palladium (Paris.)

    In June, 2013 they were sponsored by Brooklyn Brewery to play shows in North Carolina representing ‘Brooklyn Music’ and in September they played a month long residency at The Ace Hotel NYC. They have played the Boston Arts Festival, The Last Weekend Festival, Postcrypt Folk Festival (headliners) and Rooftop Films NYC.

    Joseph consists of sisters Natalie, Allison and Meegan. Joseph is native. Joseph is dreamer. Joseph is kin.

  • [Astoria] Sunday Night Live Music - Jonah Tolchin - Polecat
    Starts: 8:00 pm
    Ends: January 25, 2015 - 10:00 pm
    Location: 1483 Duane Street; Astoria, Oregon; Upstairs at Fort George

    Jonah Tolchin: Phenomenal Songwriter from New Jersey
    Polecat: Folk-Stomp from Bellingham

    Another night of music will go down at the Fort George Brewery as they welcome songwriter, Jonah Tolchin, from all the way down the road in New Jersey. Tolchin will warm up the Fort George Brewery before continuing a US Tour with Dave and Phil Alvin. Rounding out another Sunday Night Concert at the Fort will be house favorite stomp-grassers, Polecat.

    Jonah Tolchin's interest in electric blues grew to encompass its acoustic predecessors, which in turn lead to him discover and embrace other traditional folk forms. From Guthrie's talking blues to the unyielding pulse of oldtime stringband music, Tolchin absorbed it, attempted to play it, and in the process found his own voice as a songwriter and a singer. His style, illustrated so convincingly on his Yep Roc debut Clover Lane, bridges the gap between classic folk self-sufficiency and punk's DIY defiance with a uniquely poetic, openhearted sensibility at its core.

    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.
