Music + Dancing= Happy: Poor Man’s Whiskey and Fruition part of that equation at 4 Peaks Music Festival

Catch Poor Man's Whiskey and Fruition at the 4 Peaks Music Festival.

The 4 Peaks Music Festival—our local backyard bluegrass hootenanny, is nearly upon us. It runs this Friday, June 22, through Sunday, June 24. Before you head out to camp at your home-away-from-home for three days, here are two bands playing this year you should know more about. Poor Man’s Whiskey

This Bay Area group plays finger-bleeding bluegrass with a flair for performing that immediately translates to a good time. Often dancing on stage with big smiles– Poor Man’s Whiskey has even doffed their clothing in favor of covering up their, ahem, fiddlesticks with whiskey barrels. Songs like “Humbolt Hoedown” and “Ramblin’” will provide tons of hand-clap inducing banjo and as a result, your feet will also be delighted.

10-11:15pm Friday, June 22
Fruition

While there will certainly be several opportunities to dance your ass off at 4 Peaks, the Portland band Fruition offers a unique chance to pause and experience some reflective tunes, as well as high step to some kickdrum-backed string music. With beautifully blended vocals from guitarists Jay Cobb and Kellen Asebroek as well as mandolin player Mimi Naja, Fruition create harmonies sure to be the perfect accent to the festival’s scenic backdrop.

2:30-3:30pm Saturday, June 23
