Pick's Sisters Folk Festival Picks | Sound Stories & Interviews | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Gangstagrass — Hip hop meets bluegrass? Yes, that's a thing and is more successful than you might think. Emmy-nominated outfit Gangstagrass features MC hip-hop beats in sync with banjos, fiddles and dobros. These pioneers of the New American sound have earned a reputation for excellent live performances. // Fri., 11:30pm. Sisters Saloon. Sat., 2pm. Angeline's Bakery. Sat., 11pm. Melvin's Fir Street Market.

Banda Magda — Perhaps one of the most diverse acts on the lineup, Banda Magda draws on the band's global background, which includes Greece, Argentina, Japan, Colombia and the U.S. The band combines South American rhythms with improvised jazz, cinematic arrangements, audience and world "chansons" in six languages. Bring dancing shoes! // Fri., 11pm. The Belfry. Sat., 9pm. Depot Cafe. Sun., 1:30pm. Melvin's by Newport Ave. Market.

Phoebe Hunt & The Gatherers — Phoebe Hunt stands on her own as a virtuoso instrumentalist, but a takes it a step further as a singer-songwriter. Together with The Gatherers, Hunt connects with audiences through her soulful voice and Americana sound. // Fri., 11pm. Depot Cafe. Sat., 3pm. Sisters Art Works. Sun., 3:15pm. Village Green Park.
