Foghorn Stringband
Credited for igniting the Old Time Renaissance in Northwest, Foghorn Stringband continues to stand out as the shining gold standard for American Stringband music. With their 8th album, Devil in the Seat in hand, thousands of shows and over a decade of touring under their belts, it's no surprise that this band, as proclaimed by Stuart Mason, The Fiddle Freak, "has blossomed into a full-blown force of nature that threatens world domination". Through all of this, they've never let the music grow cold; instead Foghorn has been steadily proving that American Roots music is a never-ending well of inspiration.

Today Foghorn Stringband features the intertwining harmonies of founding members, Stephen "Sammy" Lind, Caleb Klauder along with powerhouse vocalists, Reeb Willms and Nadine Landry, all of whom bring a wealth of songs, instruments and traditions making them a festival favorite from coast to coast and around the globe.

"This band has an established sound that rides the cusp of old time and bluegrass and manages to glean the best of both in the process." - Bob Buckingham, Fiddler Magazine

"This American foursome cocks some mighty keen ears in the direction of American old-time music, and this latest collection sees them in the finest of form, with their songbooks, harmonies and fiddle lines criss-crossing state lines with capricious abandon." -Siobhan Long, Irish Times

"This is old-time American string band music that comes through as fresh as tomorrow's sunrise and with equal sparkle." - Tom Franks, Folk Words

"Many are called, but few are chosen. On their new recording Devil in the Seat, Foghorn Stringband proves once again that they are still the Chosen Ones when it comes to down-home, foot-stomping, ass-kickin' old time music." - Stuart Mason, Fiddle Freak

"Talk about a band that deserves more due. The Foghorn Stringband has quietly become one of the country's longest-tenured underground stringbands, releasing now 7 albums, playing thousands of shows..." -Saving Country Music

"[Foghorn Stringband} ...is among the finest practitioners of American old-time music on the globe, a string band whose faithful renditions of songs from bygone decades are no less than living, breathing history." -Ned Lannamann, The Portland Mercury
