SheHaw is a countrified ensemble featuring Belinda Underwood, Lindsie Feathers, Aarun Carter and Nancy King. Belinda is a lifelong musician and dancer who brings elements of the world’s folk art traditions together with her own Western training and luscious soul-creation. Lindsie has roots that go back to Illinois, where she grew up, and Chicago, where she cut her teeth playing live music. She’s gone from playing rock ‘n roll to roots and Americana influences. Lindsie’s latest album Neon Renaissance was recorded with Adam Selzer at Type Foundry (Ural Thomas & The Pain, Peter Buck, Sallie Ford). Aarun is a 2019 fiddle champion and has shared the stage with many noteworthy performers such as Floyd Domino (Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard), Lonestar and others. Nancy is the queen of the Portland jazz scene and is known for her masterful scatting and elastic range. King has performed in worldwide tours and recordings, collaborating with such artists as Jon Hendricks, Vince Guaraldi, Ralph Towner and others. Together they make She Haw, guaranteed to entertain!
Gerle Haggard Band is an all-female Merle Haggard tribute, bringing the best of Haggard’s music to longtime fans while introducing his well-known hits and early work to new audiences. Also featured are The Hag’s own carefully chosen covers from artists such as Bob Wills, Jimmie Rodgers and Dolly Parton. Performances often include storytelling songs, Western swing, the blues, a little jazz and good ole country! The features a terrific lineup of women who weave original instrumentation, tight harmonies and showmanship into an entertaining, community-building event. Active since 2013, Gerle Haggard Band has played The Rose Festival, Oregon Country Fair, GorgeGrass, The Portland Spirit and performed at the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame last year.
