    January 27 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

    When not the fronting celebrated Tom Waits tribute band, The Bleeding Romeos, leader John Wies is passionately producing original material with his trio, Weiswald.  The band incorporates Waitsonian off-beat syncopation, arrangements, and moody rants into rhythmic grooves and story-telling vignettes. Enhanced by Wies’ percussive guitar playing, the idiosyncratic Mike Young on percussion and the versatile keyboard playing of Jon Lanthier, the music of Weiswald spans musical genres, offering listeners something both familiar and new.

    The Gossamer Strings is a folk music duo from Eugene, Oregon with rich harmonies over beautiful instrumentation on guitar, banjo and mandolin.  Haunting original songwriting by Kyle McGonegle and Liat Tova Lis.  They unravel a new story in each song with clear and heartfelt emotion and voice.  This close pair breathes together, not just in their harmonies, but also through their instruments.

  6. Shawn James

    March 10 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

    Born in Chicago in 1986, singer, songwriter and multi instrumentalist, Shawn James discovered the power of soul in music he experienced while growing up on the south side.
    Shawn James brings extreme passion to his music. You feel it in the imaginative, highly nuanced songwriting and see it in the powerful live shows where there’s never the slightest hesitation and nothing is held back. And, most importantly, you can hear it resonate in Shawn’s most powerful instrument: the unique, soulful voice that sounds like it is literally being torn out of his heart…and it is something you won’t soon forget.

  8. Tom Waits Tribute: The Bleeding Romeos

    March 17 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

    You know when you cover Tom Waits you’d better bring everything but the kitchen sink. Check that: bring the sink too. And a plunger. The Bleeding Romeos bring the whole kitchen.

    John Wies’ percussive guitar playing style and guttural vocals establish the foundation. Performing locally as a soloist and in various bands including his own Weiswald (Treehouse fans loved him last fall!) he brings a serious yet playful Waits persona that works perfectly to set this apart from just another tribute project. John has also taken the stage in far flung places such as Japan and Korea, had his work showcased in Alaskan theatrical performances, and gotten air-play on Mongolian radio.

  10. Gurf Morlix

    April 19 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

    Gurf Morlix fellow – Buffalo born, Texas bred – has provided us with countless indelible musical moments in the last 40-plus years: his exemplary guitar and production work with Lucinda Williams; his instrumental accompaniment to artists ranging from Blaze Foley to Warren Zevon; his production of watermark albums for artists such as Ray Wylie Hubbard, Robert Earl Keen and Mary Gauthier – and, since 2000, a series of eight solo records that have a singular worldview and can be both harrowing and heartening, often at the same time.

  11. Kathryn Claire & The Lasses

    April 20 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

    Kathryn Claire met The Lasses at the same place where The Lasses themselves had met two years earlier. The three girls soon found out that together, they could deliver both heartfelt ballads and foot-stomping songs with equal measures of joy and musicality. After playing several concerts together in The Netherlands and Germany in 2014, Kathryn offered to help bring The Lasses to the Pacific Northwest for their first US tour in 2015. It was a huge success and the three realized they had begun not only a strong musical collaboration, but also a network of touring between the US and Europe. Their share love of traditional and original music along with their varied backgrounds make for a thrilling live performance. This is a collaboration not to be missed.

  12. Rod Picott

    May 9 @ 8:00 pm

    Seventeen years ago Rod Picott dropped his tool belt, picked up an acoustic guitar and released his first album Tiger Tom Dixon’s Blues. The acclaimed debut put a nail in the coffin of his construction career and ignited his second career as a singer-songwriter. With his new album, Out Past The Wires, that second career reveals itself in full flame. Like much of Picott’s catalog, many of the songs on Out Past The Wires center around the lives of working people and the losses, defeats and small victories that can come hard won in a calloused world.  Picott’s eye for the revealing detail and sense of empathy has brought praise from music critics.

  13. LeRoy Bell & His Only Friends

    May 26 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

    Having performed with B.B. King, Van Morrison, Etta James, Al Green, Michael McDonald, Colin Hay, Mavis Staples, Keb Mo, Taj Mahal, Leon Russell, Sonny Landreth, Charlie Musselwhite and Los Lobos, not only has LeRoy grown as a touring artist, but the experience has given his music an edge that places him in a league of performers creating a sound that crosses many demographics.

  14. Bear Market Riot

    June 9 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

    In 2014 Kirk Nordby and Nick Motil met at a songwriter showcase in San Luis Obispo, CA. Over a bowl of gumbo the two conspired to busk together at the Baywood-Los Osos Farmer’s Market. Upon agreement that two beards are better than one, they became Bear Market Riot (Los Osos means The Bears).

    Bear Market Riot is “power-folk” and Americana music from California’s Central Coast. And Kirk grew up on Bainbridge Island (BHS class of 2005!).

  15. Greg Brown

    August 25 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

    Greg Brown certainly has little left to conquer in the music world, what with multiple Grammy nominations and an astonishingly deep songbook that’s been covered by dozens of artists (including Willie Nelson & Carlos Santana, Iris DeMent, Ani DiFranco, Gillian Welch, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Joan Baez, Victoria Williams, Robert Earl Keen, Nina Gerber, Shawn Colvin, Richie Havens, Rainer Ptacek, Tim & Mollie O’Brien, Maria Muldaur, and many more!
