Ben Hunter & Joe Seamons with opener Scratchdog Stringband
Scratchdog Stringband

Scratchdog Stringband plays a high-energy, innovative brand of bluegrass that satisfies both old-school traditionalists and newcomers to the genre. Some of the hardest working young musicians in the Pacific Northwest, the Portland-based ensemble has blazed through over three-hundred shows in the last two years, entertaining audiences with their rich harmonies, lush fiddle lines and break-neck banjo picking. But the Scratchdogs aren't ever married to their instruments, seamlessly passing around the upright bass, guitar, fiddle, mandolin and banjos while trading lead vocals. Their live shows feature lightning-fast rippers sung of murder and ruin, swaggering tongue-in-cheek country tunes as well as heartbreaking ballads of love and loss. Each member sings lead to their original compositions and though with voices highly unique to each other, the quartet manages to expertly blend them into resonant four-part harmonies.

Ben Hunter & Joe Seamons

Ben Hunter & Joe Seamons are songster revivalists who perform field hollers, fiddle & banjo breakdowns, and early jazz that delights audiences in concerts and workshops nationwide. For seven years, their tours have extended their work as teachers and community organizers in their home of Seattle, Washington. With their unique integration of performance, education and modern-day folklore, this duo redefines the role of a songster in the 21st century. In 2016, they earned 1st place in the International Blues Challenges solo/duo category. In July, they released a new album with harmonica master Phil Wiggins entitled Black & Tan Ball.
