The members of the Pacific Trombone Quartet play for symphonies and bands all over the Northwest. Featuring John Warton, Ken Biggs, Greg Scholl and David Bryan, with a collection of classical and contemporary works arranged for four trombones.
Known as a standout electric guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, Mandy Fer is unafraid to dominate the stage for an extended guitar solo, defying long-held gender barriers for female guitarists. Dave McGraw’s emotional songwriting riffs on natural elements of the world around him, belying the many years he spent as a wildlife biologist, studying endangered birds in remote locales from the deserts of Mexico and the Grand Canyon to the mountainous rainforests of Washington. They've toured through the U.S. and Europe, sharing the stages with everyone from Iron & Wine to Kelly Joe Phelps, and they made their most recent album ("Off-Grid Lo-Fi," released in June 2016) in the San Juan Islands, using wind and solar power. The LCCC is pleased to welcome these kindred spirits to the Oregon Coast.
LCCC proudly presents Daimh, the un-challenged champions of straight-in-the-eye Highland music from West Lochaber and the Isle of Skye. Formed around the turn of the century and taking the name from the Gaelic word for “kinship” Daimh (pronounced Dive) have taken their contemporary take of Highland and Gaelic music to over 20 countries, setting audiences alight from Moscow to San Francisco. Featuring Angus Mackenzie and Gabe McVarish on bagpipes and fiddle, Ross Martin on guitar and “new guy” Murdo “Yogi” Cameron on Mandola and Accordion, plus Gaelic vocals by Ellen MacDonald. Recent accolades include last year’s award for the “Best Folk Band in Europe” at the prestigious Folkherbst competition in Germany and most recently winner of “Folk Band of the Year” at the Scottish Traditional Music Awards.
