- ALL AGES
This is not your Grandparents' folk music. The Bridge City Sinners take old folk songs and original tunes in the direction of a punk rocker.
Lead singer Libby Lux and upright bass player Scott Michaud infrequently started playing music together on the streets of Portland, Oregon over six years ago. They would meet up without rehearsal nor a plan a few times a year with other various street musicians to sing and yell at passer byers. Years before that, on their separate journeys, they traveled, hitch-hiked, and howled at the moon across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. In hobo fashion, they earned what they’d eat and roofs over their heads by the papers and coins tossed into their hat. Through their years of wandering, they were able to pick up a rich catalog of songs passed through the traveling / busking community. In 2012, their mutual best friend and lead singer of folk-punk band Profane Sass, passed away when he fell off a train in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In a way the Bridge City Sinners are a homage to keep his spirit alive and continue passing along the music they all sang together on the streets, hidden in trains, and in living rooms across the continent. They formed the Bridge City Sinners in the Winter of 2016. They now have jobs; they now have stable living quarters. Toxic Toast Records will be pressing their already released album in early 2018 on Vinyl and Cassette Tape
The Bridge City Sinners (Portland, OR)
Rowdy Folk music with a Punk Rock Heart. Lead singer Libby will be happy to see you as she will have been crammed in an Astro van with six smelly boys.
Clyde and the Milltailers (Grand Junction, CO)
Rag-grass! If you’re into banjos (and fun) watch Clyde’s solo set. Feel free to ask him what the hell a Milltailer is..
