Wooden Sleepers will be playing at our humble Gazebo stage Sunday, September 3rd. Join us for an afternoon by the lake listening to the tunes of this Portland based folk trio while enjoying some delicious wine. Picnics, children and leashed pets welcome!
Wooden Sleepers spans the broad genre of folk, from softer tunes resembling traditional folklore, through upbeat chops in the direction of bluegrass, and on to modern folk with true flavor and creativity. Their combined mandolin, guitar, acoustic bass, and welling harmonies create a whirlwind of enchantment and positive vibration.
The band formed in early 2014 and is comprised of Nolan Gordin, Nik Kemmer, and Phil Krug, with frequent special guests. They hail from California, Maryland, and New York but met in Portland in 2013 at singer/songwriter nights and on the soccer field. All members contribute to song writing and are multi-instrumentalists. With lyrical content reminiscent of travel, romance, the beauty of nature, and life in the Old west, they are sure to captivate. Their influences include Trampled by Turtles, The Wood Brothers, Elephant Revival, Railroad Earth, Milk Carton Kids, and Fruition.
