Nick Drummond


6:15pm on Sept 3

Island Thrift / East Stage

Seattle singer-songwriter, Nick Drummond, is a chef and his music is a sumptuous feast. To hear Drummond’s songs is to sit down at a long dining room table, tuck in your napkin and begin to digest all that’s set before you. First the smells and sights then the sounds and conversations that swirl about. With the close and reopening of your eyes, your table is suddenly transported outdoors, Mad Hatter-style, with teacups and intoxicated cats draped over their delicate plates. The songs continue, lavishly.


Drummond is a mainstay in the Emerald City. Whether performing solo with nimble fingers and elastic vocals or backed by some of the region’s best players, from the renowned organist Joe Doria, celebrated guitarist Cole Schuster, or the pocket-perfect combination of bassist Mark Mattrey and drummer Ehssan Karimi, Drummond brings his sonic cornucopia to audiences in rooms of all sizes and states. He’s sold out nights at Jazz Alley and the Triple Door. He’s played the Showbox and Neumos, fingers dancing on acoustic guitars and electric banjos.

Zan Fiskum

Island Thrift / East Stage


Every once in a while, there’s a voice that seems to strike a note for each generation. That voice takes you to a place that’s more intimate than public and more expressive and exuberant than what you expected. Zan Fiskum has that voice. From her childhood experiences in community musical theater to her soaring interpretation of Bob Dylan’s classic, “Blowin’ In The Wind,” Zan has grown leaps and bounds and may possibly be one of the most dynamic female vocalists to emerge from the Pacific Northwest since Ann Wilson or Brandi Carlile. Not only is her voice a spectacular instrument, her song-writing will take you on a journey to travel inside the passion and the pain of today’s youthful anxieties.

Zan’s debut CD, Sleeping Problems, makes her statement through beautiful thematic anthems and love songs, deep with meaning and passion. Working with her producer and sometimes co-writer, Alec Shaw, Zan brings to the table this wonderful collection of songs and stories. She stepped into the national spotlight by placing in the top 9 on The Voice Season #18, where she gained much support from her mentor/coach John Legend.

Stephanie Anne Johnson and the Hidogs


4:45 Sept 4

Island Thrift / East Stage


A singer’s talent is complete when they can bring a crowded dive bar to a collective hush and also get one of the biggest audiences on the planet to a collective standing ovation. Stephanie Anne Johnson is that special singer. The front person for the Tacoma-based band, The Hidogs, she can don a cowboy hat and sing over a slide as old-timers weep. And they wowed judges on the immensely popular NBC TV series, The Voice, showcasing their gifts.

Perhaps it’s no surprise that Johnson is so affecting. Their mantra, after all, is “Find your joy and go there.” Their prowess exudes whether they are singing the Black national anthem—“Lift Every Voice And Sing”—to a packed auditorium or cooing acoustic lullabies to Saturday night tavern regulars. Their music, which is rooted in all that’s American, expresses the pain of the past, the roots of the down home, and the hope that hard work will lead to proper reward.

The Hidogs, which is comprised of dynamic drummer Arturo Ortega Marcos, pocket-perfect bassist Jesse Turcotte, and the prolific Johnson, is a nimble trio as capable of shaking the shingles off a rooftop as making any stage feel like a Sunday service. The group’s latest LP, Take This Love, is a blend of Loretta Lynn and Valerie June. It’s a stunning catalogue of surprise and satisfaction.

Broken Banjo


1:45 Sept 5

Island Thrift /East Stage


The Whidbey Island band Broken Banjo could be described as a folk/Americana vocal group, but that would not begin to describe the range of what this exciting trio delivers. Each member brings something special from their diverse backgrounds and influences. In the span of a few songs, Broken Banjo can move from a soulful ballad or jazz standard to a classic blues song. What makes them intriguing is their unique arrangements with three-part harmony. With Larry Mason on rhythm guitar, Kevin Johnson on lead acoustic and electric, and Deirdre Fairfax on guitar and lead vocals, the three creatively collaborate from their own perspectives and strengths to put a “Broken Banjo stamp” on each song. Their name was adopted from Deirdre’s father’s music and coffee house in the small town of Millington, Illinois, in the mid-60s. It seemed like a perfect namesake for the band that loves to share songs that span across genres and time.

Sway Wild’s infectious sound explores the corners of rock, pop, funk, prog, worldbeat, and folk, but at its nucleus it is undeniably a music full of joy. It can squeeze the heart in your chest, it can draw tears from your eyes, and it can force you to get up and move your body; over and over, it somehow manages to do all three at once. Mandy Fer also tours as the lead guitarist for Allison Russell.

Always Naked


8:00 pm on Sept 3 

Peoples Bank / West Stage

Who are they? No one really knows the right story to tell here. How were they formed? How were they named? Why were they named Always Naked? They aren’t really naked, and isn’t that a direct contradiction to what they’re selling on shirts and sweaters? They figure they might as well just be ass backwards and having fun. What type of music do they play? While much of the Always Naked lyrics are serious and a bit lifetime story-telly, the music itself is drum- and bass-heavy, head-banging alt rock. Always Naked tends to shock people into listening and then somehow makes you love them.Who are they? No one really knows the right story to tell here. How were they formed? How were they named?

Naked Giants


9:45pm on Sept 3

Peoples Bank / West Stage


Seattle’s Naked Giants burst onto the national music scene with their 2018 full-length debut, SLUFF, a candied and insanely catchy blast of unhinged pop-punk-grunge-surf-rock. But if that record was the sound of, as one reviewer labeled them, a trio of “affable miscreants just out of high school” getting their musical rocks off, then The Shadow, the band’s new and second studio effort, is in comparison a decidedly more—what’s the word?—mature offering.

That is, if “mature” is the appropriate term for an album where one member is credited with playing a fun machine, and another merely with having “charisma.”

And so, welcome once again to the extraordinary and eccentric world of Naked Giants. They might be older (average age: 23) and wiser, but the band members—singer and guitarist Grant Mullen, singer and bassist Gianni Aiello, and drummer Henry LaVallee—are still out to conjure a rip-roaring good time.

Outside the Lines


1:00pm Sept 4

Peoples Bank / West Stage


The group takes inspiration from many different musical genres: classic rock, great singer/songwriters, country, pop, and even metal. Although many well-known songs are included in their repertoire, they also like to wander “outside the lines” by switching genres or adding a new spin to make a song unique.

Colette (vocals, percussion) has been an avid vocalist for many years, fronting rock, country, and acoustic groups. She’s “a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll,” bringing a vocal style to the group that is always fun and entertaining.

Jason (guitar, vocals) has been writing, performing, recording, and producing for over 10 years. He has performed in several local groups on guitar, bass, keyboards, and vocals, with styles ranging from metal to indie. His unique perspective and interpretation help shape the sound and arrangements for the group.

Nathaniel Talbot


4:00pm on Sept 4

Peoples Bank / West Stage


It’s a busy life for songwriter and farmer Nathaniel Talbot, who runs an organic vegetable farm and seed company on Whidbey Island. When not out cultivating onions using his solar-powered tractor, he’s inside cultivating songs that are rooted in the earth and American traditionalism.

He was raised in the wooded foothills southeast of Portland, Oregon, where the big firs and wide farmscapes of childhood made a life-long impression on his songwriting. “The natural setting imprinted on my sense of self and populated my brain with the imagery and storylines that would later manifest in my songwriting.” He began learning piano at age seven, started a punk rock band at thirteen, and quickly thereafter began steeping himself in guitar-driven sounds of Kelly Joe Phelps, Elliott Smith, Bill Frisell, and other Pacific Northwest heroes. Over the next 15 years, Talbot honed an approach to songwriting and storytelling, driven by his complex, yet delicate, fingerstyle guitar work, which has earned him a distinct place in the northwest folk scene.
