Lineup announced for Timberline Mountain Music Festival posted on 07/02/2018

Tradition continues this Labor Day, Sept. 3, with the Timberline Mountain Music Festival at the historic lodge’s outdoor amphitheater.

“We have again teamed up with the Boyd Coffee Company and the Mt. Hood Brewing Company to host the 2018 Timberline Mountain Music Festival,” Timberline’s Jon Tullis wrote in an email. “Admission is free. You won’t want to miss it.”

Food and beverages will be served on the back “pickin’ patio” and attendees are invited to bring their own instruments to join in the jams led by the Taborgrass Players. There will also be outreach tables staffed by The Friends of Timberline, The Pacific Crest Trail Association, The Oregon Bluegrass Association and the U.S. Forest Service.

No dogs or picnic lunches are permitted. Musical performances run from 12:30 p.m. to sunset, rain or shine.

This year’s lineup includes:

Mountain Honey, at 12:30 p.m. A local favorite, their sweet and golden acoustic music inspired by traditional bluegrass, features driving banjo and high lonesome harmonies. The group is made up by Linda Leavitt (vocals, guitar, mandolin), Dee Johnson (vocals, bass), Greg Stone (vocals, guitar) and Mike Stahlman (vocals, banjo).

Kate Power and Steve Einhorn, at 1:15 p.m. The popular Portland folk duo have shared the stage with such folk luminaries as Pete Seeger and Tom Paxton. Their wholesome sound and entertaining performance features Kate’s award-winning songwriting, lovely harmonies, Steve’s dry humor, and their occasional forays into today’s ever-popular sound of the ukulele.

The Talbott Brothers, at 2:30 p.m. This dynamic duo has captured an enthusiastic audience with their harmonies, catchy melodies and fresh indie-folk sound. Nick and Tyler Talbott call Portland home, but are most often touring nationwide and are a popular draw on the summer festival circuit.

The Caleb Klauder Country Band, at 4 p.m. Another huge act from Oregon, the festival for years has received requests to bring this man to the festival. A founding member of the popular 90s band Calobo, and today’s widely celebrated Foghorn Stringband, Caleb’s band captures the timeless sound of classic country music and western swing.

Claire Lynch at 5:30 p.m. She will get you on your way home feeling like you are walking on air after such a great day of music. Claire Lynch, this year’s headliner, is an IBMA award winner (including female vocalist of the year) and a three-time Grammy nominee, the most recent nomination coming in 2017. She has been long praised as a creative force in acoustic music and is an exceptional songwriter and intensely soulful singer. Her excellent band and distinctive voice resonate with power, strength, and stage presence. Band members include Bryan McDowell (vocals, fiddle), Jim Hurst (bluegrass guitar), and Mark Schatz (bass).
