Waterfront Beer Garden


 

Music at Musselfest is (almost) as big of a tradition as the mussels, themselves.  At the Waterfront Beer Garden, we have a great lineup of local and regional talent ready to help you have some fun!

The garden will feature live music, locally crafted brews and wine, and crackling bonfires. Hosted by Coupeville Historic Waterfront Association.

11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. — Cranberry Bog

The five members of the band Cranberry Bog.

Come hear the Cranberry Bog Bluegrass Band for some toe-tappin’ fun and the plaintive sound of bluegrass and Americana music plus a few surprises that will knock your socks off in three-part harmony, duets and solos.

All the favorite bluegrass instruments are there for this (mostly) Whidbey Island bluegrass band: Ken Merrell brings that high lonesome sound with his guitar and vocals; country boy Dave Holley weighs in on his five-string banjo and Dobro; South Whidbey music legend Alex Bonesteel makes his fiddle sing; Debbie Zick  provides rhythm and lead breaks with her mandolin; Southern girl Linda Rae Dobbs hails from Fidalgo Island and crosses the bridge every week to play bass with the band and sing vocals.

1:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. – Original Jim

Original Jim is a “Solo Band” Musical Project from Northwest Performing Songwriter and Coupeville Local, Jim Castaneda. Forged from Vocal Jazz and A Cappella, and honed on pop, rock and blues in the shadow of the Seattle scene, Jim sets up a solid foundation for his tunes with creative arrangements, tasty improvisation, strong vocals, rhythmic guitars, a little keyboard and a unique way to groove.

4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. – Nathaniel Talbot Trio

Raised in the wooded foothills southeast of Portland, OR, the big firs and wide farmscapes of childhood made a life-long impression on Talbot’s 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 earned him a distinct place in the northwest folk scene. His lately incarnation goes full-electric, featuring island locals Keegan Harshman on bass and Andrew Dorsett on drums, fusing Talbot’s folk-roots approach to storytelling with more contemporary elements of R&B, prog and indie-rock.

“Challenging what folk music is capable of, Talbot’s powerful, uplifting voice harnesses a country twang complemented by lush acoustic finger-picking and a violin that feels like it was birthed next to a babbling brook in the mountains” – SEATTLE WEEKLY

11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. – Jess

Singer Songwriter Jessica “Jess” Drugge and her wife Marci Hastings, moved to Coupeville from West Seattle in December 2017. “I grew up on Vashon Island, and Whidbey instantly felt like home.” Jess’ performances are a mixture of originals and covers. Recently described as Coffeeshop Rock-Acoustic, Jess has carefully handcrafted her originals. “Each song has a message. It’s very rewarding when something I’m singing catches someone’s ear, and causes them to stop and listen for a moment, even in the midst of the crowd.”
