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

Come hear the Cranberry Bog Bluegrass Band for some toe-tappin’ fun and the plaintive sound of bluegrass, Americana music and a few surprises that will knock your socks off in three-part harmonies, duets & 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; Debbie Zick provides rhythm and lead  breaks with her mandolin; country boy Dave Holley weighs in on his five-string banjo and Dobro; and South Whidbey musical legend Alex Bonesteel makes his fiddle sing. 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

It’s a busy life for songwriter and farmer NATHANIEL TALBOT, who runs an organic vegetable farm and seed company on Whidbey Island, in Washington State’s Puget Sound. When not out cultivating onions on his solar-powered tractor, he’s inside cultivating songs that are rooted in the earth and American traditionalism. “Working in agriculture, while often physically and emotionally tiring, also provides the mental space and quietude for songs to be sown and nourished,” says Talbot. Nathaniel Talbot’s music has dirt under its fingernails, the product of decades of hard work and crafting – retuning, replanting, and retelling. The result is true American roots music that combines the soulful edge of tradition with the Pacific Northwest’s legacy of freedom and innovation. His fifth album, Animal, released September 2018 on AWAL, marks his most ambitious and personal crop of songs to date.
