Rooted in the country tradition, but not confined to it -- from country-soul and bluegrass to gritty 60‘s & 70‘s roots-rock with future-forward original lyrics and avant-garde arrangements of time-honored classics. Showcasing Steve Moore (lap steel, banjo and backing vocals), the group leans heavy into bone-chilling three-part harmonies with Christine McAllister (bass, and backing vocals), Don Lawry (drums), all guided by Amanda’s dreamy electric guitar and smoky, commanding voice.

****A Portland Revels Event****
It’s our 25th year, and ghosts will return to haunt the stage during Portland’s annual Christmas Revels performance as we inhabit Haddon Hall, the setting for the original Christmas Revels! This year’s performance transports us back to an imaginary day when the Duke, his wife and his children enter the castle after two centuries of presumed emptiness, expecting to demolish it, only to find it inhabited by the spirits of all those who have ever celebrated the winter solstice within its walls.
