DoubleWide is a fun and folksy Americana duo based in Sisters, Oregon consisting of husband and wife team Sue and Rick Moore. Sue plays guitar, bass, and fiddle. Rick plays mandolin, guitar, and mandola. They weave their original music and cover tunes together with lots of traditional and soulful harmonies, and darn good pickin’.

Shorty & the Mustangs

Shorty & the Mustangs was formed in 1996. Big Tex called some of his musician friends to see if they wanted to try something new. Having grown up in Texas, western swing music was calling him home. So they dug out some old Bob Wills and Ernest Tubb records and gave it a shot. For the last 10 years the band has created original material with Mr’s Wills and Tubb as inspiration.

Josh Cole

Josh Cole has been playing bluegrass in the Pacific Northwest for over 25 years. It started in the late 90s when he first heard “Midnight Moonlight” from Old and In the Way. That moment forever bonded Josh to bluegrass music. He went on to serve as President of the Oregon Bluegrass Association and continues to host “Music From the True Vine” on KBOO-FM, the longest-running bluegrass show West of the Mississippi.
