Y’all like to hear about great new bands, right? Well here’s one you might want to pay attention to: Crow and the Canyon. You might not have heard of this band yet, but you probably know some of its members: Ben Larsen (guitar, mandolin, fiddle – formerly a member of Giraffe Dodgers, Twisted Whistle, Renegade String Band), Austin Quattlebaum (banjo and guitar), and relatively new Portland transplants Miles Berry (upright bass) and Leigh Jones (ukelele). With a group of musicians this seasoned, you know this band is going places. The folky, grassy group features gorgeous three-part harmonies and some great foot-stompin’ tunes, and they’ve been touring their way around the West Coast for the past few weeks. Check them out this Monday, October 13, where they’ll be headlining at the Doug Fir Lounge in Portland!
Here is the debut of Crow and the Canyon’s latest video, a performance of their song “Golden Chains” (written by Ben Larsen and featuring Leigh Jones’ soulful, beautiful vocals) on the balcony of the Crazy Horse Saloon in Nevada City, CA. Check it out!
Crow and the Canyon will play at the Doug Fir Lounge on Monday, October 13. Tickets are $8 – $10 and can be purchased here. 21+
