ABOUT POLECAT (http://www.polecatmusic.com/)
Known for high energy, interactive live performances, Polecat is built to deliver a show you won't soon forget. Formed 2010 in Bellingham WA, Polecat features Karl Olson (drums), Jeremy Elliott (electric guitar and vocals), Aaron Guest (vocals and 12-string guitar), Cayley Schmid (fiddle), and Richard Reeves (upright bass). Their instrumentation and song arrangements enable a seamless blend various genres including bluegrass, country, Celtic, rock, reggae, and world music into their sound.
Polecat fast-tracked its presence in the NW music scene, producing a self-titled EP in 2010, a full-length album 'Fire on the Hill' in 2011, (awarded 'What's Up' magazines best local album!), and the 2013 release of 'Fathoms'. Along the way Polecat has sharpened it's nails by performing over 500 shows in the last five years and shared the stage with nationally acclaimed acts such as Sam Bush, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, The Infamous Stringdusters, Trampled by Turtles, Greensky Bluegrass, and many more.
ABOUT JAKE NANNERY (http://www.jakenannery.com/)
Raised in the shadows of mountains of the Great Northwest, Jake began quenching his wanderlust at a young age, traveling the world and playing shows across the US, Europe, and New Zealand. At his core, Jake is a traveling storyteller whose music reflects themes of introspection, loss, love, longing and redemption. Jake's rich baritone vocals, natural stage presence, and lively performances has been impressing audiences for years. He's impressed us as a former performer at M-bibe events. We're psyched to welcome him back ~ no doubt you will be too!
ABOUT THE VIRGINIA V (http://www.virginiav.org/)
One of only 2 functioning steamships in the nation, the Virginia V made her maiden voyage from Elliott Bay to Tacoma On June 11, 1922. She continued making this voyage almost daily until 1938 as one of Seattle's Mosquito fleet, a loosely associated group of vessels that moved passengers and goods around the Puget Sound and nearby local waterways. While the days of the Mosquito have passed, the Virginia V provides a window into times past and the Steamer Virginia V Foundation continues to serve the public by providing public excursions, private charters, and visits to local maritime festivals throughout Puget Sound.
