The Last Revel
The Last Revel
From the budding music scene of the Upper Midwest comes the cutting edge Front Porch Americana soundscapes of The Last Revel. This powerfully talented trio of multi-instrumentalists from Minneapolis, Minnesota so naturally blends the genres of Folk, Rockabilly, Old Time String-Band and Rock to create a sound that is as equally original as it is timeless. The Last Revel trio utilizes their multi-instrumental abilities to bring the acoustic guitar, upright bass, fiddle, 5-string banjo, harmonica, kick drum and three-part vocal harmonies together to consistently deliver "Bombastic live performances," as well as delicate and haunting folk ballads.

With their second, self titled, album released in May of 2015, The Last Revel further demonstrates their ability to create rich and delicately textured recorded material with a modern "tip of the hat" to the storied history of American folk music.
The Crow and the Canyon
The Crow and the Canyon
"Crow & The Canyon are a band with a future. They have a good look, they’re affable and easy-going on stage and the most important thing, (obviously) they sound tremendous.

All of the signifiers of a fantastic night of pickin’ were there: sad songs, drinking songs, dancing songs and of course: heartbreak songs. Austin Quattlebaum, Ben Larsen and Leigh Jones are all accomplished vocalists and players in their own right, but when on stage together they meld into something transfixing. The group went from rowdy, old school drinking numbers where they traded lines and harmonized wonderfully, to slower numbers were Jones played siren to every wistful (wishful?) single fella in the audience.

Featuring a Portland music scene vet in Ben Larsen, an Appalachia-via-Savannah, GA Southerner in Austin Quattlebaum, a bassist who cut his teeth in Santa Cruz’s funk scene in Miles Berry and Leigh Jones, an NYU-educated ukulele player, The Crow & The Canyon’s lineup is quite a bit more diverse than most. It’s also a very Portland lineup, as part of what makes this wonderful city so amazing is the fact that it serves as a beacon for creative types to come together in an environment conducive to producing art. I can’t help but postulate that such a varied background has something to do with the “it” that TC&TC have in spades."
