Once again we are bringing you a fantastic line up of musicians and bands, entertainment ranging from beautiful traditional tunes with harmonies to progressive Celtic Rock. The Entertainment Stage will have non-stop music all day Saturday. We bringing back some of your past favorites!
Rebecca Lomnicky and David Brewer
Performers David Brewer of the popular Celtic band Molly’s Revenge and International Fiddle Champion Rebecca Lomnicky perform captivating Scottish music which bridges the gap between the fiddle and bagpipe music of Scotland—two worlds united, into one heartfelt & rousing concert.
David and Rebecca have recently returned from Scotland living and studying in the Highlands, where they delved into the traditions of their respective instruments. They have forged their duo to create a new seamless sound which is both kinetic and full of passion. In their performance they explore a classic repertoire with ever-changing combinations of fiddle, bagpipes, guitar, bodhran, and penny-whistle.
Whiskey and Stitches
Irish-American Folk Rock bringing a vibrant folk tradition into a modern context. These guys are fun!
Traditional Irish and Scottish songs to jazz, country, reggae and rock and roll.
Traditional music featuring Celtic harp, violin,, accordion, tin-whistle and vocal harmonies.
Dram & Go
Fast and furious Celtic music on fiddle, lowland pipes, mandolin and bodhrán - with raw foot-stomping energy.
Founded in early 2014, Dram and Go has been busy exploring the intersection of Scottish piping, old-time fiddle, Irish ceili, bluegrass, and rock. The band is very pleased for the opportunity to perform at the Portland Highland Games a second time, and is looking forward to bringing the infectious combination of pipes, fiddle, and rhythm to venues throughout the region. Composed of veteran musicians and with a forward-facing repertoire, Dram & Go is poised to take Northwest audiences on a musical journey that they won’t soon forget. The band’s self-titled EP was released earlier this year.
Musicians who have performed at previous Portland Highland Games include:
Murder the Stout
Rose in the Heather
