Celtic Community Night with Biddy on the Bench
We're thrilled to welcome local Portland band Biddy on the Bench as our featured ensemble for the month of December. These lads have made a name for themselves with their heartfelt ballads, rousing instrumentals, and fine woolen apparel. You won't want to miss this special opportunity to hear them on Artichoke's stage. After their performance they will lead a traditional music and song session open to all instruments, ages, and ability levels.

Biddy on the Bench
The versatile combination of banjo, guitar, mandolin, tin whistle and four part vocal harmony lends itself equally to high-energy Irish rebel songs and shanties, lively session tunes, and mournful gaelic ballads. Grounded primarily in the folk/traditional style of Irish music pioneered by such bands as "The Dubliners", "Planxty", and "The Bothy Band", Portland's own "Biddy on the Bench" breathes life and authenticity into old standbys of the genre and lesser-known tunes alike.

In the winter months of 2013, Biddy on the Bench was formed. The members include Kevin Grgurich, Nick Frey, Noah Cotter, Casey Dyer, Tristan Cormack, and Trevor Cormack. Hailing from Cleveland, Ohio, Kevin, Nick, Tristan, and Trevor have been playing music together for close to a decade. Noah and Casey are Oregon natives and bring with them years of experience with Irish music. Together, Biddy on the Bench approaches each song, each melody, with a passion for the music and sharing it with others.
