Darren Senn 6-8PM

Visiting singer/songwriter from Eugene, currently living In Lake Tahoe.

Darren Senn thrives on engaging his audiences with simple, well-crafted songs and the stories that brought them to life. Through his songwriting journey, he has learned the most precious lesson: brutal honesty is the only way.

His often melancholy humor is balanced with plenty of keen insight, ripe with colorful anecdotes and revealing admissions of his shortcomings and how he moves past them with whatever grace he may stumble upon.

Citing influences like Townes Van Zandt and John Prine, Senn says, “I've learned how to honor my heroes, by taking my favorite bits and pieces from each to season my own songs. I see the importance of knowing who and what came before you, and that you don't need to re-invent the wheel, you just put your own spin on it.

Bill Powers 6-8PM

Bill Powers is an award winning singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, Radio DJ, music instructor and band leader. Born and raised in Mississippi Bill cut his teeth in the Colorado acoustic music scene fronting the highly popular old timey bluegrass band Sweet Sunny South-- along the way he and his wife, bassist Shelley Gray started Honey Don't as a side project that eventually bloomed into their full-time music project. The Couple uprooted from Colorado's Western Slope in 2014 and found their way to Bend, Oregon where they've inserted themselves rather quickly into the NW music scene. For this run Bill is touring solo sharing original songs and tunes on guitar, mandolin and banjo-spinning yarns through song that stand as a culmination of his southern roots, twenty some odd years touring and raising a family. His voice and laid back delivery of some truly exceptional songs are refreshing and comfortable.

I have creatively explored music very deeply in my life, and I see no end in the amount of musical wisdom to be gained and understood. It is a real treat for me to be able to share my musical expression with people that are open and willing.”

Crazy Mountain Billies 6-8PM

Crazy Mountain Billies is the alias used by multi-instrumentalist musician and vocalist Andy "Banjo" Bormes . His musical style can be described as psychedelic mountain bluegrass music. Originally formed in the Rocky Mountains in 2009, the alias "Crazy Mountain Billies" was used by the musician in the studio while multi-track recording a full ensembles worth of instruments together to get the sound of a full string-band. "Banjo" Andy has drifted up and down the Rockies writing songs about the mountain lifestyle over the years, and has now taken on the Pacific Northwest in pursuit of new adventures. The artist currently tours all over the Western U.S. performing at festivals and venues on a regular basis.

"I can say with absolute certainty that I have rarely heard anything quite like the Crazy Mountain Billies... the playing is exceptional... all of the elements of Bluegrass, but without being classifiable as being part of that genre..." 
- American Roots UK


 "One-man lineup works for his brand of bluegrass... his songs overflow with real melodies on multiple instruments. His unique vocals are worthy of praise."
-Big Western Flavor


“… the one-man-band better known as Crazy Mountain Billies, is a force of nature on the banjo!”
Ayliah Sanders - Rapid City Cultural Trends Examiner


"Crazy Mountain Billies are just crazy, man. Crazy ..."

The Bradley Parsons Project 6-8PM

Bradley has been performing solo acoustic material since 2015, but is just now releasing the first of many album under the title "The Bradley Parsons Project". The name was coined by a mentor when he was just beginning to learn music and it always stuck. 

His solo material is much more subdued than Corner Gospel Explosion or Wilderness. The songs are stripped down to bare bones, featuring only his voice and a guitar. The simplicity makes way for thoughtful and heart tugging lyrics about life, death, love and the meaning of it all. In August of 2018 he released "Look", a 4 song EP dedicated to all four of the previously mentioned topics.
