20th Century Country

Ken Burns' latest docuseries takes a look back at the earlier days of country music
The genre of country music has gone through a lot of changes since its earliest inception, growing to reach the masses. While it isn't the most popular genre in the U.S. today, its stars are held in the highest esteem among fans—and the pioneers of country are essentially icons.

Artist Fact Sheet: Keith Harkin

The Irishman brings his well-rounded abilities to Bend
Keith Harkin is the type of artist whose blend of rock music is able to appease a lot of different people. So even if you weren't familiar with his tunes before reading this article, I'd say his show at The Domino Room is definitely worth checking out.

Totally Worth It

The artists you might not know, but need to see at the 2019 Sisters Folk Festival
It's that time of the year again: the Sisters Folk Festival is back and ready to deliver a heaping amount of music. With such a great lineup that spreads across the town of Sisters, it can be hard to properly divvy up your time, and you might miss something that would have been worth knowing about.

A look back at a few of music’s gems from August
Not to be harsh or anything, but summer is almost over, guys. That means we need to fill our lives with plenty of summertime bops and play them on repeat until it's officially over.

Having Each Other's Backs

Country music has plenty of big names—many dominating the charts for quite some time. If you aren't one to dig into the genre, you might be missing out on a lot of different music or players in the game.

Bluegrass & Podcasts

The former front man of Nickel Creek is paving new ground
Sean Watkins has been playing music for a long time. From starting Nickel Creek when he was 12, playing variety type shows with the Watkins Family Hour and now moving out into solo projects, Watkins has definitely made the rounds, with each stop leaving an impression that has helped him grow.

Four Favorites: "Big D.O.L.L.A."

Damian Lillard, aka Dame D.O.L.L.A, is blessing our ears this offseason with his third album
When he isn't busy hitting bigtime buzzer beaters over Paul George, or being a father, you can probably find Damian Lillard in the studio rapping his a** off. The Portland Trail Blazers' starting point guard now officially has three albums under his belt with the release of his latest effort, "Big D.O.L.L.A."

Banding Together

Musicians in the Central Oregon scene join forces to throw a two-night music festival
There's an abundance of good music coming out of Central Oregon. You might not always find it if you don't know where to look (our calendar helps)—but that's part of the reason local bands are taking matters into their own hands with a new festival hosted at the Volcanic Theatre Pub.

"The Scene is what You Make It"

A High Desert Underground Q&A with the Roof Rabbits' Johnny Bourbon
One of the main players behind the High Desert Underground Music Fest is the Roof Rabbits' Johnny Bourbon. You can catch this trio of rockers performing on night two of the festival, for what is sure to be a high-octane affair.

Artist Fact Sheet: Trevor Hall

The singer/songwriter is set to play with the John Butler Trio at The Athletic Club
With a certain affinity for the deeper meanings and connections in life, Trevor Hall has been making music for others in that same boat since he was 16. Reading through many of his interviews, Hall makes it clear he doesn't consider his music a career, or doesn't look at music as work; it's something Hall does just for himself.
