Credited for igniting the Old Time Renaissance in Northwest, Foghorn Stringband continues to stand out as the shining gold standard for American Stringband music. Seven albums, thousand of shows and over a decade of touring under their belts, it’s no surprise they have two entirely new generations of old-time musicians following their lead. Through all of this, they’ve never let the music grow cold; instead they’ve been steadily proving that American Roots music is a never-ending well of inspiration. Today Foghorn Stringband features the intertwining harmonies of founding members, Stephen “Sammy” Lind, Caleb Klauder along with powerhouse vocalists, Reeb Willms and Nadine Landry, all of whom bring a wealth of songs, instruments and traditions making them a festival favorite from coast to coast and around the globe.
“Talk about a band that deserves more due. The Foghorn Stringband has quietly become one of the country’s longesttenured underground stringbands, releasing now 7 albums, playing thousands of shows…” -Saving Country Music
“[Foghorn Stringband} …is among the finest practitioners of American old-time music on the globe, a string band whose faithful renditions of songs from bygone decades are no less than living, breathing history.” -Ned Lannamann, The Portland Mercury
“The Foghorn Stringband play old-time American string-band music – and they play it with all the passion, warmth, bite and fire of an illicit spirit. And I’m here to tell you that their latest album Outshine the Sun is as close as you’ll get to treading the boards of genuine, smooth-distilled, double-rectified American roots music.” -Tom Franks, Folk Words
“Outshine the Sun is just about as authentic as it gets in terms of old time music. However, while the group sticks to traditional arrangements, the music still sounds fresh.” – John Goad, Bluegrass Today
“…exploring America’s blue highways and coming back with songs that have and will endure, some ever-present in our collective memory, some orphaned by time but always primed for adoption by loving practitioners such as these. Outshine the Sun? Could be an understatement.” -David McGee, Deep Roots
“They’re still the gold standard. Oldtime acoustic Americana music is exploding these days, and Foghorn is leading the charge without even trying to put their mark on it. You hear Foghorn, and you know it’s Foghorn. Face it, people. There’s Foghorn–and there’s everyone else.” -Stuart Mason, The Fiddlefreak
“This is the real deal. Honest and from the heart.” -John Bates, WTSR New Jersey
