[BLUEGRASS] Pickin' and grinnin' galore fill the classy-but-cozy Alberta Rose's stage this weekend. Friday night kicks off with local bands Stumbleweed and Wayward Vessel, Washington old-time duo Cahalen Morrison & Eli West and headlining local roots great Caleb Klauder's Country Band. Saturday afternoon features a workshop with banjo master Danny Barnes of the Bad Livers and one with the Chick Rose School—think School of Rock, bluegrass style. The Chick Rose kids lead off the evening's festivities, also featuring Sugar Pine, Portland faves Jackstraw and great Tony Furtado-Scott Law collab Banjo Killers, closing with the duo of Barnes and another longtime roots warrior, Nick Forster of Hot Rize fame. Following a Sunday morning (well, early afternoon, but that's morning for musicians) gospel brunch and performance by the Bluegrass Regulators come the dulcet three-part harmonies of the ladies of Calico Rose, Western swingers Barn Door Slammers, an encore by Barnes and Forster and a fest-closing set by Nashville's Jim Lauderdale, perhaps best known for singing those perfect harmonies on Lucinda Williams' Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, but a truly masterful songwriter himself. Weekend passes as well as tickets to individual shows are available.
