Soulsapiens

Old Dog

 

Old Dog is a Humboldt County acoustic band in its 19th year of playing and writing music together. Their sound is usually described as “Folk/Americana” with strong Bluegrass and Old Timey tendencies. Developing original music from early on, the quintet shares true stories of freight hopping and the highway, ballads of love and family both lost and found, upbeat instrumentals, and some irreverent, rowdy renderings.

Raising Grain

Emerging from the hazy Humboldt fog comes a new band of unshaven rag tag ruffians, Raising Grain. With over 80 years of combined life and hard living Raising Grain has come to throw down a mix of originals and covers. A Bluegrass power trio, combining traditional and progressive Bluegrass, Raising Grain has come to make you dance and maybe, just maybe, make you think.... Steeped in mystery and myth some say they are neither man nor beast but rather a combination of oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, and phosphorus but we'll let you decide. You can find Raising Grain playing your favorite local Arcata area bars and breweries. You can also find Raisin Grain at your local grocery store in the cereal isle between the Grape Nuts and Kashi and remember, it would take over 20 bowls of Raisin Brain to equal the nutritional value of just ONE bowl of Raisin Grain.
Bon Appetit

Claire Bent

 

A local musician who grew up singing in church, and gospel choir, and alone in her car, Claire Bent loves performing jazz partly because of how spontaneous it is.  She reveres the improvisational skills of greats such as Ella Fitzgerald and Miles Davis and always enjoys getting creative, and occasionally weird with her voice.  She has had the privilege of playing with some of Humboldt's finest musicians and she is delighted to be sharing the Homebrewfest stage with her insanely talented friend Aber Miller.
