Craig Bidondo Group (featuring Ollie McClay)
Craig & Ollie once again dish out their unique blend of soulful jazz, Motown, and French Chanson! Originally from Alaska, Craig moved to the Portland area in 1988. Now the father of two Corbett schoolchildren; his fresh jazz sound has been influenced by his years of playing not only jazz but also classical, rock, new age, and gospel music. McClay, in addition to a musician, is a true “Renaissance Man.” He cites a lifetime of employment ranging from the physical to the higher mental functions. As a horn player, singer and entertainer, his presentation is unescapable in its content and delivery. Visit their web site.

2:30 – 3:15 p.m.

With his imagination often dwelling in the very real places of his past and present, as well as in the possible future, McDougall’s songs may very well seat you by a coffee-can fire in the middle of a dry California river-bed, pull you up onto a freight train in the lush spring-time of the Pacific northwest, raise your voice in hymns with the entire family on a Thanksgiving afternoon, or haste your good-bye to civilization as you know it, as you ramble on with all you possess on your back. Fact, fiction, and a little in between, McDougall carries on the relevant tradition of oral history and folklore, making it a part of everyday life and sharing it with those around him. Inspired by the word of God, his family, friends, fellow workers and fellow travelers met along the way, McDougall wishes to keep to the unwritten rule of using what was left by those before while leaving something of your own for those who will come after.

4:00 p.m. – 4:45 p.m.

Matthew Lindley
Americana/Rock with a harder edge when it needs it and softer touch when that’s necessary. Strong storytelling backed up by tight musicianship. A party band with a rootsy vibe. Lindley has performed throughout the Pacific Northwest for much of the last decade. His ever-growing popularity has earned him the opportunity to play some of the area’s most respected venues (The Doug Fir, The Aladdin) and open for national acts such as Blues Traveler, Son Volt and The Mother Hips. In 2009, the song “The Parting Gift” received radio airplay and was featured on 101.9 KINK FM’s local compilation CD. Lindley has three albums to his credit. His first, Farther From Running Away, was released in 2006. In 2010, Lindley released Live At Overlook Park, a live EP that captures not only his songwriting ability but also the power and energy of his live performance. In 2012 Lindley released his most recent full-length, Paper Lion. Visit the web site.

4:45 p.m.

The National Anthem
The National Anthem will be performed by Erica and Tommy Daniels. Gresham Community Choir member Erica Daniels and her brother, former American Idol contestant, Tommy Daniels will grace us with their voices once again.

Franz Sanger (Fiddle) joined in 2010, and recently Larry Wise (Pedal-Steel Guitar) has been playing with us. Countryside Ride has also had many guest musicians, and up to 8 or 9 people on stage with them. You just never know who might show up! With a repertoire of over 200 Classic Country, Honky-tonk, Western Swing, and Dance hall Favorites as well as an impressive batch of original tunes Countryside Ride can play all night long, then, come back next and do a completely different show! This is a true “Honky-tonk Band.” Web Site: http://countrysideride.com/

6:15 p.m. – 6:45 p.m.

Scott Poole
Scott Poole, house poet for Live Wire! radio, is the author of three books of poetry, The Cheap Seats, Hiding from Salesmen and, most recently, The Sliding Glass Door which will be released in the Fall of 2011 from Colonus Publishing. He also was the founding director of Get Lit!, the Spokane, Washington book festival, and Wordstock, the Portland book festival. Currently he is a software developer by day and poet by night.

7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Tango Alpha Tango
Tango Alpha Tango makes exactly the kind of rock ’n’ roll I can get behind; it’s sweeping, dramatic and unapologetically evil at the most surprising of moments. Tango Alpha Tango tempers its pop leanings with an aggressiveness that adds a pleasant layer of grime beneath the shine of the group’s top-notch production and ass-tight songwriting. What comes out of this aesthetic pairing is gorgeous and engaging in a way that fully exploits this unity of opposites. Web Site: http://www.tangoalphatango.com/

8:15 – 8:45 p.m.

Lauren Steele
Jefferson High School student and 2012 PPS Verselandia Poetry Slam winner Lauren Steele will bring her mix of spoken word and singing to our stage.
