Tractor Tavern Picture Round Up

December 9, 2009

On November 22nd, we went to the Tractor Tavern for Folklife Presents: Live from the 2009 Northwest Folklife Festival CD Release Party. Armstrong, Lawton and Katz, RedDog, Zoe Muth and Amateur Radio Operator played some great music and the Rockin’ Horse Dance Barn taught us how to do the two-step. All in all, it was a great evening. Lucky for us, Outreach Coordinator Daniel Atkinson was on hand to capture it all.

This Sunday at the Tractor Tavern: Zoe Muth

November 18, 2009

Zoe Muth

Zoe Muth: Guitar, harmonica, vocals

Zoe Muth’s twang is so authentic it’s hard to believe she was born and raised in Seattle. In passing, it may be easy to attribute the country factor to her exceptional mandolin player(Ethan Lawton) or the smooth and ever present pedal steel(Dave Harmonson). But truth be known, It’s her Dolly Partonesque lyricism and high sweet vocals which drive this record, clearing a place for Muth and her Lost High Rollers among some of the best up and coming interpreters of classic-style country music around. She nails the turning of a good clever country phrase withZoe Muth zero irony and infinite sincerity. Traces of her influences, from John Prine to the Louvin Brothers and Lucinda Williams are evident, but these songs are hardly derivative. Muth has a knack for writing tunes so true and familiar you feel like they’ve been around forever. If she keeps writing them like his, they will.  –Kim Ruehl

See Zoe this Sunday at the Tractor Tavern during our Live from the 2009 Northwest Folklife Festival CD Release Party. She joins Amateur Radio Operator, RedDog and Armstrong, Lawton and Katz for a rockin’ good time. So bring your dancing shoes and eight dollars to the Tractor at 7pm on Sunday. You won’t want to miss this show!
