The Pork Pies are a group of seasoned Bay Area musicians who love to play rippin' old-time music and call square dances. They play at clubs, festivals, and private events wherever there's a desire for a good old time. Members are Amy Hofer and Jordan Ruyle on fiddle, Erik Pearson on banjo, Dan Kluger on guitar, and Megan Adie on bass.


Evie Ladin is a musician, dancer, square dance caller, singer, and songwriter with a lifetime of experience in traditional American cultural arts. With The Stairwell Sisters, all-gal old-time teardown, she tours internationally, performing traditional and original material on clawhammer banjo, vocals, clogging and hambone. With Crosspulse, multi-cultural music and dance ensembles, she performs rhythm-based works, bringing her Appalachian skills to collaborations with a variety of other cultural arts, including other styles with roots in the African Diaspora. With her solo project she is debuting her original songs - her new CD "Float Downstream" is officially released February 25 at the Freight & Salvage.

Evie will also be playing with The Stairwell Sisters at the Freight & Salvage on the opening night of the Festival, February 12th. More info and tickets...

And leading an old-time harmony singing workshop on February 20th!
