Wooden Sleepers is a dynamic folk band based in Portland, Oregon. They have been writing and performing in numerous styles and configurations over the years and are available to perform anything from all-acoustic traditional folk sound for weddings and festivals to full on electric folk/rock for more traditional venues, always with a twist of soul.

Since his debut, he has been performing all over the Pacific Northwest at festivals, wineries, and traditional venues and has published a song for the town of Jawbone Flats.

WOLF & MOON
Rooted in the craft of living folk tradition, Heather Wolf & Nik Moon take us on a journey transcending the mind to enter deep caverns of soul. With such instruments as the mountain dulcimer & mandolin, melodies passed through many hands & hearts, and a fermented lyric well-aged, their songs allure, soothe, entrance, and in this time of grim design allow us to feel, to hear our daemon’s call, to remember our ancient human stories. Gracefully sharing the lead while weaving harmonies rich and raw, Wolf & Moon together hold a space for our wild selves to run free.
