1:15PM - KATE POWER & STEVE EINHORN

Next on stage at 1:15pm is the venerable and ever-popular Portland folk duo of Kate Power and Steve Einhorn. Dubbed “Quality Folk” for good reason, Kate and Steve have shared the stage with such folk luminaries as Pete Seeger and Tom Paxton. Their wholesome sound and entertaining performance features Kate’s award winning songwriting, lovely harmonies, Steve’s dry humor, and their occasional forays into today’s ever popular sound of the ukulele .

Watch & Listen

TALBOTT BROTHERS
2:30PM - TALBOTT BROTHERS

At 2:30pm the Talbott Brothers take the stage. This dynamic duo has captured an enthusiastic audience. They are known for their blood harmonies, catchy melodies, and fresh indie- folk sound. Originally from Nebraska, Nick and Tyler Talbott now call Portland home, but they are most often touring nationwide to large audiences, and are a very popular draw on the summer festival circuit. They will be playing as a quartet.

CALEB KLAUDER COUNTRY BAND
4PM - CALEB KLAUDER COUNTRY BAND

At 4:00pm we are visited by another huge act hailing from Oregon. For years we have gotten requests to bring this man to the Festival, so we are now thrilled to finally present the Caleb Klauder Country Band! A founding member of popular 90’s band Calobo and today’s widely celebrated Foghorn Stringband, Caleb’s Country Band captures the timeless sound of classic country music and Western swing. This is a full band that packs a punch and features Reeb Willms signing duet harmonies with Caleb.

Watch & Listen

CLAIRE LYNCH
5:30PM - CLAIRE LYNCH

Our headliner takes the stage at 5:30pm and plays till the sun sets. She will get you feeling like you are walking on air after such a great day of music in such a lovely setting. We are thrilled to present IBMA award winner (including female vocalist of the year) and three-time Grammy nominee, Claire Lynch!! Long praised as a creative force in acoustic music, Claire is an exceptional songwriter and an intensely soulful singer. Her excellent band and distinctive voice resonates with power, strength, and stage presence.

JONATHAN EDWARDS
PAST PERFORMERS

This is the 7th annual Timberline Mountain Music Festival! We hosted musicians from as close as Government Camp to as far away as Ireland. "I focus on presenting larger bands, and new, younger talent, folks who are out on tour and playing the summer festival circuit," says event organizer Jon Tullis, " Our festival is just a few days before the Sisters Folk Festival, so I often feature some of the artists who are headed that way. It’s a win/win for everyone, and I have been able to present some really tasty acts such as Nora Jane Struthers and the Party Line, Eli West and Cahalen Morrison, and the amazing quartet called Darlingside who went on to be named Folk Alliance Artist of the Year in 2016."
