This is not your grandparents' folk music. From Portland, Oregon the Bridge City Sinners take old folk songs and original tunes in the direction of a punk rocker. They are a revolving cast of characters, banjos, clarinets, washboards, bass guitars, violins, and boot stompin' fever. Toxic Toast records will be pressing their Debut album on Vinyl in early 2018.
Lead singer Libby Lux and upright bass player Scott Michaud infrequently started playing music together on the streets of Portland, Oregon over six years ago. They would meet up without rehearsal nor a plan with other various street musicians to sing at passer byers. Years before that, on their separate journeys, they traveled, hitch-hiked, and howled at the moon across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. In hobo fashion, they earned what they’d eat and roofs over their heads by the papers and coins tossed into their hat.
Through their years of wandering, they were able to pick up a rich catalog of songs passed through the traveling / busking community. In 2012, their mutual best friend and lead singer of folk-punk band Profane Sass, passed away when he fell off a train in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In a way the Bridge City Sinners are a homage to keep his spirit alive and continue passing along the music they all sang together on the streets, hidden in trains, and in living rooms across the continent. They formed the Bridge City Sinners in start of 2016.
They now have jobs; they now have stable living quarters. They plan on playing a few local festivals and touring in the Summer of 2018.
