Identical twins Laurie Shook (vocals, banjo, percussion and beatboxing) and Katelyn Shook (vocals, guitar and mandolin), are at the heart of the quirky folk band, Shook Twins. A revolving cast of musicians round out the band and include Kyle Volkman (bass), Niko Daoussis (bass, mandolin, guitar), and Anna Tivel (fiddle). The Shook Twins intertwine gorgeous “twin” harmonies with an eclectic and eccentric blend of folk, roots, pop and fun. But don’t be fooled. The Shook Twins are not your average folk group. They have a few tricks up their sleeves. Laurie may drop a beatbox in the middle of a song, while Katelyn plays the guitar, glockenspiel, mandolin, and sings into a telephone and bocks like a chicken. Laurie plays wah-wah banjo and loops various melodies and beats to make it sound like more than just two identical twin sisters. It’s a refreshing romp filled with unexpected surprises.

Blvd Park is a Seattle based alt-folk band. An eclectic group of performers, drawing inspiration from folk, rock, Americana, country, and jazz. Renowned for their dynamic song-writing and thrilling live performances, with a lineup including upright bass, banjo, guitar, trumpet, mandolin, snare, rotating vocal leads, and complex three to five part harmonies.

Pocket Panda is a Seattle-based “Indie-Dance-Folk” band that started out as a young bear cub trying to perpetuate a nearly extinct population deep in the mountains of China… They incorporate diverse musical elements including both electric and acoustic instrumentation, and contrasting feelings, such as sentimentality juxtaposed with reflections on modern day challenges. This is a EP release show for "Find Yourself A Stranger."
