Grateful Bluegrass Boys is a string band that plays traditional Bluegrass versions of Classic Rock favorites from bands such as the Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, The Eagles, Rolling Stones and more.
These songs, combined with classic Bluegrass and Country tunes, consistently have audiences singing and dancing along the whole show.

The Real Sarah's
The Real Sarah's
With organic harmonies that enchant and uplift the spirit, The Real Sarahs share their special gift of vocal synergy. Embracing many genres of music, you are likely to hear threads of folk, blues, and country running through their songs. Singing from the stories of their own life journeys and experiences, their original music is honest, evocative, and heartfelt.

Introduced by a mutual friend in 2010, Sarah ‘Songbird’ Larkin and Sarah Ryan have been nearly inseparable, musically, since. As founding members of Motherland Family Band in 2011, these ladies began to sculpt their original songs into tightly woven harmonic collaborations. Larkin and Ryan struck out on their own as a duo in 2012 and The Real Sarahs was born. They recorded their first EP CD together in 2013, demonstrating each in their capacity to lead and support and embody beauty through song.

As neighbors in a tight knit musical community, it was inevitable that Sarah Rose would find her way to The Real Sarahs. ‘Rosie’ is an accomplished local performer who had admired the work of the duo. Her first solo EP, Lay My Burden Down’ was released in 2016. Her strengths as a singer/songwriter, harmony singer and cellist made her a natural fit. The ladies jumped into re-arranging their repertoire for three parts and started performing together in October 2016.

With extreme gratitude for the gift of music given them, The Real Sarahs offer back their gifts with open hearts and truth of purpose. These women seek to inspire, uplift and entertain their audiences with songs that speak to the heart of the human experience. With humility and humor The Real Sarahs offer their REAL selves to the world as the women of song that they were born to be. Currently residing in Mendocino County California, The Real Sarahs enjoy performing in their local area and throughout the Northwest. They aim to do more regional and national touring in time.
