Brandon Scott Sellner

Guitarist Brandon Scott Sellnerís stinging licks may sound like he grew up in the nightclubs and after-hours juke joints of Austin, TX, but the fast-fingered performer originally hails from a small town of less than 5,000 called Sleepy Eye, MN. He plays a polished, blues-infused brand of electric guitar, heavily influenced by guys like Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix. Sellner himself is more in the vein of John Mayer and Jonny Lang, with his catchy vocal hooks and sometimes-sensitive lyrics.
Now making his home in St. Paul, MN, Sellner is currently at work on a second release and has been playing an extended string of shows during his recent trips in the South. He is also working to get his first album Brandon Scott Sellner re-released on a larger scale. This April, Sellner won the 2009 Minnesota Blues challenge and he advances to represent the State of Minnesota in the International Blues Challenge held in Memphis in 2010.
 
 
 

Clumsy Lovers

This happy-go-lucky Vancouver quintet expertly walk the tightrope between tradition-minded roots music ("Raging bluegrass Celtic rock," a reviewer once said) and sparkling modern pop. The band has long felt at home on any stage, whether in front of 50 raucous patrons at a roadhouse or thousands of music-lovers at a festival or concert hall.
There couldn't have been a better choice of acts to close out the Porcupine Mountain Music  Festival. This group had the crowd out of their seats ad dancing at the foot of the stage. The group played some songs selected to entertain all the children that came to the festival
