“Tunes of the '60s and Beyond”

 
“Three Left Feet” is a trio made up of Michael Guthrie (Bass), Laurin Gaudinier (acoustic guitar/percussion) and Steve Peterson (electric guitar). They play a fun and danceable mix of Rhythm and Blues, Waltzes, and Pop tunes of the Sixties and beyond. Guitarist Peterson has been playing blues around Seattle for most of his life. Gaudinier has been a force in the Victory Music Community with her own finely crafted songs. Guthrie’s solid bass lines holds down the bottom and he usually takes out the trash and sweeps the floor.

Jim Portillo

Singer-Songwriter

 

Music has always been a part of my life, both when I was growing up and certainly now as an adult. There’s not a time I can remember when music hasn’t been a part of who I am. And though I may be just starting out as a performer, I’m certainly not a stranger to what is called Folk, Country, Bluegrass, and any other genre that fits into Americana music.

Jim Nason

Singer-Songwriter

 

If Leon Redbone and Mose Allison were joined at the knee, Jim Nason would be the result. Dubbed Seattle's Emergency Folksinger, Jim has been delighting audiences for years with his zany interpretations of life's more idiosyncratic characters. Jim is also a member of THE Other Band.

Laurie Katherine Carlsson

Singer-Songwriter
 

"I can't recall any sort of epiphany where I realized that music was my calling." Laurie Katherine Carlsson didn't start playing guitar until she was 21. "It sucked me in slowly. I picked up a guitar and learned to play an Indigo Girls song. I wrote some poetry and set it to music. I made the decision to go to music school - Berklee College of Music. I booked my first gig and scrambled to write more songs to fill out the set. I put out a record. I searched for bandmates, And one morning I woke up and knew that music was it for me."
