Mo Phillips writes kids songs from his secret ninja laboratory in the Portland, Oregon. In the old days, Mo played crazy jazz and psychedelic math rock on three continents to much acclaim. Mo grew up recreating Neil Young and the Rolling Stones in his bedroom, and after some university years trying (unsuccessfully) to cross D. Boon with John Coltrane, he fell back into his classic rockin' ways. It has been said that Mo's album Train Beard sounds like Black Francis joined Wilco to make a kids album.

Argentina-born Fernando Viciconte came of age musically in L.A. fronting the popular hard rock band Monkey Paw. He moved to Portland, OR, in 1994 and released Season in Hell, a downbeat collection of country rock, in 1996. This is Fernando's first time playing our Lavender Festival and we are all so excited!
I am 19 years old, I started writing poetry as a
child and once I learned piano and guitar, poetry turned into songwriting. I am
a cancer survivor, and although I was young I feel like it makes me look at life
with a different perspective. I feel lucky to be alive and lucky to get to share
my art with people. I grew up on a farm, riding horses and competing at horse
My music is very lyrically driven, inspired by strong women artists like Valerie June, Anna Tivel, and Brandie Carlile. I will tell you stories about all the magic things in life, the stars, the moon, love, loss, and how its okay to a be a little bit broken. If anything, you’ll leave feelin' like you know my whole life story, and hopefully with something sweet on your mind.
We are a group of Mt.Hood Locals that play a variety of genres that we all know and love with a twist of Bluegrass, Jazz, and Rock n' Roll flavor.
