Based out of Portland, OR, The Crow and the Canyon brings a breath of fresh air to the acoustic folk and bluegrass scene of the North West. Blending elements of traditional folk, country, chamber grass and rowdy string band music, they have been turning heads ever since their debut show at the Mississippi Studios. They are comprised of Ben Larsen on mandolin, guitar and fiddle; Austin Quattlebaum on banjo and guitar; Miles Berry on upright bass and Leigh Jones on ukulele. The diversity of the groups backgrounds adds character to the unique sound. With the vocal qualities of Larsen’s high and lonesome voice, and the gritty tones of Quattlebaums they could only be topped with the soaring harmonies of Jones that creates a mix that’ll make the hair stand up on the back of your neck.

While they might be new as a band, none of them are new to the stage. Ben Larsen has been a fixture in the Portland music scene for many years, known for his face melting virtuosity on the mandolin, fiddle and guitar. He has played big stages and festivals around the country with his former bands, The Giraffe Dodgers, Twisted Whistle and The Renegade Stringband.

Born and raised in Savannah, GA, Austin Quattlebaum's sound is tinged with southern low country marsh land blues. After living in the mountains of southern Appalachia for several years his sound became steeped in traditional bluegrass and old time music . He has toured all over the U.S. as a solo artist weaving 3 finger banjo, clawhammer and guitar. (www.austinquattlebaum.com)

Miles Berry has been a bass slapping fixture in the Santa Cruz music scene for years. Bringing his funky dance moves and rowdy bass lines to stages all over the West Coast with previous band, New World Ape, he dives in to the world of folk and acoustic upright bass head first.

Over the past three years, Leigh Jones has completed extensive solo tours throughout the US and abroad. Leigh's music evokes the spirit of city life, while allowing her southern roots to shine gloriously through. Leigh performs with the theatricality of a trained actor while her sweet melodies capture the soulfulness that is at the core of her songwriting. (www.leighjones.net)

Together they bring a dynamic blend of acoustic music to stages all over the country.
