Caleb Klauder and Stephen “Sammy” Lind began playing music together in 2000 in Portland, Oregon. They have performed traditional American Old-Time music all over the globe with their band the Foghorn Stringband, also with banjo/vocalist Riley Baugus and multi-instrumentalist/ composer Dirk Powell. In 2004, Caleb and Sammy collaborated with world-renowned Irish fiddler Kevin Burke for a concert series held on the Oregon Coast. Sometimes you can catch them on drums and bass with Balfa Toujours.
As a duo they have been performing weekly at a winery near Portland since 2003, switching between guitar, mandolin, fiddle, banjo, and vocals. Their vocals are simple and honest, with intertwining harmonies similar to the Carter Family and Stanley Brothers. Although their repertoire is mainly traditional, Caleb’s stellar original songs and tunes fit right in next to any classic.
