On Stage at the Skagit River Salmon Festival

Caspar Babypants | 11:15 a.m.
Peter Ali
Enjoy fun family tunes with Caspar Babypants (a.k.a. Chris Ballew from The Presidents of the United States of America). Caspar makes music for the very small and their parents that is simple fantastical stories and sing along songs.

Industrial Revelation | 12:10 p.m.
Paula Boggs Band
D’Vonne Lewis (Drums), Evan Flory-Barnes (Bass), Josh Rawlings (Keys) & Ahamefule J. Oluo (Trumpet), Industrial Revelation is a supergroup that defies convention. They’re jazz, they’re postjazz, they’re neo-soul, they’re rock ’n’ roll, but most importantly, they are masters of creating passionate music.

Lewis descends from multiple generations of serious musicians; Oluo has played with Hey Marseilles; Flory-Barnes, who has composed symphonies, recorded with Macklemore; and Rawlings has toured with Allen Stone and Macklemore. Their live shows are sweat-inducing jams with big horn crescendos, rapid bass solos, lightning strikes of keys and rolling-thunder drums.
Sardis Wildlife Center: 12:30, 2:30 & 4:30 p.m.
The Sardis Wildlife Center presents the Hunters of the Sky raptor show with an introduction to birds of prey. It’s a chance to see these magnificent birds up close and learn about their natural history, species identification, environmental issues and the roles raptors play in our watershed.
The Sweet Goodbyes | 1:50 & 3:55 p.m.
Jason Dodson
Amber Darland and Lisa Harmon have been performing individually throughout the Pacific Northwest for many years. In the spring of 2015, the two Bellingham based singer-songwriters discovered a kindred voice in each other and decided to launch the folk duo The Sweet Goodbyes. This collaboration has revealed strength beyond the sum of its parts. With intricate melodies, weaving harmonies and lyrics that are both political and deeply personal, The Sweet Goodbyes offer their audiences a chance to witness something rare. Amber Darland and Lisa Harmon wear their hearts on their sleeves and together their voices blend flawlessly. You can't help but feel good when you watch this duo perform live. The Sweet Goodbyes are full of charm and talent - sure to prick the ears and put a shiver up the spine.

EntreMundos Quarteto| 2:30 p.m.
EntreMundos Quarteto is an electrifying Seattle-based band who bring to the stage an uplifting and kinetic mix of deep Brazilian roots flavored with world rhythms—a deft blending of funk, jazz and soul melding with the classic sounds of samba and bossa nova.

EntreMundos means “between worlds,” and the group’s mélange of seductive sounds embodies their name, stirring a personal and uncommon blend into a sound with universal appeal.

With the elegant and lilting vocals of Adriana Giordano, the superbly versatile Eric Verlinde on piano, and the locked-in rhythm section of Jeff Busch on drums and percussion and Dean Schmidt on bass, EntreMundos Quarteto deliver the goods: Seductive, sparkling and substantial, light as a feather but with a deep, earthy groove, and guaranteed to move the hips and lift the soul!
Polecat| 4:35 p.m.
Polecat has brought the stomp all over the Pacific Northwest, with over 700 appearances and four albums in eight years. Their unique instrumentation and smart song arrangements enable them to seamlessly blend genres including Americana, Celtic, rock, reggae, and world music into their sound. The general appeal of Polecat comes from their unique take on roots music, eclectic recordings, and their interactive and high energy live shows.
