Blending traditional roots and folk with an improvisational edge, Will West & The Friendly Strangers bring together a new sound with positive vibes.
Carolina born songwriter, Will West, has called Portland, Oregon home since 2002. The son of a bluegrass fiddle player, it’s easy to hear some of his early inspirations as a musician. Using traditional instrumentation, Will West & The Friendly Strangers have developed a signature acoustic sound full of life and energy. Be prepared for hand-clapping, fingers snapping and smiling faces. The album features an array of fantastic local musicians. Including: Skip vonKuske (cello, mandolin), Drew Norman (banjo), Chance Hayden (guitar), Sean Hudson (upright bass), Chris Lay (drums), Tanner Cundy (keys), Bob Soper (fiddle) & Sam Howard (upright bass). “The Friendly Strangers are a formidable ensemble, boasting fiddles and banjos and mandolins, all guided by West’s casual ringleading.” Up & Coming ~ The Portland Mercury “New Shoes” has been featured on KINK fm 101.9 Local Spotlight.
