Bluegrass, songs and intricate instrumentals

Your cider and mead sippin' wouldn't be complete without memorable music!

Jeff Scroggins and Matt Sircely first met at a jam session in Seattle in 2018, and they soon started performing around Washington State. Scroggins and Sircely are bringing a full quartet to the the Orcas Cider & Mead Festival, with Issac Callender on guitar and fiddle and Forrest Marowitz on bass to join Sircely’s mandolin and Scroggins’ banjo work. The bluegrass-based quartet also highlights the breadth of music original composition within the group, at times branching into varied and interesting musical threads.
