Sher Vadinska – As an artist, singer-songwriter Sher Vadinska brings to the stage over 3 decades of songwriting and recording. Whether steeped in story or poem, or set to a groove, her songs are lyrically potent and her voice, smoky and thick, blending folk-rock, blues, Americana and pop-country. As a performer, Sher is all heart. Sometimes tenderly raw, sometimes refreshingly unbridled, she sets the room aglow.
Over the years, Sher has played on some prominent stages, has opened for such artists as Brandi Carlile, Laura Love, Richard Shindell, Suzy Roach, It’s A Beautiful Day, Tret Fure, and Ferron, and has had one of her songs performed by Grammy Award Winner, Little Big Town.
Ser’s 5th independent CD (Knee on the Ground, 2016) was produced by Chip Westerfield and co-produced by Margaret Wilder in Bellingham, WA and is available at live shows and as a digital download at http://www.shervadinska.bandcamp.com.
Her previous 4 Cds (as Sheryl Skye) were recorded/produced by Michael Lozinski (Wading the Waters), Gina Baldacci (The Sheryl Skye Band), Kent Heckman and Gina Balducci (Ripple), and Sheryl Skye (One Little Life), and are only available at live shows.
Having overcome a serious health issue in 2012, Sheri has steadily come back to the stage and is playing keyboards and singing as a solo artist in many popular venues and with her band, JoMomma for festivals and local events!
She’s been keeping very busy! Booking gigs almost every week, attending jam sessions and open mics, and recording, Sheri takes everyday as a chance to share with music lovers everywhere!
Offering an eclectic song-list of quirky tunes, Sheri tries to do anything she sings her way. She doesn’t do the typical “Chick” songs.
A recent foray into blues has opened a new avenue of passion in her music that offers her a chance to see what she is really capable of singing and finding her own style.
Come hear Sheri live… live gives more energy and excitement than a recording can provide. Sheri loves to have fun and watch the audience having fun too!

Steven Itterly – Folk / Blues artist new to the area and recent winner of the Telluride Blues & Blues Festival – Country Blues Challenge – http://www.tellurideblues.com/news/2016-telluride-blues-challenge-winner-steve-itterly
Steve is warm and mellow, but can definitely bring a foot-stomping good time – playing mostly original and old folk blues songs with a personal twist.
