The 'Cats Came Back: The Panhandle Polecats Will Reprise the Valley Bluegrass Festival
After spending their dull childhood in a hollow log eating beetles and crickets, this young litter quickly rose to stardom in the Inland Northwest bluegrass scene and has toured throughout the region, performing everywhere from cow pastures, barns, garages, and parking lots, to television studios, bluegrass festivals, colleges, county fairs, and auditoriums.
This quintet is made up of 5 siblings – 2 brothers and 3 sisters – who have established a reputation for good music, first rate picking, and a high energy, entertaining show. They are not a tribute or cover band, although their sound is deeply rooted in the classic sounds of Flatt & Scruggs, Bill Monroe, and the Dillards, but they play their music with the same kind of energy and enthusiasm as those legendary artists did back when bluegrass was a new musical form. In every note they play, it is obvious that these five siblings love to play music even more than they love to fight with each other.
