Alternate Root Magazine says "Imagine Simon and Garfunkel singing with the Carter Family's devotion." Praised for their gorgeous vocal harmonies, compelling songwriting, and masterful instrumentation, Cabin Fever NW brings their beautiful music back to Nancy's Farm. Fans of bluegrass, singer-songwriter, folk, gospel, Americana, and country music find much to love about their vibrant sound and performances.
What began as an adventure by two best friends, Cabin Fever NW has grown into a powerhouse ensemble including Dianne Bochsler (vocals, rhythm guitar) and Tara Caldwell (vocals, claw hammer banjo) of Bellingham, WA, Ed Johnson (vocals, lead guitar) of Menlo Park, CA, and Paul Elliott (fiddle) of Seattle, WA.
Dianne Bochsler's musical career began by singing duets and playing guitar with her father. And, she adopted an important piece of his life philosophy: happiness is playing a guitar and singing with friends. Her love of the stage took her all the way from upstate New York to Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle. When she saw the music scene in the Pacific Northwest, she realized she had to be part of it.
Tara Caldwell's musical roots rise from the mountains and prairies of Alberta and the folk traditions of the labor movement. An accomplished singer and songwriter, Tara finds inspiration in the brighter spots as well as the darker corners of human experience. As a two-year-old child, she experienced " imprinting " with the banjo and has been following it around ever since. When Tara met Dianne nineteen years ago, they discovered their near-perfect sibilant harmony and immediately grew ambitious about performing, recording, and living out their musical dreams together.
Ed Johnson is a master of musical styles ranging from folk to Brazilian to classical. He is highly esteemed and sought after as a guitarist, bandleader, record producer, vocalist, teacher, and musical consultant. His vibrant, original contemporary jazz recordings have earned him fans and airplay worldwide. Ed tours regularly with numerous bands, including his own Novo Tempo. You can find Ed at Ed Johnson Website
Paul Elliott is an extremely versatile and respected West Coast fiddle player. He has performed with The Good Old Persons, John Reischman, Michelle Shocked, Alison Brown, Buell Neidlinger, and many others. His recording credits span film, television, and radio, and a long list of recordings including Scott Nygaard's No Hurry on the Rounder label.
