Misty River

Years at Winfield: 

“When Oregon Art Beat broadcast a segment on MISTY RIVER, the response was amazing. When these four women weave their lovely harmonies, it is spine tingling. Our phones and web site were jammed with requests to know where they were playing and how to buy their CDs.”

— Jeff Douglas,
Executive Producer,Oregon Art Beat, Oregon Public Broadcasting

Since emerging on the Portland acoustic music scene in 1997, the four-woman band MISTY RIVER has earned an enviable reputation as one of the finest, most entertaining bands in the Pacific Northwest. MISTY RIVER blends folk, bluegrass, country, Celtic and original music into a seamless and highly distinctive Americana sound that has entranced thousands of fans.

Though flattered by critics’ frequent comparisons with the neo-bluegrass approach of Alison Krauss and Emmylou Harris, the members of MISTY RIVER are intent on creating their own signature sound. Strong original material is at the heart of that sound. The band has released 4 CD’s to date, with a 5th to be released spring of 2007.

Whether performing at a large concert hall or an intimate house concert, MISTY RIVER makes an emotional connection with its audiences, thoroughly captivating listeners with beautiful and moving music and a natural, friendly presentation.
