Polecat is at the Waverley Hotel Friday

Polecat stompin’ at the Waverley Friday night

Tickets available at Bop City Records

Formed in March 2010, the bluegrass/Americana five-piece has been making a name for itself throughout the Pacific Northwest for its expressive roots tracks and explosive live shows. Their unique instrumentation and song arrangements enable them to seamlessly blend genres including bluegrass, country, celtic, rock, reggae, and world music into their sound.

Consisting of Aaron Guest (vocals, 12 string acoustic), Jeremy Elliott (electric guitar and vocals), Karl Olson (drums and percussion), Cayley Schmid (fiddle), and Richard Reeves (upright bass), Polecat got its start playing weekly gigs at Boundary Bay Brewing & Bistro in Bellingham, Washington before the group even established itself as a band – or had a name.

Three albums and hundreds of shows later, Polecat are known for their lively brand of  ‘stomp grass’ music.

Tickets are $15 and are available at Bop City Records in Courtenay and The Waverley Hotel in Cumberland.
