Formed in Bellingham, Washington in Spring 2010, Polecat has traveled all over Northwest U.S., performing over 400 shows in four years. Their unique instrumentation enables them to seamlessly blend genres including bluegrass, country, celtic, rock, reggae, and world music into their sound. The general appeal of Polecat comes from their unique take on roots music and their interactive and high energy live shows.
Polecat has shared the stage with Sam Bush, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, The Infamous Stringdusters, Trampled by Turtles, and many more. Festival appearances include Seattle's Bumbershoot and Oregon's NW String Summit.
