Betty and the Boy originally started as a modest duo with a solid belief in performing original music compositions. Meeting in a small town in Montana and relocating their music to Eugene, Oregon, Bettreena Jaeger and Josh Harvey combine their contrary influences to write and perform their minimalistic melodies on street corners and stages across the Northwest. With banjo, guitar, mandolin and a variety of other sounds played by new friends living in the Eugene area (Jon Conlon on bass and Michelle Whitlock on violin), these songsters will steal your heart with memorable and haunting ballads about love and loss. Spare, meditative, and poetic, their songs scintillate with grit. Betty and the Boy have given voice to the quirky edges of youth, honing ragged emotion into their artful and spunky new tunes.
The Sisters Folk Festival is held annually in September in charming Sisters, Oregon. The Festival is home to six stages that feature three fun-filled days of amazing music performed by talented artists from around the world.
This year's festival dates are September 9, 10 and 11. Betty and the Boys will be performing Saturday, September 10th, 6:15pm-7:15pm at Bronco Billy's & Sunday, September 11th, 12:15-1pm at the ArtWorks Stage.
