Huichica Walla Walla

to Sep 14

Huichica Walla Walla

Huichica Music Festival debuts in Walla Walla this fall, extending its boutique ‘farm to table’ approach to the American music scene in the bucolic Walla Walla Valley. Presented in partnership between Sonoma’s Bundschu Company, (((folkYEAH!))), and Sleight of Hand Cellars, the two-day all-ages festival will feature live music, high-quality wines, craft beers, and locally-sourced food from the region’s finest purveyors.

The inaugural Huichica Walla Walla lineup will feature established and up-and-coming indie and folk artists, presented amidst bountiful rolling hills in the heart of Walla Walla wine country. Festival-goers can camp on-site or opt to ‘glamp’ in luxury tents provided by Shelter Co. The newly announced lineup includes:

  • Yo La Tengo (performing two sets)

  • Allah-Las

  • Destroyer (solo)

  • Purple Mountains

  • Robyn Hitchcock (performing two sets)

  • Moon Duo

  • Fruit Bats (solo, performing two sets)

  • Waxahatchee

  • Titus Andronicus

  • Howlin Rain

  • The Minus 5

  • Lia Ices

  • Madeline Kenney

  • Marisa Anderson


“I knew it when I saw it,” explains Huichica Co-founder and President of Bundschu Company, Jeff Bundschu. “The inspiring natural environment of the Walla Walla Valley, the caliber of the wine and food culture, and the laid back and open attitude of the people — all were right in line with the ethos that we've built our Huichica festival on for the past ten years. Expanding our bi-coastal music festival to the region will be a natural fit, and we're excited to bring people together around trendsetting music, food, and wine in more beautiful rural settings.”

Pigs on the Wing: Animals — A Pink Floyd Tribute

Pink Floyd tribute band Pigs on the Wing returns to Gesa Power House Theatre with a new concert experience, featuring a full performance of Pink Floyd's 1977 album Animals and a second full set highlighting Pink Floyd's Roger Waters-era catalog.

Tracing its roots to a one-off performance in Portland in 2006, Pigs on the Wing has steadily developed a reputation for delivering a high-quality, high-energy take on Pink Floyd's music, steeped in the Northwest's own rich musical heritage. All of the members of the band are seasoned veterans of the original rock scene and balance a decidedly un-tribute like attitude towards the music with a deep understanding of the precision and importance of Pink Floyd's music in many fans' lives. The result is a sound and experience both refreshing in delivery and yet true to the original — something the band believes sets it apart from other Pink Floyd tributes.

Pigs on the Wing has long considered Animals to be their defining experience of Floyd (not to mention the band's namesake) — and perhaps the album best suited to their own high-energy take on Floyd's catalog. Animals is Pink Floyd at their heaviest and most epic, weaving complex progressive rock arrangements into a single conceptual vision unlike anything the band had done before. Fans can expect Pigs on the Wing to deliver a precise, hard-hitting, true-to-the-music performance of the classic 1977 Animals album melded seamlessly with Pigs on the Wing's trademark willingness to explore the improvisational side of Pink Floyd's music — and to let their own musical strengths guide the journey. In the spirit of Pink Floyd, Pigs on the Wing's "Animals 2019" tour features an immersive visual dimension including a spectacular redesigned light show and live projection mapping for a concert experience unlike any other.

Live Music: Che Apalache — Latin Bluegrass Concert

Che Apalache is a four-man string band based in Buenos Aires with members from Argentina, Mexico and the United States. The group’s founder is Joe Troop (fiddle), a North Carolinian multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and composer who moved to Argentina in 2010 and taught bluegrass music to make a living. He now performs with some of his most dedicated students: Pau Barjau on banjo, Franco Martino on guitar, and Martin Bobrik on mandolin.

Che Apalache began as a bluegrass band, but eventually incorporated Latin American styles into their repertoire. Combining instrumental prowess with tight vocal harmonies, they have created an authentic blend of genres to reflect the nature of their lives. Evoking images from Appalachia to the Andes, their debut album Latingrass is a testament to a powerful cultural and musical exchange.

In 2017, Che Apalache won first place in the category of Neo-Traditional Band at the prestigious Appalachian String Band Music Festival in West Virginia.

Her soul-stirring voice in combination with lush arrangements, toe-tapping road songs, and heartstring-tugging ballads had the Los Feliz Journal ( based in Los Angeles, CA) naming her album a 2012 top-ten indie pick.

Live Cinema: Romeo and Juliet — Royal Ballet

Shakespeare’s enduring love story is known the world over. Since its 1965 premiere with The Royal Ballet, Kenneth MacMillan’s Romeo and Juliet has become a modern ballet classic. Sergey Prokofiev's iconic score and MacMillan's choreography capture the emotions of the young couple as they fall in love, despite the barriers that finally bring about the story’s tragic end.

Each revival gives opportunities for new dancers to interpret the doomed lovers. The whole Company brings the colour and action of Renaissance Verona, where a busy market all too quickly bursts into sword fighting, and a family feud leads to tragedy for both the Montagues and Capulets.

Filmed during a live event, the Live Cinema Series broadcasts offer audiences an equivalent to the best seat in the house, with incredibly detailed close-ups of the performers. This program has an approximate runtime of 3 hours, including two intermissions.

Tamástslikt (Tah-mahst-slickt) Cultural Institute is the 45,000 square foot tribally-owned museum on the Umatilla Reservation near Pendleton, Oregon, which opened in 1998. The Institute serves three goals: to accurately present the Cayuse, Umatilla, and Walla Walla peoples’ history, to perpetuate knowledge of their history and culture, and to contribute to the Tribal economy.

Bobbie is Cayuse, Umatilla, and Nez Perce and is enrolled at the Confederated Tribes of Umatilla. She is a graduate of Pendleton High School, the University of Oregon, and Willamette University’s Atkinson Graduate School of Management. She serves on the Eastern Oregon University and Oregon Historical Society Boards of Trustees and the Ecotrust and Oregon Community Foundation Boards of Directors.
