Forest Beutel, the Freeborn Man: a boot-stompin’ Americana Blues One-man band
Slinging banjo, guitar, harmonica, kick-drum, and a high-hat, Beutel builds a twangy upbeat atmosphere that engages a crowd and gets folks on their feet. A modern-day ramblin man, Beutel’s voice blends the high lonesome sounds of Hank Williams and Townes Van Zandt with gruff baritone vibrations akin to Tom Waits and Johnny Cash.
Forest began his journey as a professional musician in Rhode Island over a decade ago, drumming in nationally touring bands. After moving across the country to Tacoma, Washington, Forest picked up the banjo and became a regional favorite as the front-man of several bluegrass bands including Barleywine Revue and the Rusty Cleavers.
Forest has been an active one-man band for over five years, with three solo albums leaving listeners awestruck at the meeting of dynamic lyricism and raw musicianship.

Eduardo Mendonça, a native of Brazil throughout his travels in the US, Canada, Nepal and Brazil, the talented musician, composer, arranger, and musical director has explored the many and varied genres of Brazilian popular music, entertaining such notable personalities as the 14th Dalai Lama, Pope John Paul II, and former South Africa President Nelson Mandela. Mendonça appeared in the PBS “American Masters” documentary: “Paul Simon: Born at the Right Time” which aired in 1993.
In May 2016, Eduardo performed as guest artist with the jointly sponsored Seattle Symphony-Carnegie Hall project “Link Up: The Orchestra Moves,” exploring the creative process of this passionate composer through melody and motif. Eduardo offers a unique and pleasurable musical experience and his performances never fail to enlighten and entertain multi-generational audiences about music theory, history, and investigation. As Paul de Barros of The Seattle Times observes, “Seattle is lucky to have Mendonça in the neighborhood”.
