The REDS (River, Eros, Dante and Sage)

The REDS at The Oly Old Time Festival

by Christina Butcher for OLY ARTS

There’s nothing quite as Pacific Northwestern as Olympia’s teen fiddle-and-folk band The REDS. Comprised of Eros and Dante Faulk and River and Sage Scheuerell, The REDS have been playing bluegrass and old-time music together for five years. This year, they’ll open the festival at the “Thursday Night Kick-Off Dance,” where they’ll bring the crowd the best traditional and old-time folk music they have to offer.

With no shortage of musical talent, The REDS perform a mix of original, popular and traditional music across Washington state using the bodhran, cello, fiddle, guitar, mandolin, requinto and ukulele. They’ve performed at the Bellingham Folk Festival, OLY Fiddle Fest and The Washington Center Young Ambassadors Showcase. Last November, they opened for the internationally known fiddling duo Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas.
