Wyoming favorites Screen Door Porch took to the Beartrap Summer Festival stage and brought their own personal style of bluegrass and folk music proving why the continue to be one the must-see bands of Beartrap.
Screen Door Porch
The band known as Screen Door Porch are activists. Not in a political sense, but a musical one. They were the driving force behind creating the annual WYOmericana Caravan Tour that's garnered airwave praise and press ink from here to The New York Times and back.
One of the most unique bands on the Sunday lineup, Screen Door Porch showed off their own brand of Americana, Roots-Rock and Country-Blues. I remember hearing them cover a Radiohead song, which I was excited about. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get the camera up in time to capture it. Nonetheless, Screen Door Porch put on an awesome performance for the Sunday audience.
For those who do not remember, Screen Door Porch graced the stage last year at the Beartrap Summer Festival. One year later, they have returned to the meadow to show off what they have been working on since last year's festival, and they did not disappoint.
The familiar slogan "think globally, act locally" was not on the agenda of the band known as Screen Door Porch when they scheduled their regional tour earlier this year--but it certainly worked out that way.
I dare you to listen to this song, with it's beautiful lyrics and haunting voices and fantastic music, and not get chills down your spine. I double dare you. The fact is, you're gonna get chills. It'd be impossible not to, as Screen Door Porch has made a name for themselves by eliciting that exact type of response. Don't believe me? Check out this video.
I have a thing for girls in bands. I have no idea why. There is just something about a girl in a band that makes me dizzy. Bonus points if she's actually talented. So imagine my delight when Screen Door Porch took the stage and I heard one of the most beautiful voices I've ever heard in my life. Check out these pics from the set of my new favorite band.
We absolutely love it when we can bring Wyoming artists to Beartrap and this duo (sometimes quartet) from Jackson Hole is no exception. I caught up with the members of Screen Door Porch in the Beartrap "Green Room" and asked them about their Sophomore album The Fate & The Fruit and what we can expect from their Beartrap set.
