Hills and Hollows

Hills & Hollows is a Portland, Oregon based duo weaving Celtic Roots music and song with a mystical heart. Ryan Powell and Jake Greico share a love for the songs and tunes of Ireland, Scotland, Brittany and beyond. They share a unique weaving of songs ancient and new with jigs, reels, and melodies of Ireland played on Flute, Irish Bouzouki, Bodhran, Whistle, Guitar, Stomp Box and a wee bit of Didjeridu.

Joining together in song and music is an ancient way of harmonizing our hearts with the present moment and to form a true community of deep listening and collective heart song. 

About us:

Ryan Powell was indoctrinated at birth into a lifetime love of Irish music by his father John who sang him the old ballads in his deep voice whenever he had the chance and a captive audience. Ryan took up guitar and whistle at a young age and began to play ballads after his first visit to Ireland as a young teenager in 1986. During the early 1990’s, Ryan lived in Ireland for 6 months and busked the streets of Galway and Dublin while studying James Joyce with Senator David Norris and absorbing the rich culture and music of the east and west of the country. 

In the mid 1990’s, Ryan was one of the founders of Celtic Rock band Blind Rafferty which played all around the Pacific Northwest for 6 years and recorded two albums. 

Today, Ryan weaves together his study of Daoist philosophy, martial arts and energy cultivation with his love of Irish music and lore. He guides the One Root Sacred Ireland journey to the SW of Ireland every few years and orchestrates a deep tour of the land which includes local storytellers and guides and daily health building Qigong practice. 

Jake Greico has been performing traditional music for dances, pub audiences and events since 2005. Hailing from Vermont and exposed from an early age to the lively folk music scene there, he's been honing his craft on Irish flute, DADGAD guitar, and folk singing since his late teens. Now a Portland resident of eight years, Jake collaborates regularly in sessions and performances with many of the most highly regarded Irish musicians in the area. He currently performs most frequently with "Outbound Traveler (outboundtraveler.com), a trio whose music spans traditional and contemporary folk traditions from the Appalachia's to the British Isles; and "Hills and Hollows", a duo whose focus is to bring together Celtic song and tunes in a mystical and heartfelt way. Jake has established his footing on a lifelong path of music and performance, and these two projects represent the leading edge of his his ever-deepening journey with traditional music. Both groups are receiving high praise for the richness, beauty and diversity of their respective sounds.

St. Patricks Day Party/ Elizabeth and Bob from Stringed Migration

Elizabeth Nicholson on vocals, harps, and guitar and Bob Soper on bouzouki, fiddle, vocals and guitar. Will be here from Stringed Migration on Saint Patricks day! 

Stringed Migration is a Portland, OR, based quartet that performs a lush synthesis of international roots music with a twist of jazz. Comprised of four multi-instrumentalists whose individual careers have garnered regional, national and international recognition, the band is enjoying a rapidly growing reputation in the Northwest folk world. 

The band features a cast of musicians whose diverse backgrounds touch upon Latin music, Balkan music, Americana, rock, Mediæval music, classical Indian music, Western classical music, and jazz, as well as traditional Irish and Scottish fare. “The idea,” says founder Elizabeth Nicholson, “is to allow everyone in the band to draw from the full spectrum of their experience, rather than conforming to a rigidly defined idiom.” The resulting sound pays true homage to the American melting pot, revealing technical mastery, nuance, spontaneity and heart. 

Stringed Migration is: Elizabeth Nicholson on vocals, harps, and guitar; Eddie Parente on violin and viola; Bob Soper on bouzouki, fiddle, vocals and guitar; and sometimes Rob Barrick on double bass and Scottish smallpipes.

Hills and Hollows

Hills & Hollows is a Portland, Oregon based duo weaving Celtic Roots music and song with a mystical heart. Ryan Powell and Jake Greico share a love for the songs and tunes of Ireland, Scotland, Brittany and beyond. They share a unique weaving of songs ancient and new with jigs, reels, and melodies of Ireland played on Flute, Irish Bouzouki, Bodhran, Whistle, Guitar, Stomp Box and a wee bit of Didjeridu.

Joining together in song and music is an ancient way of harmonizing our hearts with the present moment and to form a true community of deep listening and collective heart song. 

About us:

Ryan Powell was indoctrinated at birth into a lifetime love of Irish music by his father John who sang him the old ballads in his deep voice whenever he had the chance and a captive audience. Ryan took up guitar and whistle at a young age and began to play ballads after his first visit to Ireland as a young teenager in 1986. During the early 1990’s, Ryan lived in Ireland for 6 months and busked the streets of Galway and Dublin while studying James Joyce with Senator David Norris and absorbing the rich culture and music of the east and west of the country. 

In the mid 1990’s, Ryan was one of the founders of Celtic Rock band Blind Rafferty which played all around the Pacific Northwest for 6 years and recorded two albums. 

Today, Ryan weaves together his study of Daoist philosophy, martial arts and energy cultivation with his love of Irish music and lore. He guides the One Root Sacred Ireland journey to the SW of Ireland every few years and orchestrates a deep tour of the land which includes local storytellers and guides and daily health building Qigong practice. 

Jake Greico has been performing traditional music for dances, pub audiences and events since 2005. Hailing from Vermont and exposed from an early age to the lively folk music scene there, he's been honing his craft on Irish flute, DADGAD guitar, and folk singing since his late teens. Now a Portland resident of eight years, Jake collaborates regularly in sessions and performances with many of the most highly regarded Irish musicians in the area. He currently performs most frequently with "Outbound Traveler (outboundtraveler.com), a trio whose music spans traditional and contemporary folk traditions from the Appalachia's to the British Isles; and "Hills and Hollows", a duo whose focus is to bring together Celtic song and tunes in a mystical and heartfelt way. Jake has established his footing on a lifelong path of music and performance, and these two projects represent the leading edge of his his ever-deepening journey with traditional music. Both groups are receiving high praise for the richness, beauty and diversity of their respective sounds.

CastleTown Performance

Every show with Castletown is a party! With the fiery hot AmeriCeltic fiddle tunes backed by some thumping drum beats, a hopping bass line, and full-bodied acoustic guitar, it’s impossible not to dance to their music. Castletown is comprised of a unique collection of talented musicians whose varying musical backgrounds blend together to create a sound unlike any other Celtic band around. With flavors of blues, jazz, rock ‘n roll, and even classical, Castletown’s style of AmeriCeltic music has something to offer every listener.

Come by and say hi! We’d love to meet you!

Castletown will be at RDB on March 3rd starting and 7pm! See you there!
