Cultural Art Series Presents: Squirrel Butter

Every third Saturday of the month, Northwest Folklife comes to the Eastside to present an evening of music at Crossroad’s Market Stage in Bellevue and we would like you to participate!
Introducing: Squirrel Butter
Squirrel Butter, husband and wife duo of Charlie Beck & Charmaine Slaven, started performing together after meeting at a music festival in 2005. Sharing a deep love of traditional music, they explore the genres of old-time, early bluegrass, blues, country, & cajun while adding their unique perspective to these traditions with their original compositions. Multi-instrumentalists, they play banjo, guitar, fiddle, steel guitar, step-dance, and sing in harmony. Both are members of honky tonk project, The Lucky Shots, and were also half of The Tallboys. They’re anchors of the old-time music & square-dance communities in the NW and beyond.
