Honestly, who doesn’t get a little giddy at the prospect of Leavenworth in the winter? The little Bavarian-ish paradise, with its snow and twinkling lights, tasty restaurants, and cozy bars holds a charm that few can deny. It was definitely a factor when Artist Home decided to host the first Timbrrr! Winter Music Festival in the town five years ago. It’s also what makes Timbrrr! one of the most magical festivals around. Thank goodness it’ll be back this coming January 26th and 27th. Tickets are available, and the lineup looks to be as hot as the weather will be chill.
Imagine sipping a beer, sitting at an outdoor fireplace, listening to a band play. Maybe it’s Moorea Masa & the Mood, or Canada’s Burying Ground. Imagine cradling a hot toddy cocktail in your palms while taking in a rock show after spending the day in a winter wonderland. Imagine that you’re rocking out to Ra Ra Riot, Cave Singers, or Hobosexual, who are returning for their second taste of Timbrrr! since 2015, and fresh off the heels of their latest killer release, Monolith.
Other great bands abound in this lineup: Y La Bamba, The Black Tones, Great Grandpa, Bread & Butter, and Wall of Ears will be there, too. You can spend Saturday afternoon pub crawling and taking in some of the quieter acts, you can browse Sonic Boom’s popup record and merch shop, or you can pick up a discounted lift ticket and hit the slopes at Stevens Pass. If you decide to hang out in town, you can compete in a game of Cornhole, Washers, or Ladderball to win prize packages.
Various hotel partners in town offer accommodations deals for Timbrrr! attendees, and if previous years are any indication, Kavu will be selling some killer Timbrrr! branded gear that is unique to the festival. There will be a tasty Hot Toddy Garden as well as food vendors inside the main Festhalle venue. All in all, Timbrrr! is, as always, an awesome, one of a kind festival in a gorgeous location. We hope to see you there!

A report from Nectar Lounge by Davin Michael Stedman:
I am so proud of this record. Mell Dettmer and Clinton Fearon forever.
Sly Dunbar and One Pop Recording Studio is a big part of this breakout album by the greatest Roots artist writing songs today.
I was on the press list tonight and I bought this for $25 with pride.
Celebrate this local artist that is beloved around the world. Because there is no other Clinton Fearon.
This man has amassed a catalog that is on the same scale and weight of purpose as Bob Marley and Peter Tosh. But in the end as a survivor, and as Gladiator he used his overtime here on earth to continue to bang out stellar song after song through his French connections and his unheralded partnership with Miss Meli Dettmer, the Queen of Reggae and Afrobeat production in this Villa.
It's madness to say this is my first time at a full on Clinton Fearon show but it's true. We've shared stages and moments but this is my first time, and this is the most pop and ready for the airwaves accessible record he has produced. But Mell made sure that all that sugar was matched gram for gram with the tremendous fiber you can expect from a Clinton Fearon release.
But it's the season to drop hits, which at Fearon's age is unheard of in Reggae. But again there is only one Clinton Fearon. ... See MoreSee Less
