Four Mile Portage

Four Mile Portage mainly consists of Brandy Forsman and Tom Maloney, but Kyle Ollah often joins this long established bluegrass group to sing and swap instruments mid-tune as all three musicians play fiddle, banjo and guitar. Bassist Mike Myers occasionally jams with the group when a fuller sound is needed. The band has a steady gig playing for the Tamarack Dance Association. Maloney says the performances are about “sharing the tunes … which originate from around 1850 or earlier and have regional variations.” The band hopes to release its third album around the time of Homegrown.
