Love your show

My husband I are regular listeners to Bluegrass Express. Thanks so much for promoting such a wonderful genre of music. Today, Oct. 1, 2017, you seemed to play every one of my favorites. So many songs are like old friends.

Up coming shows in Sequim


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – October 12, 2014
CONTACT – Steve Blanchard

Sequim, Washington—Slipshod will give two performances in Sequim. Friday, October 31st Slipshod will be performing at the Dungeness Schoolhouse and Saturday, November 1st at the Gardiner Community Center.

Slipshod, known as “The Dynamic Duo of Bluegrass and Americana Music” consists of Matt Snook (dobro and banjo) and Steve Blanchard (guitar and mandolin). They met a number of years ago as part of the Northwest Bluegrass community and became fast friends and picking partners. These musicians formed Slipshod in 2012 and since then have enjoyed entertaining audiences with both their humor and musical skills. Matt and Steve offer listeners a broad and diverse range of music, including originals, familiar melodies and dynamic instrumentals. Their harmonies and unique vocal interpretations add to their precise instrumental talents.

The Friday, October 31st performance begins at 7 pm at the Dungeness Schoolhouse which is located at 2781 Towne Road, Sequim. Saturday, November 1st the performance also begins at 7 pm at the Gardiner Community Center, 980 Old Gardiner Road. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door.

“Don’t let this band’s name fool you! Their mastery of the bluegrass/folk genre is ANYthing but slipshod. This Blanchard-Snook pairing is a wonderful balance of fluid instrumentals, strong vocals and good humor. Go see ’em!” Debby Kooy, Director, George Washington Coffee House, George Bluegrass Festival.

“Slipshod is the real deal. Professional musicians who respect the art of creating music and presenting it in a fun and intelligent performance. They understand that it’s the music business and treat it as such, making them easy to work with. It’s easy for me to recommend them for any venue.” Ken Cartwright, Festival and concert promoter & Music program director for KMUZ and KYAC community radio.

For more information, contact Steve Blanchard at 503-730-0005 or steve@steveblanchardmusic.com.

Slipshod has performed recently at the Lincoln City Cultural Center, the Canyon Performing Arts Center in Mill City, Oregon, the George Washington Bluegrass Festival in George, Washington, the Eastside Bluegrass Concert Series in Portland, and regularly performs at the Grant House in Vancouver, Washington, and Primrose and Tumbleweeds in downtown Hillsboro, Oregon.

Oso Landslide

Thank you, thank you for all of your messages and concern. My sweetheart and I live just about a mile west of the slide and we, and all our animals, are doing fine.

Despite an evacuation order, we have decided to stay at our home, which is about 30 feet above the river. We are all prepared for no power, plenty to eat, plenty of food for the animals, and so on.

While we have not lost any family, Oso is a small community and neighbors and friends are missing.

Our land line is out and Internet and cell service are a bit touch and go, but we are answering calls and email as we can.

Thanks again for your thoughts and prayers.


Halleluiah, written by Martha Scanlon of the Reeltime Travelers, is included in their 2nd album, Living Reeltime, Thinking Oldtime.

This is a beautiful song and I frequently play it at the end of a set, where I feature Bluegrass Gospel. However, despite its title and sound, the song is about a "59 Chevy, gets me to work on time."

The lyric you remember could be Halleluiah, Halleluiah, I'm a going on home - which also sounds like gospel!

Glad you liked it. I try to play something by the Reeltime Travelers every show. Give me a call during BGX at 425.303.9076.

Thank you! Me and My Old Still is one of my favorites, too. I'll be sure to play it two weeks from today - July 1st?

How are you? Listened to your show a few weeks back really loved it. Would love to visit over the phone when you have a minute. I also have a question for you when you have time. I am no longer at wonderful Archbishop Murphy, had a nice "get out in 15 minutes," similiar to the scene in Jerry McGuire but life goes on and really glad to be out of there!! Let's catch up!
