Artis the Spoonman, one of Port Townsend's living legends, is familiar to anyone who has spent time reveling at the Oregon Country Fair or strolling Seattle's Pike Place Market in years. And certainly to anyone who watched MTV in the early '90s, when he famously appeared on Soundgarden's Grammy-winning song, "Spoonman", as the song rose to the top of the charts in both the U.S. and the U.K.
Joining Artis will be Joe Fulton, whose impressive fiddling has become widely familiar as the signature sound of The Tallboys string band. Like Artis, he has been a frequent busker at the Pike Place Market. Raised in Iowa, Joe has fiddled since boyhood.
