You can always count on a fun night when one of Mock Crest Tavern’s regular bands are warming up for their turn on our “Carpet Stage.” I joined the crowd recently for another round of Castletownand found myself smack dab inside North Portland’s best party.
With Robert Richter on guitar, Katie Lubiens on fiddle and both contributing vocally, their music combines the lively spirit of the Irish fiddle and traditional American music based in the blues, jazz, rock, and classical. You mix it all together and you get rollicking AmeriCeltic tunes that is perfect for a night spent with friends. As PortlandNotes has said, they are a band “so unique – they’re in a genre all their own!”
This fun duo is a much-loved Pacific Northwest band, performing an average of 120 shows up and down the West Coast, as well as on local television. They have also released several albums and you can get a preview what you’ll hear at our bar by visiting their website.
Castletown is just one of the many great band that have become favorites of the Mock Crest Tavern crowd. They play monthly on our “Carpet Stage” and you can join us this month on Thursday, August 16that 9pm for Robert Richter and Katie Lubiens’s performance as the Castletown Duo. We’ve got the Guinness and Jameson Irish Whiskey ready to fortify this Irish themed night.
