Music: Kyndel Dollison

Kyndel Dollison is a hearty Midwestern-bred acoustic + electric guitar player and singer/songwriter.

After taking 11 years of piano lessons (thanks, Nana), I transitioned to guitar (thanks, Papa) and began writing my own music. After 14 years of learning this wonderfully versatile instrument, I come to you with an easy listening blend of bluesy original music, folksy contemporary covers and the best of the classics. I've found Hillsboro's rich music scene to be something of a well-kept secret, and the farmers' markets are a uniquely delightful gig to play because the patrons genuinely enjoy supporting the local market.

Music: The Jamblers

The Jamblers play a blend of acoustic-Americana style music that everyone can enjoy. Folk, rock, bluegrass, jazz, country, alt-indie, pop, Irish – and plenty of originals that are hard to classify, but all of which fit nicely into their overall harmony-driven stringband sound; and that sound fits especially well in a festive summer outdoor environment like the Hillsboro Farmers’ Market!  

 They’re veteran musicians who know quality and know how to entertain - and how to light up the atmosphere with lively,  thoughtful and fun music. Whether you’re looking for melons or melodies, grapes or guitars, rutabagas or rhythms, cabbages or congas, you’ll like what you hear as you shop and enjoy the midsummer sunshine.

  The band members – Gene, Katie, Sarah and Jeremy - each come from different but compatible musical backgrounds, which they jamble together, rehearse and polish, and play for you. Some folks call it “Variety”. They just call it “Music”, and they look forward to meeting you at the Market in July!

Music: Half Grass'd

Born from the ashes of an open bluegrass jam session. The same fellows kept showing up and sounding better and better each week, and folks started asking them what their "band name" was, and whether or not they were available for parties and such... so these old salty, grey-haired manipulators of strings and purveyors of ancient tunes banded together, picked a name out of the air, and called themselves Half-Grass'd! Our music is unique…imagine a combination of Merle Haggard and the Rolling Stones, with a banjo thrown in for good measure! Some folks call it “Hillbilly Rock & Roll”…and that kind of fits our style. Our music includes 4 part harmonies, is family friendly, and is enjoyed by young and old.

 

John Stocks – Guitar and vocals

David Chalupsky – Banjo and vocals

John Keys - Dobro

Scott Cronin – Bass, Guitar, and vocals

David Hopkins – Bass and vocals

Rose Darke – Fiddle and vocals

Stevan Rogers – Mandolin and vocals

Music: Derek Reynolds

I am a local modern pop/folk artist inspired by the people and places around our community.  My instrumentals are written in amazing places like Mosier Plateau or our own Coast Range rain forest and my song lyrics express feelings towards people or topics that inspire me everyday.  Since I play most of the Farmers Markets around the area I feel very connected to the Local Grown movement and believe that music is very much a part of that, I even dedicate a portion of my resources to have local instruments built as well.  I love the connection and communication I have with the listeners as a solo acoustic performer, it is a very fulfilling path and my new 9 song album is doing well and has become another great source of communication with my fans, followers and friends.

Market Kitchen: Girl Scouts-Planting Seeds

Troop #12589 consists of 11 1st graders from several schools in Hillsboro. We decided to dedicate 1/3 of our Girl Scout Cookie earnings to our service project which is teaching kids how to plant and grow their own fresh vegetables. An overwhelming majority of the girls chose food insecurity as the cause we wanted to put our effort and energy into. Along with this project we will also be volunteering and donating to the local food bank. We will be attending the farmers market and helping kids plant bush beans in a bucket they can take home along with a flier to help them grow, harvest, clean and eat the beans. The small buckets will make kids in any living situation able to grow their own beans as long as they have outdoor space, so it will work in an apartment as well as a big garden space.
