We’re so excited to welcome the Squirrel Butter as a part of the 3rd Annual Missoula Old Time Social for a FREE Family Friendly Friday concert on April 26, 2019.
Squirrel Butter, husband and wife duo of Charlie Beck & Charmaine Slaven, started performing together after meeting at the Portland Old Time Music Gathering in 2005. Sharing a deep love of traditional music, they perform American roots music of old-time, bluegrass, blues, and country. They add their touch to these traditions and thread traditional influences into their original compositions. Multi-instrumentalists, they play banjo, guitar, fiddle, steel guitar, step-dance, and sing harmonies. They’re both members of the venerable string band, The Tallboys, and are both instigators of the country dance band, The Lucky Shots. For over the last dozen years, they have contributed to the of the music and dance communities in the PNW, and their love of the music and people keeps growing. Charmaine is also a Bitterroot native, and is excited to participate in an event back home, and with their baby girl, Hazel, in tow!
