The Sugar Beets
For over 25 years the Sugar Beets have been bringing people to their feet with their blend of traditional music and contemporary original songwriting. Moving effortlessly from bluegrass, or Celtic and old-time fiddle music, to Motown, country, swing and pop, the sound is fresh and inspiring. The Sugar Beets are an eight piece ensemble featuring moving female lead and harmony vocals, fiddle, mandolin, acoustic guitar, stand up bass, piano and drums. These skillful musicians are also proficient on banjo, sitar, zheng, African drumming and much more! The songwriting is equally eclectic moving from touching to hilarious as the band shifts genres. Their high energy acoustic dance music has become the soundtrack for countless outdoor celebrations, rites of passage, kickoffs rallies and tributes throughout the Pacific Northwest. Their rich harmonies, impeccable musicianship and extraordinary versatility are captivating to any age group. The band has produced six professional recordings the most recent of which, Secret to Happiness, can be heard regularly on local radio. Having formed the group as students at the University of Oregon in 1990, the rapport among these long time friends is as endearing as it is entertaining.
