Recording engineer Rob Stroup accurately depicts The Comrades as a "foot-stompin', train-hoppin', story-spinnin', truth-spittin', outlaw, country-western, hobo-blues band."
Portland singer and songwriter Kory Quinn is the one mainstay in the band's ever-changing lineup. Quinn has a queue of musicians stretching from New York to Portland who play with him as The Comrades when he travels.
This weekend, The Comrades will be Quinn and Portland-based duo Bitterroot, featuring Colt and Foster Haney. The trio will play at 9 p.m. Friday, March 9, at Caldera Tap House, 31 Water St., Ashland.
When he's playing solo, Quinn plays originals in the vein of early '60s folk. He has one album, "Waitin' for a Train," and one in the works.
