about us
    Melding infectious rhythms with songwriter craft, Red Pajamas embarks on their 15th season with fresh material and an expanded musical canvas. The group’s polished arrangements showcase delicious harmonies and tasty leads on mandolin, mandola, fiddle, accordion, guitar and piano. Their rock/folk/blues sound blends Midwest clarity with East coast grit and Northwest sensibilities.

Backing up songwriting duo Tara Kemp and David Andersen is longtime bandmate Chico Schwall (mandolin and fiddle), and fellow Mother of Pearl member Bud Chase (acoustic and electric fretless bass), with George Filgate on percussion, and Patti Lomont on harmony vocals and mandolin.

Red Pajamas’ danceable rhythm & blues, high energy instrumentals, and passionate originals are destined to please audiences across the Northwest.
