Northwest Folklife Festival

Seattle Center

CANCELLED due to the corona virus precautions.
The Weavils will be playing at the Northwest Folklife Festival on the Fisher Green Stage, from 7:45 to 8:15 pm. Please join us at one of the top music festivals in the State. Always a lot of fun, and free admission!

All Weavils Gigs Cancelled or on Hold due to the Corona Virus restrictions

The Weavils applaud Governor Inslee in leading our State to fight the Covid virus, and take precautions to prevent its spread. In terms of gigs, currently every single gig we had planned, both public and private are now either cancelled or on hold. We thought we had a busy summer ahead of us and nearly a full schedule. That is no longer the case. When permitted we will be playing in parks and neighborhoods to share our music as our way of helping to keep spirits up during the pandemic.

Phinney Ridge Winter Festival

Phinney Ridge Community Center, 6532 Phinney Ave N, Seattle, WA 98103

It is the way to kick off the Holidays, listening to the Weavils at the Phinney Ridge Winter Festival play classic Christmas Carols, like "Thanks a Lot", "New Camptown Races" and "My Whiskey is All Gone. OK, maybe not exactly Christmas Carols, but the event is sure a lot of fun. Hope to see you there!

This is a great Farmer's Market and a super fun venue for the Weavils. We played last year and had a blast, and were very pleased to be invited back. Enjoy food from vendors, shop for crafts and veggies, and listen to some music. A Friday evening well spent!

The Coombs Bluegrass Festival

The Rodeo Grounds, 2601 Alberni Hwy, Coombs, BC

This is a BIG DEAL for the Weavils. Coombs has hosted this bluegrass festival for 41 years, and it is one of the best in the Pacific Northwest. We play Friday, Saturday and Sunday (I will update this page when we get confirmed times) in a small town that has to be one of the most beautiful settings you will ever see.

The Weavils were delighted to be selected to play at the 2019 Folklife "Porch Rockin Bluegrass" stage. We will be at the Fisher Green Stage, which features a lot of gorgeous lawn to put down the lawn chair, listen to music, and take in this wonderful festival.

The Weavils at La Copa

 —  —

La Copa Cafe, 2410 NW 80th St, Seattle, WA 98117

A couple months ago Weavils Greg and Gray were relishing slices of sausage quiche and their lattes at La Copa Café. Feeling like it was a good day all around, they asked the owner Donovan, if the Weavils could play at the Copa. Wish granted! For fine music and great food and drink, join us at La Copa Café in Ballard. All the cool people will be there!

Phinney Ridge Winter Festival

Phinney Ridge Community Center, 6532 Phinney Ave N, Seattle

The Weavils will be in the blue building at the Phinney Ridge Center, surrounded by artisans and folks celebrating the holidays. Playing Christmas standards like Saro Jane, Roving Gambler and the like. (Hey, they are Holiday standards for us!) Hope to see you there.

Farmer Consumer Awareness Day


Last year we ended the festival season playing for the first time at the Farmer Consumer Awareness Festival in Quincy. It was even better than we hoped. We got to share a stage with Cowboy music legend Dave Stamey, hang around the HUGE fair grounds, and play for some awesome folks. Needless to say, we were thrilled to be asked back this year!

About Us

Leading this Seattle Bluegrass band is the entertaining MC and banjo player, Greg Lawless. The band performs a variety of genres, making them not only hard to classify, but uniquely diverse.

You will hear not only bluegrass; but Western Swing, Cajun, “Celtgrass”, Hawaiian, and even a rendition of a rock song or two.

Blended into the mix are songs written by their talented mandolin player, Chris Davidson.  Chris is a wonderful vocalist, leaning toward a traditional bluegrass sound,  EVEN featuring a yodel now and again.

All of these songs are tied together by the harmonious sounds of a magnificent dobro, played by Mark Meyers, who also provides sweet harmonica interludes.

The rhythm section, led by Pete Thorn (guitar) and Gray Pedersen (bass), keeps the band on the beat.

No introductions could be complete without mentioning the mellow baritone voice of David Grout, who elevates the vocal numbers to stratospheric heights.
