For more than a decade, The Foghorns have been presenting their brand of folk blended with punk-- playing the streets of Reykjavik Iceland with an acoustic, a bucket and an overcoat, the clubs of Brooklyn with bluegrass backup, the rowdy bars of the Midwest with a screeching hollowbody.

Finally settling in Seattle in 2008, the band found a home with regular gigs at the Comet Tavern, Blue Moon, the Tractor Tavern and Conor Byrne.

Their 2009 release A Diamond as Big as the Motel Six, was featured on KEXP's Music That Matters and Greg Vandy's fantastic show ROADHOUSE.

Their follow-up in 2011, To the Stars on the Wings of a Pig, was described by Seattle Weekly as "one of the year's best albums."

The band toured the US with its full American and Icelandic lineup: Bart Cameron, Katie Quigley, Rich Quigley, Kristjan Oli Petursson, Bara Sigurjonsdottir.

In Europe, Bart Cameron and Katie Quigley performed as a duo, with help from guest musicians.

The blog World's Biggest Corporation once wrote the following paragraph about The Foghorns: “In the middle of some frozen nowhere, a man is warming up his poor raggedy ass in a cabin, sipping whiskey and dreaming of home. He'd probably feel a lot better if he could hear The Foghorns... Wisconsin native Bart Cameron and his Icelandic pals play bluesy, folky tunes that make reliable companions in the middle of this shitball winter. It's the kind of music that tired people play best..."

It's out of date now, but we're still happy with that description.
