Hailing from the rain-drenched forests of Olympia, the Blackberry Bushes Stringband plays Northwest acoustic Americana that draws from American folk music with influences from Appalachian old-time tunes, indie rock, and alt-country.

The band plays in support of its new album, “Three Red Feathers,” set for release Aug. 28, at a gig at 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 14, at Green Frog, 1015 N. State St.

A blend of bluegrass and American folk sounds, “Three Red Feathers” is a collection of original songs centered on impermanence and imperfection. Band members are Jakob Breitbach on fiddle, Daniel Ullom on mandolin, Forrest Markowitz on bass, Alex Genova on banjo, and Jes Raymond on guitar and clawhammer banjo, and the group’s founder and singer-songwriter.
