The Four Legged Faithful’s Ode to Yukon Charlie

Four Legged Faithful

This past Winter, we happened upon some dudes who had been so inspired by the idea of Yukon Charlie that they decided to write a song about him!

The Four Legged Faithful are a band made up of 4 ordinary men who all thrive on playing music together. Their aim is not to play traditional folk or bluegrass music, but instead to create beautiful, heart-felt, and genuine music using traditional folk/bluegrass instruments.

Listen to “Yukon Charlie”

by the Four Legged Faithful:

 

00:00
/
00:00

They create a sound that is honest and reflects the band’s many musical influences from nearly all genres. All members sing; creating multiple combinations of 2, 3, and 4-part harmonies. All members write and sing songs about their thoughts, families, and the natural world that surrounds them. For a band without a drummer, The Four Legged Faithful achieve an incredible level of intensity using foot percussion and layered rhythms throughout every measure.

They have been gracious enough to allow us to share their song, Yukon Charlie, with you here on our site.

If you’d like to download a free copy, just visit TheFourLeggedFaithful.com, and look for the download link on their home page.

Enjoy!

Next Adventure-Picture of StoreThis week’s Dealer of the Week is Next Adventure in Portland, Oregon.  This alternative outdoor store has been gearing folks up since 1997. Whether you are a kayaker, climber, snowboarder, hiker, camper, skier, cyclist, mountaineer, or just someone who loves the outdoors, they can help you with your next adventure!

The team at Next Adventure loves to play in the outdoors, and their goal is to make it easy for you to get out there and enjoy it, too! We want to get the right gear to the right person for the right price.

In the beginning, it was just Deek, Bryan and a small shop full of cardboard boxes on SE Grand Avenue.

The Next Adventure Crew

Some of the Next Adventure Crew…Out & About

Over the years, they have grown significantly, moving into bigger digs and gathering an expert crew of experienced outdoor enthusiasts. Poke around their shop, and you can still find the cardboard boxes. They bring you incredible savings with close-outs, dealer samples, and used equipment along with all of the latest and greatest brand name gear at great prices. Their inventory is changing all of the time, so be sure to check online often to find the latest, greatest deals.

At Next Adventure, the customer is #1. Their non-commissioned crew ain’t there for the money – you can tell that they love what they do. And what they do is help you get the gear you need to get out there and do it right – all at a price you can afford.
