Fine Company is a talented trio of Pacific Northwest folksingers. Bill Murlin, Ron Dalton, and Jim Portillo combine a full range of vocal talent, as well as skilled picking on guitar, banjo, mandolin, and bass. They trade off on lead vocals, work wonders in three-part harmony, and back their singing with tasteful and energetic instrumentals. Although Fine Company is a new group, the individual members bring together decades of experience performing acoustic music throughout the Northwest.
All members of Fine Company have played at multiple Tumbleweed festivals as themselves and as members of many different bands; Ron is a multiple-finalist (including this year) in the Jane Titland Memorial Songwriting Contest.
