Saturday Oct 12 - Sunday 13th
Join LyricsJoints.com as we create a movement around the country with our 1st “CannaCabanaFest 2019” in Ashland, Oregon. We believe in the universal language of music and in independent musicians who express freely.
Leveraging the power of music performed by area independent artists, our aim is to de-stigmatize and celebrate “cannabinoid” use across the US. Our musical festivals not only celebrate area bands, but also aim to feature boutique farms and craft artisans expressing their independent talents and self-expression.
CannaXpert, LLC began operations in Oregon (July, 2018) and is pursuing a national campaign in 11 states (including Washington DC) that have legalized the adult use of cannabis.
Come join us as we begin a movement kicking off at the historic Ashland Armory and moving across our great country!
We have an Excellent Lineup!

Fox and Bones
Portland, Oregon based folk-pop duo Fox and Bones are the product of life on the road. Their music is ripe with vocal harmonies that pull at the heart strings and a rich, often times metaphysical lyrical landscape. They’ve spent the majority of their four year career in transit, relentlessly touring the greater United States, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. This unwavering commitment to the road has spawned dedicated pockets of fans and friends all over the world.
It’s not all gas stations and hotel rooms for the internationally touring sweethearts. In 2018, they released their sophomore album “Better Land” which was met with critical acclaim. Jake Craney from Ground Sounds states “Better Land is exceptional, and impossible not to love” and music blog Come Here Floyd raves “The Oregon based duo are story tellers, adventurers and discoverers of magic in their sophomore LP.” Their new single “Running Free” is scheduled to be released August 2nd, 2019.
The duo’s live shows are an intimate hybrid of storytelling and comedy and as they play improv games and share stories from their adventures that draw in the audience and create a strong sense of community. Kelsey Greco of Vortex Music Magazine beams “(Fox and Bones) have an undeniable chemistry on stage, stealing furtive glances and sometimes locking eyes with an intimacy that showcases how vulnerable they are with one another and their audience."
Perhaps Isaac Biehl of Source Weekly puts it best: "Fox and Bones' music is made for those who are after adventure or who are running down a dream. The sound feels vast—like being in an open field with nothing but your thoughts narrating to the future."
