Swansea & Lara Michell- Feb 1st @9pm + 2nd @8pm
Original NW songs from a trio of PDX scene fixtures Rebecca Sanborn (composer, vocals, guitars, keys), Ji Tanzer (drums) and Kyleen King (bass). Highly narrative lyrics lurk within dynamic musical arrangements. Elements of rock, jazz and cinematic drama are blended confidently by seasoned players.
Robin Bacior with Grand Lake Islands-Feb 10th, 11th+12th @7pm
Robin Bacior’s voice speaks of a much older soul. With well-crafted folk vignettes softly painted in waltz timing, her songs reveal honest pictures with instrumentation as a medium to illuminate her lyrics.
Grand Lake Islands, the musical undertaking of Connecticut-born, Oregon songwriter, Erik Emanuelson and his humble compatriots. They crafts songs that can erupt in twangy free-for-alls, but at times stand bare-boned on a thin guitar line and a shaky voice.
Moody Little Sister- Feb 17th,18th+19th @7pm
"One is a smoky-voiced, piano-playing, 70's-inspired vixen; the other a dusty blues guitarist and singer"..
Naomi and Rob have taken this act all up and down the West Coast and are coming to you soon!
Sara Jackson-Holman- Feb 20th @7pm + 21st @9pm
It is literally from out of the blue that pianist/singer-songwriter Sara Jackson-Holman was launched onto the national music scene. For the then 20 year-old Whitworth University piano and writing student from Bend, Oregon, nothing could have prepared her for the trajectory her life was about to take.
