Mollie and I are ecstatic about and amazed by a recent bout of unsolicited offers to play in Portland. We are excited to share our music with our growing community of fans and friends, kith and kin, in the greater Portland area with three PDX shows in September.
September 1: Americana Showcase @ Alhambra Theater Grand Hall, featuring Rita Hoskin “This California girl comes by her mountain-music sensibility with true authenticity, with original songs deeply rooted in her family’s frontier experience,” (Dan Ruby, FestivalPreview.com)
September 21: Tigard – Details pending
September 27: Troutdale – Details pending
The two “details pending” offers came to us through Lisa Lepine, Portland’s “Promotion Queen.” Lisa is so pivotal in Portland’s music promotions that she is featured on CDBaby podcast #2! She has launched the careers of numerous artists and musicians like Dave Carter and Tracy Grammar who immortalized her phone number in a track on “Drum Hat Buddha.” We were generously gifted some consultation time with her, and were greatly encouraged by her feedback. She reassured us that we are doing a lot of things right, gave us some great ideas for moving forward, and has seen enough potential for our music in Portland that she has offered some bookings, too! Stay tuned as these details come onto our events calendar.
We hope to see our Portland supporters in September, and invite our Eugene folks to caravan with us. We’ll be all the more grateful for your smiling faces as we warm up to a new city!
