Gideon Freudmann at Doverlaff, May 14, 2016

Gideon Freudmann HC Poster-001

Hello Music Fans, 

 
After another great show last week with David Jacob-Strain, Bob Beach and Caleb Paul we here at Doverlaff House Concerts are getting ready for out next show. Sure to be a great experience.  Gideon Freudmann, Cello-Bop master will bring his unique sound to our little stage.  Be sure to be there. 
 
This show will be a step out of the deep groove of Folk, Americana and Roots you usually expect from Doverlaff but we think you are going to love it.  We first heard Gideon at the old Mississippi Studios many years ago.  We were fascinated by his use of Cello, looper and effects pedals to produce a unique multi-layered sound that is nothing less than entrancing. 
 
We hope you enjoy the material below. Even more, we hope you can join us on Saturday, Ma 14 for what promises to be a fine evening of some unusual music from a master musician. Suggested donations for this show will be $20 per seat.  Snack provided and beverages available.  We have not settled on an opening artist at this time. Watch this space for more on that. 
 
In case the show fills completely up, we suggest reservations via pre payment of the suggested donation.  You can send checks to us at 7326 SE Woodward St., Portland, Oregon, 97206. Make checks out to Dan Dover (not Doverlaff House Concerts.) Put Gideon Freudmann House Concert in the memo line.  You can reach Dan for question, directions or whatever at 503.730.3189.
 
We look forward to seeing you at the show.
Here is some of the press buzz about Gideon and his music:

“Gideon Freudmann is a talented, experimental cellist that got the ear of producers from NPR’s All Thing’s Considered. There is sense of humor, a spirit of eclectic adventure, and a mastery of classic and jazz forms in these pieces. This fusion of talent & experiment makes for a peerless and unforgettable collection of gems.”

 Perfect Sound Forever

“Taking a modern artist’s approach to the four-stringed instrument, Gideon Freudmann has brought the cello to a new realm. His latest album is a dreamy, cinematic tour-de-force!”

– The Boston Globe

“Freudmann sounds like nothing less than a cutting-edge, avant-garde musician, whose genre-bending exploits combine aspects of performance art, new-classical, psychedelia and comedy, a sort of cross between Kronos Quartet and Leo Kottke.” – Berkshire Eagle

“Gideon is sharp, witty, prolific, talented… A cross between Woody Allen, Frank Zappa, and a touch of Peter Schikele” – Maine Public Radio

“17 tracks of twisted, madcap songs, slightly along the lines of Syd Barrett or Robyn Hitchcock, if they had ever tripped out on cello, with a little Dan Hicks humor for sanity. The melodies were memorable, totally infectious, swirling with a psychedelic vertigo and an occasional Beatlesque moment.” – Dirty Linen

David Jacob Strain at Doverlaff April 17

David J. Strain  HC Poster-001

 

Sunday, April 17, Doverlaff House Concerts will host slide guitar phenom David Jacob Strain along with his side man, on harmonica, Bob Beach.  The show will start at 7 p.m. with an opening set by Portland’s own Caleb Paul.
 
We first heard David when he was a 16 year old slide guitar prodigy at the Vancouver (B.C.) Folk Festival.  We think he is 27 now and has a lot more experience and thousands more hours on the the guitar and has certainly achieved what Malcolm Gladwell referred to as the criterion for mastery, 10000 hours doing the thing.  Truly as maven of the slide guitar, fully competent on the slide guitar canon and with many great original tunes.  
 
Those of you who attended Sister’s Folk Festival in 2008  may have caught him there. He plays with side man, harmonica great, Bob Beach.
 
Some stuff from reviews:
 
Todd Snider said “This kid’s gonna be a superstar and I want a cut on his next album”
 
Jorma Kaukonen adds“He is just one of these guys who is in his own class. A great singer and guitar player.”
 
From Guitar Player Magazine this, “David Jacobs-Strain sings and plays slide-driven country blues with a passion and authority that few artists of any age can muster. But besides firing off compelling covers of traditional tunes. . . his original songs have served to update and evolve the idiom, winning widespread respect from the contemporary blues community.”
 
From the Washington Post, “His acoustic and electric guitar work is crisp and driven, and his voice can rise to a soulful pitch or fall quietly in sync with a loping beat. His imagery-rich tales—well, it’s not hard to imagine some of them being covered by the likes of John Hammond Jr. . . . or Boz Scaggs
 
Maybe a few You Tube videos will give you more perspective: 
Caleb Paul will open.  We think you will really love Caleb’s singing and guitar work.  He blew us away the first time he attended our Doverlaff Songwriters Circle.  A beautiful voice and great guitar chops define his performing. 
 
The show will start at 7 p.m. with a short set by Caleb.  We will have the usual snacks and drinks available.  Come join us for another great show at Doverlaff.  $20 suggested donation, all of which goes to David.  Seats are only guaranteed by advance payment of the suggested donation. You can send, or hand deliver them to us at 7326 SE Woodward St. Portland, Oregon 97206. You can reach Dan for questions or directions at 503.730.3189.
 
We sure hope to see you here.

We have a few more shows coming up in our 2015-16 season including:

Folk Legend David Mallet, on June 12

John Craigie House Concert Saturday, March 19, 2016

John Craigie House Concert-001
Hey Music Lovers,

The musical juggernaut  that is the Doverlaff House Concert Series rolls on, despite a few bumps on the road.
Many of you probably do not know that we were supposed to host Elyza Gylkison last night.  The offer for the show csame last minute. We had it confirmed the day of our Danny Schmidt show last month. We announced it at the show and essentially filled the show that night. We notified a couple of our die hard regulars and completed filling within a few days.  We even paid to reschedule our return from Mexico a day earlier. Then, Monday, we received word that they would have to cancel.  Total bummer. Nina Gerber, guitarist extraordinaire, was to accompany Eyza, but her dog became terminally ill and she had to cancel to tour.  But, they promise to reschedule another show, maybe two for the fall.  Watch this space for more on that.
On the brighter side, our March 19 show with iconoclastic singer-songwriter, John Craigie approaches rapidly. We had John here a couple of years ago and it was a great show. John is quite funny and his humor informs most of his songs.  A good friend of the Shook Twins, he brought them along to join him on a couple of tunes.  We are very excited about this show.
Why, you may ask? Well lets see what others have had to say on the matter.
Jason Felton of Record Department Music Reviews on John’s album “The Apocalypse is Over” wrote, “Modern day troubadour John Craigie spent most of past decade crisscrossing the United States and traveling abroad on tour. A singer, songwriter and storyteller, his songs are filled with memorable melodies and finely crafted, socially conscious lyrics about politics, modern life, and love. Craigie’s latest release, The Apocalypse Is Over, was influenced by time spent in New Orleans, resulting in the addition of horns, piano and other creole instruments to the mix. The album is filled with expressive vocals and instrumentation, showcasing Craigie’s own immense talent as well as the accomplished chops of his backing band. Highlights include: the toe-tapping opening track Innocent In My Arms; the plaintive ballad Rachel; the fun loving and determined We Ain’t Leaving This Bar, Patrick (Til We Find You Some Love); and the catchy I Wrote Mr. Tambourine Man. If you haven’t heard of John Craigie, I recommend you pick this one up followed by his back catalog. And if you have, then add this to your collection immediately.
Jam Band Friendly’s, also on “The Apocalypse is Over” penned, “John just released the album The Apocalypse Is Over, a brilliant masterpiece that’s gotta make waves in the music world.  If it doesn’t there is something wrong.  This one screams of professionalism, grace and eloquence with tracks that you could listen to over and over again…We all have to use road-maps sometimes to get to the destinations we’re searching for.  John’s road-map is a soulful, American-music structure that incorporates top-notch musicians, high-class engineering and a sound that is contagious.  Play this album over and over again on a Sunday to start your week and I promise that your world will be lifted up and your spirit taken to a new level.  Throughout the week you’ll reflect back to John’s lyrics, the music and his harmonica as biblical lessons to get you through the challenges of life.”
And here are a few videos to give you a better feel for his music.
John Craigie Profile by Jason Boritz
We really like John.  We hope, and think, you will to.  A very unassuming performer he is very funny, yet very sincere.
As usual, we request $20 per seat donations.  Guarantee your seat by sending a check for the suggested donation made out to Dan Dover with John Craigie House Concert in the memo line to us at 7326 SE Woodward Street, Portland, 97206.  You can reach Dan at 503.730.3189 for questions or directions.

ELYZA GYLKISON SHOW CANCELLED

Elyza Cancelled-001Due to family illness on the part of Nina Gerber, Elyza Gylkison’s guitarist, we sadly must cancel the Elyza Gilkyson concert scheduled for this Friday, February 19th. We just learned of this situation this morning. Elyza’s management promises to reschedule another show, possibly two, in the fall.

In the 7 years we have been doing shows we have only cancelled one other show, that due to the death of John Smith’s friend. We are very sorry about any inconvenience this may cause you.

If you sent us a check, we will destroy the check. If you paid your donation in cash we will return it to you or apply it to a future show, as you prefer.

Again, we are so sorry and disappointed at this turn of events but look forward to hosting Elyza and, hopefully, Nina in the fall.

We will be back home on the 19th so if you have questions please call us then as we have no cell service in Mexico.

Please let us know that you received this message.

We look forward to hearing from you or seeing you at an upcoming show. We will host John Craigie on March 19, David Jacob Strain on April 17 and Gideon Freudman on May 14.

See you soon,

Cheryl and Dan

Danny Schmidt, Wednesday, January 20, 2015

 

 

 

Danny Schmidt HC 2015-001
Hello Music Lovers,

 
We have had a little break since we hosted out last house concert, a totally amazing show with Martin Joseph in October.  I think that is good.  Too many shows starts to wear on us but, it is time for more music from Doverlaff. 
 
On Wednesday, January 20th at 7 pm we will host another of our all time favorite singer-songwriters, a Martin Guitars official artist and amazing wordsmith, Danny Schmidt.  This will be Danny’s 4th appearance at Doverlaff putting him among the top 3 frequent performers, all also Dans, Danny Schmidt, Dan Weber and yours truly. 
 
If you know Danny Schmidt, the rest of this email is superfluous.  If you don’t, it’s time you did.  Danny is that perfect combination of great guitar player and amazing song-writer and sincere and humorous performer.  His last performance here was in the garden with his wife, the incredible Carrie Elkin.  It was the only show for which we got busted by the cops for excessive noise. This show will not get busted and will not be too loud. I promise.
 
Some reviewer comments: 
 
From NetRhythms  UK

Danny has a hell of an imagination, but one which doesn’t exclude his listeners, whom he holds in rapt attention throughout his storytelling and ruminations. I was so impressed with this album I just had to investigate further, and it turns out that Parables & Primes is Danny’s fourth CD, recorded back in 2005 and only just now gaining a UK release; apparently there’s a further new album on the way as we speak, which I’m looking forward to immensely.

Parables & Primes is an absolutely outstanding singer-songwriter album by any standards, truly one of the finest and most individual I’ve heard this year, and I’m glad to report that Danny’s going to be touring the UK briefly next month.

From Sing Out! Magazine

“Danny Schmidt is a force of nature: a blue moon, a hundred-year flood, an avalanche of a singer-songwriter. His songs are a flood of poetry, mythology, folk wisdom, and surprise.”
– Matt Watroba, Sing Out! magazine

From Austin Chronicle

“In today’s underground folk world, Danny Schmidt is spoken of in reverent tones, drawing comparisons to Leonard Cohen, with a poetry that breathes naturally and without pretension, with results that are both attractive and intense.”
– Jim Caligiuri, Austin Chronicle

Here are a few You Tube videos you may like. Many more are available there: 
 
 
 
 
 
Unfortunately,  Google has labeled us as spammers so some of there messages will not get through.  It seems to be getting worse, so, friend me on Facebook (Dan Dover) and like our page (Doverlaff House Concerts) so you will know about our shows in the future if the blocking problem gets worse.  You can also check out and bookmark our web site at doverlaffhouseconcerts.org.
 
So, if your interest is whetted, let us know that you plan to attend.  This show will almost definitely fill up fast.  The only guarantee for seats is advance donation of the suggested $20 per seat.  You can send checks to us at Dan Dover, 7326 SE Woodward St., Portland, Oregon 97206.  You can reach Dan at 503.730.3189 for questions or directions.  
 
Our opener for this show will be Jan Hutchison, a member of our Doverlaff Songwriters Circle gang and singer of bluesy, sexy originals and covers.  We think you will love her as well.  Jan plays around town and joined us this past summer for the first time in the Pacific City Folk Festival.

Martyn Joseph Wednesday October 7th

 

Martyn Joseph House Poster-001

 

It is official!!!.  We will be hosting, from Wales, amazing singer songwriter and alpha Bruce Springsteen fan, Martyn Joseph for a house concert  ON WEDNESDAY, October 7th.  We really need to get at least 30 people for this show, so, we hope you can come and bring your friends.

We have seen Martyn twice. Once at Sisters Folk Festival and again at the Alberta Rose.  He is a helluva performer and song writer.  He has a great love of America and American music (especially Bruce Springsteen) but is not beyond a little critique of our sometimes inane behavior.  We are so happy to have this last minute opportunity and hope you can come despite the short notice.

Some blurbs from the press:

“Springsteen-indebted Americana, suspended folk chords glistening beneath troubadour tales, his lyrical eloquence still inspired almost 30 years on from his debut”

MOJO

“One of acoustic music’s most original voices, and most forward looking of his generation of singer/songwriters”|
Q Magazine

“A profound experience”
The Boston Globe

“Songs of social commentary as much as love, with a rootsy sensibility”
Time Out

“Written with craft, performed with passion”
Financial Times

He is one of our most intelligent writers. He gets better and better like the finest of wines”
Bob Harris – BBC Radio 2

“Britain`s best kept secret……a challenging songwriter and a compelling courageous live performer”
MoJo 4* review

From Martyn’s Bio:

Martyn Joseph 2015

Martyn Joseph is a powerful singer and songwriter gifted with the rare ability to speak to the soul with his expressive and poignant lyrics. With a career spanning 30 years, 32 albums, over a half a million record sales and thousands of live performances, the versatility of his music touches genres of folk, rock, soul, folk-funk and Americana, yet somehow all these labels cannot define the spirit of his music.

Compared to Bruce Springsteen, John Mayer, Bruce Cockburn and Dave Matthews, he has created his own style and reputation as a mesmerising live performer and stands in his own right, built on a reputation for giving what thousands have described as the best live music experience of their lives. A unique talent driven by passion, social awareness and love for his trade, his music manages to empower and speak for the many. He’s a jaw dropping guitar player who has developed a unique percussive style, teamed up with a powerful show stopping voice, and has been called “The Welsh Springsteen”

Martyn was awarded Best Male Artist at the 2004 BBC Welsh Music Awards and in 2012 his song “There’s Always Maybe” won the best folk song category in the World Independent Music Awards. In addition to his 5 top 50 UK hits, the importance of his work has been recognised by programmes such as BBC 2’s prime time series on Singer/Songwriters. Social justice has an essential presence throughout his music, which has been recognised with various humanitarian awards and plaudits.

Concerned with making music that is relevant and vital to his audience, he engages with challenging narratives tackling the complexity of the human condition underpinned with a promise of hope. In his own words “Really what I do is to try and write songs that might step up and make some sense of a moment in time. A good song makes you feel like you’re not alone in the world.” There is a versatility to Martyn’s music that is hard to categorise. Many have tried, resulting in labels such as Folk, Rock, Soul, Folk Funk and Americana; all of which somehow miss the mark. But sometimes music doesn’t need a defining genre and with the ability to articulate a sense of the bigger picture, Martyn’s music and social commentary manage to empower and speak for many. His songs are pictures, and stories, and feelings all put to music and delivered by a master craftsman.

“Songs For The Coming Home”, his most recent self-penned studio album, is filled with snap shots and images from his personal journey. “At the heart of this record is the notion that we are always striving to return. Returning to a place of solace, understanding, compassion, a place of justice, mercy and peace. That despite the carnage around us we can still save the day.”

Upon the release of the album BBC Radio 2’s Bob Harris said “Martyn is one of our most intelligent writers. He gets better and better.” Described as a cinematic journey through continents via his trademark ‘one take’, up close sound with stunning instrumentation, “Songs For The Coming Home” resonates with raw performance. Incorporating this element of live presentation into the recording process, preserves the spirit of this charismatic live solo performer.

In 2013 Martyn released a CD of Bruce Springsteen songs, to great public and critical acclaim, with the glowing endorsement of Dave Marsh, acclaimed American music critic and official Springsteen biographer.

2014 saw him take the spirit of his music onto a more practical footing with the launch of his “Let Yourself Trust”, a not-for-profit organisation which aims to make a small difference out of great love and commitment by challenging injustice wherever it’s found, educating via advocacy, campaigning for human rights, and raising issues that have been forgotten or ignored via fundraising initiatives, thus bringing about greater awareness for beautiful people in powerless situations

He has won the love of audiences from USA and Canada to Europe through an impressive number of live dates, and has previously toured with the likes of Art Garfunkel, Jools Holland, Ani DiFranco, Suzanne Vega, Mike and The Mechanics, Joan Armatrading, Celine Dion and Shirley Bassey. He is hailed as a raconteur weaving tales on topical concerns, as well as stories on the fragility of love, with a magical ability to reach out to his listeners through his passion and humour. Stunning reviews single him out as an unmissable solo performer whose music stays with you long after the show has ended.

As I said, we really love Martyn and are so excited to have this last minute opportunity..  The suggested donation will be $20.  We will start the show at 7 pm on Thursday, October 8th.

Let us know,

Cheryl and Dan

Andrew Goncalves show moved to 7 p.m.

Music lovers,

The heat wave that has been broiling the Portland shows no sign of letting up. Due to the heat, we are moving the Andrew Goncalves House Concert to 7 pm. The evenings seem to be cooling off by that time and will surely be pleasant by the time the show gets going.

We hope to see you here at 7 p.m., Sunday July 5 for more great music.

Andrew Goncalves with Boris Popadiuk Sunday, July 5

Andrew G. HC Poster 2-001

Music Lovers,

Cheryl and I are winding down our 2014-15 Doverlaff House Concerts series. As you know, The Birds of Chicago will be here next Thursday, June 25. We are very happy to have the Birds back for their second appearance in the Tiki room. We will not be able to do this show outside as it is a weeknight and we do not want to cause our neighbors any distress. So we will see you next Thursday here for another great show.

But that is not why I am writing today. We have added a final show to this years season. Our good friend, Andrew Goncalves, will be here for a second CD release party for his new recording “Fire Inside”‘ on Sunday, July 5. We hope you can be here.

If you received our previous message about this show you will note that that evil monster auto correct changed his name to Congalves each time I entered it. It NOT Concalves, but Goncalves, Andrew Goncalves, extraordinary guitar player, singer and songwriter. If you are a regular at Artichoke Music,you have heard him sing his wonderful song “Kentucky Blue.” You can bet you will get to heard that song again, as well as the other songs from his new CD and, I am sure, some surprises.

Andrew puts all of himself into the music….every strum, drumbeat, and belted out melody that he sings. His guitar playing is clean and diverse, varying from fingerstyle to percussive with some flamenco overtones. His music and lyrics are infused with his time out on the road of life, and the timeless search for home. Andrew recorded his first album with the band “Boa Saida” back in 2010 and has just completed his long awaited first solo album, Fire Inside.

Here are some other songs by Andrew to give you a taste, if you are not already familiar with his work. If you are, here is a chance to listen again.

Magic Show

Knock, Knock

Out on the Road

Andrew will be accompanied by his old band mate, from his days with Boa Saida, Boris Popaduik, (here playing Julie O – be sure to click) and, just maybe, his sister, Oksana. Boris is a native of Portland, Oregon and a graduate of Oberlin Conservatory. He currently serves as a graduate teaching assistant at the Frost School of Music in Miami, Florida, where he is getting a masters in cello performance. Trained as a classical cellist, Boris eagerly explores a wide array of genres. He has performed and recorded with classical, jazz and pop artists, from Jeremy Denk and the Punch Brothers to Gloria Estefan and Barry Manilow. Boris is a budding improviser and is determined in his efforts to liberate himself from the shackles of sheet music.

Of course, words don’t count, unless they are being sung. Come join us on Sunday, July 5 to the words and licks that matter.. Suggested donation $10-15 dollars. Of course, you can always donate more. Snacks will be available as will beer and wine, for which we suggest a small donation.

We are located at 7326 SE Woodward St.
Portland, 97206
You can reach Dan at 503.730.3189

Birs of Chicago, Thursday, June 25 7 p.m.

BOC HC Poster 5-001

We are coming again to the end of another great season of music here at Doverlaff House Concerts and we are closing out the season with a high flying act, The Birds Of Chicago. The Birds will be landing here on Thursday June 25 at 7 p.m. If this show is anything close to the last time they played in the Tiki Room, you better not miss it.

A cursory glance over their press page reveals references totheir music as anything from folk to gospel, to country to jazz. Truly uncategorizable,the Birds of Chicago bring energy, inventiveness, musicianship, great enigmatic songwriting, humor and verve to their performances. A totally infective and affecting sound that will have you smiling and singing lines from their songs for months.

Some of that previously alluded to press:

“Everyone at Folk Alliance was talking about this band built around husband and wife Allison Russell and JT Nero. The acclaim was earned. Allison comes off like a demure young lady with a delightful Toronto accent when she speaks, but when she sings, she’s Aretha Franklin. They performed original music, folk with a rock bend, with a touch of gospel thrown in. By the end of the festival, their shows were standing-room only, if you could get into the room at all.” (Cleveland Plain Dealer – Mar. 2014)

“Top Ten Country Albums of 2014” (London Telegraph – August, 2014)

“[Birds of Chicago] have discovered a power in their collective that creates some truly spine tingling moments. Mix a little gospel, a little soul, plenty of country attitude and you get the semblance of the forces at play here. Heard live, this couple display a spirit in performance that is really special and conjures up the celebratory feel of a revival meeting.” (Lonesome Highway – May, 2014)

“Apart, JT Nero (in JT and The Clouds) and Allison Russell (as Po’ Girl), are superb and a joy on the ear. Together as Birds of Chicago they are exceptional. All of the good things about them are here. Russell’s voice is a wonderful weapon and the band cook likes demons crossing over gospel and rock with ease. ‘Live From SPACE’ represents them as they should be – live and unchained.” Four Stars. (Music News – UK, April 2014)

Maybe some pictures and sound may better get the message across. Try these videos from their website:

Introducing the Birds of Chicago
I Have Heard Words
The Moonglow/ The Tapeworm
The Trampoline

I hope these videos give you a sense of the Birds of Chicago if you do not already know them. If you do, you do not really need my efforts to convince that this will be a great show. We hope you will join us On June 25 at 7 pm for this sure to be entertaining show.

We will have Paul Kwitek here that night as well doing a short opening set. Paul new CD is totally refreshing and fun. We attended his cd release and it was simply killer. Here is his Restless from a show at the Brickhouse in Vancouver and his Schwinn Typhoon from a show at the White Eagle.

If like this sort of thing, be sure to join us. As usual the suggested donation it $20. I am sure this show will fill to capacity fast. If you would like to attend let me know and I will put you on the list. The only way to guarantee a seat for this show is to send the suggested donation in advance. Send a check, made out to Dan Dover, with Birds of Chicago in the memo line, to 7326 SE Woodward St., PDX, 97206. If you have questions or need directions, you can reach Dan at 504.730.3189. We will have snacks for free and beer and wine is available and we suggest a modest donation for those.

Attached is a copy of the poster for this show. See you soon and keep the music playing.
