I know this may seem a little early but I do not know when I will get the chance to reach out to you again before the show. We will be hosting acoustic blues legend Mary Flower for a house concert on Sunday, March 29. Spring will have sprung by then and the days will be getting warmer. Come help us contribute to the warming trend by heating up the basement with some tapping feet and stretching smile muscles.
Mary Flower, a 2008 Blues Music Awards nominee for Acoustic Artist of the Year is known for her “uniquely personal vision of roots music that blends ragtime, acoustic blues, and folk styles.
She has also been a finalist in the National Fingerpicking Guitar Championships and has appeared on Prairie Home Companion. Mary is truly a national artist with worldwide following. This is your chance to see and hear her up close and personal with the intimacy only a house concert can provide.
Gary Furlow will provide a bit of his take on the New Orleans blues sound to open up the show. We will start at 7 pm with the door open at 6:30. The usual snacks will be provided and beer and wine will be available for which we suggest a modest donation.
We are located at 7326 SE Woodward St., PDX, 97206. You can reach me until January 31 and after March 12 at 503.730.3189. During the time in-between those dates Cheryl and I will be traveling in Southeast Asia, mostly Vietnam for a few weeks with a group of our friends. A friend will be staying here to see to the mail so to reserve your seats, send a check for the suggested donation of $20 to the address above. We truly look forward to seeing you and to hearing this fantastic musician do her bluesy stuff right here in the Tiki Room. Join us if you can and keep the music real.
As usual, we only reserve seat with advance submission of the suggested donation. Night of the show, the suggested donation will still be $20 but, if there are seats left, donate what you can. We really want to fill the house for Mary and provide a great show for you. Hoping to see you then.
