CraigieWhiteRoofHi Everyone!

Another great concert is set for July 19 at 7:00pm. These great Portland based songwriters and players are playing to sold out crowds!

On a nice day we may go out to the deck to listen to music plus the sounds of the wild Alaska.  Bring a pair of sunglasses and sweater.

$15  Donation includes dessert.

Please call 234-7614  or email for a reservation. This help to plan for dessert and chairs.  John has been selling out shows all over the Northwest,  so plan early space is limited.

For the past decade, John Craigie has “lived the life romantic” of a continuously touring folk-singer, taking his unique musical style across the United States and the world. A singer, songwriter and storyteller, he stays true to the essence of folk music, and the traditions of the seminal writers of our past century. With timeless melodies and insightful lyrics—interspersed with witty storytelling—his songs take many poetic turns before bringing his listeners back home. His themes range from social commentary to personal empowerment, political satire, and modern love.

John’s live performances – in private homes, cafes, festivals, and sold-out venues – inspire and delight his audiences, who welcome him like a long-lost son, and return to see him whenever he visits. He has traveled around the world, having played in all 50 states and beyond, bringing his music to nearly every corner of the planet. His fans span generations, political ideologies and geographic locations, but they are all charmed by the dynamic yet humble troubadour peering out from under his signature cap.

John Craigie writes, sings, and plays for the people.

Leigh 2Leigh Jones is Portland based singer, writer and actor.   

She has had the itch to write songs most of her life, but it wasn’t until she received a ukulele as a Christmas gift in 2009 that she, at long last, began composing in earnest.  Leigh grew up in North Carolina, performing in local theatre whenever she had the chance, and eventually went on to earn a Drama degree from New York University’s Tech School of the Arts. Over the past three years, she has completed extensive tours throughout the US and abroad, and in the fall of 2012 she released her debut LP, Worth Wild.  Sparked by relationships, travel, and a keen sense of whimsy, Leigh’s music evokes the spirit of city life, while allowing her southern roots to shine gloriously through.  Drawing inspiration from such artists as Joni Mitchell, Emmylou Harris, Neko Case, and so many of her own peers, Leigh performs with the theatricality of a trained actor while her simultaneously sweet and dynamic melodies capture the soulfulness that is at the core of her songwriting.
