My new quartet Little One closes this show, supporting Dina Maccabee's solo viola/voice/electronics CD release tour, Stephanie Lavon Trotter opens. Dina Maccabee's solo viola+voice repertoire combines a life-long pursuit of classical, folk, and improvisatory approaches to her instrument; poignant songwriting; and a talent for defying expectations. Electronic processing has added depth, space, and complexity to her already warm and inviting string and vocal sounds. Recently the violist/backup vocalist for internationally renowned artist Julia Holter, Dina has also toured extensively since 2003. It'll sound kinda like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwvQ271yMcI Listen to a track from the new solo CD HERE! http://overblown.co.uk/dina-maccabee-5-things-that-inspired-go-ahead/ >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Stephanie Lavon Trotter uses her voice and Sound as a foundation for creating performative installations. She is reclaiming Opera; forming its unknown contours into something her own. Stephanie composes, and improvises with electronics and acoustically; in ensembles and solo. stephanielavontrotter.com >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Little One explores Americana, jazz, and chamber music through original works that aren’t afraid to share closely-held truths. The group’s first recording features songs dedicated to bandleader Douglas Detrick’s family—it is the most personal project he’s ever tackled, in a long line of intimate work. The quartet’s unconventional instrumentation—Detrick on clawhammer banjo, voice, and trumpet, William Seiji Marsh on guitar, Lauren Elledge on viola, and Andy Rayborn on bass clarinet—gives the group a unique ability to access sounds that no other group can. $10 at the door

A double bill show with the wonderful Anna Fritz! Cello-wielding folksinger Anna Fritz plays songs that crack you open and heal you. She creates a musical alchemy of cello and voice, strumming the cello like a guitar and playing beautiful melodies with the bow as she sings. Her songs boldly dig into themes of colonization, climate change, racial justice, gender, spirituality, and connection to the natural world. Like the great folksingers of previous generations, Anna is a catalyst for people to sing together. Her songs are infectious and easy to learn, imbued with a sense of timelessness as if they've been sung for generations. Her disarming, gentle nature and powerful presence gets unlikely crowds of people singing together from town halls to night clubs. Listeners will find plenty of rockstar cred in this folksinger's past. Anna Fritz is a sought after cellist with a 15 year tenure spanning the world of classical music and Portland, Oregon's indie rock scene. She toured nationally with Portland Cello Project for seven years and can be heard on albums from My Morning Jacket, Band of Horses, The Decemberists, case/lang/veirs, and the most recent release from First Aid Kit. As a solo artist, Anna has independently released three albums and performed for audiences in more than 50 venues in seven states. http://annafritz.com/

FREE

Double with Noah Kite and band at Strum! Strum Guitars -one of the few if not only places in Portland where tasty brews and beautiful guitars may treat yours senses as your fucking face loses its once gelatinous consistency like some raiders of the lost ark-esque claymation malfunction to sweltering, soulful, and moving live bands- will be hosting Noah Kite and Little One from 6:30 to 9. It's free. It's all ages. It's orchestral indie folk and its better arranged than any marriage. Little One combines Americana, jazz, and chamber music with original songs that aren’t afraid to share closely-held truths. The recording features songs dedicated to members of bandleader Douglas Detrick’s family with Detrick on clawhammer banjo, voice, and trumpet, William Seiji Marsh (Edna Vazquez, Cherry Poppin' Daddies) on guitar, Amanda Lawrence (Arco PDX) on viola, and Andy Rayborn (Kulululu) on bass clarinet—the group can access a unique palette of sounds. Noah Kite shapes pop, jazz, and classical influences to accent folk's lyrical poignancy. This chambered folk-rock uses its roots in a childhood of Ravel, Sade, Van Morrison, Enya, and Steely Dan to make melodic and poetic sense of experiences teaching, traveling, and touring abroad. While these dynamically orchestrated dramas find an expansively symphonic home on the eponymous record, in live settings arrangements are distilled to their essential workings; Kite’s guitar and voice are laced by the haunting oboe of Laura Gershman, the eclectic percussion of Alan Cook, and the impassioned alto sax of Jessica Paul to deliver each tune its own life.
