*JULY 24th- Singer Songwriter Night with Maya Dorn, Libby Kirkpatrick & Marca Cassity*
Maya Dorn- With two decades of performing and producing music, and a lifetime of composing songs, Maya Dorn is no ordinary musical artist. She’s toured widely in a variety of forms: as a back up singer and dancer, as the front woman for an electronic dance band, as a solo singer songwriter, and as a DJ. Her clever lyrics and ability to improvise on the spot has made her a sought after collaborator and engaging live performer.
Marca Cassity- Two Spirit songwriter Marca Cassity delivers inspired folk rock spirit songs with a positive message, and Native American nuances, that speak to overcoming hardship through resilience in connection to nature, humor, love, compassion, spirituality, and heritage. Marca was raised in the Osage nation of Oklahoma and is now making a home in Portland, Oregon.
Libby Kirkpatrick- Libby’s music is a divine confluence of intimate story telling, haunting poetry,
her astonishing vocal range and skilled and polished musicianship. To experience Libby
live is to connect with your own soaring, traveling, and expansive heart.
*August 7th- Robin Jackson and the Caravan*
"A captivating song-crafter, a true storyteller." - NPR.
Award winning Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Robin Jackson, known for his wild, theatrical contributions to bands like Vagabond Opera and the March Fourth Marching Band, has brought a strong presence to the world of indie folk. Mr Jackson, often joined by his all-star six piece ensemble of NW musicians The Caravan, draws upon the moody spirit of his rain-soaked, Portland, Or. home to create an eclectic brew of dreamy folk-pop, cinematic indie rock and above all, enigmatic storytelling.
With a degree in ethnomusicology and an unflagging musical curiosity, Jackson has lived and busked around the world, from an intentional beach community in New Zealand to the streets of Europe. He is a master of a myriad of instruments, from saxophone to mbira and has also performed or recorded with notable acts such as Gregory Allen Isakov, Emancipator, Devotchka, and Amanda Palmer. An impresario of community and collaboration, Jackson has built on his colorful, bohemian upbringing and dedicated himself to creating and supporting music around Portland, Or where he lives on an urban farm with his cat and a circus. His newest album, Dark Stars, was recorded in the legendary Type Foundry Studios and is available everywhere.
