Winterfolk 22 - Benefit for Sisters of the Road Cafe

KBOO is a proud co-sponsor of Winterfolk 22

Winterfolk 22 is just around the corner, folks! Saturday, February 6th, join the folks from Sisters Of The Road at the historic Aladdin Theater in Portland for an evening of time-honored and new tunes by our fantastic folk friends. This year’s headliner is Peter Yarrow (of Peter, Paul and Mary)! Other performers will include:

  • Brian Cutean from Eugene, Oregon. Brian is one of Oregon’s unique musical treasures. Brian has performed his songs of spirit, whimsy, and power all over the United States, and is a mainstay of the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas.

  • The Artichoke Music All-Stars: Richard Colombo, Matt Meighan, Leela Grace, Ken Vigil and crew give a performance that epitomizes the “Artichoke Music Experience,” inspiring music and community on Portland’s SE Hawthorne Boulevard for over 30 years.

  • Nancy Conescu is a world traveler and renowned interpreter of traditional Irish Music. This will be Nancy’s 2nd Winterfolk appearance.

  • The Wanderers: Bill Murlin and Carl Allen, featuring the Columbia River Songs of Woody Guthrie. In 1941, Guthrie spent a month hired by the Bonneville Power Administration to write songs in the Northwest for a documentary movie telling of the industry and democracy at work at the Bonneville and Grand Coulee Dams. Bill and Carl have spent 20 years performing these inspiring songs at libraries, folk societies, and historical associations throughout the Pacific Northwest.

  • David Rea: an integral player in folk, heritage music and contemporary rip-snortin’ string-flashing for decades.

  • The Tom May Trio; the director and founder of “Winterfolk” returns with some new songs and stories from his travels, and celebrates the 25th anniversary of his national radio broadcast, “River City Folk,” this year.
