This year’s headliner is songwriting social activist David Roth. He sang his tune “Earth” for the fortieth anniversary of the United Nations and his thoughtful songs affect the conscience and consciousness of his listeners in the best way.
Also on the bill are longtime Sisters advocate Casey Neill; Dan Rhiger and Rahmana Weist, aka Sky in the Road; master songsmith Paul Sanchez; Dan Weber and Portland native Kelly Bosworth.
The annual raffle for a new guitar and a day of recording at Billy Oskay’s Big Red Studio as on and raffle tickets are at Artichoke Music and at the Aladdin the night of the concert.
Admission is $30 in advance and $32 at the door, available at Aladdin’s Box Office, their website and at Music Millennium. It’s an evening of giving with every dollar raised going to the people it is intended to help.
Sisters of the Road Café quietly continues to do its work of providing low cost and no cost meals in Portland’s Old Town downtown. Founded 36 years ago, Sisters remains a shining example of reaching out “helping to change peoples lives, one hot meal at a time”.
