It’s a new season of Portland FolkSong Society concerts and this month, the dynamic duo of Kate Power and Steve Einhorn share the evening with Sarah McQuaid. The concert is Friday, October 17, St. David of Wales Episcopal Church, 2800 SE Harrison St. and begins at 7:30 pm.
Kate Power and Steve Einhorn deliver “the real deal in a push-button world” – double guitars, banjo and ukuleles; two entertwined voices and thoughful tales. Formerly the heart of Artichoke Music, they have many albums between them and they’ve sung on A Prairie Home Companion. Romantic, funny, authentic, beautiful, Power is “one of the great voices of our time” and Einhorn is a spry finger-pickin storytelling songwriter. Together, they’re a joy to behold and loved by many.

Direct from Cornwall, England, Sarah McQuaid has been a favourite of folk DJs for several years. Her smoky voice and handcrafted originals compliment her approach to traditional singing and folk tales from around the globe. More at sarahmcquaid.com.
