O’Brien’s fluid voice is like no other and knows no boundaries. She makes herself at home in other writers’ material with power and grace, always respecting the deepest essence of a song.

Moore is a deft and tasty guitar player who colors O’Brien’s twists and turns from blues to traditional folk to jazz and creates a band with a single guitar.

The concert begins at 7:30 pm and advance tickets are $21 GA, $18 PFS member, $11.50 ages 12-18. Advance tix at portlandfolkmusic.org/concerts.php.
