Friday, August 13, 8-10 pm award-winning songwriter Ron Shaffer performs a benefit for Ukraine. Shaffer has been featured on shows such as “Evening Becomes Eclectic” on KCRW and his latest record, Broken Windows, has gotten radio airplay around the world and wherever music is streamed.
Tickets are $20 and doors open at 7:30 pm. Seating is first come, first served. At the request of Shaffer, vaccination cards will be required as well as masks when not eating or drinking.
Mary Flower takes the stage with special guest Adam Scramstad Saturday, August 20, 7-9 pm for an evening of world-class solo/duo acoustic finger-style, ragtime, slide and blues guitar music.
Flower’s immense finger picking guitar and lap-slide prowess is soulful and meter-perfect, a deft blend of the inventive, the dexterous and the mesmerizing. Her supple honey-and-whiskey voice provides the perfect melodic accompaniment to each song’s story.
Adam Scramstad is an award winning solo acoustic finger-style, slide and blues musician, born and raised in Oregon. Scramstad’s repertoire covers a broad range of early American Folk and Blues and he is also known for his strong and creative songwriting. Tickets are $20 and doors open at 6:30 pm.
