We have three music nights planned for August and September.
First up is a traveling modern folk act, Billy Mack, who will be playing this Thursday, August 14, from 6-8pm. It is hard work to be on tour, come out and show these guys some support.
Thursday, August 28 and September 11, Cannon Beach’s Wes Wahrmund Trio, featuring Stirling Gorsuch on bass and Jonathon Tate on drums will be back at it with their unique fusion of samba rhythms, world music and improvisational jazz. Also, 6-8pm with light refreshments, no cover charge!
Here is some more about this traveling minstrel.
About Billy Mack Collector
Billy Mack Collector is a folk music project by Billy Mack and any friends who might be around to sing, play, or stomp along. The songs are “Happy Songs About Being Uncomfortable, Food, and Community.”
Billy Mack travels the country by bus, foot, plane, train, bicycle, and car to sing songs in living rooms, gas stations, museums, coffee shops, art galleries, video stores, pizza places, bamboo forests, farms, fruit stands and anywhere else that might be willing.
Billy Mack Collector began recording in 2007 and touring in 2008. Since then, Collector has played in almost 200 cities, 45 states, and 3 Canadian provinces. Most recently, Billy toured (mostly solo) from November 20th, 2013 until April 8th, 2014 in support of the album “A Little Beet.” The new album, “It’s Okay To Carrot!” is available as of May 16th. (Both albums are available on cassette tape via Driftwood Records)
Currently, Billy Mack Collector is about to embark upon a multi-leg tour including a tour across the great plains and rocky mountains with Gina From Constantine (July 20th-August 22nd) and a tour down the East Coast with Jammypants (August 26th-September 12th)
