2nd Saturday, Community Celtic Concert with Stringed Migration
Doors 6:45, two sets and one intermission. Cd's will be available to purchase.

Portland, Oregon, has long been a hot bed for creative Celtic music. The latest to crawl out from under the covers is Elizabeth Nicholson and Stringed Migration. As the name suggests, there are lots of sizzling acoustic instruments: fiddles, harp, viola, guitar, bouzouki and double bass, with occasional forays into violectra, whistles and electric bass. The fact that Nicholson plays harp, sings in a high soprano, and flavors Celtic music with world seasonings invites comparisons to Loreena McKennitt, but Nicholson's repertoire is even broader. Expect everything except the usual assortment of jigs and reels; Stringed Migration like to do things such as pair "The Unquiet Grave" with a Lebanese medley, an Irish hornpipe with a Romanian hora, or a 14th Century Italian tune with a Swedish waltz whose melody is so full of sixteenth notes that it ricochets more than sashays. Solid vocal work completes a wonderful album and, true to form, Stringed Migration rounds their magical ten-track release not with a bothy ballad, but an American shape-note hymn.
-Rob Weir, Sing Out!
