A Songwriter Circle with Cal Scott, Richard Moore and Chris Kokesh
This is gonna be fun, and maybe monthly. My old friends and brilliant singer-songwriters Cal Scott and Richard Moore have asked me to organize the pilot episode of what we hope will become a regular singer-songwriter circle. We want to bring together some some of the best local and touring acoustic artists for an informal monthly song swap.
We've invited Chris Kokesh to help launch the series. Chris is best known as the sweet-voiced fiddler with Misty River, and more recently with Brokentop, and as first-call harmony singer and fiddle player for just about everybody who tours Portland and has a clue. She has also won a pile of songwriting awards from festivals across the country.
Cal Scott is the multi-instrumental, multi-genre composer-guitarist-mandolinist- trumpeter-keyboard player who makes his living composing and producing scores for documentary films, tours the state with The Trail Band and the world with Irish fiddler Kevin Burke. And somewhere in the midst of all that he finds time to write some pretty wonderful songs.
Richard Moore writes funny songs that can make you cry, and sad songs that can make you smile. You know him from his day job, too, as the voice of dozens of TV and radio commercials from Pacific Power to Goodwill Industries, but his passion is sharing his original songs with an intimate audience. He's also working on a stage musical about Portland, and is likely to offer a sneak preview of some of the songs from Rain! The Musical.http://mooredick.com/
