Songwriter Circle with Cal Scott and Richard Moore with special guest Beth Wood
August's Songwriter Circle was a smash hit with the sellout crowd at the Alberta Street Pub. Cal Scott, Richard Moore and special guest Chris Kokesh got a standing ovation and encore, a rare occurrence at this kind of show. So we're going to build on that success, this time on the west side at O'Connor's in Multnomah Village, with special guest Beth Wood, Monday, October 3 at 7:00pm.
Beth stood out among the many singer-songwriters I heard at last year's Sisters Folk Festival as a riveting presence on stage, whether solo or collaborating with her musical peers. She's won a string of festival songwriting competitions, including the prestigious Kerrville, Texas contest in 2005. Here are a couple of quotes from around the country:
"A superb singer/songwriter whose versatility discourages labeling." Fort Worth Star-Telegram
"Beth Wood is a musical triple-threat a thoughtful songwriter and talented multi-instrumentalist with a supple, soulful voice." Washington Post
Beth, originally from Lubbock, Texas, but settled into Eugene, doesn't spend much time in Oregon. Between now and the end of the year she'll play stages from Sisters to Newtown, PA, and then in February sets sail on a Caribbean musical cruise with the likes of Lyle Lovett, Lucinda Williams and John Prine. http://www.bethwoodmusic.com/
The usual suspects bookending Beth will be Cal Scott, jack-of-many-genres who writes and performs with The Trail Band and Kevin Burke, and the word-witty and tunewise Richard Moore, likely to share a few more scenes from "Rain," his musical-in-the-works about Portland. We heard a compressed version of Act 1 last month...well there's more. It continues to "Rain" in Richard's head and the characters are beginning to populate his dreams with songs and naughty euphemisms. Come on down and get a taste of Act 2.
Tickets are $10 each, from brownpapertickets.com or at the door. We ran out of seats at the last show, so don't think too long on this one.
