Cal Scott Band in Concert
Matt Miner Presents, sponsor Hearing Health and O'Connor's Vault present singer-songwriter Cal Scott with a supporting cast of some of Portland's finest musicians, Saturday July 9 at 7:30pm.
Cal Scott http://calscottmusic.com/ is a Portland singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. His CD, Carved Wood Box, received widespread nationwide radio-play in 2013. He was awarded First Place in the Great American Song Contest for Paid Too Much for the Diamond, and Second Place in the Dallas (TX) Songwriters Contest for Smallest Act of Kindness, both from the CD.
Cal is supported in the Band by four incredible musicians: Dan Stueber, drums; Ted Swenson, bass; Ben Blechman, violin; and Brian Rose, keyboards. All are steeped in rock, jazz and swing traditions, and bring exciting improvising and groove playing to the shows.
"We had the great good fortune to have Cal Scott at our concert series and we could not have asked for a more enjoyable evening of music. Cal's beautifully crafted songs took us through a tasting menu of poignant story telling, insightful reflection and light-hearted hilarity. From percussive, syncopated rhythms to bright, clear, finger styled tunes, Cal demonstrated his mastery of the guitar.
If you appreciate great writing, musicianship, and performance that only years of experience can deliver don't miss a chance to spend an evening with Cal Scott." --John Harper, Round House Concerts
