Joanne Rand CD Release Concert
"Rand's voice raises your hair, elegance and fierceness in the same deep breath" Gary Snyder
Come celebrate the release of Joanne's 13th CD, The Nashville Sessions, in an intimate house concert setting.
Dubbed "Psychedelic-Folk-Revival," California singer-songwriter Joanne Rand comes to Portland, OR for a Concert on Friday, April 26 at 7:30 PM, celebrating the release of her 13th CD, "Stories from the Inside Out, The Nashville Sessions."
Tickets are $10-15 suggested donation at the door. Rand will also appear live on KBOO's "Movin' On" folk show the same day at 12:45.
Touring nationally for a quarter of a century, Joanne Rand "continues to push the art pedal to the floor," releasing her 13th CD, "The Nashville Sessions," a mix of songs recorded during her 2012 guitar apprenticeship in the U.S. music capital. Rand has appeared with the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Bob Weir, John Hartford, and recently earned a BFA in Music Composition. Rand's 2010 CD release was submitted for Grammy nomination by San Francisco Recording Academy's President. You can't keep this woman down, her last four CDs (of original songs) were released in the past four consecutive years and in 2012 she toured from border to border in the U.S. Rand will give a short preview performance on KBOO 90.7 FM community radio on Friday the 26th starting at about 12:45 PM, also streaming live at www.kboo.fm.
The concert is presented by Laurie Sonnenfeld, celebrating 30 years as a folk music program host on KBOO 90.7 FM, and also 25 years as a Portland residential real estate broker. "This is the 4th house concert I have hosted for Joanne since 2004," she said. "It's more than a concert. Her work evokes a sense of community and connectedness." Space is very limited so reserve early.
"Through her songs, Rand traverses love, politics, conservation, spirituality and life with a seasoned-to-perfection voice, that, according to Terry Tempest Williams, 'Opens the doors of creation'."
