Cafe Artichoke

Posted by on Friday, January 28, 2011

 Hey all,

I finally made it over to Artichoke Music in SE Portland for their Friday night coffee house event. There were four "acts" of mainly singer/songwriter guitar playing but the first band was an old timey music type with some clawhammer banjo action. The lady playing banjo was quite good and I really enjoyed watching her play. 

Anyway, I just wanted to drop in and say "Hi" for a change.

My sister in-law lives in Portland. I love it there!

Speaking of Portland and bluegrass, you must check out Jackstraw (their "Live at the White Eagle" CD is awesome). They're from up there in Portland too, and one of my favorite BG bands. They're just a four piece, mandolin, two guitars, and bass, and all excellent musicians (especially Jon, the lead guitarist). I hope one day to go up there and maybe jam with one or two of them, my sister in-law tells me she knows the singer, he does her gardening/landscaping. Even gave my niece a music lesson once. One day maybe, we'll see.
