I’m extremely excited to be playing with Ramana Vieira and her fado group in Oregon over the post-Thanksgiving weekend. The tour is promoting Ramana’s latest album, Fado da Vida. It will be my first visit to the state north from California and I’m very much looking forward to it.
We will hit the college town of Eugene first and then will play 2 shows in Portland. According to Wikipedia, “Eugene’s slogan is “A Great City for the Arts and Outdoors””, so, who knows, I might do some hiking after we’ve shared our art with the good people of Emerald City. My sole knowledge of Portland comes from Portlandia and I can’t wait to confront the reality with the myth.
Here are the concert details:
Friday, November 27th, The Jazz Station, Eugene;
Saturday, November 28th, 8 pm, WineUp on Williams, Portland;
Sunday, November 29th, 7 pm, Vie de Boheme, Portland.
