7:30pm - All Ages
Portland, OR, USA
email Abby for address/directions and to reserve a seat!
I have been a fan of Mark’s for years - first through Tin Hat Trio, and more recently as the composer of many brilliant film scores (Nebraska, The Good Girl, Everything Is Illuminated - and this past summer's live score for Buster Keaton’s The General). He is an avid collector of antique and unusual instruments and is passionate about oldtime American music and modern classical music - a winning combination. Todd and I have a long history together as sidepeople in each others’ bands (Mischief & Mayhem!) and others’ projects too (Anais Mitchell, Ani Difranco, Allison Miller, Scott Amendola).. He is a great producer and arranger, has a rich solo catalogue, and leads one of the great jazz bands of the era called Tiny Resistors.
I have invited Todd and Mark to contribute songs to the set so expect a varied repertoire of acoustic music that is big on melody, rich in texture, and woven together with a hefty dose of improvisation. A debut!
Jenny Scheinman - violins
Mark Orton - banjo, guitar, percussion, marxophone, pump organ….??
Todd Sickafoose - bass
