River Grove House Concert

Private House Concert, Lake Oswego, Oregon

Outdoor house concert in River Grove, west of Lake Oswego. A lovely and lush garden space with room to relax in the shade on a summer day. I will be joined and supported by in-demand keyboardist and vocalist Jean-Pierre Garau, well known in Portland music circles and beyond. We will likely tackle a few of his tunes while we're at it. Recent shows with JP have been super fun and incredibly musical... he is a master at adding texture. Parking at Pilkington Park. Just a stone's long throw from the Tualatin River. Bring snacks to share and your preferred beverage.

Suggested donation $20-25. Please contact Marta to RSVP: imartal@me.com

House Concert w/ Scott Martin

Chateau Relaxo, West Seattle, Washington

Another return engagement at the beautiful home in West Seattle known among friends as "Chateau Relaxo."

Looking forward to again joining my good friend, Austin songwriter and fingerstyle guitarist Scott Martin, for a house concert overlooking Puget Sound with a gorgeous westerly view. I'll be on bass and backup vocals and will play a few tunes of my own. May even break out the piano. We'll hope for another gorgeous sunset as in 2021. Scott has just released his latest album project in March 2022, entitled "Corner of the World", which is receiving wonderful reviews in industry media covering Folk and Americana music. Bring snacks and beverages to share, along with your favorite lawn chair.

$25 donation. RSVP to fredhammerquist55@gmail.com https://scottmartinsongs.com/
