Stone Records recording artist Aaron Larget-Caplan and EWM Records artist Peter Janson return to perform in Portland OR on Monday, June 26th at The Little Church, 5138 NE 23rd Ave (one block north of Alberta Street in the Alberta Arts District), Portland OR 97211 as part of their 14-date summer west-coast tour that has them performing from Seattle to Phoenix. Their concert, A World of Guitar: Virtuoso Guitar Music from Six Continents introduces guitar music from around the world, performed with artistry and technical mastery, stemming from the vastly rich variety of human culture as expressed in its guitar music: songs that cross genres and styles from americana and celtic, to classical and flamenco, to world-jazz-fusion for an unforgettable musical adventure. A World of Guitar features music for solo guitar, and duets, that reveal a mutual devotion to the heart, soul, and inspiration of great guitar music from around the world. Avid solo performers, their shows bring world-class guitar playing to the concert stage: music that not only entertains, but is also evocative and engrossing, with roots in tradition and a sense of history, while addressing and capturing the sounds, rhythms, and urgency of our contemporary world. Music that is further brought to life by sharing the origins, humor, stories and legends of each piece. Of their new tour, Janson says, "Our ‘A World of Guitar’ tours are so special to me because Aaron and I share this wonderful devotion to the heart and soul of acoustic guitar music, and to the music that is tied to a global history and tradition. And in each concert we get to bring forth the highest level of emotive qualities of the music while making it fresh and authentic. Our goal is to help people have a great night out listening to some cool, if sometimes obscure, music. We have performed thousands of concerts during our combined years on the music scene: headline concerts from Russia, Europe and across the United States including Aaron at the El Palacio de Linares (Madrid, Spain), Yelagin and Sheremetev Palaces and the St. Petersburg Conservatory (Russia), Mantova Chamber Music Festival, Corte Eremo and Castillo de Galeazza (Italy), Crocker Art Museum (Sacramento, CA), Jordan Hall, (Boston, MA), and myself at the Montreal Jazz Festival (Canada), the Healdsburg Guitar Festival (CA), the Argenta Acoustic Music Series (Little Rock, AR), the WUMB Music Festival (Boston, MA) and more.”

Downtown Portland contains an extensive collection of classically influenced buildings, many of which are clad with glazed terra cotta, a building material that was at its height of popularity in the early 20th century. You’ll see the city’s first “skyscraper”, a bank that could have been a Greek temple and learn about several architects from this period who left an indelible impression on Portland including A.E. Doyle, the firm of Whidden and Lewis, and the Reid Brothers from San Francisco.

Geary began his career in NYC’s East Village performing at the acclaimed Sin-é cafe with artists including his friend, Jeff Buckley. Time Out called Geary, “... one of the East Village's favorite adopted sons." Over the last 20 years Geary has toured across Europe, the US and Australia, and has shared the stage with Glen Hansard, The Swell Season, The Frames, Josh Ritter, Bell X1, Coldplay, Elvis Costello, The Pretenders and Joe Strummer, to name a few. Critics describe Geary as the "quintessential singer-songwriter" and his records have been hailed as encapsulating boisterous joy - and gentle, delicate moments evoking comparisons to artists including Van Morrison, John Lennon, Elliott Smith and Richard Thompson. His body of work features 5 studio albums, 2 live recordings and collaborations including the release of a charity version of his song 'Christmas Biscuits' with Glen Hansard in aid of St Vincent De Paul in Ireland. In 2005 he scored the film Loggerheads, followed by Steel City (2006) and TriBeCa Film Festival favorite, Sons of Perdition (2010). Geary recently completed a headline spot on the critically acclaimed European tour, Songs from Ireland: Old and New. Geary is touring the United States during summer 2017 to support his forthcoming 5th studio album titled The Fool, slated for release October, 20 2017.

In addition to the well-known neighborhoods of Irvington, Ladd's Addition, or Laurelhurst, Portland is also home to the lesser known but architecturally rich neighborhoods of Piedmont and Walnut Park. These areas contain many fine examples of familiar styles such as Queen Anne and Arts & Crafts but also the less frequently seen forms of Byzantine, Jacobean and Prairie style. Along the way you’ll see the work of architects like Joseph Jacobberger, whose North Portland Branch Library has stood as a neighborhood landmark for more than a century.

We will meet every Wednesday and Saturday at 9 am in the River 'S' Unit of the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge through the middle of September. Wear long pants, rubber boots if you have them, and bring sunscreen and a refillable water bottle. We provide the tools (and some boots to borrow if necessary), snacks, and water.

Our life’s work is building bridges among cultural differences, softening barriers to living life with cultural others, and probing the mysteries of unknown places and peoples. We do so not only to teach more wisely, train more effectively, and manage more appropriately, but also sometimes for the sheer pleasure of experiencing differences. The Summer Institute for Intercultural Communication (SIIC) has a 41-year history of providing professional development for people who believe that this work matters. During its first ten years at Stanford University, and for the last 31 under the auspices of the Intercultural Communication Institute (ICI) in Portland, Oregon, SIIC has become a creative—and sometimes downright playful—community of intercultural scholars and practitioners from many cultures that meets each year to renew their energies and commitments. The SIIC atmosphere is inclusive—all participants should expect that their cultural differences will be appreciated and that there will be interest in mutual learning about those differences. Whether you are leading a global team, designing a new diversity initiative, preparing a course for fall term, or directing a study abroad program, you can anticipate a lively week or two of intense engagement with intercultural issues and resources—networking, listening, asking, and indulging in the company of diverse and similarly dedicated professionals. Please join us for what again promises to be a unique and significant learning opportunity. Your Friends at ICI
