Artichoke Cafe presents an evening with award-winning cowboy poet Tom Swearingen and Western Music Association Harmony Group of the Year winners Notable Exceptions. Tom Swearingen is an Oregon horseman who tells stories of the people and land of the American West through original cowboy poetry that is often inspired by his own experiences and observations from the saddle. Tom brings his stories to life with rhythm and rhyme and a style that makes him a popular performer not only at cowboy gatherings and horse camps, but also in singer-songwriter circles and wherever else you find folks who appreciate well-crafted verse. Notable Exceptions, the duo Judy Coder and Jennifer Epps, are known in the world of western music for their finely crafted vocal harmony. Their original tunes are lighthearted and conversational. For accompaniment, Judy's tasteful rhythm guitar is right on the button; Jennifer sweetens the sound with tidbits of harmonica, rhythm instruments, flutes and whistles. The result is fun, fresh, bold Americana. All ages general admission $15 at Artichoke Music in advance or at the door (doors at 6:30).

Portland's 10th Annual Dia do Choro Concert Celebrating Brazilian Composers Choro music is roots jazz from Brazil, and considered Brazil's first "urban pop" music. In this unique show you will experience a wide range of pieces of Choro and other genres by many of Brazil's important 20th century composers, such as Pixinguinha, Jacob do Bandolim, Tom Jobim, Baden Powell, and many more. 4 acts in one show! Come hear the intricate and sultry instrumental melodies of classic choro, the edgy syncopation of modern choro, emotive samba and bossa nova, and other genres. This is a rare opportunity to hear a wide range of composers, performed by four diverse acts: Solo Guitar, Mandolin/Guitar Duo, Piano/Guitar Duo, and Ensemble. Special guests include Alexandra Santos (Vocals) and Lisa Seifert (wind instruments). More about CHORO DA ALEGRIA Portlands ensemble dedicated to playing wonderful melodies of various Brazilian composers. Our group draws much inspiration from the genre Choro, which is vintage jazz from Brazil. Beyond the Choro genre the groups repertoire includes classic tunes of Bossa Nova and Musica Popular Brasileira (MPB). Choro da Alegria is a play on words: it can mean Cry of happiness or Choro music gives happiness. Tom Pinit - bandolim/Brazilian mandolin, vocals Pam Beaty - 7-string guitar, cavaquinho, vocals Esteban Diaz - percussion Peter Fung - cavaquinho, percussion More about DUO BECAR: Florence Deutsch started playing the piano at age 6 in her native Sibiu, Romania. She studied at the Scoala Generala de Arte (Classical Piano) and was among finalists in citywide, and regional piano competitions. Even as the Iron Curtain prevented many from traveling outside of Eastern Europe, her skills earned her travel to performances in Vienna and Linz, Austria. She later developed a passion for Brazilian music. Sergio Botelho was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and started playing the guitar at age 10, soon becoming fascinated by the sultry rhythms and lush harmonies in the music of his homeland. He later fell in love with classical guitar, and today can feel at home playing both popular and erudite music. More about Allen Mathews (solo guitar) Allen has been performing Brazilian music for over a decade, and is one of the original artists who helped form Portlands Dia do Choro. His solo guitar interpretations of Brazilian composers is not to be missed. More about Olivia and Rene (Mandolin/Guitar) Olivia Duffy and Rene Berblinger form a classic choro duo, and have been parts of the Portlands choro scene for several years. Olivia and Rene have been pleasing audiences with their exceptional musicianship and thoughtful arrangements of Choro music.
