Curtis & Loretta's music comes straight from the heart. The husband and wife duo's extraordinary harmonies and proficiency on a parade of stringed instruments create an alluring frame for their poignant original songs, and carefully chosen traditional pieces. James Faretheewell is originally from the North Texas plains. As soon as he could sling a guitar over his shoulder and thumb down a semi, he was on his way to Big D (Dallas, Texas) where he cut his musical teeth on Texas road house rock, hard rock, punk rock and folk rock. Curtis & James are old friends from their days in Texas, and haven't seen each other since. This will be a great, musical reunion!

Reynolds, age 61, was recently diagnosed with cerebellar ataxia, a condition that in less than five months has confined him to a wheelchair, wracked with uncontrollable spasms and unable to attend to the basic necessities of life. It has also racked up considerable medical bills - $15,000 to date – with more to come because ataxia is typically the symptom of an underlying disease, which Reynolds’ doctors are working to determine but with no results so far. Like so many who work in the creative field, Reynolds does not have health insurance. With the assistance of the Jeremy Wilson Foundation (thejwf.org) a benefit show has been set for September 7 at Artichoke Music (3130 SE Hawthorne Blvd) / 8pm / All Ages / suggested donation. A great range of items have been donated for a silent auction, including a full-sized totem pole, tattoo services and a personal house concert by cellist Skip VonKuske (Portland Cello Project, Groovy Wallpaper, Vagabond Opera). Online donations may be made at http://thejwf.org/john-reynolds. At the event, you can make a tax-deductible donation to The Jeremy Wilson Foundation, of which proceeds will go towards the John Reynolds Relief Fund.

ABOUT THE JEREMY WILSON FOUNDATION (http://thejwf.org) The Jeremy Wilson Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit musicians’ health and service organization dedicated to providing emergency healthcare assistance and improving the overall well-being of individual musicians and their families. The JWF’s namesake, musician Jeremy Wilson (Dharma Bums, Pilot, Oregon Music Hall of Fame 2011 inductee) formed the JWF in June of 2010 as a result of his personal experiences after being diagnosed with a serious congenital heart condition called Wolf-Parkinson-White. Jeremy has learned “his education by fire,” about this need for adequate healthcare for our community of musicians. Due to the great outpouring of goodwill he experienced from those that have helped him through his own trial, Jeremy formed the JWF so that fellow musicians, and the members of the communities they serve, could have a way to work together to assist individual musicians and their families during medical crisis. http://www.facebook.com/events/515773345176070/
