For the 28th anniversary of Winterfolk, Portland's largest annual folk music event and a benefit for Sisters of the Road, we are privileged to welcome headliner singer-songwriter, author, and social activist David Roth. Hailing from Cape Cod, Massachusetts, David has touched folks from all over the world with his evocative songs and stories over the last 30 years. From performing his song "Earth" for the fortieth anniversary of the United Nations, to singing his "Rising in Love" at Carnegie Hall for its centennial celebration, he has made a profound impact on the musical conscience of this nation. Also on the playbill is local luminary Casey Neill, who has taken his blend of celtic, folk and contemporary sounds and hard hitting lyrics to audiences from New York City to his Pacific Northwest base. Dan Rhiger and Rahmana Weist, better known as Sky in the Road, will lend their melodious, world music influenced songs and voices to the Winterfolkstage. Also featured at the 28th edition of this Portland tradition will be Dan Weber, a singer/storyteller who has been a Kerrville, Texas festival favorite and has been touring the U.S. extensively with his spirited ballads. Rounding out this year’s sterling Winterfolk lineup will be Kelly Bosworth, a young woman who positively shines on stage as she sings, along with some eloquent offerings from master songsmith Paul Sanchez. Richard Colombo will emcee Winterfolk this year, and also contribute a song or two from his lifetime of commitment to this "music that matters". A favorite part of the annual tradition, Portland's Artichoke Music is once again donating a guitar for the Winterfolk raffle, which will join a day of recording at Billy Oskay's Big Red Studio as the prize for some lucky winner. Raffle tickets will be available at Artichoke Music and at the Aladdin Theater the night of the concert. Winterfolk is one of those rare expressions of giving which brings disparate parts of our area together, in the common cause of music and a sure knowledge that every dollar raised at the door goes to the people it is intended to help. Sisters of the Road Cafe quietly continues to do its work of providing low cost and no cost meals in Portland’s Old Town neighborhood. Founded in 1979, Sisters Of The Road uses nonviolence to support community driven solutions to the calamities of homelessness and poverty. Sisters' cafe is open to everyone, serving low cost, hot, nutritious meals. It remains a shining example of reaching out and helping to change people's lives through food and friendship.

“WHERE WORDS FAIL… MUSIC SPEAKS.” That simple line atop Elephant Revival’s Facebook page contains only five words, but reveals volumes about the band’s reason for being. Music unites us in ways that no other medium can. Even when we don’t understand one another’s languages – we can be moved by a rhythm, soothed by a song. Brought together by a unified sense of purpose – the spirit of five souls working as one, in harmony, creating sounds they could never produce alone. The five souls in Elephant Revival are Bonnie Paine (washboard, djembe, musical saw, stompbox); Bridget Law (fiddle, octave fiddle); Charlie Rose (banjo, pedal steel, guitar, horns, cello, double bass); Dango Rose (double bass, mandolin, banjo); and Daniel Rodriguez (guitar, banjo, double bass). This Nederland, Colo., quintet are, needless to say, quite a sound to be experienced – especially when they fall into the pocket of a groove containing elements of gypsy, Celtic, Americana, and folk. The Indie Acoustic Music Project simply labeled their sound “progressive edge.” At least, that’s the category in which it placed the band when it gave their Ruff Shod/Nettwerk Records release, BREAK IN THE CLOUDS, a best CD of 2011 award. Elephant Revival’s later THESE CHANGING SKIES (Thirty Tigers) release went on to win best CD of 2013 in the same category. It’s as good a label as any to convey what Dango Rose has described as their mission: “to close the gap of separation between us through the eternal revelry of song and dance.” Elephant Revival also shares a commitment to responsible stewardship of the planet and its inhabitants, working with organizations such as the Conscious Alliance, Calling All Crows, Trees Water & People, and other nonprofits supporting humanitarian causes. Their very name was chosen out of empathy for a pair of zoo pachyderms who, upon being separated after 16 years, died on the same day. The band related that heart-rending story during their April 2012 debut on fellow Coloradans Nick & Helen Forster’s internationally syndicated “eTown” radio show – like Elephant Revival, a blend of music and social consciousness. Sitting in the audience during their performance, one music blogger was moved to write, “Elephant Revival serenaded the crowd with arabesque melodies, harmonies and rhythms that braided and coiled into a sublime aural tapestry. Their instrumental dynamics, verse, and even the harrowing story that inspired their appellation, invoked the majesty, mystery and sorrow of Mother Earth.” Campout for the Cause festival organizers put it this way in an affectionate shoutout on their Facebook page. “We love Elephant Revival so much,” they wrote, “not just for their incredible music and conscious lyrics, but for their commitment to living up to the standards they set forth and setting positive examples.” It’s a paradigm worth spreading, and that’s what Elephant Revival members intend to continue doing as they carry their music around the world, speaking one song at a time. Due to a scheduling conflict, the Elephant Revival show scheduled for Sept 10th at Revolution Hall has been moved to the Aladdin Theater. All Revolution Hall tickets will be honored at this show. elephantrevival.com

Join us for the premiere screening of the new documentary, The Raising of America, hosted by the Health Equity Circle @ OHSU The Raising of America will reframe the way we look at early childhood health and development. This documentary series and multimedia initiative by the producers of UNNATURAL CAUSES: Is Inequality Making Us Sick? explores how a strong start for all children leads not only to better individual life course outcomes (learning, earning and physical and mental health), but also, to a healthier, safer, better educated, more prosperous, and more equitable America. This premiere screening is part of a nationwide launch event and public education campaign. Following the documentary will be a discussion of local issues and what we can do to make Portland and Oregon the best place for kids and young families to grow and to prosper. Health Equity Circle @ OHSU is an interdisciplinary group of students, healthcare providers, and community partners, who have come together to learn about and take action on health equity issues. We believe that community health requires more than healthcare—it means taking action to build a healthy society. Sponsored by: OHSU Family Medicine, United Way of the Columbia-Willamette, Multnomah County Health Department, Oregon Food Bank, Partnership for a Hunger Free Oregon, PSU Institute for Sustainable Solutions, OHSU Center for Diversity and Inclusion, PSU Social Determinants of Health Initiative, Reach Out and Read, Morrison Center, Metropolitan Alliance for Common Good.
