Tunesmith Night, Saturday, April 13 – 7PM
Sugar Time Bakery, 107 North River Street, Ste. A, Enterprise, Oregon
The Wallowa Valley Music Alliance presents another edition of Tunesmith Night, a monthly showcase of original music. The Saturday, April 13 show features songwriters Karin Blaine, Elwood, and Kassi Valazza. Venue is Sugar Time Bakery, located in the Burnaugh Building on North River Street and provides the perfect atmosphere for our listening audience.
With a reputation as a dynamic live performer, Seattle-based singer songwriter, Karin Blaine, serves up original songs full of passion, wit and charm. She loves to connect with her audiences. “I believe that modern day living tends to cut us off from ourselves and each other,” says Blaine about her music. “I crave connection – don’t you? It’s like a ‘jones’ that is jangling us all. With my music, poetry and live performances I want to help hook us up again.” For more about Karin Blaine visit www.karinblaine.com
What is it that moves your soul? For Elwood it has always been the ever awe inspiring serenity and sheer power of Mother Nature and you can feel it in his music. The trickle of a small stream, the roar of a thunder cloud, the pure silence of meadow lit by the coming of the sun….it’s these things that sit at the very core of Elwood’s music. Elwood has had the honor of sharing the stage with bands such as Simon Tucker, Tim Snider, Michael Kirkpatrick, Kory Quinn, Left Coast Country, many more.
Kassi Valazza’s songs are reminiscent of her childhood growing up in the vast open spaces of Arizona. Her lyrics portray dark stories of the West and a yearning for home, while the music rides a thin line of country western and psych.
Tunesmith Night is presented in a round-robin format, with each musician playing a song, then the next taking a turn, creating an interesting and varied performance. Admission is $10 at the door or by season pass. Doors open at 6pm (SEATING IS LIMITED), music at 7pm, all ages welcome. Sugar Time will have the kitchen open for soups and sandwiches, in addition to their usual yummy sweet treats (BYO adult beverages).
