Tonight! OBA Presents Nu-Blu at Reedwood Friends Church


The Oregon Bluegrass Association
proudly presents 
Nu-Blu
Friday, September 13, 2019

Reedwood Friends Church
2901 SE Steele St., Portland

Nu-Blu's heart and soul is husband-and-wife duo Daniel and Carolyn Routh. Carolyn's caramel-coated soprano is one of the bands defining traits--at times a tender lullaby, at times a freight train headed straight for you, but always unwinding a surprising tale. Daniel is the group's backbone, a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist. Zach McCracken (banjo) and Justin Harrison (fiddle/mandolin) round out the quartet's warm, layered, American roots sound that builds to a full country sound. Together they deliver upbeat, blazing-fingers pick work just as well as gentle, heartwarming ballads, and they do it all with a natural togetherness that cant be faked, forged over hundreds of shows on the road.


GA $21 + OBA Members $18 + Kids 12-18 $10.50 (under 12 free)

Tickets available at the door for an additional $4

Doors open at 7   Concert at 7:30

Mount St. Helens Bluegrass Festival: Toledo, WA. August 9th to 11th.

I gotta say this is one of my favorite festivals. It’s located on the High School grounds, there is wide open lawn and beautiful oak groves to camp under. You have to get there early to find a spot under the oaks. There are band scrambles, a gospel show on Sunday, workshops and a snack shop.Showers too. You will probably get a friendly visit from the General, the man in charge, driving his golf cart through the festival grounds each day.

Friday, July 26, 2019

Winlock Picker’s Festival: Winlock, WA. August 2nd to 4th.

This small and very friendly festival is located in beautiful Winolequa Park. This is one of the best jamming festivals especially if you are new to the scene. The snack bar serves a basic breakfast and sells hot dogs and hamburgers. The train tracks just on the other side of the trees are long and straight and the trains are fast. The jingle, rumble and the roar provide a nice back up rhythm if you are singing or snoring in A flat.

Thursday, July 18, 2019

Columbia Gorge Bluegrass Festival: Stevenson WA. July 25th to July 28th.

This is the largest festival of the year in this area. Lots of national acts on the big stage, a beer garden, a dance hall, workshops, food and instrument vendors. The view of the gorge from this location in the fairgrounds is spectacular. Plus there is a sizable pond for canoeing or kayaking. Reservations for big RVs and camping need to be made well in advance. It’s windy folks. Stake all your stuff down, including the kids and dogs. My 10x10 canopy was half way to Idaho before I caught up to it a few years back.

There is a parade on Friday, a car rally all weekend with an Elvis impersonator. The main stage is at the Courthouse lawn which is nicely shaded.
