Best Acoustic Music in Town: The Clinton Street Stomp!
Newport Nightingales -- a three part harmony jazz band playing popular standards of the 20s-40s including many Andrews and Boswell favorites.
Terry Robb -- Terry Robb is one of the top acoustic blues guitarists of our time. His signature fingerpicking style has earned him international acclaim from worldwide audiences, music critics and his distinguished peers. Incorporating elements from the Mississippi Delta music tradition, ragtime, country, swing and free jazz, Robb has built a unique blues sound that has made him a legend in his prolific music career spanning more than four decades.
The Dekum Duet -- The Dekum Duet is Hanna Traynham and Marian Macrae Herrmann who have been playing and singing together for the past couple of years around the Portland area. Hanna grew up in rural Southwestern Virginia in a family steeped in Old Time music. She learned to play banjo from her father on a banjo he made when she was born. Hanna loves to sing unrefined duets of old gospel music and lonesome traditional ballads. She is a member of The Barn Owls which plays a collection of vintage country, old time tunes, and songs with multi-part harmonies. Marian, a Portland native from a musical family, is a music educator and rockin old time fiddler who has been involved in music from a very early age.
