In honor of the 175th Oregon Trail Anniversary we are celebrating with a spring feast and music: An Oregon Stories Concert!
Don’t miss this one-time-only rare acoustic concert show at the M.J. Murdock Theater. This trio of Trail Band veterans creates a rich instrumental blending of guitar, violin, and soprano sax underpinning Rindy’s vocals and Marv’s original songs about North West history and culture.
Dinner is at 6 and the concert starts at 7
$30 for both the dinner and the concert,
Concert only is $15
** Reservations are required by May 16th as seating is very limited for both. Call 541.296.8600 ext. 215 to purchase tickets or buy them online at https://www.gorgediscovery.org.
The Rosses were commissioned by the state in 1991 to create a musical based upon diaries of the Oregon Trail. That show led to the formation of The Trail Band and 13 CDs recorded over 25 years featuring songs about timber towns, Celilo Falls, the Oregon Trail, ranching, Tonya Harding, and life on the high desert.
The Rosses will play the Oregon Stories tunes in the first hour, take an intermission, and play a second set with tunes from Seafood Mama and Quarterflash inspired by bluegrass, swing, jazz, pop, and folk genres. Eddie Parente’s wide-ranging virtuosity on the violin fills in perfectly between Rindy Ross’s airy vocals and Marv’s unique guitar voicings.
Please join us for this special evening.
