Beloved string bender Scott Law returns with an all electric project that includes bassist Damien Erskine and drummer Russ Kleiner (that’s a terrific rhythm section, by the way!). Scott’s impressive career includes collaborations with The String Cheese Incident, being chosen by Phil Lesh to play Jerry Garcia’s guitar at Red Rocks, founding Honkeytonk Homeslice (w/SCI’s Billy Nershi), numerous collaborations with Melvin Seals, and his current band Brokedown in Bakersfield. In summary, Scott is a musical treasure and one whose Portland appearances should not be taken for granted. From soul/jazz to folk, bluegrass to rock and psychedelia, his joy and skill shine brightly!

Opening the evening is the fantastic Lewi Longmire & The Left Coast Roasters…

Lewi Longmire has built a reputation as Portland’s multi-instrumentalist “go to guy.” In the years since relocating to Portland from Albuquerque, New Mexico, he’s been included on shows and recordings by many of the Northwest’s finest bands and songwriters. He’s worked with national acts Michael Hurley, Victoria Williams, Blue Giant/Viva Voce/The Robinsons, Dolorean, the Minus 5 and Tara Jane O’Neill as well as local luminaries Fernando, James Low, Denver, Pancake Breakfast, Quiet Life, Little Sue, Casey Neill, The Portland Country Underground, Michael Jodell and the Freak Mountain Ramblers. More recently, though, Lewi has taken all the things he learned from working with these fine performers and has been spending his time leading a roots rock/americana band of his own, singing the songs he has written himself. The group owes much to the American tradition of good songs played with high energy, deep roots, and an unpretentious sense of fun. Their sound finds the connection between the basement feel of The Band, the raspy blue-eyed soul of Joe Cocker, the desert space of Giant Sand, the “without a net” deep space improvisations of the San Francisco ballrooms, the punk abandon of The Stooges and the quiet contemplation of Neil Young playing solo.

As the LEWI LONGMIRE BAND, helping achieve this sound is a band of stalwart Portland musicians. Bill Rudolph (bass and vocals) played with the Crackpots and Little Sue for years, driving their home crowd into an energetic frenzy with his low tones. Ned Folkerth (drums) has toured the world over with many groups, including the midwest’s Pinetop Seven, always laying down the perfect groove to cure whatever ails ya.

If the band is listed as LEWI & THE LEFT COAST ROASTERS, it usually means that the core trio is augmented by some of the other fine players in Portland’s rich musical family: Bingo a.k.a. Kevin Richey (guitar), Edward Connell (keyboards), Dan Eccles (guitar), David Lipkind (harmonica), Jenny Conlee (keyboards), Paul Brainard (steel guitar, trumpet), and Eddie Lakaden (percussion).

Often Lewi can be found playing in an acoustic duo with Annalisa Tornfelt. A talented violinist blessed with a beautiful voice and an arresting presence, she and Lewi trade off songs, harmonize together and generally amuse each other on stage. Not your average singer-songwriter act.

Aside from that, Mr. Longmire can be found playing music out and about as a support player for quite a few local and national artists. Check out the Side Man page for more info on those projects.
