Marisa Anderson
w/ Serious River Song Catalogue

A curious and gifted player, Portland-based guitarist Marisa Anderson has spent over 35 years of playing forging her singular, instantly recognizable voice. She filters musical history through her own personal experiences, as a traveler in life and in music.

Anderson’s experience in a myriad playing styles and keen abilities as an improviser combine to forge a distinct approach to composing. The backbone for her music is her undeniable mastery of North American traditions of country, folk, and blues.

Her recent album Cloud Corner sees Anderson using those skills in new forms from the Classical canon such as the fugue and ostinato. Anderson was influenced by artists she played or recorded with such as Mdou Moctar, Kildjate Moussa Albadé, and Ahmoudou Madassane. Inspiration was also drawn from unique stringed instruments Anderson utilized such as the requinto jarocho and charango.

Astoria’s Will Elias balances the evening with his own uniquely composed and compelling guitar based songs, under the name Serious River Song Catalogue. Intricate loops and notes, magnetic melancholy, and a touch of dark humor.

If you need another reason to come, the evening is an unofficial celebration of Cancer birthdays. There will be cake!
