New! Teem Jam! Calling all advanced young players of traditional music! You are invited to a monthly advanced level traditional music jam for young musicians ages 12-19. The jam will meet every third Sunday of the month (except in April, when we will meet on the 4th Sunday to avoid conflicting with Easter) at Pacific Crest Community School, 116 NE 29th Ave., from 3:30-5:00pm. There is an intermediate jam that meets at the same time and location, hosted by local fiddle teachers. The advanced jam will take place in a different part of the building and will be more self-directed, but with adults available to help out as needed. The goal of this jam is to create a fun way for more advanced musicians to connect and explore making music together. All are welcome, provided you bring an instrument (or your voice) and some tunes to share. Thanks to the generous support of Bubbaville we are able to offer this jam free of charge, though donations and potluck snacks are gladly accepted. For more information or to join our mailing list, please email Sophie Enloe at sophiefiddles@gmail.com.

The Onlies in concert with Pacific Trio opening at Rose City Book Club. 1329 NE Fremont. The Onlies began as a trio of lifelong friends and musical collaborators who realized early on that they shared a fascination with traditional fiddle music. Leo Shannon, Samantha Braman, and Riley Calcagno started making music together at age seven (2005), and quickly became immersed in fiddle music and tradition in their home of Seattle, down the West Coast, and across the world. In recent years, they have developed their sound with the addition of Vivian Leva, an acclaimed talent of old-time, country, and Americana. In recent years, the Onlies have found a musical center in Old Time Appalachian stringband music, and their fiddle, banjo, and guitar playing have become a fixture in a wave of young people who are studying and engaging with the old time tradition with a deep respect for the history of the music and people who make it, as well as a curiosity about how old time music fits into contemporary sounds and culture.

The 2019 Great Big Fais Do Do. This year's Great Big Fais Do Do is set for June 20, 21, 22 and 23. Guest artists this year are T'Monde, Joel Savoy and Jesse Lége, Caleb Klauder, Reeb Willms, Pete Krebs and his Portland Playboys and The Horsenecks. Venues will be The Spare Room Lounge and the Moon and Sixpence Pub in NE Portland Or. More information as it becomes available. The Great Big Fais Do Do (pronounced Fay-Doe-Doe) is the Northwests premier roots country music festival. It is a welcome all dance and music festival in Northeast Portland, Oregon bringing together honky tonk, cajun, western swing, bluegrass, and string band music. At the Great Big Fais Do Do we can forget, for a joyful moment, about life's hardships through music, dance, and social communion, a tradition that is as old as humanity. Fais Do Do is a Cajun french phrase that means go night night, meaning, put the kids to bed and let's have a party! Traditionally this would have been a house party with live unamplified dance music and partner dancing. It grew into a wider used phrase for the Louisiana country dancehalls, and there is even a Fais Do Do stage at Jazz Fest in New Orleans. Now we use it again as an attitude we wish to promote here in Portland. Jimmy C Newman said it perfectly in his famous song, Great Big Fais Do Do: at the great big fais do do, where you glide across the floor, then you eat some hot gumbo, then go back and dance some more!
