The Oregon Bluegrass Association presents the Bluegrass Special: The Robert Mabe Band Robert Mabe is a stellar banjo player, singer/songwriter, from the hills of North Carolina. As a young banjo player in North Carolina, Robert had the opportunity to learn from and perform with many great bluegrass and old time banjo players as the area was and still is a hot-bed of musicians. His unique style covers a wide range of music from straight ahead bluegrass to jazz, Irish, and roots music. In 2016 Robert released his latest album, "Somewhere in the Middle". The album, written and produced by Robert, showcases Roberts versitile songwriting skills and includes an all star cast of musicians. "Somewhere in the Middle" also caught the attention of Bluegrass Today and Bluegrass Unlimited who both published rave reviews and high praise of the project. At the Fremont Theater, 2393 NE Fremont. $15 OBA members / $19 general / All ages.

Bigfoot Mojo Sunday afternoon Bluegrass & Americana shows at Fremont Theater! Join us every Sunday for music, food and drink. Upright bassist Belinda Underwood and national mandolin champion Josiah Payne met on the bluegrass scene in Portland, Oregon, as hired hands in other award-winning bands. Musicians in multiple genres since childhood, they both grew up in family bands before moving to Oregon, and were feeling orphaned without their families until they found each other in 2012. After playing together for 3 years as "Josiah and Belinda", they adoped the mascot of the Northwest when they became Bigfoot Mojo. Songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, they have many creative offerings, including this new incarnation. Josiah and Belinda continue to mesmerize audiences with groove-based melodies and impeccable vocal harmonies (the kind that sound genetically-blended), setting a new standard for original music which defies genre boundaries. At the Fremont Theater, 2393 NE Fremont. $5 suggested / All ages.
