The Pistol River Concert Association presents Kate Power and Steve Einhorn at 8 p.m. March 2 at the Pistol River Friendship Hall, at 24194 Carpenterville Road in Pistol River.
Power and Einhorn have been a part of the folk music scene for decades, sharing the stage along the way with some of the genre’s legends, including Pete Seeger and Tom Paxton. They regularly perform at folk festivals across the country, and also have been guests on A Prairie Home Companion.
Born in Boston, Power caught the folk bug early in life. At 15, she was the opening act in coffee houses and festivals for the likes of Loudon Wainwright III and Townes Van Zant. In addition to her multi-instrumental talents and singing voice, she has become a prolific and noted songwriter. Her song “Travis John” won the Music2Life grand prize at the 2006 Kerrville Folk Festival, and has been used in soundtracks and ballets, and is commonly sung at vigils and singalongs.
Einhorn was also a young East-Coaster when he jumped into the folk scene. He was active in bluegrass and jug bands from New York to Boston before moving to Portland in the late ‘70s. An accomplished guitarist, Einhorn also has a smooth as silk, versatile voice that carries tunes on its own, but can also wield wonderful harmonies for which other artists regularly seek him out. As a songwriter and performer, he has a knack for meshing the music with the narrative, making the songs come alive.
Tickets for the show are $20 and are available at Wright’s Custom Framing in Brookings and at Gold Beach Books in Gold Beach. Tickets may also be reserved by calling 541-247-2848, or on line at www.pistolriver.com.
