Spring is no stranger to the WVMA’s Tunesmith Night. An award-winning folk and blues songwriter from Bellingham, Washington, she makes the trek to Wallowa County at least once a year.
She’s been busy writing new songs for five album projects and is looking forward to playing some of them, as well as old favorites, according to a press release for the event.
Longmire has built a reputation as one of Portland’s multi-instrumentalist “go to guys.” 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.
Longmire is an anchor member of Portland’s all-star tribute to the Allman Brothers called Brothers and Sister. He’s played with national acts Michael Hurley, Victoria Williams, Dolorean, Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside and Tara Jane O’Neill.
Cadenelli is a longtime Portland musician and member of such bands as The Don of Division Street, Fernando, Brothers and Sister, Dr. Theopolis and Portland Country Underground. Weaving together musical styles from Wilco to Nick Lowe to The Kinks to Neil Young, his sounds feature song-centric, melodious vistas aligned with insightful lyrical musings.
