Artis the Spoonman: The spoonman is a living myth. From the bars and streets of Seattle, San Francisco, Manhattan, Sydney, London, Dublin, Munich and Singapore, to the theatres of Broadway, the stages of international and national television and the recording studios of Frank Zappa and Soundgarden his spell bounding, faster than the eye can track spoon playing will change your life or at least your ideas on cutlery. Referring to Artis the Spoonman Frank Zappa said, "You haven't got a commercial bone in your body."

Jim Page: Jim is one of the most talented, and respected songwriters to ever come from the Pacific Northwest. Jim has been on the scene for more than twenty years and his reputation continues to grow. He has shared the stage with the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Michelle Shocked, Leftover Salmon, and Mickey Hart. Robert Hunter says, "If Jim Page aint the bastard son of Woody Guthrie I'm T-Bone Walker"

We want to give a special thanks to The Portland Mercury for sponsoring the event!
