A gorgeous evening at the Edgefield in Troutdale, OR. Perfect for sunsets, locally crafted beer and phenomenal music.
The fine folks at McMenamin’s have got another fabulous summer of concerts on the lawn lined up for you at the Edgefield! Take a gander below at some highlights of what they’ve got going on – and grab your tickets quick for anything that isn’t already sold out!
June 27th – Foster The People with Mayer Hawthorne: Hope you got your tickets for this one because it is sold out! One day before my cursed birthday means I might venture out of the house for this one. Recently formed and straight out of Los Angeles, Foster The People have had wild success seemingly overnight with their dance pop-rock hits. Mayer Hawthorne rounds out the bill with a solid opening set.
July 5th – Ben Harper: With successful albums and performances since the 90′s, Ben Harper is sure to bring an outstanding set this summer! Known for his mix of blues, soul, reggae and rock, Harper has a diverse following around the globe. Grab your tickets for what is sure to be a relaxing night at the Edgefield – tickets on-sale now through Cascade Tickets.
July 26th – Emmylou Harris & Her Red Dirt Boys with Steve Martin & Steep Canyon Strangers: Yes, you read that right! Emmylou and the banjo king himself, Steve Martin! I’m personally stoked on this show – beautiful bluegrass outside on the lawn with what is sure to be an entertaining and hilarious set by Steve Martin. Two classics, one amazing night! Head over to Cascade Tickets to pick up your tickets today!
August 9th – Sigur Rós: This one devastates me a little. Let my tragedy teach us all a dear lesson – get your tickets immediately for these shows! My all-time favorite Icelandic artists are returning to our lovely little city for the first time in a couple years (who else caught Jonsi and his incredible video installation at the Roseland last time?) and will be treating us all to music off their new album. Every time I’ve seen this group perform, it’s been life-changing. Mixing visual and tactile elements along with their cinematic, emotional music, Sigur Rós are artists through and through. This one is sold out, but those of you who got tickets are going to have an amazing time!
August 17th - Norah Jones: Who doesn’t love this little lady? Equally well known for her sultry jazz music and indie film acting, Norah Jones has really branched out in her career to experiment with everything from jazz to folk to rock. Grab a glass of wine and join me on the lawn for this one! I suggest picking up your tickets quick through Cascade Tickets.
August 25th and 26th – The Avett Brothers: Lovely folk-rockers from North Carolina, The Avett Brothers have garnered success quickly over the past couple years through some relentless touring and that epic performance at the Grammy’s alongside Mumford and Sons and Bob Dylan. Another evening of really talented musicians performing at the Edgefield – and you’ve got two nights to choose from! Pick up tickets for you and your friends (count me in, too!) through Cascade Tickets.
