Music for all ages Friday in the Grove


by: COURTESY PHOTO - Brian McGinty is bringing his warm sound and thoughtful lyrics to McMenamins Grand Lodge this weekend.Weaving together thoughtful lyrics with catchy melodies, Brian McGinty is a musical descendent of classic songwriters like Billy Joel, Don Henley and Peter Gabriel. McGinty brings warmth, humor, and intelligence to a performance that’s a little bit rock, a little bit folk, and a whole lot of fun.

McGinty will be at McMenamins Grand Lodge, 3505 Pacific Ave., Friday, Jan. 3, from 7 to 10 p.m. The show is free and open to all ages.

Growing up near Washington D.C., McGinty was interested in theater and music from a young age. At 18, he headed out to the west coast to study theater at UCLA. 

In 2008, McGinty made his way up to Oregon, where he found the creative community he was looking for.  Re-energized by his new surroundings, McGinty has made a name for himself on Portland’s exciting and emerging music scene.
