The Music Monday series features jazz, blues and roots artists from throughout the region. This time, Lauren Sheehan and Zoe Carpenter, the mother-daughter duo known as Tillamook Burn, will share the stage with Nathan James. Doors open at 6 p.m., and the show begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 and are available at laketheatercafe-com.seatengine.com.

Known as a roots Americana songstress, Sheehan and her mother launched Tillamook Burn in January 2015, with a self-titled EP which features their vocal harmonies backed up on guitar, banjo and mandolin.

Nathan James is known for his homemade instruments and self-taught skills.

James will perform a solo set, with influences from many early roots artists and styles. He has forged his own musical identity — wielding homemade instruments. He is a one-man band, picking and scratching on a washboard guitar he crafted and stomping out time on his custom suitcase drum set. He’ll also be singing and teasing notes from a harmonica or kazoo.

Lake Theater and Cafe is located at 106 N. State St. in downtown Lake Oswego.
