'On Our Own' CD set to be released
Concert a celebration of release of "On Our Own"
Lake Theater & Cafes Music Monday concert Nov. 21 will feature Sherrie Wolf and her daughter, Sarah, with George Thompson and Paul Chasman, for a CD release celebration of On Our Own.
Born and raised in Portland, Wolfs interest in voice, songwriting and guitar led her to performing bold vocal interpretations of folk and popular standards at venues such as: Lake Theater & Cafe, Portland Art Museum, Cannon Beach City Park, Hoffman Art Museum in Manzanita, Portland Folk Society concert series and more. Her passion for singing began as a teen, influenced by Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, Laura Nyro and Bob Dylan. She released Keeper of the Songs earlier this year.
Appearing with Wolf and her daughter will be Dale Jones on bass.
Also performing will be George Thompson and his son Geordie, with Paul Chasman on guitar. Thompson and Chasman are celebrating the release of their CD On Our Own, a tribute to enduring love.
Wolf will open with songs from Keeper of the Songs.
Thompson has collected a diverse and vast repertoire of songs over the past five decades. He has sung in folk groups since the 1960s.
In his 40-year career, Chasman has played with a number of blues and bluegrass bands, including the Heavy Gauge String Band. He began composing music for the guitar, melding jazz, classical and folk idioms into his own unique style. Guitar Player magazine called him one of the most deft harmonics practitioners, and called his harmonics technique simply astounding.
Chasman helped found the Acoustic Guitar Summit featuring himself, Terry Robb, Mark Hanson and Doug Smith. He celebrated 50 years of guitar playing with the release of his CD One Man Guitar Festival in 2010.
Tickets to the concert are $10 and includes a copy of On Our Own.
Lake Theater & Cafe is located at 106 N. State St. in Lake Oswego.
