Winterfolk 24: a celebration of music and community. For 24 years, Winterfolk has benefited Sisters Of The Road, a vital Portland organization working to end homelessness.
Nationally-acclaimed folk star Tracy Grammer will headline again this year. Headliner Tracy Grammer is a Winterfolk favorie and will be celebrating the release of a new CD of previously unheard Dave Carter/Tracy Grammer recordings that date back more than 10 years.
A stunning Woodland Pro Folk Sunburst guitar (value $1,000) will be up for grabs in the guitar raffle. This guitar is a visual standout: mahogany back and sides, spruce top, rosewood fingerboard and bridge, vintage style slotted headstock and butter-bean knobs, and a sunburst finish (generously donated by Artichoke Music). The raffle also includes one day (10 hours) of recording time at Billy Oskay’s Big Red Studio (value $750). Pick up your raffle tickets beginning next week at Artichoke Music (3130 SE Hawthorne), Portland Fret Works (3027 NE Alberta) or Sisters’ office. The winner will be chosen at Winterfolk. You need not be present to win, but it’s so much more fun if you are!
