The format alternates weekly between showcases of typically 4 to 6 performers, and "Songwriters in the Round" which features 4 players trading licks. Magic always happens on Friday nights at Cafe Artichoke!

River City Folk
with Tom May

Come be part of a nationally broadcast radio program taped LIVE from Artichoke Music once a month! Each taping is followed by a song circle. Come early, because space is limited!

2014 River City Folk Taping Schedule:

September 26 - Jim Page

Incisive commentary and a lifetime of "living the music", by this legendary Northwest folksinger.  Jim's songs make you think, laugh, cry;  and make me proud to be a folk musician.

October 24 - Hanz Araki with Colleen Raney & Cary Novotny

Hanz Araki has quietly been establishing himself as a international force in celtic music, performing all over the world from his Portland, Oregon home. He has a brand new CD due out, "Foreign Shore",  and he loves cats and seahawks.  He is joined tonight by his two gifted compatriots on guitar and vocals.

November 14 - Paul Sanchez

Artichoke music's own Paul Sanchez deftly creates beautiful vignettes of lives well lived, with empathy and  memorable melodies.  Paul is also celebrating the release of a new CD, recorded at Medicine Whistle Studios.

December 12 - A Fine Mess featuring Peter Yeates, Rich Gillette, & Mike West

Peter Yeates is one of the essential acoustic performers in our area;  songwriter, club owner, touring artist, and lynchpin of the Portland celtic music scene for more than 40 years. In this ensemble, he is joined by the lyrical voice and instruments of Rich Gillette, and Mike West on bass.  Great songs and harmonies, and lots of fun!
