About the artist

The Boston Globe calls Jake Armerding "the most gifted and promising songwriter to emerge from the Boston folk scene in years."

“Armerding grew up playing classical violin and listening to 80's pop radio. He is the author of five albums of original music, along with a short-form recording as a member of his alter-ego instrumental ensemble, The Fretful Porcupine.

After joining a farm CSA in 2009, he adopted the idea for his own projects, and launched Community Supported Art in late 2011.

Over the course of 1500 performances since turning professional at age 12, he has shared the stage with Bela Fleck, Nickel Creek, Josh Ritter, David Wilcox and Toad the Wet Sprocket.

Armerding lives in Boston.

and CD's will be for sale but there is no charge otherwise. You may have seen a few posters around town but it would be much appreciated if this information could be included in the weekly column that lists local live music performances. Jake has given a couple of House Concerts at Paul Blackburn/Kristin Dillon's home in years past, sponsored by the Mid-Columbia Folk Music Association. He has at least 5 CD's recorded. I am including a link that you may have a moment or two to look at. It does include 4 photos that could perhaps be used if you wanted to put a little picture in the paper also. I realize that this is somewhat last minute for Saturday's paper, so it is understood if it doesn't make it into print.

Take care,

"The tangled skirt" opens run at unique venue

Director Judie Hanel presents the Steve Braunstein play “The Tangled Skirt” in an unusual theatrical setting, River Daze Café. Here, Bailey Brice (Bruce Howard) arrives at a small town bus station and has a fateful encounter with Rhonda Claire (Desiree Amyx Mackintosh). Small talk turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse and both seek advantage. The actors present the story as a staged reading in the café, where large windows and street lights lend themselves to the bus station setting, according to Hanel. Performances are 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28, Saturday, Sept. 30 and Sunday, Oct. 1. (There is no Friday performance.) Tickets available at the door or Waucoma Bookstore: $15 adults, $12 seniors and children under 15. No children under 9. Enlarge
