The Lincoln Theatre and the Rick Epting Foundation for the Arts present
Saturday, May 28th 7:30pm
Portland, Oregon roots artist Lloyd Jones has recorded six critically acclaimed albums, toured internationally, and racked up dozens of major awards and accolades. He’s a relentless road dog, hitting festival stages, Delbert’s annual Sandy Beaches Cruises (he’s been a regular on six winter cruises), and clubs all across the land to enthusiastic crowds who can’t get enough of his swampy blues, his backporch picking, his serious-as-anthrax funk, soul, roadhouse two-beats, and old-school rhythm and blues.
Jones is a master of the soulful understatement, the raw growl, and the groove. From his roots in muddy Oregon soil, he’s forged a 30-plus-year career as an impassioned singer and fierce guitar slinger, a clever and soulful songwriter, a bandleader, record producer, and an almost strident torchbearer for all that’s true and good about America’s music. Jones is his own true artist who works diligently at pushing American roots music forward.
What he does, he says, is “combine New Orleans rhythms, the simplicity of Memphis music, and the rawness of the blues, all for the 21st century. This music is not about louder and faster. It’s about time, meter, groove. I thought Muddy and Walter and those guys were pushing the envelope in their era. They were using effects, they were inventing their own sound. They were modern. I want to look at it in a contemporary way.” The gist is all the same — Lloyd Jones is the total package.
Consider this: Robert Cray sings his praises the way Sister Rosetta Tharpe sang gospel. Delbert McClinton won’t cruise the high seas without him. Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, Joe Louis Walker and Coco Montoya saw fit to record his songs. He counts McClinton, Charlie Musselwhite, Marcia Ball, Bonnie Raitt, Tommy Castro, Jimmy Hall and other luminaries among his friends and musical cohorts, and can tell you stories that’ll curl your toes about touring with the likes of Earl King, Big Mama Thornton, Otis Clay, Etta James and scores of others.
Jones is a gifted singer, songwriter, American storyteller and energetic showman. He writes timeless music, steeped in a rich musical history that he’s learned, lived and loved over the years. “This is not a work of science,” he says. “It’s about attitude and joy that applies to all age groups. I’m addicted to this music.”
Lloyd Jones and his timeless, swampified American songwriting style is tailor-made for dancing like crazy people on a Saturday night. Jones is no poser, no youngster who copped a couple of quick blues licks and headed for the big time with a cocky swagger and a brand-new Strat. You see it in his face when he plays — the ear-to-ear grin, the soul-gripping grimace when he bites off another stinging note. You hear it in every heart-aching lyric, sung in a voice that genuinely shares with you life’s hard knocks and hard-won secrets. Many roots heavyweights, not to mention legions of CD-buying fans, sing his praises. Give him a listen, and you will too.
Advance festival seating tickets: $25 with $2 off for Lincoln Theatre and REFA members.

Documentary filmmaker Sean Bloomfield (If Only We Had Listened, The Triumph) and the Stella Mar Films crew have wrapped filming and finalized the details on the release of their latest film Apparition Hill.
“We didn’t set out to create a film about life and death,” says Mr. Bloomfield. “But when you draw seven people from different backgrounds together, you can’t help but explore what’s truly on people’s hearts. This project turned into a fascinating experience that shows just how much we all have in common. Despite what seem like major differences, these unlikely pilgrims have a shared story that needs to be told.”
The documentary is the fruit of a groundbreaking concept utilizing a video contest and crowd-funding campaign to send 5 individuals to Medjugorje, a little-known village nestled in between two mountains along the border of Bosnia-Herzegovina and Croatia to film their experiences. The contest and campaign surpassed expectations and the “pilgrimage” added two additional travelers. Medjugorje has been a hotbed of controversy as millions visit the town each year to see for themselves whether the legend is true: that Mary, the Mother of Jesus, has appeared to a select group of natives with regularity for the last 35 years.
The film features Holly Weller of Mount Vernon. Proceeds from the screening of Apparition Hill go to the “Weller Kids Fund”.
Advance Festival Seating Tickets $12 general, $10 Lincoln Theatre members + applicable fees.

The Historic Lincoln Theatre presents
with Special Guest
on Sunday, July 24th at 7:30pm
Albert Lee is “the guitar player’s guitar player,” universally recognized in music circles as one of the world’s finest, as well as one of the top rockabilly guitarists in history. Albert has not only worked with some of the biggest names in music, like Eric Clapton, Emmylou Harris and the Everly Brothers, but has also maintained a solo career of his own.
In his fifth decade as a professional musician, Lee is part of a rarefied fraternity as a virtuoso's virtuoso, respected on three continents and pretty much living out a professional life that most of his colleagues, when he started out, could only dream of.
"One of the finest guitar players who ever walked this earth…” - Vince Gill
Born in New England and raised in North Carolina, Kate Taylor shares her dual musical heritage with brothers James, Livingston, Hugh, and her late brother Alex. Her roots run deep in the soul, gospel and rockabilly sounds of her southern upbringing and in the literate folk, pop and Appalachian stylings that comprise the balance of her family's shared musical legacy.
In a recent show review, The Huffington Post said, "Her heart ignites a sea of beauty expressed in a myriad of harmony, rhythm and passion. Musically, she is seamless. She effortlessly and brilliantly flies through a wide swath of styles, from blues to country to ballad to gospel and beyond."
