Fidd's Fundraiser Night With Castletown and Far From Home!
Robert Richter and his band, Castletown, will be sharing their music tonight to help us raise some funds to support Fiddler's Dream! Also helping the fundraising tonight is the delightfully sassy musical magic of Far From Home!
We will open the night at 7:30pm with Far From Home, the husband and wife duo of Tim (Papa Dill) and Amy(Pepper) Shafer, bringing years and histories of musical talent together, from voice to strings, influenced by Renaissance, Celtic and geek culture. And, with both being huge fans of history and mythology it's also pretty much guaranteed that you will learn at least one fun thing while at their show! Tim and Amy often invite their amazing and talented friends to come join them in playing glorious music! Clove (Stacia), a dear loved one, has a beautiful Soprano voice and a snarky wit; she is a great complement to the family and is eagerly learning a few other instruments. Sister Uni (Stephanie) with her singing, quick wit and Fiddling to rival her sisters (Pepper) is fun to have visit.
Far From Home will play till about 8:30pm. We will take a short break, and then -
8:40pm: Every show with Castletown is a party! With the fiery hot AmeriCeltic fiddle tunes mixed with engaging original songs, its impossible not to dance to their music. Castletown is comprised of a unique collection of talented musicians whose varying musical backgrounds blend together to create a sound unlike any other Celtic band around. With flavors of blues, jazz, rock n roll, and even classical, Castletowns style of AmeriCeltic music has something to offer every listener. With over 120 performances per year all over the west coast, Castletown has quickly become the most requested AmeriCeltic band in the Northwest! Castletown regularly performs at a variety of concert venues and at many festivals, including Folklife Music Festival, Bite of Seattle, Astoria Wine and Seafood Festival, Summerfest, Umpqua Valley Arts Festival, Recycled Arts Festival, The City of Portland Summer Concert Series, and countless others. Castletown has shared the stage with acclaimed Irish fiddler Kevin Burke, classic rocker Al Stuart and talented singer Keith Greeninger just to name a few. Castletown is honored to be the most requested band on KGW channel 8 Portland Today show, and will be headlining the Mcmenamin's Saint Patrick's Day festival 2018. In 2016 Castletown debuted their first album, In Reel Time, featuring fiddler Katie Jane. In 2017 Katie Jane & Castletown released the popular Fired Up Folklore album which was comprised of unique arrangements of hard-to-find Irish fiddle tunes. In 2018 Castletown plans to release their newest album comprised entirely of original songs interspersed with PNW inspired fiddle tunes. This album will also debut the talented Drew Anymouse on drums / percussion, and Katie Jane's vocals. Although Castletown travels all over for concerts throughout the west coast, they always return to their home in Portland, OR. Castletown can be seen performing monthly shows in their hometown Portland, OR, every third Thursday at Mockcrest Tavern!
