Acoustic, electric, bass guitar and harmonica
Just another white blues musician trying to find the groove.
A first-timer, I was impressed with the good vibes and the well managed process. It speaks to the depth of music talent and friendliness in Portland that this sort of thing happens here. Back in the 80&amp;#039;s I noticed the kernel of the same feeling about homebrewing, that flowered into the micro-brew industry. To me, the blues jam is emblematic that the Portland music scene verging on a breakout of some kind - becoming a music destination for baby-boomers perhaps?
