When it comes to influential musicians of the past fifty years who have crossed genres between blues and rock, Bonnie Raitt is one who definitely stands out. It seems almost impossible to believe that she has been around the scene for so many years as she comes across as eternally youthful, but since the early 1970s she has been a major force as a more than exceptional guitarist, songwriter, vocalist, and performer. Her fan base is world wide, and Portland is no exception.
An amazing group of artists will be gathering once again to pay tribute to Bonnie Raitt at The Alberta Rose Theatre on Saturday, January 28. Like Raitt herself, they easily cross genres. Many of Portland’s finest musicians will be performing the music of Bonnie Raitt: Anne Weiss, Lisa Mann, Bre Gregg, Ara Lee, David Jacobs-Strain, Jean-Pierre Garau, Dan Stueber, and Mark Bowden.
The Alberta Rose Theatre is located at 3000 NE Alberta Street. Show time is 8:00 pm and it is open to all ages with minors permitted when accompanied by a parent or guardian. Tickets may be purchased in advance through albertarosetheatre.com for $15.00 or at the door day of show for $18.00.
Don’t miss out on this night celebrating the Queen of the Bottleneck Guitar. All Bonnie Raitt songs, all night long!
