I can’t quite wrap my head around the fact that it’s Monday again.

Tons of tunes to see including Blue Steel Express at Portland Lobster Company, Songwriters Night featuring Lisa Redfern, Ted DeMille & Chris Moore at Slates, Mothership Mondays with Andrew Bailie & Friends at Portland House of Music and Events, Easy River at Andy’s, and more!

HALLOWELL

Lisa Redfern known as a singer-songwriter who blends her roots in folk, bluegrass, country, gospel, blues, and swing to create something unmistakably her own.

Drawing from time tested folk themes and melodies, the ancient tones and tales of bluegrass, and the contemporary narrative of Americana, Chris Moore has composed, performed, and recorded music for dance, film, television, spoken word, theater, and visual art projects. This evening’s performance will begin at 8pm.
