The November version of Tunesmith Night will feature Wallowa County resident Mike Midlo (aka MidLo) along with two other performers from the Pacifc Northwest.
The concert is 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov 10, at Sugar Time Bakery, 107 North River Street, Enterprise.
The event is sponsored by Wallowa Valley Music Alliance as a showcase of original music.
Although most MidLo concerts take place on front porches, for dogs and around campfires, the songslinger does venture out here and there to sing in front of people.
MidLo’s new record, “Two Steps & Waltzes,” was recorded on the stage of the historic OK Theatre in Enterprise. For Tunesmith Night, MidLo plans to fire up a hand full of those numbers, try out a few new ones and dust off a couple b-sides from the archive of forgotten songs.
Pete Krebs, a member of the Portland musical community since 1988, wil join MidLo. His bands have included Hazel, Golden Delicious, The Stolen Sweets, The Portland Playboys and Thee Catnip Brothers, exploring genres as diverse as punk rock, gypsy jazz and traditional country.
Mike Surber, who grew up in Eastern Oregon and now resides in Eugene, will also perform. He’s best known as a member of the Seattle indie rock band Sons of Guns, where he shares songwriting and singing duties with Gregory Rawlins.
Tunesmith Night is presented in a round-robin format, with each musician playing a song, then the next taking a turn, creating an interesting and varied performance.
Admission is $10 at the door or by season pass. Doors open at 6 p.m., music at 7 p.m. Seating is limited. All ages welcome. Sugar Time will have the kitchen open for soups and sandwiches, in addition to lineup of sweet treats.
