Jazz in January with John Stowell

He is an internationally renowned performer who has been welcomed to Australia and all over Europe. He was the first American Jazz performer to appear in Russia after the fall of the Iron Curtain.
Stowell continues to tour, record, and teach internationally. He has been an Artist-In-Residence at schools in Germany, Indonesia, Argentina, the United States, and Canada. He served as assistant director and performer at Oregon Public Broadcasting's PDX Jazz Summit in 1991, and since 1995 has been a contributing columnist for a number of magazines, including Down Beat, Guitar Player, Canadian Musician, Soundcheck (Germany), and Guitar Club (Italy).
Stowell's Through the Listening Glass with David Friesen was designated one of the "Ten Best Jazz Albums of the Decade" by the Los Angeles Examiner, and he was chosen as a "Talent Deserving Wider Recognition" by Downbeat's International Critic's Poll in 1978 and 1979. He has appeared on BET's Jazz Discovery and Guitar Series television shows.

Fun in February with John Baumann
The Cannon Beach History Center & Museum welcomes Oregon singer and songwriter, John Baumann to perform on Friday, February 27, 2015 at 7:00 p.m.
Baumann has been performing for over twenty years. Baumann's style has been compared to that of Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, and even Stephen Stills. He and his group, Satori Bob, have become well known for their eclectic covers and upbeat folk melodies. The group hales from Eugene, Oregon, although they have garnered a cult following through the Pacific Northwest. The group had a busy 2014 and received acclaim for their "lyrically compelling" songs. While the music has also been called strange, it has that familiar feel - as if you've heard the song before, but can't place it. An ode to music that is well written and thoughtfully composed. This group is a must-see for a February winter night.
This will be their first performance in Cannon Beach. For those of you who have never had the joy of attending a concert at the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum, you are in for a treat! The venue ambiance is warm and welcoming, and the acoustics are phenomenal!
You can purchase tickets by phone at 503-436-9301, at the Museum, or through the online gift shop. Tickets are $15.00 for adults and $2.00 for children. Complimentary refreshments will be available. Don't miss your chance for some toe-tapping fun!
