Beth Willis Concert

Soul-blues diva, Beth Willis and guitarist, Todd Chatalas will knock your socks off for this night of joy and rivalry at the Cannon Beach History Center and Museum on Friday, May 26.

Rock Duo Beth Willis and Todd Chatalas perform both rock, acoustic, and blues music. Willis, who has played in Cannon Beach before, is a local favorite who is well known for her smoky voice and and an amazing stage presence.

Portlandblues.com writes of Willis, "[hearing her] was like going back in time to 1992 and hearing Sheryl Crow for the first time. Just one girl (as near to an angel as you can get) and a guitar."

Willis was honored at the Portland Music Awards in 2012 with the award for Best Female Artist. The Oregonian says, "Willis' full, expressive voice brings her sharp songwriting to life, blending Americana, rock, and western influences..." Willis is a soulful performer that takes listeners on a journey back in time, when music was pristine. Willis has gone from playing on the sidewalks of downtown Portland to being an in-demand musician playing from Las Vegas, to the Aladdin Theater in Portland, and even to Seattle.

Seating for the Willis & Chatalas concert is limited. Tickets are just $15 with the proceeds benefiting the Museum's seasonal exhibits and free lecture series. Cost of the ticket includes tasty treats and donated libations. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the music starts at 7:00 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased at the Museum, over the phone (503-436-9301), or through the online gift shop.


Lodging for this event has been sponsored by The Waves of Cannon Beach, Oregon!

Friday, June 9, 2017 at 7:00 p.m.:

John Stowell Concert


For over a decade the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum has welcomed renowned musicians from all over the United States. The series kicks-off each January and continues through May, and sometimes even June: from Jazz to toe-tapping Celtic music and everything in between. The series ends with world-renowned jazz guitarist John Stowell on June 9.

This isn’t Stowell’s first performance at the museum. He has become a local favorite. A constant traveler, Stowell was the first American Jazz performer to appear in Russia after the fall of the Iron Curtain and he continued to sell out performances there for two decades after.

Stowell teaches 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.

“More guitarists would play like John Stowell if they knew how.” Herb Ellis

Seating for this concert is limited. Tickets for the Stowell concert are just $10 with the proceeds benefiting the Museum’s seasonal exhibits, and free lecture series. Cost of the ticket include tasty treats and donated libations. Music starts at 7:00 p.m. and the doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased over the phone (503-436-9301), at the Museum, or through the online gift shop.
