Come celebrate the Anniversary of Cannon Beach’s name with Portland favorite Beth Willis Rock Duo. Soul-blues diva Beth Willis will serenade listeners accompanied by guitarist Todd Chatalas at the Cannon Beach History Center on Friday May 25th at 7:30 p.m. We will open the doors at 7 p.m.
We are excited to celebrate the anniversary of Cannon Beach being given its present-day name in 1922. Rock Duo Beth Willis and Todd Chatalas will 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 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 will also be celebrating her recent Portland Music 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.
Don’t miss this opportunity to see Willis at Chatalas in a unique intimate setting.
