Radio Stranger takes Woodfest out of the rain. We've staged an outdoor show called Woodfest for many years in West Linn, and every year it rains. Every year! So we are bringing Woodfest to the Willamette Ale & Cider House for a house concert. A large room with high ceiling, a food cart outside, an ale & cider bar in the room, and great music, what could be better? Songwriter and great friend John Manns opens the show followed by Brightwell & Moran (aka Radio Stranger). Michael Henchman (bass) and Jeffrey Koch (elec guitar) join us. This will be a great show. Don't miss it. Tickets $20 Cash at the door.

Tickets in advance via BrownPaperTickets or CASH at door.
