The Liberty Theatre will present a concert June 14 and 15
June 13, 2019
Blind Pilot, with 45th Parallel Universe Orchestra, will perform June 14 and 15, at 7:30 p.m, at The Liberty Theatre, 1203 Commercial St., Astoria. General admission tickets are $35.
Blind Pilot, which consists of Israel Nebeker, Ryan Dobrowski, Kati Claborn, Dave Jorgensen, Ian Krist and Luke Ydstie, was formed in Portland in 2007 when songwriter Israel Nebeker and co-founding member Ryan Dobrowski went on a west coast tour via bicycle. Twelve years later, Blind Pilot has released three studio albums, 3 Rounds And A Sound (2008), We Are The Tide (2011) and And Then Like Lions (2016) and has sold out concerts throughout the U.S., Europe and the UK since its inception. The band has performed on Ellen and The Late Show With David Letterman as well as at Newport Folk Festival, Bonnaroo, and Lollapalooza among others.
They will be joined by Helios Camerata, a 45th Parallel Universe ensemble. Since 2009, 45th Parallel has happily demolished distinctions between old and new chamber music, bluegrass and jazz, fiddle and folk. By bringing fragmented audiences together, 45th Parallel reflects Portland’s surging creative communities in fresh and imaginative ways.
45th Parallel stands apart from Portland’s other chamber groups by its borderless and unbounded innovation. Call it 360-degree programming. The city’s finest musicians weave Bach and Beethoven into adventurous programs of “forbidden” music, or violin wizardry by virtuosos such as Gilles Apap and Kevin Burke. Their far-reaching collaborations also include gospel singers and Persian musicians, embracing Portland’s growing diversity.
Carruthers Restaurant and Commodore Hotel Astoria packages are available as well. Tickets can be purchased online at http://www.libertyastoria.org or in their Box Office Wed-Sat 2-5:30 p.m.
