Whirled Music Series featuring Back Porch Soiree and Erika Gabonay
Wednesday, February 19, 2020
Back Porch Soiree plays a wide range of string style music with vocals and harmonies from all members. Their style encompasses folk, bluegrass, celtic, cajun, country, swing and more. It was once described as, “It’s a mouthful, but boy is it fun.”
Erika Gabonay: A coal miner’s granddaughter from the hills of Appalachia turned Oregonian, singer-songwriter Erika Gabonay’s music conveys her uncommon perspective. Her songs are flavored with Americana and folk, and their lyrics vacillate between depth and playfulness. Once described as “Jewel meets Old Crow Medicine Show,” she switches easily between guitar techniques as her sweet vocals open channels from the ear to the heart.
