Lane Longview WA, House Concert? Korby Lenker (11) Longview WA, House Concert? Korby Lenker 23 Mar 03


I'm thinking of hosting a house concert near Longview, Washington. Its short notice - April 6th and I'm wondering if anyone in the area may be intersted in coming... kind of concerned about getting enought people to make it worth his while... Please contact me if you're intersted... The artist is Korby Lenker... he plays folk, bluegrass and trad stuff on several instruments and does some very nice stuff that you can check out at: www.korbylenker.com   You need to go to the "buying" tab to hear some sound files.


Here's a review on him:
Not only is award-winning singer-songwriter Korby Lenker a real good picker, but he also sings with a voice as smooth as Tennessee molasses. Imagine a more honest Roy Rogers. A Gillian Welch with a hot-picking edge. This acoustic crooner brings his high-lonesome singing from the Northwestern-most county in the US of A. With an ambitious sweep of instruments—guitar, mandolin, fiddle and pennywhistle among them—Korby blends honest songcraft with the subtle ferocity of traditional old-time and bluegrass music. An engaging performer, his natural penchant for play translates into an uncanny ability to connect with his audience: expect to hear tragic ballads, playful fiddle tunes, fast flat-picking, and a lot of great singing from this genuinely original voice from the Pacific Northwest.
