From classical to Jazz, pop to metal, transcendent to raucous, the group will be presenting a full evening of what has become their signature, genre-bending style of performance. Expect everything from Bach to Coltrane to Radiohead, including guest collaborations with a diverse assortment of songwriters and instrumentalists.
Special guests on this tour include ex-Missoulian Maiah Wynne, a songwriter/multi-instrumentalist whose credits include the track used for the closing credits for the film The Ballad of Lefty Brown, and who just won second place in the Seattle Museum of Pop Culture’s Sound Off Competition. Also touring with PCP this time around is trumpeter Farnell Newton, a staple of the Portland jazz and funk scene whose performance and recording credits include Bootsy Collins and Liv Warfield.
Artists similar to Portland Cello Project include: Takénobu, Wendy Sutter, Invert, Giovanni Sollima, and Claude Lamothe.
