Rainspout Music Fest Rocks Yachats Area of Oregon Coast This Weekend

(Yachats, Oregon) – In comes the rain to the central Oregon coast – the Rainspout Music Festival, that is. The tiny town of Yachats hosts this grand affair on April 28 – 30, all in the spirit of a celebration of spring slowly becoming summer. This time around, Polly Plumb Productions is promising unique new sounds and old time traditional music finding harmony together at this popular event.

Friday night festivities start with a multi-course dinner prepared by The Drift Inn Café. Immerse yourself in the intriguing sounds of The Barbra Dzuro Jazz Quartet. Then, The Biondi - Russell Band will knock your socks off, featuring Joanne Broh in a tribute to Etta James. This goes from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Saturday events include a songwriting workshop by Lincoln County singer songwriter Barbara Turrill, plus a performance by Barbara that is accompanied by Morgan Spiess on clarinet. A children's show, jam session, sing-a-long and performances by Mike & Carleen McCornack, The New Folksters, and Terry Trenholm fill the afternoon as well.

On Saturday night, you can take an entrancing musical journey via the category-defying Betty and The Boy – an acoustic quartet that straddles the worlds of folk, bluegrass and minimallist rock. Then, enjoy passage to an imaginative musical landscape with the lush harmonies of The East West International Project, a band which is made up of people from different parts of the world and fuses various traditions from each.
