GOSSAMER STRINGS

The Gossamer Strings is an old-time folk music duo whose music employs rich harmonies over beautiful instrumentation on guitar, banjo and mandolin, and haunting original songwriting by Kyle McGonegle and Liat Tova Lis.  They unravel a new story in each song with clear and heartfelt singing that exposes the emotion hidden in the verse.  Their tight instrumentation brings each song to another level, as the pair breathes together, not just in their harmonies, but also through their instruments. The pair invites listeners into their world with warm conversation like old friends.

 

RON SELFRIDGE

Ron Selfridge is a Pacific Northwest native who stops the room with his Folk/Americana music, poetic lyrics and dark melodies.  Still finding his path to new songs, Ron’s music is rich with meaning and impact.  He shares his songs and music with anyone who wishes to lend an ear, and hopes his music might reach out and touch his listeners’ heart and soul.  When not playing music he wanders the deep woods of Oregon avidly pursuing the elusive Sasquatch.

 

KRISTIN & LUKE

Kristin and Luke are both transplants to Eugene; Kristin from the deserts of Arizona and Luke from the swamps of Louisiana.  Living in the Northwest and experiencing four true seasons has become an appropriate metaphor for the kinds of songs they wish to write.  Through honest lyrics and raw harmonies, they strive to express the true realities and journeys people encounter throughout the many seasons of life in an effort to bring inspiration, comfort and hope.

 

RUDOLF KORV

Rudolf Korv made the trek from the southwest deserts of the Mojave to lush promise land of the Pacific Northwest, bringing with him his powerful Americana and Roots music sounds that connect with people of all genres.  Rudolf has been entertaining for decades with his strong vocal, compelling songwriting and adapted renditions of classics that you’ll love.

 

ELROY JORDIN

Wisconsin native Elroy Jordin has been writing and performing for over a decade.  Stylistically he’s been known for blending Midwestern Folk with an Alternative Country sound. His songs are hopeful, wry, witty and romantic -- accompanied by languid acoustic guitar and raucous harmonica.  Love songs are often used as metaphors for other aspects of life’s journey.

 

Each night of the Eugene LIVE! series the audience will vote for their favorite act.  Those artists will come back for an opportunity to win a recording package at Ninkasi Recording Studio and a slot on a select 2019 EventStar Productions festival. 

Tickets are $8 in advance, $10 day of show, and are available at U. of O. Ticket Office, WOW Hall and www.ticketweb.com.  Doors open at 8:00 pm and showtime is 8:30.
