Rachel Laven, Five Letter Word, Dennis Warner + more
On the eve of the FAR-West Folk Alliance conference, we’ll hear from some of the top talent on their way to the event. Rachel Laven’s vocalizations don’t strain too far from her speaking voice which is buoyant and melodic with a gentle,Texan accent. She is a powerhouse of energy, breathing through notes breezily with a passionate aire. Mix three singer-songwriters, several stringed instruments, and a variety of percussive techniques, and you get Five Letter Word. Made up of Leigh Jones, Clara Baker and Audra Nemir, this Portland-based trio draws on influences such as The Wailin’ Jennys, The Dixie Chicks, and Joni Mitchell, blending their harmonies into songs from folk to bluegrass to blues and beyond. Folk/Americana musician and entertainer Dennis Warner has established a well-deserved reputation for captivating audiences with his smooth vocals, distinguished songs, enthusiastic personality and stellar playing on both six and twelve string guitars. This is sure to be a fantastic night of music.
