Terry Robb has recorded over a dozen blues albums. He has played on and produced half a dozen of John Fahey's CDs, and toured with Steve Miller. He contributed a song to Robert Redford's successful film Horse Whisperer.
Together, Doug, Terry, and Mark have been on national television, their music has been played in major films, they have performed on National Public Radio. Their music is regularly licensed for syndicated TV, radio shows and regional and national advertising campaigns. All things considered, the Portland Folk Music Society May concert is going to be a trip into acoustic-guitar amazementland. Terry, Mark and Doug aren't just good -- they are sublime. You will be enlivened during the concert and leave with your heart and head full of wonderful memories of the great music.
See you there.
