Acoustic Blues Masters - press photoFor the second year, the Menucha Retreat and Conference Center in Corbett, Oregon will be hosting the Blues In The Gorge Acoustic Workshop, co-sponsored by the Cascade Blues Association. This year’s featured Blues Masters instructors are five of the world’s premier guitarists: Mary Flower, Pat Donahue, Josh White Jr., Scott Ainslie and Eleanor Ellis. The workshop unfortunately closes registration on September 9 and was sold out last year. But if you were unable to attend these special small intimate classes you’re still able to see these fantastic musicians perform live on stage.

All five musicians will be concluding the four day workshop with a special concert at the Alberta Rose Theatre in Portland on Sunday, October 4. Each artist will perform individually and collectively throughout the concert. Show time is 7:30 and this event is open to minors when accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
