Last June, Southern Oregon blues duo David Pinsky & Phil Newton won the right to represent the Cascade Blues Association in Memphis this coming January at the International Blues Challenge by taking the top scores in the Journey To Memphis competition in the solo/duo category. This will be their second trip to the IBC as they performed their last year as the representatives for Eugene’s Rainy Day Blues Society. Always a fun time on stage, the two are sensational story tellers and first-class musicians working in a guitar-harmonica format. Recently the pair have put together their very first recording together titled Over The Moon that brings their effervescent stage act onto disc.

David Pinsky & Phil Newton will be traveling to the Portland area with the dual purpose of celebrating their new CD, while trying to raise funds to help offset their traveling expenses to Memphis. The show will take place at The Lehrer, 8775 SW Canyon Lane in Beaverton, on Thursday, November 6th for an early 7:00 – 10:00 pm performance. Admission is $10.00. Come on out and help David and Phil get back to Memphis and pick up a copy of this excellent CD as well. The two have a lot of fun onstage and it rubs off onto the audience just as much. Don’t miss it.
