Grammy nominated New Orleans-based singer/songwriter Andrew Duhon is a teller of stories with an undeniably weighted and soulful voice. Duhon has three recordings under his belt and has toured solo Andrew Duhon - press photofor much of his career. A troubadour element is certainly present in his performances; he’s truly a guide to modern day folklore. His latest group, The Andrew Duhon Trio (with upright bassist Myles Weeks and drummer Maxwell Zemanovic) has been crossing the American landscape, touring and creating together while supporting their latest project, The Moorings.

The Andrew Duhon Trio will be appearing in Portland for a pair of shows over the long Labor Day weekend. On Sunday, September 6, they will be at the Doug Fir Lounge, 830 E. Burnside, for a free 3:00 pm performance on the patio as part of the Pickin’ on Sundays series. These shows fill up quickly, so plan on arriving early to get into the patio. 21 & over only.

But if you miss out on the outdoor show on Sunday, the perfect setting for this type of performance is at the intimate Lake Theater and Café in Lake Oswego, 106 N. State Street. This Labor Day, Monday, September 7, show starts at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $12.00 and can be ordered in advance by visiting laketheatercafe.com.
