The Tree People perform a concert to celebrate the reissue of their second album, “Human Voices” from 1984, by Guerssen Records of Spain. The Tree People are Stephen Cohen on acoustic guitar and voice, Jeff Stier on recorders, flute, orchestra bells and percussion, and Rich Hinrichsen on double bass.
“The Tree People”, recorded in a studio in the woods near Eugene in 1979, has been discovered worldwide, and reissued as a CD by Tiliqua Records of Japan in 2006 and as a vinyl record by Guerssen Records of Spain in 2008 to much critical acclaim. The Tree People have signed with Guerssen Records, http://www.guerssen.com , and in June of 2009 Guerssen has reissued the second Tree People album, “Human Voices”, from 1984. Guerssen will be releasing a third and new Tree People album in 2010, because The Tree People are now recording new music and performing again live at concerts and festivals!

Inspired by playwright, avant-garde theater pioneer, and MacArthur Genius Grant winner Richard Foreman, a dazzling lineup of theater, dance, video and literary artists from Portland and beyond rise to the challenge of creating a new work in only ten days.
PWNW artistic director Linda Austin posted a selection from Foreman’s online notebooks at 12:01 am on July 9. On July 19 audiences will thrill to the amusing, shocking and enlightening results created by 18 solo artists/groups, presented in two different programs. This is a great chance to enjoy a broad spectrum of work across media, and a wonderful meditation on inspiration, interpretation, and the connections and disjunctions in between.
Beer, wine and great food by culinary artists Cyndy Chan & Anna Daedalus.
