First Fridays with Lloyd Jones (series)

Artichoke Music, 2007 SE Powell Blvd., Portland, OR

This is a super-fun performance series! The small venue features a small stage with great sound, lighting, etc. Doors open at 6:30pm.  Location of seating is first-come, first-served.  In the case of a sold out show patrons may be required to share seats at tables.  Email adam@artichokemusic.org ahead of time for parties of 4 or more.

From Artichoke Music's Facebook page:

We are thrilled to invite you all to First Friday's w/ Lloyd Jones! Guitarist Lloyd Jones: the best kept roots, blues and Americana secret on the contemporary scene.

Portland, Oregon roots artist Lloyd Jones has recorded six critically acclaimed albums, toured internationally, and racked up dozens of major awards and accolades. He’s a relentless road dog, hitting festival stages, Delbert’s annual Sandy Beaches Cruises (he’s been a regular on six winter cruises), and clubs all across the land to enthusiastic crowds who can’t get enough of his swampy blues, his backporch picking, his serious-as-anthrax funk, soul, roadhouse two-beats, and old-school rhythm and blues (back before the R&B tag was somehow appropriated for other musical purposes, apparently when we weren’t looking). Yet he may be the most invisible, best-kept roots/blues/Americana secret on the contemporary scene.
