Sisters Folk Festival Winter Concert Series @ Sisters High School Auditorium
7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Sisters Folk Festival Winter

 

Thursday, January 9: The California Honeydrops will return to Sisters after a rousing 2013 festival appearance. Drawing heavily on Southern soul and Bay-area R&B with a twist of New Orleans second-line street music, the Honeydrops defy genres. Their style may not have a name, but one thing is certain: The California Honeydrops don’t just play music; they throw parties.

Saturday, March 1: The incomparable Willy Porter will bring his inventive guitar-playing, passionate songwriting and entertaining stage-show back to Sisters. Porter continues to amaze with heavy guitar-driven instrumentals, heartfelt and insightful lyrics, and absolute humor in his loop-effect stories about the underbelly of society.

Tuesday, March 18: The return of Welsh singer-songwriter Martyn Joseph, a favorite of both the festival and the 2012 winter concerts. Considered a “courageous” live entertainer, Martyn follows in the tradition of social protest and commentary with intimate portrayals of the human condition. His songs reflect a 30-year career with 31 albums and thousands of live performances.

Saturday, March 29: To conclude the series, the festival will present a multi-media performance by the Celtic super-group, Solas. “Irish-America’s most influential band,” according to NPR, will perform as they celebrate the release of Shamrock City, their 11th album and most ambitious project and live show to date. It is a family story of immigration, mining and murder, and the remarkable history of Michael Conway and Butte, Montana.

Doors open at 6:30pm.

Raise your glass! Central Oregon Beer Week is May 23rd to 31st, 2014.

Central Oregon’s craft beer industry continues to thrive. Together with the region’s 26 (and counting) breweries – plus dozens of other businesses and events tailored for craft beer aficionados – COBW celebrates it all.

Kickoff Party and SMaSH Beer Fest @ O’Kanes at McMenamins Old St. Francis School 
You’re invited to the release party for Central Oregon Beer Week’s signature beer style … SMaSH! Seventeen Central Oregon breweries will be pouring SMaSH (Single Malt Single Hop) craft beers made just for this event!
Admission is $20 and includes a punch card for 12 4oz tasters, and a commemorative 2014 COBW glass. Additional punch cards will be available for purchase. Food & non-alcoholic beverages will be served up by McMenamins and available for purchase. Visit our SMaSH Fest page!

Visit their website for a schedule of events!

Single Malt Single Hop Festival @ McMenamins Old Saint Francis School
3:00 pm – 9:00 pm

SMaSH

What’s a SMaSH? SMaSH is an acronym for “Single Malt and Single Hop”. Why SMaSH? The idea is to break brewing down to its basic elements and emphasize the flavor of a single malt and single hop variety. SMaSH emphasizes the flavor of a single malt and a single hop, letting both the brewer and you understand what each bring to the beer.

Some styles like Pilsners, Lagers, and IPAs work better as SMaSH beers than others do, but the style chosen by our participating Central Oregon brewers is entirely up to them, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Stop by our SMaSH Fest for a chance to taste every one of these beers!

GET TICKETS!

Tickets include:
+ Punch pass good for 12 4oz pours
+ Glassware
+ BONUS sticker for online orders!

To enjoy the event, purchase a pint glass and tickets, and meander through all 30 beer stations located throughout Powerhouse Drive in the Old Mill District (immediately across the river from the Les Schwab Amphitheater). At each station you choose to visit, you can purchase a 4 ounce taste (1 taste = 1 ticket). Full pint pours from Deschutes Brewery will be available in Center Plaza.

We will have live music and performances from a variety of local bands/groups througout the event, as well as Central Oregon Beer Angels, the Central Oregon Brewer’s Guild, Central Oregon Homebrewers Association, Visit Bend and more.

The Fermentation Celebration is a family and pet-friendly event, but remember, it is centered around beer.
