The Rosses were commissioned by the state in 1991 to create a musical based upon diaries of the Oregon Trail. That show led to the formation of The Trail Band and 13 CDs recorded over 25 years featuring songs about timber towns, Celilo Falls, the Oregon Trail, ranching, Tonya Harding, and life on the high desert.

 

Please join us for this special evening.

The Rosses will play the Oregon Stories tunes in the first hour, take an intermission, and play a second set with tunes from Seafood Mama and Quarterflash inspired by bluegrass, swing, jazz, pop, and folk genres. Eddie Parente’s wide-ranging virtuosity on the violin fills in perfectly between Rindy Ross’s airy vocals and Marv’s unique guitar voicings.
