    The Brownsmead Flats will kick off the first Sunday of Stout Month at the Fort George Brewery. The unofficial ambassadors of Fort George Folk, the Brownsmead Flats will bring their blend of old time, folk and bluegrass music to the upstairs stage. Come out to "raise us a glass" of dark beer or the beverage of your choice on Sunday, February 1st at 8pm.

    The Brownsmead Flats play acoustic music that may best be described as “Crabgrass”. This folk/bluegrass style has a strong emphasis on vocal harmonies. A variety of instruments are played by the quintet. Dan Sutherland is featured on the hammered dulcimer, mandolin and fiddle. Ray Raihala picks banjo, guitar and mandolin. Robert Stevens plays the guitar and banjo. John Fenton is on bass and mandolin and Ned Heavenrich plays harmonica.

    The group has four recordings to their credit. “Potluck” was produced in 1996, followed by “Rain” in 1999. In March, 2006, The Brownsmead Flats released two recordings. The first, “Astoria”, is a CD that was a year in the making and features numerous compositions that explore Astoria, its history and topics related to the Columbia-Pacific region. The second CD, “Live at the Liberty”, was recorded at the Liberty Theater in Astoria, Oregon as part of the bicentennial celebration of Lewis and Clark’s journey to the Pacific.

    A happen-chance meeting in Anaheim, California and a last minute cancelation leads us into the rare opportunity to witness some World-class bluegrass music on February 15th at the Fort George Brewery. Nu-Blu, on a national tour, just happened to have a day off and an interest to check out the Oregon coast for the first time. Recently hitting the charts with a collaboration with Sam Moore (of Sam and Dave fame), Nu-Blu will bring their finely-crafted blend of banjo, mandolin, bass and guitar along with their pitch-perfect harmonies. This is another can't-miss night of rare talent at the Fort George's Sunday Night Concert Series.

    Raised among the ferns and the farmland of Northern Washington, lyric-driven songwriter Anna Tivel loved words long before they became the backbone of her music. After moving to Oregon in 2007, she slowly discovered the friendly music scene as a fiddle player, and soon after picked up the guitar and began to write. Her latest album was released in June 2014 on Portland's well-loved Fluff and Gravy Records. Anna is based in Portland, OR and spends her time reading and writing and touring and fiddling and watching her dog try to catch flies by the window.

    "These are organic songs that freely reveal the poetry of the mind, heart, and soul, the sharp imagery of the world translated into sound." - No Depression

    "Anna's strength is that of a lyricist. Her songs are filled with lines that intrigue and haunt." - David Steinberg

We're taking care of that problem. WW is proud to announce the inaugural Oregon Beer Awards, presented by JVNW.

    Best Sour/Wild
    Best Traditional
    Best Barrel-aged (non-sour, non-wild)
    Best "Other" Beer (herbed, spiced, fruit, vegetable, chocolate, coffee, or other flavor)

    Please join us in celebrating our Gold, Silver and Bronze award recipients in each category, as well as Willamette Week's Top Ten Beers of the Year, at the state's first ever Oregon Beer Awards. You'll be able to taste many of the winning beers, and get your hands on an early copy of WW's Beer Guide.

[Astoria] The Columbia River Maritime Museum presents Science on Tap: Beyond Geology: Managing the Risks of Living on the North Coast
Starts: 7:00 pm

Location: Duane St & 14th St Astoria OR 97103
Description: Doors open at 6pm. Seating is limited. All ages are welcome. Food and beverages are available through the Taproom.

Presented by: Patrick Corcoran

Managing the Risks of Living on the North Coast - Thursday, March 5, 2015. Pat Corcoran will emphasize how people on the north coast can grapple productively with the threat of a large earthquake and tsunamis. Considerable time will be spent addressing typical “tsunami scenarios” and fielding questions from the audience. Maps of county inundation zones will be available for participants to locate their “tsunami footprint”, identifying the vulnerability of their home, business, school, etc.

Patrick Corcoran is an associate professor in the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences at Oregon State University. Pat works locally to build community resilience to coastal hazards through the Clatsop County OSU Extension Service and Oregon Sea Grant. Pat’s areas of interest include chronic hazards like coastal erosion and shoreline change, and our greatest catastrophic hazard: the Cascadia subduction zone.
