|Bluesy Soul-Singer Beth Willis to play the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum|
Soul-blues diva Beth Willis will serenade listeners at the Cannon Beach History Center on Saturday, March 27th, 2010 from 7:30-9:30 p.m., as part of the Acoustic Folk! Music Series. Tickets can be purchased at the door: $7.00 for adults and $2.00 for children (suggested donation).
Beth Willis is a vocal chameleon. According to The Oregonian, “Willis’ full, expressive voice brings her sharp songwriting to life, blending Americana, rock and western influences . . . “
Her voice is vintage soul – a rock edge, smoothed by a touch of melancholy blues. Whether playing solo, trio or with a full band, Willis’ music remains pure. She started out on the sidewalk in downtown Portland and has gone on to play the House of Blues in Las Vegas, the Aladdin Theatre in Portland and the Experience Music Project in Seattle.
Beth has been called the Acoustic Goddess of Fun. According to the St. John Sentinel, “Beth Willis creates quite a stir . . . “
Portlandblues.com writes of Willis, “[hearing her] was like going back in time to 1992 and hearing Sheryl Crow for the first time. Just one girl (as near to an angel as you can get) and a guitar.”
