2015 Acoustic Folk! Music Series: Beth Willis & Todd Chatalas
Soul-blues diva, Beth Willis will serenade listeners accompanied by guitarist Todd Chatalas at the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum on Friday, May 29th at 7:00 p.m.
The rock duo performs rock, acoustic and blues music. Willis, who has played in Cannon Beach before, is a local favorite who is well known for her smoky voice and amazing stage presence. 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."
Willis was honored at the Portland Music Awards in 2012 with the award for Best Female Artist. The Oregonian says, "Willis' full, expressive voice brings her sharp songwriting to life, blending Americana, rock, ad western influences…" Willis is a soulful performer that takes listeners on a journey back in time, when music was pristine. Willis has gone from playing on the sidewalks of downtown Portland to being an in-demand musician playing in Las Vegas, to the Aladdin Theater in Portland, and in even in Seattle.
Both Willis and Chatalas are lively performers with an ability to engage their audiences unlike any other. Don't miss this oppurtunity to see Willis and Chatalas in a unique and intimate setting.
