Hipbone Studio
Dreams & Ghosts: A Family Album Retrospective - 7:30pm
1847 E Burnside
Portland, OR 97214
Price: $15

When does the story of someone we’ve never known become a part of our own story? How do the stories of our family’s past shape those of our present lives? What is the purpose and the power of making sense of our family histories?

In conjunction with the release of her first full-length acoustic singer-songwriter record, Avery Hill presents a performance program of original songs and stories that create portraits and scenes: lovers ride horseback to elope in Missouri; a young woman dreams of sailing a ship into a bright city; an international journey awakens memories of a family homestead. Each scene presents a recognizable human life as a choice that was made: a choice that opened unprecedented options to later generations.

Tickets available at the door or at this link.

Before I went professional with my songs, I performed a bit as a storyteller. In truth, storytelling and songwriting are one and the same, using different media to share meaning with others. I am utterly thrilled to welcome storytelling professionals from the Portland area for a variety show of stories and songs.
