By TOM D’ANTONI // Montavilla Jazz Festival Artistic Director Ryan Meagher tell us all about all of the performers in the 2019 Festival–August 17 & 18.
We’re back at the Café in Artichoke Music, 2007 SE Powell Boulevard for another OMN Coffeeshop Conversation…and they actually give us coffee, too.
We’ve got some exciting stuff planned for you over the next few months, but it’s still very hush hush sweet Charlotte.
With me today is Ryan Meagher, for those of you reading this, it’s pronounced “Marr.” You know him as a guitarist and composer and also as Artistic Director of the Montavilla Jazz Festival, coming up on Saturday and Sunday, August 17 and 18 at Portland Metro Arts.
It’s a special festival. No other like it. It’s a part of Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble and that means new music, some of which is composed expressly for the festival.
Ryan is going to tell us about all of the performers. Really.
