Robin Jackson and the Caravan with Jonathan Brinkley
Portland's own Robin Jackson and the Caravan (with members of Marchfourth!, Edna Vasquez Trio and Portland Cello Project) offer an intimate night of dreamy cinematic soul, whimsical indie folk and gypsy jazzy Americana. The evening's special opening guest is the heartfelt folk song-crafter Jonathan Brinkley.
"A catchy and captivating song crafter...a true storyteller" - NPR
Award winning Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Robin Jackson, known for his wild, theatrical contributions to bands like Vagabond Opera and the March Fourth Marching Band, has brought a strong presence to the world of indie folk. Mr Jackson, often joined by his all-star six piece ensemble of NW musicians The Caravan, draws upon the moody spirit of his rain-soaked, Portland, Oregon home to create an eclectic brew of dreamy folk-pop, cinematic indie rock and above all, enigmatic storytelling.
With a degree in ethnomusicology and an unflagging musical curiosity, Jackson has lived and busked around the world, from an intentional beach community in New Zealand to the streets of Europe. He is a master of a myriad of instruments, from saxophone to mbira and has also performed or recorded with notable acts such as Gregory Allen Isakov, Emancipator, Devotchka, and Amanda Palmer. An impresario of community and collaboration, Jackson has built on his colorful, bohemian upbringing and dedicated himself to creating and supporting music around Portland, Or where he lives on an urban farm with his cat and a circus. His newest album, Dark Stars, was recorded in the legendary Type Foundry Studios and is available everywhere.
Jonathan Brinkley's refreshingly honest approach to songwriting, matched with the unwavering vulnerability of his voice, has earned him a place in the hearts of fans around the world. With a passionate eye toward the adventure of self-discovery, he delivers a unique experience that stays with the listener long after the song has ended.
"Jonathan Brinkley's Unguarded Heart album is full of the lightness of full-hearted optimism backed up by solid musicians and production. The tunes are alive with clarity and accessibility." Mike Meyer - KRVM DJathan
