Went and saw our music teacher do her set at the Women With the Blues event Friday. Anne Weiss, with a voice that sounded like a combination of Joni Mitchell and Janis Joplin, and she killed it. Treat yourself to one of her CDs, she's the bomb. 

Actually, the entire event was killer. Janice Scroggins, Mary Flower, LaRhonda Steele, Arietta Ward, Nafisaria Scrogins, and Lauren and Sarah Steele at the Alberta Rose. 

Mary Flower is really, really good on the guitar, including some lap-slide playing. 

I was particularly impressed by LaRhonda Steele's daughters, Lauren and Sarah, who at ages eleven and sixteen, had harmony and voices passing terrific, and great stage presence.

Had shrimp and grits at Bernie's Southern Bistro, and wound up talking to a woman at the show from Louisiana who recommended a new place to eat in Portland called The Screen Door.

Fahn ole time all the way around.
