Portland Cello Project

Portland Cello Project

Since the group's inception in late 2007, the Portland Cello Project (or, PCP, as their fans affectionately call them), has wowed audiences all over the country with extravagant performances, everywhere from Prairie Home Companion, to that punk rock club in the part of town your grandma warns you not to go to after dark. The group has built a reputation mixing genres and blurring musical lines and perceptions wherever they go.

On their upcoming show, the Portland Cello Project will masterfully redefine and interweave three composers from three different generations: Beck Hansen, Dave Brubeck and JS Bach. From "Take 5" to the Saint Matthew's Passion to selections from Beck's sheet-music only release, Song Reader, PCP's "Beck, Bach and Brubeck" tour will span centuries of music with a repertoire of works by these composers and more. Portland-based folk artist Laura Gibson will be the featured vocalist on this tour, joining PCP to perform selections from the Song Reader. Proving that you can, occasionally, take it with you, PCP will offer a CD of selections from their live shows that will be available only at these shows.

Laura Gibson

Perhaps, more than anything, Gibson’s songs might be quiet reflections of the human body, reflections both of strength, and of frailty. Gibson offers up an intimate affirmation of mortality, both vulnerable and courageous, dark and illuminating, ordinary and extraordinary.
