Live Original Music by Siena & Ryan Kwan

when: May 15th 7-9pm

Siena Christie is a country-folk singer-songwriter based in Vancouver, Washington. Her crystal-clear voice and keenly empathic lyrics have earned comparisons to Alison Krauss, Jewel, and Shawn Colvin, as well as critical acclaim both locally and nationally. Most recently, she won Best Overall Song in Portland’s Folk Festival’s song contest for her entry “Dear Northland.”

 

Ryan Kwan is a multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter based in Portland, OR. Born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, Ryan blends lyrics thru the depth of his psyche and emotions and weaves them with a range of eclectic moods and rhythms as strumming folk-punky grooves on the uke or melodic fingerpicking guitar. His vibrato voice is often reminded of Beirut and Devendra Banhart. Known in the local community by the song “Mystery Cloud”. 
Some of his music can be found here

cost: donations for musicians appreciated

and a portion of drink sales are also given to musicians

Woohoo!

We honor and thank the Polynesians, Hawaiians, Micronesians, and Asian-Pacific Islanders, for protecting the islands, the animals, and the South Pacific Oceans. Through their perseverance to survive past and modern day colonization, the history and wisdom of the ancient ways are maintained.

I can support by embodying change. Imbuing reverence and respect can take the form of learning Pacific Islander history, their culture, their wisdom.  Humility and kindness when visiting the Islands are also ways to honor those indigenous to these regions.  All too often people take vacations without reverence or respect for the places they visit.  Please educate, listen, and change accordingly so that we might create a better World.
