Sue and I are very excited to have James Low, one of the best songwriters in the Northwest’s Alt-Country scene, back to the Arts Center.

James started out in a one-stop-light town in Eastern Oregon that had a single AM radio station that went off the air every night at 6 pm. Following his father’s lead he starting writing songs, and after finishing school he escaped to New York, working in the kitchen at roots and blues club The Lone Star Roadhouse where he came under the sway of classic blues and country musicians like Rufus and Carla Thomas and Emmy Lou Harris.
