American Heritage is a solar powered project of The Sunrise Review to capture American landscapes and landmarks through music, featuring music inspired by UNESCO World Heritage sites in the US and other interesting places along the way. This project is sponsored by Artspire, a project of the New York Foundation for the Arts and is eligible for tax-deductible donations.

The event will be an evening of Americana with a dinner and performances. Food by Salt, Fire & Time and Retrolicious. Music by The Sunrise Review feat. Michael Money, The Student Loan, The Brown Chicken Brown Cow String Band

The Sunrise Review is the solar-powered recording project of Portland-based musician Graham Smith-White. The innovative use of a portable solar generator allows music inspired by scenic landscapes to be captured in stunning locations and unique studio settings. The project currently features music written and recorded in Australia, Oregon and Hawaii. American Heritage is a series of music inspired by UNESCO World Heritage sites and other landmarks throughout the US, sponsored by the New York Foundation for the Arts, and set to be completed in 2012 and 2013.

Salt, Fire & Time is a prepared foods grocery selling bone broths, cultured vegetables, starter cultures, granola, pork lard, frozen meats & offal, fresh juices and nut milks, gluten free pies, tea, jams and chutneys, nutritional supplements and fermented sodas among other locally sourced items. The goal is to make health supportive food accessible to you in Portland!

The Student Loan is an internationally touring bluegrass band that has been recognized by Jazz at Lincoln Center as the cutting edge of American roots music. They have worked extensively as musical ambassadors for the U.S. State Department and have performed in 16 countries on 5 continents. Borrowing heavily from a wide variety of styles their original music mixes catchy bluegrass melodies with classical and jamband forms to create an innovative new acoustic musical style distinctly their own.

Retrolicious is a Portland food cart dedicated to exploring old school favorites representing flavor combinations that are comforting, classic and always made fresh; often with our own fresh twist. So, come on down and enjoy your new favorites!

This all-acoustic quintet from the mountains of southern West Virginia play with an authenticity rarely heard in these times.  BrownChicken BrownCow StringBand blends old time fiddle music with shades of gypsy, folk, jazz, celtic, and bluegrass to deliver a fresh sound with a driving rhythm and sophisticated melodic arrangements, provoking audiences across the country to rave about their talent.

    Oh boy, this pretty much hits all of my Portland kinks! Solar power, heritage music, health food, and fiddles? Yes please!! This is exactly the sort of night out I can enjoy with my mom, who apparently is my go-to date night partner. Oh the joys of having my boyfriend on another continent!
