Portland’5 Centers for the Arts and ArtBar & Bistro are proud to present the 11th Annual Music on Main summer outdoor concert series. On Wednesday evenings starting in July, Portland’5 Centers for the Arts takes advantage of the lovely summer weather to present Music on Main, our free outdoor concert series which features popular local and regional musicians performing a diverse collection of music.

These free concerts are held in downtown Portland on Southwest Main Street, between Broadway & Park Ave., next to Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall. Each concert begins at 5 p.m. and ends at 7 p.m.  Tickets are not required for entry. Food and delicious libations will be served by ArtBar & Bistro starting at 4:30 p.m.

The season kicks off with a blistering dance frenzy and the music of Orquestra Pacifico Tropical, followed by theballadry Logan Brill – a perfect mix of folk-y influence and Nashville’s more contemporary country style. Audiences will be delighted by the musical collaboration of Kathryn Claire and Big Bridges featuring Japanese guitarist Takashi O’Hashi. Come dance with The Garcia Birthday Band, the Pacific Northwest’s premier Grateful Dead experience and rock out with Portland super group Eyelids, joined by the rustic Americana sounds of Denim Wedding. Enjoy the high-energy renditions of classic songs from The Yachtsmen and the award-winning finger picking guitar of Mary Flower and the BBQ Boys. We will also welcome a soulful mix of rock, folk and blues performed by Redray Frazier and Mic Crenshaw. Bringing their party music to Music on Main – Red Baraat merges North Indian Bhangra with elements of go-go, rock and jazz. Finally we round out our concert series with the eclectic, ‘Copacabana style’ ensemble Pepe and the Bottle Blondes. All told, this will be a fun and high-energy season!
