Eliza Gilkyson and Catie Curtis in Portland

Last Thursday night I had the honor of promoting a rare (so far, one-time) co-bill of Eliza Gilkyson and Catie Curtis at the Mission Theater in Portland, OR. Eliza brought along guitar superstar Nina Gerber (of Kate Wolf and Greg Brown fame), and Catie was accompanied by Jen Todd, from Seattle, who was a longtime member of Laura Love's band. Both sets were wonderful, and the best part was when they all got on stage together, first for Eliza's song "Tender Mercies" and later at the end of Catie's set for "Passing Through," a song that Catie co-wrote with Mark Erelli. It was a lovely night, and a great time was had by all, though I do wish the f-ing economy would shape up so we could get these guys the full house they deserve.

Here are a few pictures of us after the show:

I would love to see Nina Gerber play with Eliza. She's such a tasteful guitarist.
