Red House Concerts presents Tim May and Steve Smith – a Benefit for Kôr

Tim and Steve duo house concert flyer

Join us for an evening with Tim May and Steve Smith. The duo brings an evening of original, traditional and swing music with mandolinist/vocalist Steve Smith and Nashville guitarist/vocalist Tim May. Smith and May originally met while on staff at Camp Bluegrass in Levelland, Texas and quickly discovered many common musical threads for exploration honoring tradition and improvisation. Their new CD/EP (seven songs) reflects upon this acoustic music force the duo has become. Their shows include tight vocal harmonies, dazzling guitar, mandolin, octave mandolin and twin mandolin works throughout a broad range of styles and includes many original vocal and instrumental works.

Wine and beer will be provided for a suggested donation.

All proceeds from this show support Kôr’s mission to provide environmentally sustainable and permanently affordable homeownership opportunities for those who contribute to the fabric of the Bend area economy and community.

Tickets can be purchased at Brown Paper Tickets for $22, or at the door for $25
