House concert this Friday
Vermont-based Atlantic Crossing is playing a house concert at the home of Paul Blackburn and Kristen Dillon on Friday at 7:30 p.m. Come enjoy this fine string band in a cozy setting. Tea and cookies will be served. 401 Montello, Hood River. 387-4011 for info.
Atlantic Crossing releases their third recording, “Groundswell” this month. For this Champlain Valley band, who were originally drawn together by a love of Celtic music, “Groundswell” represents a homecoming of sorts. Their experience playing Celtic and Quebecois folk music has led them to re-examine the traditional music of New England, and they have developed an affinity for this rich, diverse and largely unperformed cultural resource.
Alibi to play American Legion
Alibi pays tribute to the American Legion on April 15, with a 8-midnight rock and roll show, to honor the hall and its 43-year tradition. Admission for Legion members will be free. Public admission is $5, for 21 and over.
This may be the last opportunity for Hood River to come together and say ‘thank you’ to the American Legion Post 22, established in 1919. The post and auxilliary have helped vetereans, families, children-in-need along with sponsoring scholarships, civic affairs, Legion baseball, the boxing club, the Toastmasters and the organization of 29 climbs on Mount Hood involving over 3,500 people.
Post 22 will be moving soon from its 43-year-old building, and asks all veterans in service now to contact Legion Post 22, 215 Cascade, Hood River, Or 97031.
