Del Rey in HR March 31
Critics say, “Del Rey, who plays a syncopated style of guitar based on prewar blues and barrelhouse piano traditions, is one of the best fingerpickers of this or any generation. Whilst known for her amazing instrumental skills … it should not be overlooked that she always provides a very entertaining show, full of variety, drama and humour.” House concert Friday, March 31 at 7 p.m., 401 Montello Ave., Hood River. Donations are accepted at the door. For more information, call Paul Blackburn at 541-387-4011.
