  • LCCC Presents: Nora Jane Struthers and the Party Line

    December 2nd, 2017 to December 2nd, 2017

    Hooray and hearty welcome to Nora Jane Struthers, a Nashville-based singer and songwriter who is known for her Americana and roots rock. Struthers’ 2013 album Carnival, recorded with her touring band The Party Line, spent more than three months in the Top 20 of Americana Radio charts and peaked at No. 7. Carnival ranked 24th on the 2013 Americana Airplay Top 100 list. In a review of Carnival, the Tampa Bay Times wrote that Struthers’ unique brand of “rich storytelling, repeat-worth melodies and a modern mashup of traditional, bluegrass folk, country and rock influences” sets her apart from many roots-inspired contemporaries.

  • LCCC Presents: Halie for the Holidays

    December 6th, 2017 to December 6th, 2017

    Let Halie Loren’s warm voice and gentle phrasing usher in your holiday season. Halie is based in Eugene, and is a local favorite here on the coast, but her trio is welcomed in jazz clubs all over the world. Authenticity and connection is one of the primary keys to Loren’s artistic approach: whether it’s injecting the American Songbook with old-school soul or finding a familiar thread of nostalgia in newly-penned originals, no matter the language (her repertoire finds her singing in French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, and more), Loren finds ways to bridge cultures and genres in unlikely and always heart-felt ways. “Music creates greater connection with other people, connection to my purpose for existence,” Loren says.
