On March 14, 2017, Portland Abbey Arts in North Portland plays host to a country themed Round. Country singers John White, Lynn Conover, and Keith Baich will join slam poet Jude Brewer to perform rounds of music and poetry while visual artist Joe Fortunado paints.

This monthly arts gathering originated at the Fremont Abbey Arts Center in Seattle and has since established a presence in Portland. On the second Tuesday of the month though July 2017, three songwriters and a slam poet share the stage with additional musicians occasionally joining in. A visual artist depicts their experience of this interweaving of music and poetry, thus creating a singular collaborative evening experience shared by the audience and the artists.

The Portland Round is held at the Portland Abbey ‘Undercroft’ (Lower Level) on 7600 N. Hereford Avenue in Portland, OR 97203. Doors open at 7:15pm with the show starting at 8pm. All ages. $5.00, ticket at the door.
