MAY 2017 ROGUE RECREATION SUMMER MUSIC SERIES

May 27, 2017 | 6:00-8:00pm
Union Creek Campground Day Use Area

Pete Herzog Performs
Pete Herzog started playing at the age of 8 on a lap steel. He learned the slide and played using all the harmonics and overtones he could wring out of an instrument. During the folk revival, he switched to a regular guitar, but eventually was drawn to playing bottleneck in various open tunings. Herzog discovered blues, bluegrass, and other roots type music. Not knowing better at the time, he learned to play with a flat-pick, not traditional but giving him a different style and sound. When he first heard the blues he was instantly taken with the style, so similar to Hawaiian music in approach yet so different in sound and effect. Both types of music use the instrument as another voice, using all the harmonics and overtones to make the guitar sing.

Union Creek Amphitheater

Southern Oregon Scottish Bagpipe Band
Established in 1931 by WWII Veterans. Maybe one of the oldest Band on the Pacific Northwest. The Medford-area based Southern Oregon Scottish Bagpipe Band was formed in 1931 by a group of World War I Veterans and the American Legion. The band’s first performance was on Armistice Day, 1931. Band members wear the Muted Anderson tartan, which is unique among Scottish tartans because it is the only one known to have seven colors. With the introduction of Latin rhythms on congas and shakers into traditional Scottish bagpipe tunes, the band is on the edge of the wave of fusion music that blends the music of many cultures into a sound all its own.

Union Creek Amphitheater

The Brothers Reed
The Brothers Reed have finally united to create music together after twelve years of being 3000 miles apart. Phil moved to the beautiful Pacific Northwest and joined forces with Aaron in a project named Buckle Rash. Playing around with their not so high-energy solo creations they developed something on the side. Musical tastes for both have changed over the years and evolved into a medley of folk/bluegrass/pop/country and so on. Focusing on tight harmonies and pretty riffs The Brothers Reed want to bring you a unique listening experience often filling the between-time during shows with comedy and fun while balancing that with many serious songs about love and everyday life.
