Brian Harrison presents
'A Bootlegger's Son' at Lakewood
Composer Brian Harrison will present "A Bootlegger's Son," an American folk rock story of family and alcohol in early Oregon, at the Lakewood Center for the Arts Sept. 18 at 7 p.m. The musical project is a mixed media walk through time.
Coupled with emotive imagery the songs evoke many moods telling the story of Oregon's wild past through the eyes of two children, emigrating from Europe to Portland with their parents. The children endure "unthinkable events and struggle to overcome the darkness of greed, alcohol, abuse and must save their grandfather's fortune."
"A Bootlegger's Son" coalesced from a merge of Harrison's interest in Oregon history and his folk-rock sensibilities. His classical training in piano and guitar shines in the compositions, strengthened by his extensive and diverse background as a multi-genre artist.
Tickets are $30 purchased in advance at lakewood-center.org and $35 at the door.
