Front Porch House Show–Dixie Chicks’ “Lullaby”

This is the most recent email from our mailing list. To be added, please email:

Hello, Friends!

Oh is it ever August, and isn’t it lovely? Katie and I had another beautiful season on Orcas Island, inspiring our second “Front Porch House Show.” This one, you will notice, is filmed from the front porch of a rustic tent. We did not steal this tent–it is the one we get to live in during the summer while leading wilderness canoe trips across the Salish Sea! Our campers kept asking for more of this sweet lullaby from the Dixie Chicks that we love to play, so we thought we’d feature it in our next little video for all of you. Please enjoy!

We are feeling happy as August winds down, but also bittersweet, as Katie is soon leaving us for the Peace Corp (I know, right? What will we do without her?!?). So… in celebration of the good times, we are having one *final* (for now!) Portland show!

Happy Trails to Katie
Arbielle House Show
7pm ~ Friday, Sept 13th, 2013
5125 NE Davis St
Portland, OR
(503) 319-0124

Hope you can make it if you are in the area, and if not, we’ll be thinking of you!

About arbielle

“Arbielle” is a Portland indie-folk band featuring plucky songwriter-piano-player, Arbielle, a musician with wide eyes, a beautiful voice, and plenty of stories to share. Their songs range from goofy to passionate to heart-rending, reflecting the wild beauty and playfulness of Arbielle’s pacific northwest hippie upbringing, as well as the faith she has grown into. Arbielle’s mama taught her to sing rounds when she was two-years-old, and she never stopped singing since. As a 14-year-old she began composing with Portland’s “Young Composer’s Project,” hosted by Fear No Music, and at 18 she began a journey of singing her own songs from Walla Walla, Washington, to Brooklyn, New York. Now she has returned to her home state of Oregon, and dug in as a recording and touring musician living in Portland. In the winter of 2012 she gathered a talented team of musician friends to collaborate on a full-length album recorded at Echo Ridge Music, in Sisters, OR, and this year signed onto Headphone Records of Electronic Boy Productions, who released her premier full-length album this December. "Roots Grow Deep" is a sweet chronicle of growing pains, bicycles, broken families, funny coincidence, friendships, and coming home.  Audiences from Orcas Island to San Francisco have come away from her shows admiring her honesty, wondering at her unique perspective, and humming her beautiful tunes.  As an artist, she lifts up a universal human experience: what it is like to be Arbielle.  Even if you are not a small person living a big life, a teacher and a farmer, a sister and a daughter, a lover of Oregon and every person you’ve known, you will know exactly what she means.

    Teehee– Rachel, I’m visibly asleep for half of this front porch video! Just living up to the “Dormouse” nickname I guess. 😀

    Also… I will miss this big time.

      Haha! Soooooo awesome!

      And you are missed terribly already. It’s been such a beautiful chapter, Katie! I don’t think we’re done playing music together, yet, though…
