September 16: Jim Page
Seattle's Jim Page takes the stage September 16 for the first Portland FolkMusic Society concert of the 2016-2017 season.
Utah Phillips said, “If you're ever going to get the message, this is the messenger to get it from.”
Jim first brought his message to the folk clubs of the 60s. Now a 21st century activist, he has appeared nationwide, including rallies for Bernie Sanders. His health care manifesto, “Pretty Simple,” and other timely messages speak to the political and social issues of the world around him.
Jim's songs have been covered by The Doobie Brothers, Christy Moore, The Moving Hearts, Dick Gaughan, Roy Bailey, David Soul, Leftover Salmon, and Michael Hedges. He has received awards from Artist Trust and Jack Straw Productions. His music has been included on many compilations, including the Grammy Nominated “Best Of Broadside.” A long time busker, Jim founded Seattle's first street performer union. In a season of decision-making, the Portland FolkMusic Society welcomes Jim's voice. Jim will be interviewe on KBOO's “Movin' On;” at noon on the day of the concert.
