Pete Krebs Trio at the 'stacks'
Music in the Stacks returns to the Canby Public Library Saturday, April 12, at 2:30 p.m. with a Portland music icon, the Pete Krebs Trio.
The Pete Krebs Trio Pete Krebs, Brent Martens and Jen Bernard will take listeners back in time to a slower and sweeter era. Enjoy some early day Jazz, old swing standards, American songbook, western swing, a little old-school honky-tonk and even some bossa nova.
Krebs has been a fixture on the northwest music scene for close to two decades and has appeared nationally and internationally with artists as diverse as Elliott Smith, Pearl Jam, Django, Nirvana, The Holy Modal Rounders, Robin Nolan and Wilco, and has been featured in publications ranging from Spin and Rolling Stone to the New York Times and N.E. Portland's own Cully Neighborhood Newsletter.
An in-demand private music teacher, he performs regularly with a variety of ensembles and is the swing-jazz guitarist and vocalist for The Stolen Sweets. This event will also honor library volunteers, library board and foundation members and Friends of the Library. Light refreshments will be served.
Music in the Stacks is funded by the Friends of the Library. For more information, check the website at www.canbylibrary.org or call 503-266-3394.
