Finger style instrumentalist and singer/songwriter Kit Garoutte has been performing as a solo artist for, well, long enough to have aged like a fine wine, or a fine guitar. While his playing is influenced most recently by finger style and new acoustic guitarists such as Michael Hedges, Andy McKee, and Tommy Emmanuel, over the years his musical influences have ranged from Paul Simon, Crosby, Stills and Nash, and James Taylor to Jim Hall, Wes Montgomery, Earl Klugh and George Benson to Andres Segovia and Christopher Parkening.
Youll hear these and many more influences flowing out in his masterful playing style that expresses a natural and irresistible soulfulness.

-August 3rd, 2013 - 6:00 - 9:00
Jim plays original compositions as well as a sprinkling of re-arrangements of unusual covers.
The style is a bit difficult to characterize but has been described as a mixture of folk, rock, jazz with a bit of Latin and Reggae mixed in.
Some describe it best as ?"Modern Folk", though Jim thinks of it as New Eclectic or Evolving Folk.
Jim MacMillan, Ryan McAlexander and Randy Bell announce the release of their new CD, Celilo, recorded live in February, 2013 at Big River Studios in Bingen, Washington with recording and mixing by Rick Hullet and Rod Krehbiel. The title song of the CD describes the history and disappearance of Celilo Falls, one of the Pacific Northwest's greatest natural wonders. The rest of the CD set includes an eclectic collection of sometimes political and inspirational evolving folk songs, composed by Jim MacMillan. There will be a release event for this CD on Saturday, May 25th from 7-10 PM at the Naked Winery Tasting Room in Hood River, Oregon.
Celilo will also be available soon on ITunes and CD Baby.
