  • Celebrate Main Street: Ridgefield

    05/02/2019

    115 N Main Ave, Ridgefield, WA 98642, USA

    As part of Historic Preservation Month, Clark County Historical Museum is taking its First Thursday Speaker Series to Ridgefield’s Old Liberty Theater on Thursday, May 2, for “Celebrate Main Street: Ridgefield.” This free event is part of the museum’s new initiative to celebrate the local businesses, architecture, and history along Clark County’s Main Streets. The event begins at 7 p.m.

    Originally called Union Ridge due to the large number of Union soldiers who settled in the area after the Civil War, the town formally came into being at a special election held in 1909.

    In that same year, the established businesses, as advertised in the “Ridgefield Reflector,” were two general merchandise stores, a department store, two lumber mills, a water well contractor and driller, two contractors and builders, a boat builder, meat market, hotel, livery and draying, boot and shoemaker, creamery, barber shop, blacksmith, realtor, and a weaver.

    Today, the businesses in historic Downtown Ridgefield serve the community in a different way, but retain the spirit of these early days in 1909.

    Through the support of the Clark County Historic Preservation Commission, the CCHM is providing this talk at no charge to the public. This presentation is possible through partnerships with North Clark Historical Museum, La Center Historical Museum, the Ridgefield Main Street Program, and the Clark County Historical Museum.

    For more information, please contact the CCHM at 360-993-5679 or by email at events@cchmuseum.org.

    ABOUT Terry Robb
    Terry Robb is praised by Rolling Stone, Vintage Guitar, Down Beat, Acoustic Guitar, Living Blues, Guitar Player, Blues Blast, Guitar World, Blues Matters, Blues Revue, Oprah’s O Magazine and countless more esteemed journals, placing him among the top acoustic blues guitarists of our time. His signature fingerpicking style landed him in the Oregon Music Hall of Fame and the Cascade Blues Association Hall of Fame, and earned him international acclaim from music critics, peers and fans.
    Robb is touring in support of his latest album Confessin’ My Dues. He draws on his deep knowledge of Delta blues, ragtime and swing in 13 original compositions ranging from blistering instrumental blues and stunning ragtime fingerpicking to soulful singing backed by a powerhouse rhythm section. From country blues to Coltrane, ragtime to Hendrix, Americana to American Primitivism, Confessin’ My Dues will captivate listeners with its melodic and rhythmic invention and musical virtuosity.

    “Every release that Terry Robb puts out is a cause to celebrate,” says Greg Johnson, president, Cascade Blues Association. “There are not many guitarists in the blues or any genre that you can come by that are as detailed and clever with their creativity. Confessin’ My Dues is yet another example of Terry Robb doing what he does best – leaving us with a sense of awe and joy with every note he plays. It’s a winning formula that continues to lead the pack.”

    “Exquisite musicality…unquestionably, Robb ranks right up there with the heavy hitters, a player of dazzling skill and technique…finger gawkers flood to his shows,” says Frank Matheis of Living Blues Magazine. “It’s the rare guitarist who can whip off a killer 12-bar blues solo, then turn around fingerpick Travis-style with speed and subtlety,” mused Ian Zack of Acoustic Guitar Magazine. And Dan Forte of Vintage Guitar Magazine hailed him as “one of the best players, on acoustic and electric, embracing a range of blues styles and then some.”

    With more than 15 releases under his name, Robb’s award-winning, blues chart-topping discography features collaborations with steel-string guitar icon John Fahey, Maria Muldaur, Eddy Clearwater, Ike Willis and Curtis Salgado. He has toured nationally with Buddy Guy, Steve Miller and John Fahey, shared the stage with B.B. King, Robin Trower, Albert Lee, Joe Cocker, Bo Diddley, David Crosby, George Thorogood, Leo Kottke, Johnny Winter and many more all-stars. He has performed as a solo artist at festivals and concert halls across the United States, Canada and Europe, and appeared as a guest of “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” the NBA Trail Blazers and the Oregon Symphony. As a sought-after educator, he has given fingerstyle blues and slide guitar workshops at festivals, universities and arts organizations across the United States and Canada.

    An acclaimed record producer, arranger and session guitarist, his work is featured in Hollywood films, documentaries, TV programs and biographies, such as “Game of Thrones,” “The Horse Whisperer,” “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot,” and Dance of Death: The Life of John Fahey, American Guitarist. He produced Alice Stuart’s album Can’t Find No Heaven, nominated for Grammy and Blues Music Awards, and John Fahey’s Let Go which received a four-star review by Rolling Stone. A member of the Cascade Blues Association Hall of Fame, Robb was honored the eponymous “Terry Robb” Acoustic Guitar Muddy Award after winning the prize for 19 consecutive years, and in 2017 he received the Lifetime Achievement Muddy Award.

    Terry Robb was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, raised in the United States and resides in Portland, Oregon.

Peterson raises the bar a few notches in both slack key and jazz with this bright and exceptional release”. He is also featured as a performer and arranger on the 2008 and 2009 Grammy Nominated recordings “Aumakua” and “Friends and Family of Hawaii” by Amy Hanaiali’i.

    He has traveled to Europe, Asia, Australia, and across the United Sates to perform at a variety of venues from Symphony Space in New York City to the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai, China. In addition to performing, he taught the guitar at the University of Hawaii for several years running the guitar program.

    This is a fun way you can support Camp Hope
    and the youth of our community!

    The annual auction is our largest fundraiser for the year; it not only helps sustain our programs, but also enables us to offer our camps at a low or no cost to those who need it. 60% of our campers come from low income homes.

    In just a couple of years the numbers of youth we have served has almost tripled! In addition to our programs, we serve over 20 other youth organizations in our community, including foster and at-risk youth.

    Together we can make a positive difference in the lives of our youth.
