Enjoy an evening of original music at the Sisters Public Library on October 2 at 6:00 pm when Brad Tisdel and students of the American Project take the stage for a free performance. This program is sponsored in part by the Friends of the Sisters Library.
Local musician Tisdel has worked for the past eight years as the co-founder and
creator of the Americana Project, an organization that teaches guitar playing, song writing and American Roots Music to young people. The Americana Project is currently in five schools, four Central Oregon high schools and one in Lincoln City. During the performance students and Tisdel will be performing original tunes.
Tisdel has also served as the Artistic Director of the Sisters Folk Festival for the past four years, and last spring release a new CD titled, On Your Way, which contains 11 new songs that chronicle his travels in Nepal, hurricane-ravaged New Orleans, and the birth of his son.
