Taking the stage this month is Redmond-based singer/songwriter Allan Byer. Byer started writing songs and singing over 27 years ago in Tillamook when he informally managed two garage bands. During the past 10 years he’s performed all over Central Oregon with the Allan Byer Trio or Duo and as a solo artist. Bend’s Source entertainment magazine has called his music “an eclectic mix of rootsy instrumentation and harmonies.” Byer calls his music “contemporary folk.” He plays acoustic guitar and harmonica as well as singing and writing the songs. Byer also claims to be the "world's second best” musical spoon player behind only his master, Seattle's Artis the Spoonman. Says Byer, “It was how I got into music, playing spoons at the band’s practice sessions. Soon I wanted to play songs by my heroes Jackson Browne and Van Morrison, so I picked up a guitar.”
