James Low

LONG BEACH — Alt-Country Songwriter James Low returns to the Peninsula Performing Arts Center at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 22.

Admission is $15 at the door or online at bit.ly/2Xlhj4i or call Bill at 360-901-0962.

The arts center is located at 504 Pacific Ave. N.

Low started out in a one-stop-light town in Eastern Oregon that had a single AM radio station that went off the air every night at 6 p.m.

Coming from a family steeped in music he followed his father’s lead and started writing songs.

After finishing school he escaped to New York where he came under the sway of classic blues and country musicians like Emmy Lou Harris.

His albums range from the sparse country folk of Mexiquita (2000) to the more wide-ranging albums Blackheart (2002) and The Blackguard’s Waltz (2008), establishing a solid pedigree as a writer. James’ career flourished in the manner of a well-kept secret.

In 2012 “Whiskey Farmer” appeared on several American radio charts and the Euro Americana chart and received four-star reviews.

Wine, beer and other refreshments are available for purchase.

Concerts benefit the Long Beach Peninsula Acoustic Music Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization.
