John Stowell Jazz Concert

For over a decade the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum has welcomed renowned musicians from all over the United States. The series kicks-off each January and continues through May, and sometimes even June: from Jazz to toe-tapping Celtic music and everything in between. The series ends on June 9 with world-renowned jazz guitarist John Stowell.

This isn’t Stowell’s first performance at the museum. He has become a local favorite. A constant traveler, Stowell was the first American Jazz performer to appear in Russia after the fall of the Iron Curtain and he continued to sell out performances there for two decades after.

Stowell teaches internationally. He has been an Artist-In-Residence at schools in Germany, Indonesia, Argentina, the United States and Canada. He served as assistant director and performer at Oregon Public Broadcasting’s PDX Jazz Summit in 1991, and since 1995 has been a contributing columnist for a number of magazines, including Down Beat, Guitar Player, Canadian Musician, Soundcheck (Germany), and Guitar Club (Italy).

Stowell's Through the Listening Glass with David Friesen was designated one of the "Ten Best Jazz Albums of the Decade" by the Los Angeles Examiner, and he was chosen as a "Talent Deserving Wider Recognition" by Downbeat’s International Critic’s Poll in 1978 and 1979. He has appeared on BET's Jazz Discovery and Guitar Series television shows.

“More guitarists would play like John Stowell if they knew how.” Herb Ellis

Seating for this concert is limited. Tickets for the Stowell concert are just $10 with the proceeds benefiting the Museum’s seasonal exhibits, and free lecture series. Cost of the ticket include tasty treats and donated libations. Music starts at 7:00 p.m. and the doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased over the phone (503-436-9301), at the Museum, or through the online gift shop.
