Portland songwriter Emilia Dahlin celebrates her 5th album with two shows!

A decade in the making, “…Green Things To Grow” (her 5th album and first live publication) is an experiment in building community for singer-songwriter, Emilia Dahlin. To produce the album, Dahlin transformed an industrial warehouse on Portland’s Fore River waterfront into a pop-up venue for one evening. Handcrafted stages and walls embraced listeners sitting at long, candle-lit tables and the audience shared a hot, middle-eastern meal together before the show. Listeners and musicians made music as a whole. The album captures the vital connected feel of this special night.

For the first time, long-time band-mates Adam Frederick (bass), Seth Kearns (drums), and Max Cantlin (guitar) were joined by Portland talents Kate Beever (vibes/percussion) and Sorcha Cribben-Merril (harmonies and guitar) to make ethereal driving rhythms with a hint of latin influence.

“…Green Things To Grow” is a vow and creative reclamation project after Emilia’s transition from touring musician to mother and, now, artist-mother. For this release, the band offers a family-friendly early show as prelude to the evening performance. Letterpress prints of the album artwork feature local artist and printmaker, Devon Kelley-Yurdin.


Due to a performer’s possible Covid-19 exposure and rain in the forecast, the status of the July 25th Steve Gunn and William Tyler show at Greenwood Garden is unclear. We will update all ticket holders and the public on Saturday, July 24th with more information.
