Long-time KRVM listeners know how much the station loves the blues. For blues aficionados, there’s excitement in the air as guitar phenomenon Ty Curtis performs this weekend in Albany at the Northwest Art & Air Festival.

Freelance writer and volunteer blogger Cynthia Orlando writes about local music, music that KRVM listeners may also want to listen to.
Cynthia grew up in southern California where both her parents were musicians. While attending forestry school in northern California's Humboldt County she began reviewing music for entertainment publication "Northcoast View," and began writing again in 2009 for Portland's KINK-FM and announcer Dave Scott's blog.
She's formerly written for Music Under Fire, an Indie music website, and has her own music blog. In addition to her writing for KRVM she also writes for another non-profit station, Portland Radio Project in Portland.
Besides music, Cynthia's other passions include urban forestry, REIKI and travel - especially in Europe. She has a special fondness for bands from the U.K. and the Pacific Northwest; her favorite travel fantasy is getting to the Glastonbury Festival to cover the many outstanding artists there.

Praiseworthy Kaleo performs at Eugene’s HiFi Music Hall this coming Friday, August 12. Kaleo boasts a sumptuous, sometimes thunderous blend of rock, blues and folk you won’t want to miss. Originally from Iceland, the band continues to grow their U.S. following via their new home base of Austin.
