For the 22nd consecutive year, members of the Rite of Spring are donating their time and talent in support of the IDEA Foundation, and they’ve invited talented Northwest musicians to join them as part of a Mini Folk Festival. The Festival provides music lovers a rare opportunity to hear some of the outstanding acoustic performers in the Pacific Northwest, while benefitting a great cause.
Rite of Spring
The Rite of Spring has been a mainstay of Northwest acoustic music for thirty-five years. Their wide variety of instrumentation and powerful vocal harmonies, along with a genuine enjoyment for their craft, has consistently attracted audiences of all ages. Terry Prohaska and Lynn Attwood, who grew up in rural Northeastern Oregon, have performed together for forty-five years. Michael Attwood, who hails from the London suburbs, began playing British rock and roll during the sixties while in his teens, but he's always had one or two ‘hollow' guitars in his lineup too. He has performed with Lynn and Terry since the late 1970's and is fluent in both acoustic and electric guitar styles.
