Sam Fowles (of the Parson Red Heads)

MARK STOCK
7 pm Sunday, Nov. 18., Sunday November 18 | Free. Sam Fowles performs nightly through Nov. 23.
 
[PARSON RED HEAD] As the lead guitarist of Portland vintage rock’n’rollers the Parson Red Heads, Sam Fowles doesn’t see a whole lot of spotlight. But that’s not to say the classic-rock-minded axeman is buried in the fray. Fowles’ old-school methodology provides an invaluable layer to his band, injecting a ’60s folk-rock feel à la John Phillips or Gram Parsons. An underrated songwriter himself, Fowles is no stranger to the frontman role. If his solo performance comes anywhere near the Parson Red Heads songs he penned—“I Was Only” and the Dr. Dog-sounding “Happy We Agree”—you’re in for a real treat. 



Where: Al's Den at the Crystal Hotel
