By TOM D'ANTONI // She'll be part of the band at this year's Mysti Krewe of Nimbus Mardi Gras Ball on Saturday, 2/6
We’ve got a percussionist and a poet in the coffeeshop this week…all in the person of Heidi Shuler.
The coffeeshop is World Cup Coffee and Tea at NW 18th and Glisan in Portland...and we'rewell into our second year of Coffeeshop Conversations.
I met Heidi at the very first Mysti Krewe of Nimbus’ Mardi Gras Ball. She was the percussionist in Steve Kerin’s band. The 2016 Ball at the Wonder Ballroom on Saturday, February 6 is the 6th annual. OMN is a media sponsor again this year.
She was a founding member of the Krewe.
She’s more than an multi-percussionist. She’s also a poet and I’m going to ask her to read a couple for us.
Next week, former Oregonian film critic and nowadays, famed author Shawn Levy. His exhaustive biography of Robert DiNiro was a best seller last year.
Now, let’s talk with Heidi.
