Musicians Rising Up documentary and show at Clinton Theater Saturday, September 15

See the Musicians Rising Up doc and watch live performances from folks in it at the Clinton. On this post, revisit the OMN Coffeeshop Conversation with founders Robert Parrish and Teri Briggs

When we talked with Robert Parrish and Teri Briggs about Musicians Rising Up for one of our Coffeeshop Conversations podcasts, they were in the planning stages for the premiere of their documentary and just in the last stages of production.

Now it's done and at the Clinton St. Theater on Saturday, September 15, you can see it and also enjoy live performances by some of the folks in it.

Here's the episode:

Since Musicians Rising Up began following the 2017 inauguration, over 70 interviews and performances have been cataloged representing an historical time for our country. Along with continuing the series until there’s a more stable and compassionate President, we have created a 60-minute documentary, featuring interviews and performances, mostly from the first year of the series. The film, PDX MUSICIANS RISING UP, will be shown to the public for the first time at Clinton Street Theater on Saturday, September 15, 2018. This all-ages event will not only be a film screening but some of the musicians featured in this series will perform short acoustic sets. We will have speakers, other music videos, and raffle.
