Rich Layton: Coffeeshop Conversations #115

By SCOTT CUNNINGHAM // Rich Layton does more than just play the harmonica, he's out to swampify Portland with his Texas Gulf Coast sound.

We are where we usually are this week, World Cup Coffee & Tea at NW 18th and Glisan in Portland, but we've changed it up a bit. I'm sitting in for Tom D'Antoni, hosting our Coffeeshop Conversation this week for the very first time.

My guest is Rich Layton, one of the area's finest harmonica players and one stand-up cat if there ever was one. Take a listen as we trace his musical career, his influences, gear, and continuing efforts to swampify the Portland music scene.

He will be appearing with his band The Troublemakers on Friday, Sept. 1, at the Rock Creek Tavern.
