By TOM D'ANTONI // Meet new Artichoke Music Executive Director at a critical time in the music center's existence.

While we await the upcoming Coffeeshop Conversations arrivals of China Forbes, Gordon Lee and Peter Dammann it is my pleasure to introduce you to Shelley Garrett, the new Executive Director of Artichoke Music.

She’s no stranger here, having booked the live music for the last couple of years, and also having been a fixture on the Blues scene in Oregon for a long time with her work with the Cascade Blues Association.

She has a hand in several major events here, a spring clearance sale in the store March 31st – April second. Their first ever fundraiser Telethon on April 15 and A week of events from June 4th through June 10th in the Cafe’ to celebrate their 50th anniversary, culminating in a concert on June 11th with Artichoke favorites from years past.

Let’s meet Shelley Garrett.
