Wayne Harrel: Coffeeshop Conversations Mini-episode #6 - Making Musical Theater out of Paul deLay

By TOM D'ANTONI // Wayne wrote the book. Paul wrote the music. Keeping the spirit of Bubba alive in 2018!

Back in World Cup Coffee and Tea at NW 18th and Glisan for another OMN Coffeeshop Conversation Mini-episode.

With me today is Wayne Harrel who wrote the book of the musical theater production of Just This One, based on the life of the late Paul deLay, the beloved Bluesman from Portland.

The music and lyrics are all Big Paul’s. Performing are Portland Blues stars Lisa Mann, LaRhonda Steele and Ben Rice, among others.

You can see it Saturday and Sunday, June 27 and 28 at Michelle’s Piano Company.

We miss Paul deLay. I don’t think we should ever lose sight of the legacy of his greatness.

Let’s meet Wayne Harrel.
