Small Souls, Ezza Rose, Shoeshine Blue 

When: Sat., Jan. 26, 9 p.m. 2013
The self-titled album of Portland folkers Small Souls is decorated with the usual ornamentation: plucked acoustic guitars, keening saw, clucking banjo, high lonesome pedal steel. The unusual thing is that Bryan Daste, one of the two members anchoring the band, is playing all of these; the multi-instrumentalist has transformed the lean, appealing songs of bandmate and songwriter Brian Rozendal into elegant, near-symphonic folk. Of course, a bevy of guests—including vocalist Ezza Rose and Radiation City's Patti King on violin—add to the sumptuous surroundings as well, making Small Souls not just the calling card of a fine local band, but also a snapshot of the fertile musical community that birthed it.
