Since its founding in 2011, Portland’s Mama Bird Recording Co. has maintained a small but impressive roster of mostly local artists, and also served as a launchpad for internationally recognized acts like Saintseneca, Courtney Marie Andrews, and Haley Heynderickx. Tonight, on the eve of the winter solstice, Mama Bird is hosting its second annual Winter Wassail, with performances from most of the label’s current artists, including folk balladeers Barna Howard and Vikesh Kapoor, singer/songwriter Faustina Masigat, country troubadours Matt Dorrien and Taylor Kingman, folk-rock minstrel Nick Delffs, rowdy country outfit Denver, and more. There will also be DJs, raffle prizes, and, of course, plenty of warm drinks to help ease the transition into another long and discontented winter.
