A Tribute to Teisha Helgerson


Kruger's Farm (map) Northwest
Thu., Aug. 23, 6:30 p.m. 2012 21+

$10 per car

Teisha Helgerson, the singer for Amelia, died last year from chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Her friends took her unfinished recordings and made Carry On, an album that intermingles Helgerson's sketches and lyrics with fleshed-out songs from all the contributors. It was a tricky operation, but the assorted Portland musicians on Carry On have not only made a tasteful, moving tribute to Helgerson, they've made a unified album that finds the joy in Helgerson's life story rather than getting bogged down in her illness and too-soon death. Tonight's release show benefits the Teisha's Place and Jeremy Wilson Foundation charities. Performers will include Jim Brunberg, Michael Jodell, Matt Brown, James Low, Mark Orton, Wendy Pate, Aaron Walker, Miss Tulie, Susannah Weaver, Scott Weddle, Rachel Taylor Brown, and Stephanie Schneiderman. Poet Scott Poole, and dancer Margarita Barragan will also be there, with Live Wire!'s Courtenay Hameister hosting. NED LANNAMANN
