DELAKE SCHOOL ALUMNUS PETE OLSON RETURNS TO PLAY THE LINCOLN CITY CULTURAL CENTER
Get set for an evening of great songs well-sung, musical lore, obscure humor, romance, storytelling, dropping of famous names, and plain old good feelings, with singer-songwriter and Lincoln City native son Pete Olson. Olson actually attended Delake Elementary School, now home to the LCCC, and is looking forward to playing in his old gymnasium on Wednesday, Sept. 2. Showtime is 7 pm.
A singer, picker, and writer of sweet, often hopeful, sometimes sad, always poetic songs, Olson’s strong, honest voice and fluid guitar style are known for their audience-moving qualities. Olson has played on street corners and in coffee houses, roadhouses, churches, living rooms, and concert halls across America and around the world – and shared the spotlight and traded licks with musical greats like Country Joe McDonald, Barry & Holly Tashian, Jimmy Ibbotson of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, The Rowan Brothers, and many others.
Drawing from the diverse and rich traditions of American popular music, his performances swing from country to folk to pop standards to rock; from his own original ballads and love songs to rhythm and blues, all delivered in Olson’s straightforward, easy way.
Olson grew up in Lincoln City but now lives in California, and he invites all his friends to come out for the evening.
