Book Trailer Release You’ve seen a trailer for a movie, but have you seen one for a book? This month, Portland-area author Adam Copeland will release the trailer for his first novel, Echoes of Avalon. The nature of this trailer is the same as Author Adam Copeland a movie, the aim is to showcase the content, previewing what is in store for the reader. With Copeland’s book, which was first published in 2009, readers will preview elements of a fairy tale, historical fiction, and a classic love story wrapped into one. In addition to releasing the trailer this month, Copeland will make an appearance in Downtown Hillsboro at Jacobsen’s Books & More on Main Street from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday July 14 during the Hillsboro Farmers Market. Jacobsen’s hosts local authors every Saturday through September. The trailer for Echoes from Avalon is available online at www.adamcopelandsite.com
Annual 4th Parade in Hillsboro It’s been a tradition in Hillsboro as long as some can remember. The annual Fourth of July parade draws more than 10,000 parade-goers each year and boasts a line-up of more than 100 entrants ranging from boy scouts to local businesses. For this year, the parade’s Grand Marshal is Washington County Sheriff Pat Garrett. The festivities start at 10 a.m., but plan to get there early if you want to stake out a good spot. The parade lines up to go on Grant Street and then works its way east down Main Street for the crowds. This year the theme is “something old, something new, we stand to honor the red, white and blue.” For more information about the parade, visit www.hillsbororotary.org

In the thick of Sherwood city lives a merry band of men and women who once a year host a festival for all things Robin Hood. With a parade, theatrical performance, Maid Marion court, archery competition, and castle-building contest, the annual festival channels medieval times. Live musical performances from local bands, including Hit Machine, are also scheduled for the main stage. This year the festival starts at 5 p.m. on July 20 with a special theatrical performance from the Royal Academy at Stella Olsen Park at 6:30 p.m. that day. The event continues on July 21 with a parade at 10 a.m. and activities running throughout the day. The archery contest runs 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the Sherwood Elks Lodge.

Tour de Parks Returns Photography Club Forming in Orenco Photography is an art and a science. Like many other forms of art, there is a creative license in photography, but there is also a lot of required technical skill and knowledge. For photographers both amateur and experienced, a new club has formed in the Hillsboro area. New members are welcome and the group has a show planned for August - showcasing photographs at the Orenco Starbucks. The club - which meets monthly at Cornell Estates - has about eight core members who plan meetings to discuss technique, camera use, photo development, and image manipulation. The Orenco Photography Club meets at 7 p.m. on the fourth Thursday of each month. For more information about the club visit http://orencophotoclub.wix.com/home
Cycle through seven parks in seven cities, or bring the little ones for a 1.5 mile two-park loop. The 5th Annual Tour de Parks returns to the Westside this month, offering a variety of rides suitable for amateur and enthusiast cyclists. There’s something for everyone. Four different routes take riders through up to ten parks, some around Hillsboro and others across the entire Westside. The Le Grande Tour starts at 8 a.m. on Saturday July 21, leaving from 3rd Avenue and Lincoln Street in Downtown Hillsboro and traveling through 62 miles of back roads, hills, and vistas in bucolic Washington County. The cost for this ride is $35. For the three shorter routes, riders start at 1 p.m. from the same location. The cost is a suggested $5 donation that goes to support the Washington County Bicycle Transportation Coalition. Last year some 200 riders participated in Tour de Parks. The goal of the event is to promote fun and safe cycling for everyone. For the second year in a row, this event will partner with Celebrate Hillsboro!, an annual street fair in the downtown area. Potential Routes: Two parks (1.5 miles) Six parks (6.5 miles) Ten parks (13 miles) Le Grande Tour (62 miles)

Too young to drink, old enough to rock While other musicians were arriving at shows in funky gig vans, a young Ian Lindsay was getting a ride from his parents. Despite being under the legal drinking age, Lindsay could play shows where they served alcohol, though the law dictated he had to exit the stage and leave when done. Still too young to drink alcohol, Lindsay - 18 years old and hailing from Forest Grove - has played his style of blues guitar at bars all around the Metro area. This month he will play at 8:30 p.m. on July 28 at Primrose and Tumbleweeds in Downtown Hillsboro. Lindsay, who just graduated high school, plans to go to college in the fall at the University of Oregon where he wants to study political science and English.
Country music that means more Josh Smith has got the same outlook on life as some of the country greats. You know the guys for whom we coined all the good cliches like - rolls with the punches, still waters run deep, and live and let live. Smith is wise beyond his years, good humored, and sincere. You can hear that in the songs he writes, sings and plays on guitar. Check out Smith’s set starting at 9 p.m. on July 27 at Ballad Town Billiards in Forest Grove this month. Last year Smith self-released his first album entitled Honey Badger. Since then the guy who grew up calling Gaston home has been writing a lot of music, so much in fact he is ready to record another entirely original album. Smith, 30, who plays what some call “country music” considers himself to be more of a storyteller than a “phony cowboy.” Another popular category given to his music: folk.

Soulful songwriter sings to Hillsboro By Devan Bey Jean Mann is an artist. She feels the music she plays and the notes she sings. More than anything, the singer/songwriter deals with complex human emotion through her own experiences and hard-earned truths. The multi-talented Mann will bring a wide range of instruments as well as an accompanying violinist to Hillsboro at 7 p.m. on July 14th, 2012. Influence Music Hall welcomes her back by popular demand, and Mann is thrilled to perform in front of old and new friends. Tickets for the performance are a $15 suggested donation. At the core, Influence is an ideal performing space for Mann. This will be evident to audience members, as both the artist and venue are deeply committed to providing an intimate and innovative atmosphere. Influence Music Hall is supported by Tualatin Valley Artists, a nonprofit organization eager to unite the community through artistic performance. Mann's personality and music align perfectly with this goal. Sweet melodies accompanied by soothing guitar riffs and easily relatable lyrics define much of her work. Since 2000, Mann has released four albums, the most recent entitled Dream of Goats, in 2011. Mann has delivered consistently poignant tracks with soulful vocals and folky instrumentation. Mann's musical career began after the loss of her mother in 1999. Despite the fact that tragedy inspired Mann to pursue her passion for performing, the results are dozens of songs either inspired by happiness, or those aspiring to bring happiness. The Seattle-based musician has since embarked on tours spreading this message, and continues to emphasize the human connection with each song and performance. "That's an important thing to remember as a performer,” she said. “If a song is related to by one set of ears in the room, it's meaningful to me. It is sharing my art." A track on Mann's third studio album, entitled "Daisies and Fire" invokes universal feelings of overcoming struggle, and relates to her as an artist and a human being. Ultimately the songs Mann writes suggest that each of us remember the stressful times, learn from them, and maybe even write a heartfelt song or two. For more information about Influence Music Hall or to donate, visit www.tvartists.org For Mann's tour dates, biography, and music, visit www.jeanmann.net

Tribute Band honors more than a generation of music They could have been any teenagers anywhere in the United States. It was the 1942. Big band music was playing. People were swing dancing. But there were a few differences between these teens and others across the country. These teens were Japanese Americans, and these teens were living behind barbed wire in bad conditions. Like other Japanese Americans during that time, they along with their families were being held at internment camps, the result of Executive Order 9066 issued by President Franklin D. Roosevelt calling for people of Japanese descent living in America to be detained after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, even if they were citizens. The interned families were eventually released two years later and allowed to return to what was left of their lives outside the camp. It’s been 70 years since then. The families and those teens went on their way, but they would never forget. Now their descendants and their friends remember too. The Minidoka Swing Band is a tribute to the Japanese Americans who were interned during WWII, but also a tribute to the music of the time. This month, the Minidoka Swing Band - named for a relocation center in Idaho where Japanese Americans were detained - will be playing on the Westside at Showtime at Shute. Catch the band at 7 p.m. on July 19 at Shute Park. The concert is free.

Ten Tiny Dances The performers are unique and so is the setting - the Streets of Beaverton Story by Cindy Dauer The dances may be tiny, but the significance isn’t. On July 14, Ten Tiny Dances - a performance series set on a four foot-by-four foot stage - will return to Downtown Beaverton, bringing with it a culturally diverse can-can of traditional and modern dance. In all, more than ten different dances will be performed on five tiny stages hidden around Beaverton’s old town during the Saturday Farmers Market. The dances - which generally range from about five to eight minutes long - will happen every half-hour starting at 10 a.m. with the last performance at 12:30 p.m. Audience members follow a printed map to move from stage to stage - with one stage found in the grassy field of a vacant lot, another hidden in a historic alley just blocks away. Along with the locations, each of the dances will be quite unique - showcasing a wide variety of dance styles from different times, places, and cultures. Above: Singamukhi Photo by: Andre Elbing
Three of the dances planned are from the modern genre, including “Pockets” which will be performed by classically trained dancer Jessica Hightower. This dance, Hightower explains, explores feelings and ideas related to nostalgia. Hightower’s dance is not set to music. It’s done in silence and simple costume. Dancing in a different genre, Native American performers from Northstar Dance Company will perform four traditional dances including a healing jingle dance from the Oregon coast, a grass dance from the Southwest plains, a hoop dance performed by a member of the Burns Paiute tribe, and a women’s fancy dance from a member of the Warm Springs tribe. Northstar dancers will move to a live drum beat and amplified pow wow music, wearing traditional native outfits and robes. Other performers will showcase traditional dance from around the world with dancers from India, Nepal, Ghana, and Mexico in the program. For people on the Westside, Ten Tiny Dances presents a unique platform to see a wide variety of dance sampled from around the world but found locally in nearby communities. “It’s a sensational opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate the diversity that makes Beaverton so special,” Beaverton Mayor Denny Doyle said. This is the fourth year that Ten Tiny Dances has come to Beaverton, but the performance concept has been around since 2002. Dancer, choreographer and Portland Public School teacher Mike Barber started Ten Tiny Dances with the idea of making dance more accessible in dense urban settings where space is Pictured left: Matt Clements of the Burns Paiute Tribe does a grass dance.

... continued from last page limited and quarters are tight. Barber built a tiny elevated stage and produced the first show at Crush Bar in Downtown Portland in 2002. Since then, the group has orchestrated some 27 installations of Ten Tiny Dances in Oregon and around the West Coast. The performance in Beaverton this year being the 28th. Dozens of dancers and choreographers from around the Metro area have participated in Ten Tiny Dances. It not only gives dancers a chance to bring their art to a new audience, it also challenges them to adapt their expression to the confines of a 16 square foot stage. “It restricts you in a good way,” said modern dancer Hightower. She noted that the size of the stage makes every little movement count. Mary Hager of Northstar explains that the small, elevated stage actually enhances the audience experience as onlookers get a more intimate view of motion and footwork. From the audience, don’t be surprised to see more than one dancer performing at a time. Some groups perform as duos and others have packed as many as 12 dancers on the little stage at a time. Whatever type of dance, setting, or permutation of performers, it is sure to be a memorable event worth checking out.

Every winery has to have a competitive edge, something that differentiates one from another and draws visitors to their tasting room. For some it’s an award winning wine, others a unique grape. Some choose to have an opulent tasting room and grounds. For others still, there may be a famous winery dog (like our Ghost) or cat. For Plum Hill Vineyards, our latest secret weapon is 5 year old Tyler Harlow. Master Tyler is the son of the owner of the prestigious Harlow Hill Farms Vineyards. Tyler, at 5 years old, knows more about vineyards than most college graduates in the field. One day as we were walking through the vineyard he proposed trapping gophers for me. Based on my personal failed attempts at rodent elimination, I had nothing to lose and it might even be quite humorous. I’ve watched “Caddy Shack’ a number of times and had this vision of Tyler facing off with the many gophers in our vineyard. It may even turn into our latest improv comedy routine. Past experience included a gopher blaster who charged $500, made a mess of the fields and failed to eliminate all the gophers. The pyrotechnics were good, but the objective was not achieved. Tyler said he’d trap them for free but I said I’d pay him and buy him traps. After all, how many gophers could a 5 year old trap? At that, Tyler’s next suggestion of $80 a gopher sounded extravagant. Using my powerful negotiation skills, I managed to get Tyler to agree to $10 for each gopher, seriously doubting that he would be breaking the bank. He’s not even 3 foot tall. I was totally wrong; he’s some kind of gopher whisperer or should I say gopher reaper. At the time of this writing, he has trapped 99 gophers and 3 moles. On most days, he gets two gophers and is rarely skunked. Needless to say, his college fund has grown significantly. So, when you come to our tasting room, don’t be shocked if a very short, energetic five year old comes running through the door with gophers hanging from his traps. The tasting room staff, skittish of rodents in any condition, controls the dead gopher demonstrations as much as possible; but try not to gasp when Tyler regales you with stories of “his hunt” and displays his catch.
Five-year-old Tyler the gopher hunter is a natural.
