Kites and Crows

Sunday, November 14th
8pm No Cover
Fort George Brewery
1483 Duane St.-Astoria

Kites and Crows return to the Fort George Brewery and Public House on Sunday, November 14th at 8pm. Ashland, OR is home to the country’s largest repertory theatre, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Within the large company’s wealth of members, emerges an indie folk band called Kites & Crows. The name KITES & CROWS, actually, is inspired from the Oregon Shakepseare Festival’s 2008 production of Coriolanus, where the recently banished battle hero is hiding out “…under the canopy…in the city of kites and crows…” He was joined by multi – instrumentalist ( accordion, banjo, mandolin, lapsteel) Jesse Baldwin in July 2008. The two musicians met at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival where Mysha is a stagehand and Jesse is a lighting technician.

Kites and Crows toured the NW in the Fall of 2008 and upon returning to Ashland, they were joined by Bryan Helfrich ( from ONE HORSE SHY) on drums and Kabir Stanton on Bass. The troupe recently released a debut ep album called Passenger. With the image of a Columbia river sternwheeler on the cover, the songs display a sense of navigation, vintage images and a longing to be vividly sincere. Tour dates, music and more information can be found online at
