Jan. 24 and 25: Austin Lindstrom, a country singer from Pendleton, Ore., first found his love of music when he discovered his parish’s piano. His young fingers, at first striking single notes, found chords. He recalled thinking to himself, “It all makes sense.” As a young man, Lindstrom trained as a cowboy in the “Rodeo Capital” of Oregon and gained a national bareback and bull riding ranking all while mastering the trumpet. When Austin is not honing his musical talents, he is working as a journeyman carpenter.
On Jan. 31 and February 1: Briana Renea, a sophisticated, yet fiery, redhead has collaborated with Nashville writers and skilled producers to produce three albums. She comes to Florence from Canby, Ore. Renea’s musical style was greatly influenced by her childhood growing up on ‘80s rock and ‘90s country. She blends the two genres in her own musical compositions and live performances. Since launching her touring career in 2013, Briana has become a must-see, fan favorite at fairs, festivals and venues throughout the Northwest. You cannot miss Renea’s high energy when she performs. When she’s not playing music, she shows horses in the Western States Stock Horse Association, swing dances and hangs out with friends and family.
