Portland Cello Project

Of all the musicians the Portland Cello Project has collaborated with--Horse Feathers, Thao with the Get Down Stay Down, the Dandy Warhols--there's no smarter choice than Shenandoah Davis. Davis is a classically trained opera singer and pianist; the Cello Project is a collective of ultra-skilled cellists that perform everything from Bach to Britney Spears. Davis's ragtime-influenced songs and warbling voice are carefully arranged and near-perfectly layered. A dozen cellists backing her up with their charming arrangements couldn't be a better complement. This is a show where the cellos and musicians seamlessly blend together into one musical unit - the kind of show the Cello Project was designed to play. With Mighty Tiger, Shenandoah Davis.
