It’s the 3rd Tuesday of the month, which means another awesome performance from the Woods Stage in 2016! Patrick Watson delivers a heart-stirring rendition of “Lighthouse” in this month’s episode from the Woods Series presented by opbmusic.org and NPR Music. Special thanks to Klean Kanteen for their generous support of the Woods Series!
Patrick Watson’s Friday night set at Pickathon 2016 was a hell of thing to behold. There, on the intimate Woods Stage, the Canadian singer turned in a gripping performance replete with a kaleidoscope of oddball musical arrangements that played out in almost cinematic fashion. There were unexpected twists and turns, but, like any good film, Watson saved the best scene for last.
Sitting in front of an upright piano with its guts exposed, he closed out the show with this absolutely haunting rendition of “Lighthouse,” a song that originally appeared on his 2012 release, “Adventures in Your Own Backyard.”
Every month this year, opbmusic and NPR Music will present another episode from the Pickathon Woods Stage. Look for the next premiere in late July.
The annual Pickathon Festival returns Aug. 3-6 at Pendarvis Farm just outside Portland, Oregon, with a lineup that features performances from Drive-by Truckers, Dinosaur Jr, Deer Tick, Big Thief, and Charles Bradley.
The Pickathon Woods Series was made possible by support from Klean Kanteen.
