Matt Andersen

Matt Andersen

When Matt Andersen steps on stage, he brings a lifetime of music to every note he plays. His latest album, The Big Bottle of Joy, is all about hard-won celebration; a dozen songs infused with raw blues-rock, rollicking Americana, thoughtful folk, and ecstatic gospel. Andersen's stage presence is informed by decades of cutting his teeth in dusty clubs, dim-lit bars, and grand theatres all over the world, delivering soulful performances that run the gamut from intimate to wall-shaking. In the studio, he's always brought the same attention to detail and commitment to craft as he has to his live show, and the result-a multi-faceted and poignant body of work-has led him to amass over 23 million streams on Spotify and 26 million views on YouTube. In addition to headlining major festivals, clubs and theatres throughout North America, Europe and Australia, he has shared the stage and toured with Marcus King, Beth Hart, Marty Stuart, Greg Allman, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Randy Bachman, Jonny Lang, Serena Ryder, and more. Andersen nabbed the 2013 and 2016 European Blues Awards for Best Solo/Acoustic Act, was the first ever Canadian to take home top honours in the solo category at the 2010 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, won the CIMA Road Gold award in 2015, and has won multiple Maple Blues Awards.








Adam Baldwin

Adam Baldwin

Singer-songwriter Adam Baldwin has been a mainstay of the Atlantic Canada music
scene for over a decade. With his sophomore full-length, Concertos & Serenades,
Adam Baldwin - born and raised "inside these imaginary lines" that denote Nova Scotia
- offers an east coast testimony that challenges the typical tourism marketing gloss.
Through eight masterful yarns, the songwriter bears witness and pays tribute to a
tradition of desperation: sinners and losers, perpetual failures, and down-and-out
phantoms that haunt his home's coastlines and back roads - without a passing
judgement. Some of the tales happened, some didn't, and most walk a tightrope
between truth and fiction.

Starting as a member of rock combo Gloryhound before joining Matt Mays & El
Torpedo in 2009, Baldwin's own music has continued to evolve since his award winning
self-titled solo debut EP in 2013. In 2016 Baldwin released his first full length album No
Telling When (Precisely Nineteen Eight-Five) featuring the singles "Daylight" and
"Anytime". In 2019 he released the follow up No Rest for the Wicked, including
"Salvation" and "Dark Beside the Dawn".

In March 2020, with in person performances impossible due to COVID-19, Baldwin
launched his Cross-Country Chin Up concert series, almost every Friday evening on
YouTube. In addition to making this weekly opportunity to connect virtually with fans, he
also raised funds for the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia, Red Cross Stronger
Together Nova Scotia Fund, RCMP Fallen Officer Fund, and the Black Cultural Society
for Nova Scotia. The online concert series also produced two digital EPs: Chin Up
Sessions (originals) and Songs for the Parlour (covers).


About Mission Theater

Experience a slice of Portland history. What is now known simply as “the Mission” was originally home to the Swedish Mission Covenant congregation in the early 20th century, and despite its staid, buttoned up appearance, this place now hosts live music, video dance nights and special events on select nights each month. 


The location that serves as one of McMenamins favorite neighborhood theater pubs was the locus of great spiritual zeal beginning in the 1890s. That's when the Swedish Evangelical Mission established its church here....

From a church to a theater-pub to event space, the Mission's history ain't exactly saintly. Click here for more info!
