For well over a decade the Great Northwest Music Tour has blazed a fresh musical trail of talent to our historic properties. Having hosted such acts as the Avett Brothers, Greensky Bluegrass and Deer Tick, we’re now rolling out the names of our 2018 lineup at a break-neck pace. Keep an eye on this page and start saving dates … these Tours are famous for creating “I saw them when” moments!
The Tour runs monthly from March through November. There is no admission charge to the festivities, and our unique venues offer food, handcrafted beverages and a cozy place to bed down after the last note is played. Every show is an opportunity to visit our hotels and enjoy their offerings, anchored by music from some of the finest regional and national acts. Bring your friends and family and jam to a different artist every Tour!
We've run well over a hundred of these no-cover, all-ages Tours through our hotel properties... join us as we toast hundreds more to come.
MARCH 15 through 22
With generous helpings of soul, funk, hip-hop, R&B, jazz, gospel, and rock, Portland-based Dirty Revival’s big and gritty sound is fronted by the ever-soulful Sarah Clarke. "Someone once described us as Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Earth Wind and Fire, and Rose Royce all blended up as one," Clarke says, "I nearly fainted. What a massive compliment." The horn-driven ensemble delivers powerful original tracks and superbly arranged classics with a resounding presence, delivering passionate performances from dimly lit dive bars to crowded concert halls and open festival skies.
Tour dates Please note: some dates include Dirty Revival as part of their St. Patrick’s Day celebrations!

THE TALBOTT BROTHERS
Brothers Nick and Tyler Talbott – Portlanders by way of Nebraska – form an alternative blend of folk and rock, creatively combining blood harmonies with storytelling and infectious melodies. A regular McMenamins favorite, the Talbotts followed the release of their latest album, Gray, with a performance at KINK FM's Skype Live Studio, national headlining tour, and appearances at Sisters Folk Fest, Northwest String Summit, Flatwater Music Fest and clubs and theaters across the US.
JUNE 14 through 21
Tow’rs comes to the Pacific Northwest from their home in the mountains of Flagstaff, Arizona. They came together through a shared love for music and storytelling, and through their music they explore the questions, the pain and the hope that is part of the human journey. They are touring behind their latest release Grey Fidelity, an album with which they “invite you not into certainty, but into devotion to hope.”
