We are excited to host John Nilsen in concert. A truly amazing musician, he offers us a wonderful variety of music and makes our baby grand piano sing! It’s been a couple of years since he visited us, and we anticipate more of his fun mixture of rock, jazz, and folk compositions.
John Nilsen is a pianist, guitarist, vocalist and songwriter and one of the Pacific Northwest’s most successful performance and recording artists. Magic Wing, the record label Nilsen founded thirty three ago, has a catalogue of twenty titles, all distributed internationally with many being licensed outside the United States in countries, including Germany, Great Britain, The Philippines, Canada, Taiwan and Singapore. John Nilsen’s record sales far exceed a million copies, a rare accomplishment in the music industry.
Nilsen tours nationally as a solo pianist, performs with the John Nilsen Trio, and with his guitar/vocal rock band “John Nilsen & SWIMFISH.” He speaks and conducts residencies on songwriting and musical performance at schools throughout the country, including every school in his home district outside Portland, OR.
