Brick & Mortar
'Brick & Mortar' is a tour de force. Wonderful songs, wonderfully recorded!' - Tom Paxton ...at Miz Kitty's Parlour & Vaudevillian Revue at the Mission Theatre, April 2009... The first to come on are Kate Power and Steve Einhorn. You probably know them, at least, from Artichoke Music, the store they ran for 26 years and turned into a Portland institution. Along the way, they've developed a national reputation as folk musicians, singers and composers. As they move into "Highway 101," with Power on banjo and Einhorn on guitar, I am sent immediately to that place of safety that can only be reached at the hands of journeymen artists. The power and precision of their performance gives me the complete trust to lean into the music, to get lost in it. Then Power takes out a ukulele and begins "Before You Go," a song she wrote for Einhorn. He joins her on guitar. It is a sweet song with sweet harmony. Like all good folk songs, it sounds as if nobody wrote it. It is as if it's always been there.' NW Examiner, Portland, Oregon.
