The Riverside Folk at The Griffin House

Please join us on Wednesday, May 4thfor an extraordinary night of music with The Riversideandlocal opener Jess Clemons!
About the Artists:


The Riverside is a traditional melodic and harmony-driven folk string band coming to us from Southern California, where they were founded by husband Jacob (songwriter & guitar) & wife Lorien Jenson (mandolin & vocals) in 2012.The duo swiftly began touring with a rotating cast of friends; playing in theaters, venues, festivals, and house concerts across the United States.

The group aims to create a magical and organic vibe which translates into the feeling of the music, often singing and playing around a single old fashioned microphone, seamlessly blending the musical composition of their harmonies and instruments. Since 2012 the band has released 4 homegrown records and an EP, with more songs and albums in the works.

Jess Clemons’ experience as a traveler, former island dweller, and small town girl have influenced her folksy homegrown musical style. Raised in Vermont, she attended music school in Nova Scotia where she was a side and front woman for various bands, touring around Canada in the summers. A big leap took her to Nantucket, working as a gardener & musician, rowing to and from a houseboat she called home for several years. After finding Baja in 2010 and subsequently the wind-loving community of Hood River, Jess now calls the Gorge home. Playing guitar & piano on stages around the Northwest and in Baja in the winters, she has become known for her powerhouse vocals, intimate originals and tasteful covers of folks like Patty Griffin, Brandi Carlile and Lori Mckenna, all of whom she has been compared to. Coming out of the woodwork after a long two years of nearly no shows, Jess is excited to play for the Gorge community again this summer.

We can’t wait to kick off the first of our 2022 musical events next week and hope to see you there. Concerts will take place on the first Wednesday of every month from May to October — we will be announcing the full roster of events soon!
VIP: $50 (includes early access; complimentary champagne & charcuterie board; & special seating)
