If you've ever watched an episode of NBC's Parks and Recreation, you're already familiar with the work of Gaby Moreno, the award-winning singer-songwriter who cowrote the show's peppy theme song. Born and raised in Guatemala, Moreno was inspired early on by artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone and Aretha Franklin, learning to speak English by singing the songs she loved (and winning both the Latin Grammy for Best New Artist and the John Lennon Songwriting Contest in the process). For this concert at Portland's Alberta Rose Theatre, Moreno's joined by Goodnight Moonshine, a folk music trio featuring Molly Venter, formerly of the popular folk trio Red Molly, her husband Eben Pariser and upright bass player Adam Chilenski. As American Songwriter Magazine once gushed: "Few singers turn first time listeners into eternal fanatics as effortlessly as Molly Venter."
