Preservation Pub at Old World Deli: WHITESIDE THEATRE - Rescue, Rehab, and Renaissance, Thurs Oct 26, 6 pm

 A presentation by George Pearson (Old World Deli, 341 SW 2nd St.)  The program is free and open to the public.  Come early for food and brew. 
Threatened in 2007 with gutting for a mini-mall and restaurant, engaged citizens rallied to save the spectacular theatre.  After procedural battles at the local and state levels, the fledgling Whiteside Theatre Foundation successfully requested the landmark in 2008 as a gift for the people of Corvallis.  Since then, remarkable work, mostly by volunteers, returned the 1922 Whiteside to its original role as a cultural center in downtown.  Enjoy this look back -- and forward -- at a remarkable citizen project.
George Pearson previously chaired the Whiteside Theatre Foundation.  During that time, the Whiteside upgraded safety features and relighted the marquee, bringing animation to a long dark corner of downtown.  The retired Associate Dean of OSU's College of Science continues to advocate actively for the Whiteside Theatre.

TANNAHILL WEAVERS from Scotland, Sun Oct 29, 7 pm

General admission $20, Advance Reserved $30: for live link to Brown Paper tickets, doubleclick on the title or click "Read on" and then Tannahill Weavers.  

The Tannahill Weavers are one of Scotland's premier traditional bands. Their diverse repertoire spans the centuries with fire-driven instrumentals, topical songs, and original ballads and lullabies. Their music demonstrates to old and young alike the rich and varied musical heritage of the Celtic people. These versatile musicians have received worldwide accolades consistently over the years for their exuberant performances and outstanding recording efforts that seemingly can't get better...yet continue to do just that.

Over the years the Tannies have been trailblazers for Scottish music, and their tight harmonies and powerful, inventive arrangements have won them fans from beyond the folk and Celtic music scenes.  In 2011 the band was inducted into the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame, and in 2014 they are joined by innovative piper Lorne MacDougall. Lorne comes with a high pedigree, having arranged and performed pipes for the Disney Pixar movie Brave, along with a long list of other accomplishments. With the release of the Tannahill's 17th recording, Live and In Session, on award-winning label Compass Records, they are firmly established as one of the premier groups on the concert stage. From reflective ballads to foot-stomping reels and jigs, the variety and range of the material they perform is matched only by their enthusiasm and lively Celtic spirits.
