Richard Colombo & Laurie Linn
After successfully building a thriving non-profit music community, Richard bid farewell to Artichoke Community Music in 2014 to pursue songwriting, performing and building a new space closer to home, where he could continue to teach, inspire and be inspired by the community he loves. He built Bella Musica Song House, a beautiful performance and teaching space on his North East Portland property where he currently hosts house concerts, classes and workshops. During this time he founded the Portland Ukulele Choir where he met Laurie Linn, a gifted singer, visual artist and teacher, a student of life, a lover of dragonflies…but most of all a believer in possibility.
Richard and Laurie felt an immediate connection and were brought together through their lifelong love of music. Since 2015 they have been entertaining their audiences with their engaging style of performance. In 2017 they released “Once In A Lifetime Friend” a CD of twelve original songs penned by Richard.
Together they elevate their music to new heights and invite their audience along for the journey. Their music is heartfelt, honest, courageous and bold and Richard’s original compositions give a glimpse of a world that is not often visible. Their repertoire spans across varying genres including folk, blues, jazz and The Great American Songbook. Their beautiful voices and lush harmonies combined with their artistic and masterful guitar and ukulele arrangements are spot on. A night with Richard and Laurie will leave you with the feeling of hope and wanting more.
