Margo Cilker / Tobacco City

4545 N Lincoln Ave · The Myron R. Szold Music & Dance Hall · 773.728.6000

A great double bill pairs one of Oregon's finest songwriting exports, Margo Cilker, with a special duo show from Chicago's own cosmic country greats, Tobacco City.

Margo Cilker

For the last seven years, the Eastern Oregon songwriter Margo Cilker, who NPR calls one of “11 Oregon Artists to Watch in 2021,” has split her time between the road and various outposts across the world, from Enterprise, OR to the Basque Country of Spain, forging a path that is at once deeply rooted and ever-changing.

“Margo Cilker's weathered voice, an instrument that conjures up visions of wide-open spaces and wanderlust, has quickly made her one of (Oregon's) linchpins” - NPR Music


Tobacco City

"Tobacco City mixes cosmic country with psychedelic choogle, but "Never On My Mind"… well, that's where the honky tonk meets the soul revue. Like the Chicago band's namesake, a slow smoke hangs in the air, heavy with heartbreak and feather-blue eyeshadow, but puts a brave face on.” - NPR
