Will West & The Friendly Strangers

Friday, July 29th • 9:30pm • Side Stage


Songwriter Will West grew up in a musical home in rural eastern North Carolina. He moved to Portland, Oregon in 2002 with his dog, guitar and a handful of original songs. From his humble beginnings busking on downtown sidewalks, Will West has been on a steady climb in this rich Northwest music scene.

He performs live with a collection of musicians called The Friendly Strangers.  They create a signature blend of modern folk, roots, pop and improvisational grooves.

The Band has released 2 studio albums and is currently wrapping up their highly anticipated new album “Transitions” coming later this year.
