OYSTERVILLE — Singer, songwriter and acoustic guitar player Nicole Freshley will be the featured performer at the Oysterville Vespers, Sunday, July 28.
Raised in Oysterville and Portland, her songs draw on Americana and folk traditions and, often, as in "The Oysterman," pay homage to her fifth-generation Oysterville roots.
Conducting the ecumenical Sunday service will be Deacon Jerry Sadler of St. Mary's Parish, Seaview. Diane Buttrell, representing the Oysterville Restoration Foundation (sponsors of the summer Vespers program), will present the traditional Oysterville Moment and will also play the vintage pump organ to accompany the congregational singing. The hour-long program begins at 3 p.m.
