A Tribute to Arthur “Fresh Air” Moore

With 5 singers, 3 guitars, 1 harp player and a kick-ass rhythm section, Memphis Shorty does it up right for good times and dancing with a multifarious mix of Americana, blues, and rock and roll. The band came together through a cosmic alignment between Jim Miller, the late beloved Portland musician and major force behind the Waterfront Blues Festival, and Arthur “Fresh Air” Moore, Portland’s dedicated blues harmonica evangelist.

Harpalooza is our way of expressing our gratitude and honoring Arthur by showcasing talented harp players who have been nurtured and mentored by Arthur Moore.
