First Tuesday Music: Bernie Sims

Tuesday, December 3, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Local musician Bernie Sims brings his unique blend of rock and soul to Lake Oswego Public Library's First Tuesday Music Series in a free concert with pianist Brian Rose at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3. Bernie has been performing, solo and in bands, for over 40 years. Now living in Sherwood, he spent his formative years in Salt Lake City before moving to the Pacific Northwest in 1974. His many influences include Kenny Loggins, Paul McCartney, Boz Scaggs, Billy Joel, Donald Fagen and Stephen Stills. These influences can be heard in Bernie’s songs, which speak to love and love gone awry, nature and man’s place in it, and the search for meaning in a world spinning too fast. Bernie produced and released his first CD “Alter Ego” in April of 2002. The CD’s nine, fresh adult contemporary songs feature several outstanding Portland players and vocalists. The Lake Oswego Review said this of the album: “Expressing feelings and experiences people will relate to is the force behind singer songwriter Bernie Sims’ artistic work.” This concert is made possible by the Friends of the Lake Oswego Public Library, and is at the library, 706 Fourth Street, Lake Oswego, OR 97034.
