Bradford Loomis and Stephanie Anne Johnson will share the Space Craft stage from 7:30 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 18 at Rolling Bay Hall.

Had he lived 150 years ago, Loomis may have been riding rail cars out West or sailing down the Mississippi on a paddle boat.

Born in the Northwest in more modern times, though, he’s lived to tell a different, but no less exciting, tale. Through years of choir, band and orchestra he discovered a powerful kinship to the songs and stories of those bygone eras as they helped show him a meaningful way to tell his story.

Loomis’ work marries grit and melody to dig to the roots of American folklore and speak of the raw reality of the human condition with passion. His stories span several lifetimes of relatable emotions; bitterness and loss, deep longing and regret, enduring hope and love, elation and joy. His influences include Chris Stapleton, the Swell Season, Johnny Cash and T-Bone Burnett.

Johnson is a multifaceted vocalist who enjoys singing the acoustic music she writes, and the performing in some of the greatest musical theater ever written. In the past year, she has performed with Oregon Shakespeare Festival, at numerous venues with other musicians and is currently performing with Actor’s Theater in Louisville in “Lady Day.”

She was a lounge singer for Holland America Cruise Line, a member of the Seattle area Dickens Carolers and a top 20 finalist on NBC’s Emmy Award-winning “The Voice” singing competition.

Her final performance, “Georgia on My Mind,” rose to the Number 4 spot on iTunes “R&B and Soul” charts.

Tickets, $12 in advance and $15 at the door, are available online at www.spacecraftpresents.org.
