Beth Orton

GRACE STAINBACK
8 pm., Tuesday September 10 | $30.
Alberta Rose Theatre
3000 NE Alberta St.
 
[FOLK] Before electro-folk existed, there was Beth Orton. Her work in the ’90s, a spirited blend of folk rock and electronic textures, paved the way for experimentation in the singer-songwriter genre. But after resurfacing last year with Sugaring Season, her first album in six years (recorded here in Portland), Orton has returned to her earthy, unplugged roots. While her visit falls within the same week as MFNW—whose lineup includes several artists who could have taken a page from Orton’s early songbook—expect this show to be a crowded celebration of mellow, classic folk.
