PORTLAND — American contemporary folk musician Tao Seeger, founder of The Mammals and grandson of folk musician Pete Seeger, will play Wednesday, Aug. 25, at Venue Music Bar.

Playing banjo, harmonica and guitar, and singing in both Spanish and English, Seeger has been affiliated with The Anarchist Orchestra, Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion, Roy Brown and Tito Auger.

He has broken the barrier of traditional folk to bring in a unique and distinctive sound of folk meets rock ‘n’ roll with a “rootsy and psychadellic” twist.

In January of 2009, Seeger performed with his grandfather, Bruce Springsteen and a youth chorus at Barack Obama’s inaugural celebration.

The show will begin at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10. The Venue is at 865 Forrest Ave.
