Columbia Festival of the Arts presents Portland Cello Project

Since the group’s inception in 2007, the Portland Cello Project (or PCP as their fans affectionately call them), has wowed audiences all over the country with extravagant performances, everywhere from Prairie Home Companion, to parties on loading docks in NYC, to symphony halls from coast to coast, to punk rock clubs. The group has built a reputation mixing genres and blurring musical lines and perceptions wherever they go. Their stage setup is epic: five cellos, horns, and a rock-and-roll drum kit.

Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley perform stripped down arrangements of eclectic covers and eccentric originals. Not only is the music stripped down – cello, ukulele, glockenspiel, melodica – the Skivvies literally strip down to perform. There is so much humor, inventiveness, real musicality and FUN had on their stage, it’s infectious – they are a shot of pure joy!
