Portland's French Troubadour Returns to FAIS
Posted 06/15/2018 05:00PM

Though he travels close to 10,000 miles every year touring the United States and abroad with his music, next week Portland-based French musician Eric John Kaiser will return to FAIS to participate in this year's Fête de la Musique. Eric has shared the stage with musicians from around the world, including Welsh superstars The Stereophonics, French star Tété, and French band The Revolver. In Portland, he regularly collaborates with local and foreign talents. During the week of its release, his most recent album, "Made in Gaspésie," charted #14 on the Billboard World Chart.

Following his performance at the Fête de la Musique, after a string of shows around Oregon, Washington, and California, Eric will instruct a week-long music camp (Rock Band: Jam, Record, Perform) as a part of Summerfest, FAIS's middle school summer program. Open to students of all skill levels, this camp will give young musicians a chance to work on writing, covering, and practicing songs of their choice to perform live during an exclusive performance for friends and family in a real concert venue. For more information on that camp, visit the School's Summer Programs webpage, and scroll down to Week 5. To find more information about Eric and to sample a bit of his music before the Fête de la Musique, you can visit his website.
