Norman Sylvester band featuring Sarah Billings, Renato Caranto & Brian Foxworth bring the “Blues on the Rails” show back by popular demand.
Norman Sylvester and his family boarded the Union Pacific Vista Dome train in 1957 from the farmlands of Bonita Louisiana to a new life in Portland Oregon. His first experience to the West was making that 3 day train ride eating out of their lunch basket his Grandmother had packed. When the Train Porters changed in Denver, the African American Porters from Portland were ready to receive the Southern families by taking them to the Pullman car after the dinner crowd was gone and treating them to prime rib & bake potato dinners. Their first step into Portland was the Historic Union Station platform. Performing his Blues at Wilf’s is a tribute to his soulful & blessed journey here.
