The 2nd Saturday Community Concerts present, PHOENIX!
Based in Salem, Oregon - the folk pop duo Phoenix consists of award-winning songwriters Tim and Kathy Crosby - who have been performing together for well over 2 decades. Together they have collaborated on several CD's and are known far and wide for their songwriting abilities and entertainment style.
Tim and Kathy have performed together from Las Vegas to Nashville, in venues large and small. Being compared to the likes of Willie Nelson, Gillian Welch, and David Rawlings - Phoenix rises in the joy of a sound that highlights the multi-instrumental talents of both musicians while focusing on a variety of vocal styles and abilities.
Known as the "talent" of the duo, Tim Crosby is proficient on any instrument with strings and spends his days teaching a variety of students the joy of playing a musical instrument. His private classes take place in both Salem and Corvallis, Oregon. While the "personality" of the couple is Kathy Crosby, who not only manages Phoenix, but spends her days teaching piano lessons in the Salem, Oregon area. In addition to this she is a GrammyU Mentor, writer, public speaker, consultant, and musical advocate. Currently she serves as the President of the Oregon Festival and Events Association.
The duo have won numerous awards for their performance and songwriting styles, most recently a 2023 nomination for Duo of the Year and Best Folk/Americana Album from the Josie Music Awards, and TWO songwriting nominations from the Intercontinental Music Awards.
