The Schmaltzing Matildas

The Schmaltzing Matildas bring their unique range of folk, bluegrass, swing and heartfelt original ballads to the Music on the Water series. With decades of playing Portland’s finest pubs, porches, parties and farmer’s markets, Chuck Masi (Stumbleweed, Porch Cats) and Steve Wise (Petulant Whiners, Ollie Mony and the Second Thoughts) have partnered for acoustic picking and vocal harmonies that will take you a journey across the seas of love, hope, peace, moonlight and the flow of rhythm through time. Join us for a special birthday show that will end your week with an upbeat note and convince you that sometimes,  counting to three is all you need.

Staggered Start Times

To minimize shop capacity and wait times, sign up for a launch time and arrive up to 15 minutes in advance. Paddle up to the cove below the bridge and wait for the music to start at 6:20 from a 35 foot voyager canoe. Please book your party together so you can launch in the same group.
