PCP is good for you. The Portland Cello Project comes to the Iron Horse on Saturday, January 8th at 10PM

Since the groups inception in late 2007, the Portland Cello Project (or, PCP, as their fans affectionately call them), has wowed audiences all over the country with extravaganzas of musical variety. The Cello Projects mission is three-fold:

1. To bring the cello to places you wouldnt normally hear it. Theyve performed everywhere, from a tour with Buckethead, to sports bars in Texas, to punk clubs in Boston, to halftime at Blazers games, to Millennium Park in Chicago.

2. To play music on the cello you wouldnt normally hear played on the instrument. Everything from Beethoven to Arvo Paert to Rihanna to Pantera.

3.To build bridges across all musical communities by bringing a diverse assortment of musical collaborators on stage with them. The PCP has collaborated with musicians such as Peter Yarrow (Peter, Paul and Mary), The Dandy Warhols, Mirah, Laura Gibson, Thao, Eric Bachmann (Crooked Fingers), Matt Haimovitz, and  Dan Bern

The Portland Cello Project with opener and collaborator Emily Wells play the Iron Horse in Northampton on Saturday January 8, at 10pm. $10 advance, $12 door. Tickets at NBO. 413-586-8686 and online at
