During those years Eric studied all the styles of solo guitar music, including lute music from the Renaissance era, ragtime, fiddle tunes, blues and more. Eric continues to study, allowing him to bring something new to each performance.

Here’s some more trivia for you. Did you know that a lottery crew filmed a commercial at Mock Crest Tavern? It’s true. The Oregon Lottery visited the tavern on June 20, 2003, to film a commercial for a new ScratchIt game called “Monday Night Scoreboard”. They took over the tavern for the day and closed it to the public. They also brought all their own equipment including:
- Filming equipment
After the long day, their finished product was a 20 second commercial. Not only does Mock Crest hold an intriguing history, but they also have a 20 second claim to fame.
Stay tuned for further announcements of events and performances.
Have a great week, and we’ll see ya there!
