Welcome to the GAIA Project website where we celebrate the absolute best in American Roots music. From veteran performers to emerging singer-songwriters and groups who are just starting to test their wings, it is our goal to help bring these outstanding performers to the people of the Greater Northwest.
We seek to promote any genre of music that has its roots in the Americas. This includes a variety of musical styles, including folk, country, blues, zydeco, bluegrass, traditional jazz, jug band and Latin. If you are interested in seeing live music performed by entertaining and talented people who have something to say, then I encourage you to check out our upcoming concerts.
I'm finally back up in Southern Oregon after my knee replacement surgery. Still have a long way to go before I'm back to normal, but I wanted to let you all know that next up for The GAIA Project is a concert with a highly unique band: WAKE THE DEAD has been combining Celtic music with the music of the Grateful Dead for well over ten years. This combination of musical styles allows them to have a totally unique sound. On Friday, September 18th at 7:30 pm, WAKE THE DEAD will be playing at the Rogue Valley Unitarian Church in downtown Ashland. A lively party atmosphere is part of all WTD performances. If you're either a lover of Celtic music or a Deadhead, you don't want to miss this concert! Hope to see many of you there!

True music appreciators
At The GAIA Project, bringing great American roots music to the masses isn’t just a business, it’s a passion. We scour the radio, music stores, and Internet in search of great performers who bring a unique perspective to the stage.
Come check out one of our concerts and find out for yourself how American music is not only alive and well, but also providing audiences with different ways of listening to, understanding, and experiencing creativity.
I firmly believe that music is an essential component to the human condition. It is not merely a diversion with which to fill our leisure hours. Music provides us with solace in difficult times, reinforces our happiest moments, and helps us makes sense out of an increasingly chaotic world.
Perhaps the musical style that best satisfies these claims is the broad category known as Roots music. The GAIA Project is dedicated to bringing the best American Roots music available to the people of Oregon. In a time where synthesized sounds, sampling, and nursery rhyme quality lyrics populate the airwaves, we strive to bring intelligent, articulate music to our audience.
We have been lucky at The GAIA Project to be able to bring together likeminded music appreciators who can look beyond the pop tunes that dominate the airwaves and find true gems of American music. It is our pleasure to give music fans a new outlet where they can find the best that American music has to offer.
