The Talbott Brothers is a Portland based duo composed of Nick and Tyler Talbott.

Their entertaining effect on stage is embraced by multiple generations, as they are known for charming and energetic performances that blend singer-songwriter styles with folk, rock, pop and blues.
In addition to high quality acoustic music, the PWCS provides delicious savory and sweet food options during intermission, with a menu provided by Crust & Crumb Company.

Everyone has the capacity to author their own destiny; it’s not our circumstances that shape our lives, it’s our response to those circumstances that either propels us to great heights or keeps us stuck in the mud.
Through a fast-moving series of engaging stories, readers will learn how to ask the right questions to achieve greatness by thinking in bigger and more positive terms.
Professionals from across the globe have implemented this framework to achieve what they truly wanted out of life.
