After reviving Northwest sawmill ballads from an obscure songbook, local folk/acoustic/blues band Timberbound is now interpreting the Northwest songs of Woody Guthrie for a forthcoming album, Roll On, Columbia. With an upcoming performance at The Lake Theater & Café, fans have the opportunity to get a live preview of these obscure songs Guthrie penned while living in the Portland area and working for the US government’s Bonneville Power Administration. This November, Timberbound will release a double album recording of Guthrie’s songs!
Timberbound is led by banjo player and guitarist Joe Seamons (half of the 2016 International Blues Challenge solo/duo winning act Ben Hunter & Joe Seamons), and the group features multi-instrumentalist Gavin Duffy, fiddle player Jenny Estrin and vocalist Kate Sandgren.
Timberbound will be returning to The Lake Theater & Café on Monday, September 5 for a 7:00 pm presentation of these Woody Guthrie songs. Tickets available online at Laketheatercafe.com for $20.00 general admission.
