Instructor: Seattle Public Utilities Naturalist

Enjoy local musical traditions performed by Snoqualmie Valley artist, Bob Antone, and family. Connect to the past through songs about Pacific Northwest history and industry: old-time logging tunes, railroad folklore, and maybe even tales of Bigfoot and other strange creatures of the northwest woods. Celebrate through fiddle music performed on a century-old violin, and hear the ethereal sound of the musical saw. Audiences young and old will find their toes tapping with these old-time tunes.
