Join us at the Tillamook Main Library on Saturday, April 6th at 2:00pm for a wonderful program with one of Oregon Culture Keepers, Hobe Kytr!
“Hobe Kytr is a folklorist, songwriter, and musician who specializes in songs about the history and folklore of Northwest regional life, especially that of fishermen and loggers. Hobe has worked to identify and reanimate songs in archival texts and other discovered sources. These include “Old Miller Sands,” a song by an Irish fisher about working on the Columbia River seining grounds, and “Logging at Butler’s Camp,” a moniker song about life at a Northwest logging camp” (from the Museum of Natural and Cultural History).
