Logging and sawmills shaped the Pacific Northwest. Listen to music that tells the story of the industry.

Joe Seamons presents folk songs composed by loggers and sawmill workers of the Pacific Northwest, celebrating the music of Hobe Kytr, Dave Berge, and John & Kim Cunnick. Hear songs about skidders, yarders, sawmills, pulling greenchain, and learning to harmonize with what you harvest.

Seamons is a musician and educator based in the Pacific Northwest and dedicated to helping people connect with their heritage through music and storytelling. As director of The Rhapsody Project, he works with youth in Seattle to explore the influence of regional and personal history through the lens of American blues and folk songs. He serves as board chair of the Maxville Heritage Interpretive Center. Joe's work to interpret, document, and reflect upon the ethos of Northwest folk songs and stories - post colonization - continues regularly on his blog.
