The Sallal Grange presents Tinkham Road in concert, 7 p.m. Saturday, May 6 at the Sallal Grange Hall, 12912 432nd Ave. S.E., North Bend.

Enjoy a night of music and storytelling with Snoqualmie Valley’s own Tinkham Road, plus pizza, beer, wine, and an opening performance from The North Benders.

Tinkham Road includes members from the local community performing songs from our shared history. From the peaks of the Cascade mountains, to the shores of Puget Sound, this performance will showcase historical songs with a direct connection to the Seattle area and our local neighborhood. You will hear “Seattle Illahee’ written in the 1860’s and sung in Chinook Jargon, as well Bigfoot songs, in between a few Scandinavian influenced tunes from Washington State in the 1890’s.

Members of this group have collaborated with the Northwest Railway Museum, the Cedar River Watershed Education Center, Newport Jazz Festival, Rachel Kessler (from the Stranger Magazine in Seattle), Lori Goldston (cello player from “Nirvana Unplugged live in New York”), and Smithsonian recognized Hank Nelson, “the singing logger.”

Very recently, band members created soundtrack for a project called “Profanity hill: The history of Yesler Way” and soundtrack for documentary film maker David Walega of Los Angeles.

Tickets are $15, available for purchase at Brown Paper Tickets at http://tinkhamrd.bpt.me/ or at the door.
