Fall City Historical Society’s annual community program is hosting a show of songs and stories performed by Valley musician and historian Bob Antone, along with members of the local band Tinkham Road.

The Oct. 19 event, titled “The Old Plank Road,” will feature logging songs and stories of the Snoqualmie Valley and the greater Northwest. The show will be hosted from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Fall City Masonic Lodge.

The Antone family has been in the Valley for about 100 years. Bob Antone and his wife Laura live in the house where Bob spent time as a youngster with his great-grandmother and grandparents. From his grandfather he heard stories and songs of the work crews on the railroad, from logging camps, and from hobo camps on the Snoqualmie River. Grandpa John also played the musical saw and passed that skill down to Bob. Since then, Bob has researched and collected songs of the early Northwest.

The work of Fall City Historical Society is supported by King County 4Culture.
