Cowboy singer to perform in Pendleton



PENDLETON -- Folksinger Hank Cramer will perform in concert here at the Little Vert Theater at 7 p.m. Saturday.

The doors will open by 6:30 p.m. Admission is $15 for adults, $10 for seniors (60-plus) and youths (6-16). Children get in free. The Little Vert is located at 345 S.W. Fourth St.

Hank is a full-time traveling musician who lives in Winthrop, Wash. He has released 19 albums, recorded several movie soundtracks and is well-known for his booming bass voice, wry sense of humor and smooth picking on a vintage flat-top guitar. Northwest Public Radio named Hank's "Songs From Maurie's Porch" CD to their top 10 folk albums of 2006. Heartland Public Radio picked Hank's recording of "My Sweet Wyoming Home" as one of its Top Five cowboy songs of 2007.

The set list for the concert is steeped in Northwest history -- songs of Oregon Trail emigrants, cowboys, sailors, miners, railroad workers, farmers and just plain folks. Hank weaves historical stories and humor among the songs and always invites audiences to sing along. Hank will be accompanied by long time music partners Mark Iler on harmonica and tenor guitar, Michelle Cameron on cello and Robby Thran on guitar and hammered dulcimer.
