The song below, “Grange Hall Saturday Night”, can be heard at the end of the radio show:

By the Light of the Moon: Grange Hall Dances in Washington State, is a radio documentary I produced based on interviews and recordings. I traveled around Washington recording interviews of Grange members and musicians from 1993 to 1994. The project was sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Washington State Arts Commission, and the Washington State Rural Development Council.

All the records and supporting materials are housed with my archives, at the Center for Pacific Northwest Studies.

You can listen to the full show and download it as well, right here:


Here’s another song that I wrote for the project. (I’m still looking for the tune.)
