The Oregon Trail and Beyond Less

Playing string, brass and wind instruments and sharing readings from pioneer diaries, The Oregon Trail Trio brings to life the history and culture of the Oregon Territory and Oregon and Washington shortly after statehood. Students will help answer queries: Where does the banjo come from? What is this strange instrument that looks like a snake? What does a jig sound like? The audience will sing along to traditional songs and thrill to the tale of the Heppner flood of 1903, when "two experienced range riders" raced a flood to save a town.

Travel Costs: For sites located more than 15 miles from downtown Portland, an additional mileage fee will be applied and is calculated using the IRS reimbursement rate.
