The North Head lighthouse is in need of restoration. For 113 years, this iconic tower has stood watch on the northwestern headland of Cape Disappointment. As the primary, outer coast lighthouse it has served to guide mariners safely into the mouth of the Columbia River. Over the years, the marches of time and the elements have left their indelible marks on the lighthouse, and now its service to us must be returned. The North Head lighthouse needs our help.
The Keepers of the North Head Lighthouse formed in 2009 to insure a steadfast vigil and sound legacy for the lighthouse. The Keepers have been promoting awareness, raising publicity and spearheading the movement to restore the North Head lighthouse.
SATURDAY, MAY 14TH, the Keepers host musical trio, RADIO COWBOY, at the Columbia-Pacific Heritage Museum in Ilwaco, WA. All proceeds from the concert will go to the restoration of North Head. 7pm, $10.00 suggested donation. Refreshments will be provided and also available by donation.
RADIO COWBOY includes national FROGTOWN recording and touring artist Heather Christie, Emmy-Winning musician Philip Pelletier, and San Francisco based singer/songwriter David Miottel. Radio Cowboy combines sounds inspired by artists like Joni Mitchell, Rickie Lee Jones, Gillian Welch, Counting Crows, Emmy Lou Harris, Mark Knopfler and Dead Can Dance, creating a harmony loaded, atmospheric twang that everyone enjoys.
