The Methow Valley Interpretive Center along with Washington State Parks present a Stories of the Methow Lecture: Life & Times in the Methow Valley with Hank Cramer.
Hank Cramer is a national-touring folksinger from the Pacific Northwest, best known for his booming bass voice, wry humor, and smooth flat-picking on a vintage guitar. At one time or another, Hank has been an underground miner, wrangler for a high-country outfitter, an Army ”Green Beret”, and shantyman on a square-rigged sailing ship. Hank writes many of his own songs, but also interprets ballads by such favorite writers as Bill Staines, John Stewart, Ian Tyson, Chuck Pyle, and James Keelaghan. Hank has recorded twenty-one CDs, four movie sound-tracks, and three music videos, and receives nationwide radio airplay. He is the recipient of the 2011 Humanities Washington Award for excellence in the performing arts. He also presents educational music programs for Road Scholars and for national, state, and local parks and museums, folk festivals across North America. When not on the road Hank lives on a ranch in Washington’s Methow Valley with his wife Kit, daughter Kelsey, and their many critters.
The lecture will be held at the Pearrygin Lake State Park Amphitheater – a Discover Pass is required and can be obtained at the Park entrance.
