In an ongoing effort to preserve the music of the Pacific Northwest and share it with Seattle, a work party ensued last Saturday July 23rd at a South Everett storage location for Victory Music. Rex Young, Chuck Hutton, Doug Paterson and Jerry Russell of KBFG helped sort out old music CDs with President Stanislove and Secretary Malcolm Kennedy of Victory Music.
In this month’s portion of the storage unit’s contents, 287 of those CDs were identified as coming from the Pacific Northwest (the bio-region referred to as “Cascadia”). This is over a hundred CDs than last month’s work party (well done!). The music genre appears to be largely folk and blues. More details on the music will be coming soon.
Chuck and Jerry are systematically making back-up digital copies of all 287 CDs at high quality bit rates. The physical CDs will be transferred to History House of Greater Seattle for perpetual safe keeping soon, at a date to be determined.
Another such work party may be planned for a Saturday in September, when sorting the remainder of the Victory Music treasure trove is expected to be completed. Volunteers eagerly anticipate finding a large collection of Blues in the remaining music.
