HORSES CUT SHOP - TIMBER REVIVAL:  SATURDAY, AUGUST 30TH

Northwest Timber Revival Horses Cut Shop presents a Northwest "Timber Revival" on the grounds of the historic Polson Museum in Hoquiam, Washington, Labor Day Weekend, Saturday, August, 30th. This day-long, free to the public event features eight hours of live music, a beer garden, whiskey tasting, vintage logging equipment gawking, a good ol'fashioned keg-put, free sunshine and graphic t-shirts representing local, iconic timber industry brands. Sponsored by Filson, Stanley, Wishkaw River Distillery and Westland Distillery, all profits from the Timber Revival event go to support the Natural Resources - Forestry Technician Program at nearby Grays Harbor College which serves the coastal communities of western Washington state. This two year applied associate degree program provides students with the skills needed to secure jobs in the modern-day timber industry.

“Horses Cut Shop Revival events seek to re-introduce audiences to their regional American roots by reviving the brands and stories which represent their personal geographies. By creating celebrations that both honor the legacy and support the future of local industry, Horses Cut Shop hopes to strengthen the ties we all have to our communities and those elements which make them unique. ”

Together with drummer Jason Merculief, the group perform classic country duets that sound something like Tammy and George dubbed over the soundtrack to a Sergio Leone spaghetti western." - American Standard Time
