On August 25th at 1:00 pm, The Friends of the Seaside Library welcome Ron Walker for a screening of "Musicians of the North Coast."
From Haystack Rock to the mouth of the Columbia River, there is a treasure trove of talented musicians living and working in Clatsop County.
In the documentary style of Ken Burns, filmmaker Ron Walker sought out several of these musicians and recorded their stories.
Through interviews and live recordings, Walker blends the fascinating tales of independent artists and the creative process involved in their creations.
As an added bonus, selected musicians from the film will perform at the event.
"Musicians of the North Coast" is the cinema verite at its finest.
Ron Walker, is a filmmaker, musician, and artist. He learned the craft of filmmaking as the resident music composer for the Film Loft in Portland in the 1980s.

The event will take place in the Community Room at 1:00 p.m.
