Musical Entertainment – Featuring the Pinery Boys

Journey back in time with these historical “edu-tainers” in an interactive, musical performance where you will hear authentic, “a-capella” logging-era music sung in four-part harmony. Beginning in the early 1800’s, America began to grow by leaps and bounds. The new expansion required huge amounts of timber for the building of homes, cities and businesses all across the country. The wood was provided by lumberjacks working feverishly to harvest the white pine of the northern forests of North America. Like the Cowboy and the Voyageur, being a Lumberjack became a way of life with a code of ethics and a folk song repertoire of its own that embodies the lives and times of those rough and tumble workers. It is these songs that form the basis of this entertaining historical overview of the logging era. Song lyrics reflect the dreams, joys, sorrows, work and play of the everyday life of the logging camps.
