DEADLINE APPROACHING FOR MUSEUM GRANTS
The deadline is approaching for Oregon Museum Grants. These grants
support projects for the collection and management of heritage
collections, for heritage-related tourism, and heritage education and
interpretation. They require no match; however, projects with an in-kind
or cash match are more likely to succeed.
The Oregon Heritage Commission must receive proposals no later than
Sept. 30 and will notify successful applicants in November. The timeline
for project completion is Nov. 1, 2012. For complete information and
applications, visit www.oregonheritage.org and click on “grants”.

FOLK MUSIC AND FIDDLES FEATURED IN BAKER CITY
Pacific Northwest folk musicians Phil and Vivian Williams bring their
program of historic fiddle music to the National Historic Oregon Trail
Interpretive Center in Baker City on Aug. 25 - 27. They will present
their program at 10 a.m., noon and 2 p.m. each day in the Leo Adler
Theater. Based in Seattle, the Williams’ have researched, recorded and
preserved folk music since the early 1960s. Their recorded archive of
northwest fiddle and old time music is the largest in the country. In
their program, “Fiddling Down the Oregon Trail”, they will feature
dance tunes and fiddle music from pioneers who traveled the trail to the
Pacific Northwest plus fascinating stories of the origins of the fiddle
tunes and dances common in that era. Visit oregontrail.blm.gov for more
information or call (541) 523-1843.
