Family Tradition is back again!





Family Tradition is back again!

The Lonesome Billies are more than just adored crusaders of traditional, whiskey swillin' country western tunes, but they're also hard working fundraisers for an important nonprofit integral to keeping youth involved in music.

Outlaws in their own right, the foursome, who go by the names of Bill Collins, Gator Bill (vox, lead guitar), Ornery Bill (vox, acoustic guitar) and Whiskey Bill (vox, bass) ask for a flurry of support to head to the Alberta Abbey tomorrow, 9.30 for their 7th Annual Family Tradition extravaganza. The Family Tradition involves more than just music - it's also an auction, a potluck and a little bit of a barn house dance, with all of the proceeds going to My Voice Music.

Items provided by Pendleton Woolen Mills, Widmer Brothers Brewing, Obey Giant and other companies will be auctioned off. A great deal of food will be offered as well, including band member Gator Bill's famous brisket. Along with the Lonesome Billies themselves taking the stage, expect performances from some My Voice Music artists, a bit of alternative folk rock from Vancouver, Washington's Lincoln's Beard, and a reading or two from Oregonian Cowboy poet Tom Swearingen.

The Lonesome Billies are asking for just a $10 suggested donation to attend the Family Tradition, though surely no one will be turned away for not having that much. For such a great cause, why not come out and get your cowboy on?
