Updated information below.

The Pilgrim Family is a mountain family that lives high in the Wrangell Mountains of Alaska inside the Wrangell St. Elias National Park.  They have lived in the Wilderness of Alaska for six years, before that in a Wilderness location in New Mexico.

Their music is a unique mountain gospel-bluegrass style.  Wonderfully uplifting and exhilarating.   They are self-taught and frankly, terrific musicians and singers.  Their close harmonies will thrill you.  You’ll get a little taste of something really special.  This unique family offers you music you’ve likely not heard before and unfortunately, may not get a chance to hear again.

For those few of us who have met and heard them, it is like discovering the Carter Family in 1927 all over again.  The first time they were in front of a microphone was three weeks ago at an open mike.  Every place we’ve taken them we to play, people responded to their wonderful music.

The family is in Portland because nine-year-old Abraham tore one of his fingers off in a generator accident.  Papa, Jerusalem, and Abraham flew to Portland on an emergency basis to Dornbecker Children’s Hospital in an attempt to re-attach the finger.  Five other kids came down by van to join them and to drive them back.   Happily, they brought their instruments.  They have to stay a little while to make sure that Abraham’s successfully re-attached finger heals properly.  They have not yet gotten the doctors approval to leave for Alaska.

This is a remarkable mountain family that is not likely to be back in Portland.  They plan to return to their Wilderness life.  A group of music enthusiasts urged them to allow themselves to be recorded and they have agreed.  

The first two concerts were so successful and so many people wanted to hear them that they have agreed to two additional concerts at the Liberty Theater on Thursday, April 22nd and Sunday, April 25th.  Those concerts quickly sold out.

Now, they are doing two more on Thursday, April 29th and Saturday, May 1st.

These concerts were set up by those of us who care about them in order to help get the funds for the family to return home to Alaska.  

Billy Oskay recorded them at his Big Red Studio three weeks ago.  They have  CD’s available for purchase by concert attendees.

For more information about the family, we’ve helped them set up a website with pictures at < www.pilgrimfamily.com >

For more information about the Pilgrims contact Chuck Cushman, at (360) 687-2656.

Who knows if they’ll ever pass this way again.  Call your friends and neighbors.  Pass the word at your church.  This is a unique and special event.

These are the final two concerts so call now.
