Armed with an open-tuned acoustic guitar, Vashon singer/songwriter John van Amerongen shares his wry sense of humor and insightful stories of hard-working men and women scratching their livings from land and sea along the North Pacific coastline from Astoria, OR to Dutch Harbor, AK. Beyond his original commercial fishing and roadway ballads, he celebrates the classics of country western, straight bluegrass, traditional gospel and other salutations to America’s true grit and independent spirit.
