Live Music by Robert Sarazin Blake & David Pender Lofgren

About Robert Sarazin Blake
In 1997, he dropped out of college and hit the road. The folk music of his father’s house had combined with the DIY punk ethos of the day and produced his first batch of songs, Another Irrelevant Year. On the heels of Richard Manning, Billy Bragg, and Ani Difranco, Blake’s 18-year-old release is an early document of the folk-punk movement. On his first US tour, Blake played 30 shows around the US planting seeds as he developed touring, not as an economic model, but as a lifestyle. He hasn’t stopped. Eleven full length albums into his career, he’s continued to write pulling from folk roots, his travels, his contemporaries, and the quiet spot in the back of his mind. The writing has evolved, mellowing with experience and expanding with reference, but the essence of the work has remained the same-strong narratives solidly built on the folk foundation and fully in the immediacy of the now. 

Robert Sarazin Blake has hosted Boundary Bay’s Happy Hour BBQ on Thursday afternoon for many years.

About David Pender Lofgren
David Pender Lofgren is a percussionist, a carpenter, and is easily fascinated. Born and raised in Kittery Point, Maine, he spent his formative years playing music with friends in cafés and farmers markets, listening to NPR while working for his father (also a carpenter), and wandering around town having conversations with strangers. He has been living in Bellingham, Washington since 2006 and his hobbies haven't changed much.

David Pender Lofgren hosts a local music podcast, Little Sound, Big City, that’s explores the voices and sounds that shape Bellingham.
