Music at the Langlois Cheese Factory - AJ Lee & Blue Summit

AJ Lee & Blue Summit are an exceptionally talented group of musicians from California’s Bay Area who pick and sing a driving style of bluegrass, Americana, and country blues. Since emerging on the scene in 2015, the band has gained international notoriety and become a torchbearer for the next generation of bluegrass musicians. Their style taps the purity of classic bluegrass, the avant-garde new grass of the 1970’s, and the genre bending sound of today’s Americana music. The band is led by singer, songwriter, and mandolinist, AJ Lee, with Sullivan Tuttle and Scott Gates on steel stringed acoustic guitars, Jan Purat on fiddle, and Chad Bowen on upright bass.

Whether you like to watch and listen, or take to the dance floor, you’ll want to see AJ Lee & Blue Summit perform. So come out Sunday, November 19th and welcome them back to the Langlois Cheese Factory.

Doors open at 6:30 and the show starts at 7:00.

$20.00 at the Door – no advance tickets.

And please spread the word!

Home and Away:  The Impact of World Wars I and II on Southern Coos and Northern Curry Counties in Oregon by Bonnie Jensen Cox and Jerry Cox

Local history authors Bonnie Jensen Cox and Jerry Cox have combined efforts to produce Home and Away:  The Impact of World Wars I and II on Southern Coos and Northern Curry Counties in Oregon.  The study offers a well-documented narration of what life was like for people living on the local homefront during World Wars I and II.  Among the questions addressed are: How were national and state mandates for enlistments, rationing, and war readiness implemented locally?; What was the impact of war on families, education, the local economy, and community cohesiveness?; In the aftermath, what solutions were there for handling post-traumatic stress, war-related injuries, and surplus items?   

The boundary for the study is the legal border that encompasses today’s Port Orford-Langlois School District 2CJ, inclusive of the area from Laurel Grove in Coos County to Mussel Creek near Prehistoric Gardens in Curry County. The eastern border of the study extends to the historic town of Eckley.  The authors have compiled a list of men and women who served during the two wars---inclusive of all residents who lived within the boundary of the study at some point in their lives.

Special attention has been given to the young men who lost their lives during the two wars ---their back stories and the circumstances leading to their final denouement described. The 520- page work is published in hardback and includes 200 pages of color images and maps to validate the study. 

Because it is the authors’ goal to put the information out to the public and make it affordable, the selling price of the book is well below the actual printing cost.  Interested parties can find the publication at both the Langlois and Port Orford libraries, and soon it will be available at the Curry Historical Society.  For further information, contact bonjercox@gmail, text 541-404-2490, or phone 541-808-0270. 

Other books by Bonnie Jensen Cox are:  1.  The Story Behind the Treble Clef:  Family Roots in Denmark Oregon; and 2.  School Evolution:  A Study of Southern Coos and Northern Curry School Origins.
