Canote Brothers to perform Sept. 27 at Heritage Days

Take a trip on the Web's www.canote.com, and you just might be entertained by the wacky charm of Seattle's Greg and Jere Canote.

The fraternal twins are the headline act at the Heritage Days festival on Sept. 26-28 at Sacajawea State Park in Pasco.

The Canote Brothers are perhaps best known for their 13-year stint as congenial radio sidekicks on Sandy Bradley's Potluck show on National Public Radio.

The Heritage Festival is a living history event that commemorates the Lewis & Clark expedition.

Besides the Canote Brothers show, there will be a plethora of vintage demonstrations.

The musical entertainment includes everything from the vintage music of Lewis & Clark's day, to old-time bluegrass as well as Indian storytelling.

Festival hours Sept. 26 are dedicated to school groups from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Then from 3 to 5 p.m., the festival opens to the public.

The gates open at 10 a.m. Sept. 27. The Canote Brothers will perform their show at 2 p.m.

Yakama storytellers will weave their tales at 10:30, 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Sept. 27.

The festival wraps up from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 28.

There is no admission to Heritage Days. For more information, call Reade Obern at 509-492-1555.

The Canote Brothers also will provide music at the Contra Dance at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 27 at the Kennewick Highland Grange Hall at Union Street and 19th Avenue. Cost is $8.
