Wes Gannaway and Kent Holsather will talk about and show photos of local bands and venues for Rock and Roll music from the early 1950s through 1960s in Whatcom County.
Wes Gannaway has been researching history with Kent Holsather for several decades. They are co-authors of four books; “Whatcom Then and Now,” “Bellingham Then and Now,” “Bays to Bells,” and “Drive-ins, Drive-ups, and Drive-Thrus.” Kent and Wes worked together at the Atlantic Richfield Refinery from 1971 to 2010, where they found that they had a mutual interest in local history. Both are continuing to work on projects such as a historical chronology of the County, the sandstone quarries, and the 1858 Richards Building. Co-presented by the Whatcom County Historical Society.
