Duo recreates Adirondack logging-camp life through music


Folk artists Cosby Gibson and Tom Staudle will sing and play songs traditionally performed by lumberjacks in the 1800s logging camps of the Adirondacks and share narrative about the era at the Oneida County History Center, 1608 Genesee St. in Utica at 1 p.m. April 20.

Gibson and Staudle are award-winning songwriters and singers who live near the Adirondacks in upstate New York.

They have performed as a duo for eight years and tour both regionally and nationally playing at festivals, concert series, house concerts, and other events.
