Live on KEXPLive on KEXP

Margo Cilker

View descriptionShare

On the show this time, it’s the West Coast Americana of Margo Cilker. 

Margo Cilker is a California native, of the Santa Clara Cilkers, a town in the Southern Bay, transformed by the relentless onslaught of technology companies. Farmland and apricot orchards have fallen prey to silicon and semiconductors. She moved north in her 20s, spending time in Oregon, and then barely into the state of Washington midway between Portland and Walla Walla.

She writes about life, embracing the poetically cryptic, as she wonders aloud concerning cattle drives, loneliness, drinking, and a friend's trout. Her latest record is called 'Valley of Heart's Delight,' sharing that title with the actual place, and a couple of books. It is available on Fluff & Gravy Records.

Recorded 12/19/2024.
