ASTORIA — Hook & Anchor play Fort George Brewery 8 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 11, with special guest Golden Promise from Portland. There is no cover charge for the all-ages show.

Hook & Anchor is a story of lost songs finding a home. After a busy five years of touring with Portland-based band Blind Pilot, Kati Claborn was sitting on a steadily growing pile of tunes.

As chance would have it, longtime friend and collaborator Erik Clampitt was looking for material and musicians to play a handful of gigs culminating in a show at the San Francisco Old-Time and Bluegrass Festival. Songs were dusted off, friends were gathered, and the music that emerged had a voice and cohesion that immediately resonated with audiences and demanded to be more than a one-off.

The project quickly became a vessel for other members’ back-pocket tunes, giving the music breadth and variety. The band consists of Claborn (banjo, guitar), Clampitt (electric guitar, pedal steel), old-time music veteran Gabrielle Macrae (fiddle, banjo, guitar) and fellow Blind Pilot-ers Luke Ydstie (bass, piano) and Ryan Dobrowski (drums).
