Keeth Apgar is the heart and soul of Harmonica Pocket. He uses an untraditional style of weaving acoustic wah-wah guitar, lush jazz chords, and image-evoking lyrics into intelligent, refreshing pop. He composes music for dance companies and writes musicals, among them a rock opera called The Jigsaw Dog.
Keeth loves to write and perform children’s music. He teaches and performs at schools, festivals, and libraries up and down the west coast. His “Harmonica Pocket Children’s Show” is a mix of original tunes and twists on classic American folk songs, which entertains kids and delights parents by blending music with movement.

Harmonica Pocket’s Lincoln County lodging is provided by La Quinta Inn and Suites in Newport and the D Sands Condominium Hotel in Lincoln City.
