White Eagle Saloon, Portland OR
In July of 2012, I had the pleasure of accompanying Cliff’s playing on his seven string guitar during a performance that was recorded for an episode of Finding Bigfoot. We performed at a local (reputedly haunted) tavern in Portland called The White Eagle, along with Andy, who also owns a seven string guitar. Both he and Cliff trade bass parts because they can, and it’s cool to be weirdly versatile. Incidently, Finding Bigfoot is now the Number One show on Animal Planet network.

Craig Flippy shot the cover photograph for Kultus. Craig is a film maker. He's very talented and creative. If you haven't seen Bigfoot Road Trip, starring Cliff Barackman and Craig, definitely check it out. Craig produces the videos, and Cliff plays a leading role in storyboarding each episode.
Here is a blogsquatch. Just kidding, it's Guy Edwards. Before the weather turned cold, I took him to a hotspot near Goat Mountain, Oregon. We didn't hear any knocks that day, but the bigfoot "vibe" was strong.
Craig sits in the passenger seat while Cliff drives, and in the driver's seat when it comes to pointing a film camera at Cliff and everything else in bigfoot hot spots. The project is kind of a "two man band." Impressive. If you haven't seen it, definitely order yourself a copy. The tone is light and funny at times, and scholarly at times. A grab bag for the squatch curious and also for the veteran bigfooter. These days, Craig is also a cast member on Finding Bigfoot.
