Oregon's Music Scene: As Eclectic as the State Itself

Oregon has been central to the US music scene since the 1960s, when the kids were getting down to garage rock. Fast-forward several decades and Oregon has seen it all: grunge, indie, bluegrass, jazz, and folk. But, in true Oregon style, the state is changing along with the times, and these days you’re as likely to find electronic beats, deep house, and hip-hop as you are to find acoustic music.
