The Cyclone Line

In Oklahoma in the 1930’s, “The Cyclone Line” was a name for the telephone when it was used to pass information on the all-important weather; the tornadoes, the elusive rain, and the devastating dust storms. Kat Eggleston has written many songs inspired by her father’s memories of the Oklahoma dustbowl, and the songs have now grown into a play with music. This new work-in-progress will be performed by Kat and Seattle based actor Brian Gunter, directed by former Vashonite Charlotte Tiencken. The Cyclone Line will also have a reading at Seattle Repertory Theatre in June as part of the Northwest Playwrights Alliance.

Kat is an accomplished guitarist and singer/songwriter in the folk, Celtic and traditional music genres, having released five CDs to date. A native of Vashon, Kat spent 20 years in Chicago as a performing singer-songwriter and musical theater artist, returning to her home community of Vashon in 2008 to be close to her beloved father, an inspiration for many of her best songs. Also an actor, teacher and hammered dulcimer player, Kat has been a lead singer with The Otters and with Bohola, and recorded a duo CD with Kate MacLeod.
