The Gorge music community is mourning the passing of Jim MacMillan, who died July 7. A well-respected songwriter and guitarist, Jim’s trio released two CDs of music he termed evolving or eclectic folk, including “Celilo.” In a 2013 interview MacMillan said, “I have collected photos about Celilo Falls for 30 years. Over the years I have talked with a number of people who were there that day when the Falls disappeared and it always brings tears to my eyes.” Jim was a board member of CGOA and a founding member of VOCI, and was involved in numerous CAST productions. — Jim Drake
