PORT TOWNSEND –– Carrying on the traveling troubadour tradition of Woody Guthrie or a young Bob Dylan, rough-edged folk singer Robert Sarazin Blake has dedicated his life to trotting the globe, saving souls with rock ’n’ roll.

Blake, who performs 200 shows a year around the world, just released his 10th full-length, independently produced album of punk-infused folk music on his own SameRoomRecords label.

Blake brings his traveling minstrel show and the backup band The Putitalldownina Letters at the Pourhouse, 2231 Washington St., at 5 p.m. today.

For several years, Blake’s Humdinger House was one of the most important all-ages tour stops in the Pacific Northwest, bringing in independent rock bands from around the world.
