Three cheers for Eric Sable‘s talent, discipline and perseverance.

Sable took first place in the instrumental division for playing three harmonicas with a “beatbox vibe” at the National Grange Convention on Nov. 10 at the INB Performing Arts Center in Spokane.

The yearly National Grange’s “Evening of Excellence” showcases talent from all around the United States. This year’s showcased talent also included banjo playing, piano playing, singing, signing, and speaking. Friday Harbor Grange 225, and the two pictured San Juan Island cheerleaders, April Esposito and Jillian Urbach, went to Spokane with Sable.

In June of 2017, Sable represented Friday Harbor Grange 225 at the Washington State Grange Convention held in Ocean Shores, Washington. Sable played the harmonica with a “beatbox vibe.” Sable took first place in that June competition and was chosen to represent Washington State at the National Grange Convention.
