Dispatches from Oregon Country Fair: LP Giobbi on female power and family

LP Giobbi hugs her mom Gayle Giobbi Chisholm in the spot both know well-- behind the KLCC booth at Main Stage of the Oregon Country Fair.

Leah Chisolm's first Oregon Country Fair was in her mother's womb, and she's not missed a single one since then, even going so far as to fly in from outside the US to make the festival.

Today Chisolm is known in electronic music circles as LP Giobbi, and is a world-renowned producer and DJ. She also just headlined Saturday's 2023 Oregon Country Fair Main Stage with her wildly popular Dead House set, where she samples classic rock, jazz, and lot's of Grateful Dead into a party-starting mix of house music.

Ahead of her set LP Giobbi stopped by the KLCC "Hot Tub," our broadcast booth at Oregon Country Fair, for this interview.
