Matt and Rachel Wilson are ranchers and musicians by trade who live in the tiny town of Silver Lake in the high desert of rural Oregon. On a normal year, half of their income comes from performing live as a musical duo called Wampus Cat. Once COVID-19 hit, that income disappeared and their cupboards went dry. The Wilsons had to sell some horses to get by and work two hours from their home to make ends meet. The Wilsons discuss their journey, hopes, and the silver linings of the pandemic.
