I’ve often thought ski resorts should have more on hill entertainment (mostly busker style musicians, mimes, standups, next to long lift lines on heavy weekends) but having roving entertainers would be pretty cool as well.
This bit of on hill musicianship is just a good use of a commute for the duet Half Pelican. They kept their instruments out after a gig at the Ptarmigan hut deck at Loveland Ski Area, Colorado for Corn Harvest 2018 and played all the way down the hill.
Half Pelican is a pretty cool goal they are working on, they want to play on top of all 36 of Colorado’s 14ers:
– Dr. Joy Adams will perform one of Bach’s 36 cello suite movements.
– Andy and Joy will perform – as a duo and sometimes with special guest Pelicans – fiddle tunes, free improvisations and songs.
Here are examples of their 14,000ft musical stylings:
“Half Pelican (Andy Reiner and Dr. Joy Adams) plays Pre-Historic Americana: cosmic acoustic grooves influenced by Appalachian, Bluegrass, Celtic, Scandinavian and Pre-Historic music. Dance and wiggle to their original and traditional songs and tunes performed on cello, fiddle, octave mandolin, and clawhammer banjo with sweet vocal harmonies!”
