The Travelers + The Birds @ Breckenridge Arts District + Blue River Plaza | Breckenridge | Colorado | United States

The Travelers (Les Voyageurs) and The Birds (Les Oiseaux) are ethereal, illuminated artworks created from sculpted wire by French artist Cédric Le Borgne. Sitting on roofs, perched in trees or suspended in the air, the human and bird forms react to their environment and create a subtle link between the earth and sky, between dreams and reality.

Presented by Breckenridge Creative Arts, in partnership with Town of Breckenridge.

National Repertory Orchestra: American Splendor @ Riverwalk Center | Breckenridge | Colorado | United States

The NRO brings you American Splendor to benefit the Friends of Dillon Ranger District and in memory of longtime Summit County local, Harriett Bobo.

An unusually versatile musician, Teddy Abrams is the widely-acclaimed Music Director of the Louisville Orchestra and Music Director and Conductor of the Britt Orchestra, as well as an established pianist, clarinetist, and composer. A tireless advocate for the power of music, Abrams continues to foster interdisciplinary collaboration with organizations including the Louisville Ballet, the Center for Interfaith Relations, Oregon Shakespeare Festival, the Speed Art Museum, and the Folger Shakespeare Library.

An accomplished pianist and clarinetist, Abrams has appeared as a soloist with a number of orchestras—including play-conducting the Ravel Piano Concerto with the Jacksonville Symphony in Fall 2013—and has performed chamber music with the St. Petersburg String Quartet, Menahem Pressler, Gilbert Kalish, Time for Three, and John Adams, in addition to annual appearances at the Olympic Music Festival.

Abrams studied conducting with Michael Tilson Thomas, Otto-Werner Mueller, and Ford Lallerstedt at the Curtis Institute of Music, and with David Zinman at the Aspen Music Festival; he was the youngest conducting student ever accepted at both institutions. Abrams is also an award-winning composer and a passionate educator—he has taught at numerous schools throughout the United States. His 2009 Education Concerts with the New World Symphony (featuring the world premiere of one of Abrams’ own orchestral works) were webcast to hundreds of schools throughout South Florida.

Breckenridge Music Presents: Tommy Emmanuel, CGP with Logan Ledger @ Riverwalk Center
Jun 20 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Breckenridge Music Presents: Tommy Emmanuel, CGP with Logan Ledger @ Riverwalk Center | Breckenridge | Colorado | United States

Grammy-nominated guitarist, composer and performer Tommy Emmanuel is distinguished as one of only five musicians handpicked by his mentor, Chet Atkins, as a Certified Guitar Player (CGP). Tommy developed a style of solo guitar playing that encompasses the range of a whole band– simultaneously covering drums, bass, rhythm and lead guitar and a vocal melody. No loop pedals, no overdubs, just one man and ten fingers. While some artists take ten-piece bands on the road and still fill out the sound with backing tracks, Tommy builds a complete sonic world entirely on his own.

“If you like guitar playing, it simply doesn’t get any better than Tommy.” – Jason Isbell

Tommy Emmanuel has achieved enough musical milestones to satisfy several lifetimes. At the age of six, he was touring regional Australia with his family band. By 30, he was a rock n’ roll lead guitarist burning up stadiums in Europe. At 44, he became one of five people ever named a Certified Guitar Player by his idol, music icon Chet Atkins. Today, he plays hundreds of sold-out shows every year from Nashville to Sydney to London. Influenced by the Merle Travis/Chet Atkins fingerstyle of guitar picking, Tommy developed a style of solo guitar playing that encompasses the range of a whole band– covering drums, bass, rhythm and lead guitar and a vocal melody simultaneously. No loop pedals, no overdubs, just one man and ten fingers. While some artists take ten-piece bands on the road and still fill out the sound with backing tracks, Tommy builds a complete sonic world entirely on his own.

 

 

WITH OPENER LOGAN LEDGER

Bay Area-bred singer/songwriter Logan Ledger sets most of his songs in lightless or shadowy spaces: the bottom of the ocean, the abandoned cells of Alcatraz, dreamless bedrooms, desolate streets in the dead of night. Produced by 13-time Grammy winner T Bone Burnett, the Nashville-based artist’s self-titled debut matches his moody noir lyricism with a darkly toned take on country music, a sound that’s stylistically wayward yet deeply grounded in classic songmanship.

 

Ledger’s self-guided musical education began back in the Bay Area, where he first felt compelled to sing after his grandmother introduced him to the music of Roy Orbison. Taking up guitar at age 12, he next began writing songs of his own, along with amassing a huge collection of Smithsonian Folkways CDs. Later, while attending Columbia University, Ledger hosted a bluegrass show on the campus radio station and played in a number of bluegrass bands, then moved to Nashville on a whim not long after graduation.

Although his early days in the city were mostly spent working in bars and playing in cover bands, a spontaneously recorded demo of Ledger’s landed in the hands of Dennis Crouch, who then passed it on to Burnett. In summer 2016, the legendary producer invited Ledger out to L.A., and the two soon started working on Ledger’s debut. Throughout the album, Ledger and Burnett’s immediate chemistry extends to a charmed communion between all the featured musicians. “I love how everyone’s constantly improvising, but without ever getting in anybody else’s way,” Ledger points out. That uninterrupted and possibly transcendent flow is also the desired takeaway for listeners of his debut.

Thomas Dambo: Isak Heartstone @ Trollstigen Trail, Illinois Gulch | Breckenridge | Colorado | United States

After spending the winter in warmer air, Isak is returning to Breckenridge in the spring of 2019 to settle back into the forest.

Due to construction and trail preparation, the Trollstigen Trail, where Isak is located, is closed until mid June (conditions depending). The Trollsteigen Trail is a one-way directional trail and is the only way to visit Isak. Please help us in staying off the trail so the artist and team can prepare the best possible experience for all that come to see Isak.
