Andy Reiner here, the skiing fiddler. This is my last night before my first ever solo cross country ski bum fiddling tour! I’ll be playing concerts and teaching workshops across the midwest, skiing in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Utah and Colorado. I’m going to try and post as much music and skiing as I can here on this blog! You can always check out more music at my website – www.andyreiner.com Thanks for following my travels! First stop: Dance Flurry Festival in Saratoga Springs, NY with Firecloud Friday February 15.
The recent Storm Nemo dropped almost 3 feet on Lexington and Winchester MA, where I found some extremely soft, and short lines down some conservation land pitches. This is the Brushy Run! This stuff is only skiable 0-1 times a year and these were the best conditions ever – no rocks or coreshots! Music is my new tune Jig of Burrs with Chris Turner on jawharp!
I had the honor of playing the Anchorage Folk Festival in January and got to go skiing! Here’s my favorite run, paired with a new Irish polka that I wrote. Thanks Kenny Powers for showing me Manitoba mountain!
