Thanks to the fine musicians in the Bozeman based bluegrass band “Flatt Cheddar” I was able to meet a fine banjo player and skier named Andrew Schauer. He showed me around a couple of his favorite areas on and near Bridger Bowl after we played tunes the night before. It was a beautiful sunny day that turned into a snowstorm by the time we were skiing down the final zone. We begin this blog with 2 photos: the first, a dog playing the mandolin. the second, a nice panoramic view from the Bridger Bowl Ridge. And finally, a video proving that I did go skiing! I dug the music from out of the archives – Blue Moose and the Unbuttoned Zippers collaborating with Fribo at Celtic Connections in Glasgow last year! The amazing guitarist Ewan MacPherson wrote this tune “Soft as Snow on Shore Street.” Ewan, if I got that title wrong, I suppose my Scottish accent interpretation is a wee bit off, and maybe you’re better off with this version? Great tune regardless.
