Skiing Fiddler Andy Reiner and Skiing Bagpiper Axie Blundon pond skim closing day at Arapahoe Basin, 6/12/16.
Our story made the Al’s Blog: “I saw some things today I have never seen before. There was the snowboarder playing his saxophone while riding. There was the skiing fiddle player that skimmed across Lake Reveal while playing his fiddle. Not to be outdone, another skier cruised across the water while playing bagpipes. He didn’t quite make it (and got a little wet). Once the bagpiper crawled to shore, he joined the fiddler for a duet on the North Shore. With just the right amount of inappropriateness, everyone had a great time.”
Sub-zero temperatures and a whole bunch of new fluffy cold snow made for a great run in the park! Plenty of avy danger today so just cruising. It’s been a while since my last skiing post … the Skiing Fiddler is back! (Music: Jighop – Andy Reiner – octave mandolin and vinyl)
Having a blast ski touring in November! Colorado.
Hey friends, I am extraordinarily psyched to announce that I am now the proud owner of http://www.skiingfiddler.com (previously I just had .net and a wordpress!) I am going to be updating this blog far more frequently, including a lot more music (non-skiing) posts, so follow along! To get back into it however, here are 2 skiing videos with original music that didn’t yet make it to this blog yet! One from the winter skiing in Rocky Mountain National Park, and another skiing Quandary Peak (14,265′ elevation!) on June 1st. It’s November, 2015, and I have skied 27 months in a row. Think snow and let’s have a blast this winter!!!
While in Big Sky and Moonlight Basin, my best skiing buddy Nick Economou took a tumble. However his resolve was strong and he came back to do it again! In much more dramatic fashion, I improvised a new song about his adventure and struggles, live in front of an audience, including Nick, at the Bozeman Folklore Society concert series! While not perfect, it is the first totally improvised song and performance of that song that I’ve ever put out into the world. So, the song and video will do the rest of the talking. Enjoy!
