Bluegrass band kicks off climate change event

From a UW press release:

The bluegrass band “Head for the Hills” will perform Wednesday, Jan. 30, at 8 p.m. in the Wyoming Union Skylight lounge. The performance will kick off the University of Wyoming’s climate change symposium scheduled Thursday, Jan. 31, in the Wyoming Union.

The band plays a mixture of homegrown compositions, traditional harmonies and has an “innovative approach to improvisation that reflects the band’s experiences living the mountain life.” Hailing from Fort Collins, Colo., the members use their influence from nature and life experiences to create their unique sound.

The band has played with legendary mandolin player David Grisman, members of the Yonder Mountain String Band, and Benny Galloway and the Wayword Songs.

Preceding the concert is a 6 p.m. “Webinar” (rhymes with “seminar”) that will show students how to make a difference in the fight against global warming.

The event is sponsored by ASUW’s Student Activities Council and is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.
