Pinney Saturday Music Series - presenting Bear in the Forest

Pinney Saturday Music Series - presenting Bear in the Forest

Community Rooms A and B Combined
Saturday, Jul 6, 2024, 11:00am to 12:00pm

The Pinney Saturday Music Series welcomes performers on the first Saturday of the month! (Intended audience is adults, teen, and older children.)

Saturday July 6th, 11am-12pm: Bear in the Forest

Bear In The Forest (a.k.a. Alberto Kanost) hails from Milwaukee, WI, where he found passion in music performance and environmental education. BITF is an attempt to bring those passions together; to use music to reflect the beauty in nature, and remind people of the importance of staying connected to the natural world and their place in it. Some say the songs of Bear In the Forest howl with spiritualism. The sound is built around folk music in the oldest, barest sense: joy and pain and a guitar coming together to produce tones that resonate with ancestral memory.

 

This series is sponsored by The Friends Of Pinney Library
