Sounds of the Dolomites: Graham Nash
High altitude concerts in Val di Fassa with the best interpreters of the music
Sounds of the Dolomites (I Suoni delle Dolomiti) is a unique high altitude music festival which brings musicians from across the world to the most beautiful mountains of the Alps. The idea is simple and at the same time fascinating: to combine the passion for music and the mountains, art and the environment, in a concert programme celebrating freedom and nature. Participants set off from the valley floor and head for clearings and hollows near the mountain refuges, natural theatres in which the music is performed in complete harmony with the surroundings. The festival features internationally renowned artists who, instruments on their shoulders, display their shared regard for the environment by joining the public in walking to the concert venues, on what is both an art and a nature trail. It’s the outcome of the cooperation between Trentino Marketing and the Val di Fassa Tourist Board.
Sounds of the Dolomites: Graham Nash. An intimate atmosphere for songs and stories. Micheluzzi Refuge - Val Duron (Campitello di Fassa), at 12.00 p.m.
Programme: auteur music. Few have reached the heights of Graham Nash’s remarkable career. The English singer-songwriter and composer, now a naturalised American, has given an impressive contribution to the history of music, first with the Hollies and then with the outstanding Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. At the same time, he has not neglected his own solo career, his latest album being "This Path Tonight" (2016). Accompanying his unmistakable voice there will be Shane Fontayne on guitar and Todd Caldwell on keyboards.
How to get to the Micheluzzi Refuge: from Campitello di Fassa take footpath no. 529 (Via Crucis path) as far as "Pian" then take the forestry track following the signs for Val Duron (walking time 2 hours). On the day of the concert it is possible to go on an excursion accompanied by the local Alpine guides or on an e-MTB excursion accompanied by the local MTB guides (both free for the Val di Fassa Card and Trentino Guest Card holders, the rental of the bike for the e-mtb excursion is against payment).
