The Sounds of the Dolomites

Grant Lee Philips

GRANT LEE PHILIPS
With his unmistakable voice, at times abrasive, at other times dreamily melodic, Grant-Lee Phillips belongs to that category of sophisticated singer-songwriters who give an original slant to traditional American songs, which he reimagines and takes to new horizons. With Grant Lee Buffalo he captivated an entire generation, and when that phase ended he continued to enthral with an extraordinary solo career: with nine albums to his name, the most recent is Widdershins.

Location: Val di Fiemme, Viezzena-Bocche mountain group, Malga Canvere. Between Castelìr and Passo Lusia, woods and pastures look over the peaks of Lagorai mountain chain and Travignolo valley, at the wester border with the Natural Park Paneveggio - Pale di San Martino. You'll be walking on an easy-to-walk forestry road in the wood, surrounded by the most ancient stones of Trentino formed 270 millions of years ago, like those of the near Lagorai. Malga Canvere is a balcony overlooking Pale di San Martino, with its pasture at a short distance from the other malgas. A bit higher, at the foot of Lastè di Lusia, a confused series of small lakes, like pearls of a broken necklace.
