Hailing from Seattle, the Polyrhythmics arrive in Big Sky following a show in Carnation, Wash. and then on to Victor, Idaho.

Band of plenty

Lone Peak Lookout: Getting an eight-piece band together must be quite the task. Could you describe how Polyrhythmics came to be? And why the band works so well together? 

Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds.

The bird is the word

Lone Peak Lookout: Your Big Sky performance is the start of a quick tour through the Rockies— Targhee Fest on the July 13 and a performance at Snowbasin Resort on the 15th, before heading back to the East Coast to finish out the summer. What are you looking forward to on your western adventure?

The Muir String Quartet has been performing together for nearly 40 seasons. And they’ve been coming to Big Sky to perform in the Montana Chamber Music Society’s Strings Under the Big Sky for years.

A classic tradition

As Strings Under the Big Sky committee member Marilyn Hill recalls, it was a cold July day for the first-ever event held under a big white tent at the Big Sky Community Park. You could count the number of attendees on both hands.

Choreographer Jennifer Waters leads Emily Graham as Fiona, and a chorus of rats, in Big Sky Broadway’s first ever tap dance number. The show runs two nights, June 22-23, with a 7 p.m. start.

“I’m a Believer”

If you happened past the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center recently, there’s a good chance you heard the song “I’m a Believer” blasting from the speakers. You probably also caught the sound of little tap shoes echoing from the stage, a lot of singing, and a lot of laughter.

NPR buzzing in the background, Big Sky artist Brett Ozment describes some of his work. The wooden bow tie in his hand includes an image he took off the old Big Sky Resort Challenger Lift on a white-out day (see the chairs?). He hopes the bow ties will hit the Montana wedding scene soon. “I wear one at the farmers market, and any time I go to a wedding I’m always sporting one,” Ozment said.

Found while fishing

Big Sky artist Brett Ozment started his creative career far from Montana in an off-the-grid cabin located deep in the woods of the Ozark region of south-central Missouri. It’s a land of spring-fed rivers, black bears, turtles and ticks.
