The Elders played in Big Sky twice, including in 2018, when this photo was taken. “It's especially sentimental because the great Steve Phillips (on guitar in the photo) passed away in 2020 from COVID complications,” said Brian Hurlbut, executive director of the Arts Council of Big Sky.

Bringing the music back

Legendary guitar riffs; the beat of the drum; powerful, playful and beautiful vocals will once again be heard on summer nights in Big Sky – if all goes well. Those behind Music in the Mountains are vowing to do everything they can to bring the music back.

The connecting power of music extends like a thread throughout the community.

The performance was live streamed on the Arts Council of Big Sky’s Facebook page, which allowed for people across the nation – including students in Madras, Oregon on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation – to enjoy the performance. PHOTOS COURTESY DJ Soikkeli

The art of Supaman

Masked Big Sky kids in Warren Miller Performing Arts Center (WMPAC) were greeted with a beat on an animal skin drum, a prayer spoken in ancient tongue and a man wearing a brightly colored regalia and a full headdress. That man was American Indian rap artist Christian Parrish Takes the Gun, professionally known as Supaman.
