Saturday, January 24, 7:00 p.m. “Songs Inspired by Nature”
Join Rocky Mountain National Park staff in welcoming singer/songwriter Brad Fitch as he presents “Songs Inspired by Nature,” a program featuring songs written by him and members of his family. The program will be held at the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center auditorium in Rocky Mountain National Park. Brad will also play songs written by others, such as John Denver, which celebrate the natural world. While most of these songs will be about the Rocky Mountains, some will express experiences and emotions inspired by the ocean.
Brad performs at fairs, concerts, fund-raisers, weddings, picnics, parades, school programs, parties and at cowboy and western music festivals throughout the United States. He and his wife, Kathy, with whom he often performs, are known for their melodic folk music and songs written about the places they have traveled. Visitors to Estes Park from around the country have enjoyed their performances for years.
Brad has performed John Denver tribute concerts as fund-raisers for the Rocky Mountain Nature Association, the City of Fort Collins, Colorado, The Cancer Center of Arizona, the Estes Park Cultural Arts Council and the Estes Park Lions Club.
The theme of the 2009 Lyceum Series is “Celebrate our Natural World: Artists Who Are Inspired by the Environment.” This year’s series has a cultural focus. The presentations will highlight how the natural world influences and inspires artists. Artists of all types: singers, musicians, painters, sculptors, woodcarvers, performance artists, writers, quilters and photographers will be involved in this year’s Lyceum.
The Lyceum schedule runs from January 17 to May 16, 2009. Financial support for the lyceum series is provided by the park’s nonprofit partner, the Rocky Mountain Nature Association. Programs are free and open to the public. They are held at 7:00 p.m. at the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center auditorium in Rocky Mountain National Park.
