Montana Skies is coming to the Tillotson Center on Carriage Lane in Colebrook on Monday, July 21. Their name, Montana Skies, is a metaphor for musical freedom, and they continue to follow their creative instincts far beyond traditional boundaries. In concert, these award-winning musicians delve into music from Pink Floyd and Rush to Vivaldi, and “House of the Rising Sun,” as well as their own originals that have been featured everywhere from NPR to the Travel Channel.
Jonathan and Jennifer met while studying music at the University of Georgia. Recognizing a kindred spirit in each other’s devotion to their music, the desire to share music together was ignited immediately. The two assumed they would be performing classical recitals and great works for the cello and guitar; then, in one trip to the library to select music, their whole world of classical intentions came crashing down. The discovery: music written for cello and guitar was as rare as the combination itself–no great classical works existed. What resulted from this new musical freedom of expression between the two was the formation of Montana Skies, and a unique style of music that would garner instant recognition and praise.
Admission is $15 and tickets are now on sale and available at Fiddleheads, 110 Main Street in Colebrook, or by calling 237-9302. Tickets are also available at the door on the night of the concert.
