LEWIS & CLARK: WEST FOR AMERICA
SAMPLE CLIP - WEST FOR AMERICA LEWIS & CLARK: WEST FOR AMERICA Relive the epic Lewis & Clark expedition of 1804 as the Corps of Discovery began their travel, going more than 8,000 miles - from St. Louis to the Pacific Ocean - to explore the uncharted West in search of the fabled Northwest Passage. In this engaging performance, audiences will learn about the Native Americans who had the most significant interactions with the Lewis and Clark Expedition, the members who made up the Corps of Discovery and the many adventures they experienced.
West For America is as beautiful and bold as the adventure it recreates, as original as the first idea of exploring the American West. History never sounded so good! : Push and Pull the cumbersome keelboat up the Mighty Missouri, discover the thunderous Great Falls, endure the perilous Bitterroot Mountains, passage through The Dalles, and explore the extraordinary personal hardships and struggles of Sacagawea's Prayer and York. It is the human element, the longing for home, the courage in the face of pending disaster - that permeates this passionate musical creation.
MONTANA! Life Under The Big Sky
SAMPLE CLIP: WHEN THE LAND BELONGED TO GOD From its colorful past to the present day, Montana and Glacier National Park have come to symbolize the American West. This unique program captures the spirit and essence of our landscape, the historical characters and important events that helped define Montana. Audiences will discover the rich and diverse traditional culture of Montana’s Native Americans and learn about the twelve tribes indigenous across Montana.
All life has a voice and David honors this in his song, When The Land Belonged To God, inspired by the Blackfeet Creation Tale by the Blackfeet elder, Chewing Black Bones. (http://www.montana.edu/wwwbcc/legend.html) David will also talk about how the Native Americans were essential to the Lewis and Clark Expedition. How cowboys, western artists, homesteaders and pioneers left their mark on the American West. The song, The Great Northern, showcases how the Iron Horse closed a door on one era while opening the frontier for the next generation. And with it, the emergence of Glacier National Park. Listen to David's, Going-To-The-Sun, and relive the danger and arduous tasks the laborers and engineers risked as they created the 52 miles of road up to the Continental Divide. This is one show you won't want to miss!
CABIN SONG - The Alaskan Adventure
SHOW CLIP - HE BELIEVES
CABIN SONG - An Alaskan Homestead Adventure The Homestead Act of 1862 has been called one of the most important pieces of legislation in American history. This program will show how David and his friends were some of the last Americans to homestead in Alaska’s wilderness. The most important lesson learned is that in America, few dreams are beyond reach if you are willing, as the homesteaders were, to “prove up”!
It is also a personal journey as David discovers that his true home lies, not with his southern roots, but out west in Montana.
