Walkin' Jim Stoltz's Forever Wild 2006

This last week I attended an excellent concert/slideshow event featuring Walkin' Jim Stoltz. The event was free and sponsored by Idaho Conservation League and Idaho River's United.

Walkin' Jim Stoltz, co-founder of Musicians United to Sustain the Environment (M.U.S.E.), is travelling to all 50 states performing close to 100 free concerts like this one to draw attention to our wilderness heritage - "wild lands, wild waters, and wild lives".

The event included Jim performing live many of his acoustic folk songs about wild lands and wild lives while showing amazing slides from his many long journeys through North America's wild country. I highly recommended it for the photos, for the music, and for the cause!

Information about Jim is available on his web site or on the Forever wild web site. Here is a quick synopsis from the event invitation
Walkin Jim Stoltz has trekked from coast to coast, Mexico to Canada, Yellowstone to the Yukon, from high in the Arctic to deep in the Utah canyons. All those years in the wild places and 26,000 miles of walking have given him a great love and respect for Americas natural beauty. He shares that appreciation in his celebratory show, Forever Wild 2006. Walkin Jim sings in a deep bass voice, plays guitar, and tells stories about his travels while projecting spectacular images of the wilderness he has photographed on his travels.

Go to Forever Wild - 2006 for more information and a schedule of events.
