Acclaimed Ghost Light pianist Holly Bowling has announced a second leg to her groundbreaking Wilderness Sessions. The virtual concert tour sees Bowling perform solo at various outdoor locations throughout the United States.
Beginning on Thursday, October 22nd, Bowling will kickoff leg two of the Wilderness Sessions with a performance from Casco Bay, ME. From there, Bowling will continue to release Wilderness Sessions performances, for free, each Thursday on her Facebook page. The October 29th stream will feature a performance from Taos, NM, followed by Breckenridge, CO (11/5); Hardscrabble Mountain, CO (11/12); and Moab, UT (11/19).
“There’s plenty of time to do something different,” said Bowling in a press release. “And I desperately wanted to get outside — that’s where I’ve been feeling most okay during all this. So we’re taking this crazy road trip in a self-contained little camper van and driving my gear out to these wild places and setting up and playing in settings I never in a million years thought I’d get to play music in.”
