MAIDEN VOYAGE INTO THE WILD

Last week Music in the American Wild traveled to Mammoth Cave, Kentucky, to scout out some cave venues for our upcoming June performances. Mammoth Cave is a magical place, and the folks who work there are warm, dedicated, creative, and wonderful people. MAW director Emlyn Johnson had a fantastic meeting and brainstorming session with a team led by Vickie Carson and Leslie Price of the National Park Service, and Helen Siewers, Director of the Friends of Mammoth Cave. This awesome group of women had so many great ideas about integrating our music into the park and creating an event that will make for a great celebration of the National Park Service centennial.

It was a total delight to tour the caves and test out the incredible acoustics in various locations, and we're so excited about Mammoth Cave being our first national park of the MAW tour. Looking forward to heading back to Kentucky in June!
