Happy new year from Music in the American Wild!

And happy centennial year to the National Park Service! This centennial celebration is the heart of our whole endeavor, and we are thrilled to play a musical part in honoring the amazing spaces our country has protected for the past hundred years - and will hopefully continue to protect for hundreds more!

MAW was recently gifted a suite of carbon fiber string instruments made by Luis and Clark. With these instruments, our string players can go anywhere without fear of damaging their instruments, and this means that we can share our music with more people and travel to farther-flung, wilder places in the national parks and beyond during our summer tour. We are extremely grateful for this amazing gift.

Over the holidays our cellist, Dan Ketter, tested out his brand new Luis and Clark cello on the North Carolina seashore. Here's his new year's gift to you!
