I’m en route to Jackson Hole, WY today for my annual working vacation at the Grand Teton Music Festival (GTMF). A truly lovely destination, the Grand Teton National Park is an ideal backdrop for one of the best summer music festivals in the country.
Although it’s not a habit of mine to post media from my travels, I figured that if fellow Inside The Arts blogger Brian Dickie makes a habit of it (check out his recent series of posts), then it isn’t a bad thing. As such, the time at Jackson Hole, WY for the Grand Teton Music Festival (GTMF) was one of the best I can recall over the last decade.
It never ceases to amaze how much perception can change from one individual to the next and even though it’s no secret that a live concert event is a very subjective experience, we don’t always have a chance to read about it from two very divergent views. Yes, there are music critics but there are few surprises in the traditional concert review format. Instead, I’m talking about the story behind the story, such as all of those off stage elements that intertwine with the music.
