Sun Valley Center for the Arts presents
2017 Winter Concert: An evening with Brett Dennen
Tuesday, January 24, 2017 at 7:00PM
Sun Valley Opera House
1 Sun Valley Road
All seating is reserved for this concert.
Brett Dennen is a nationally known, celebrated singer songwriter who has released 6 albums. He’s played at Austin City Limits, Newport Folk and Telluride Bluegrass Festivals and appeared on Jimmy Kimmel, David Letterman and Conan O’Brien. His songs are carefully crafted, beautiful and often have a wry sense of humor woven into them. His style is unique and reflect the deep influences of being homeschooled and given free creative rein by his parents. He was also deeply impacted by a residential summer camp, Camp Jack Hazard, which he attended as a child and adolescent, worked there as a camp counselor and continues to be a supporter and raise fund to allow students to receive “camperships.”
In addition to his skill as a musician, Brett is an active philanthropist, environmentalist and avid skier. His love of the environment can be tied to the camp located in the heart of the Sierra Nevada Mountains – and has led Dennen to create this “Ski Town” tour of which this stop in Sun Valley is a part. This tour combines Dennen’s love of skiing with his deep concern over the environment and future of resort towns in the face of changing climate. While here Dennen will work with students from the art and ski academy from Community School as a part of The Center’s commitment to bringing professional artists to our students.
“We think it’s time for the whole world to take notice of Brett Dennen’s expert pop songcraft.”
