Live Mountain Music at the Orchard at Altapass

As part of the Altapass Foundation’s mission to preserve local culture, we offer free live music programs to the public Wednesday through Sunday in May through September, and weekends in October.

These programs serve to educate the public about mountain music and dance, and to encourage people to participate in traditional dance. They also provide an important basis of support for local musicians because every performer and group is paid for each performance. We are only able to provide this service because of financial support from our members and donors. We hope you’ll join us for a lively afternoon of music and dance. While you’re there, please remember to tip the musicians, and consider providing support for the programs by becoming a member of the Altapass Foundation.

Live bands play at the Orchard from May through October. We also offer special performances by professional clogging groups, yodelers, and even a world-champion whistler.
