I am a professional flutist and classical host at Minnesota Public Radio. My passion is long distance backpacking and I walked 5,000 miles this past year! My presentations meld classical music, breathtaking imagery and video with transformational storytelling.
How happy I am to be able to wander among bushes and herbs, under trees and over rocks; no one can love the country as I love it. Woods, trees and rocks send back the echo that people desire. — Ludwig van Beethoven
Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Mahler, Britten and Bach are just a few of the composers who used walking in nature as a tool for inspiration. Former Classical Minnesota Public Radio host Blissful Hiker Alison Young brought all her favorite musicians along with her, at least figuratively, as she walked two long trails in one year – New Zealand’s Te Araroa and the Pacific Crest Trail in the United States. What surprised and delighted her most while walking, was learning valuable lessons about the creative life – how to stay centered, present, and be her very best self. Trail Angels, it turns out, are everywhere, we just need to know how to recognize them.
Join her for breathtaking photographs and stories of courage and humor – and music – from this spectacular achievement.
