Fireside storytelling at Silverthorne Pavilion features Native American music

Daily Staff Writer

SILVERTHORNE – Local Native American musician and historian Leon Joseph LIttlebird will tell stories around the fire pit at the Silverthorne Pavilion at 7 p.m. Aug. 2. Littlebird is a third generation native of Colorado with roots in both pioneer and Native American cultures. His songwriting and performance styles weave stories into a musical show. In his live performances, Littlebird often plays several instruments including 6- and 12-string guitars, mandolin, keyboards, harmonica and several varieties of Native American flutes. The fireside storytelling series runs every other Monday through Aug. 30 and features local personalities from various Summit County agencies and special “storytelling” guests. The series was designed to blend free summertime entertainment for families while teaching lessons on nature and our forest surroundings. Each evening, families will be treated to storytelling and a lesson that often includes a project or exercise, Butler said. Guests should bring their own lawn chairs or blankets to sit on. Other series dates:– Aug. 16, 7 p.m.: The Silverthorne branch of the Summit County Library will provide storytelling along with Karla Tripp, Silverthorne Town Council member.– Aug. 30, 7p.m.: Lake Dillon Fire Authority and Summit County Ambulance Service join together for an education on careers in public service.
