BRECKENRIDGE Boulder resident and environmental educator Jeff Kagan will be bringing his childrens songs to the South Branch Library in Breck on Saturday afternoon beginning at 2 p.m.The performance is part of a nine-stop walking tour along the 483-mile Colorado Trail. Kagan will be traveling on foot, carrying his guitar, props and camping gear on his back, making stops in the mountain towns for performances.Kagan currently hosts a weekly kids music program though his position with the Open Space and Mountain Parks in Boulder.He said he thought this trek would be a good way to combine my two favorite things hiking and making music with kids.Kagan described his sound as nature music for kids, very Rocky-Mountain based.He said of his message, I do feel strongly about certain environmental issues, but I am very much along the lines of appreciating what exists and natural beauty.A lot of the time, someone who feels passionate about the environment brings up species extinction and global warming … I take the opposite tact.Kagan said his message is optimistic, heres what exists and heres why I love it.Music is one of the finest ways to share my love of natural places and thoughts on the environment, he said.His journey begins in Waterton Canyon before his stop in Breckenridge, then on to Leadville, Twin Lakes, Buena Vista, Salida, Lake City, Silverton and ending in Durango.Kagan released a CD, Rocky Mountain Tunes for Rocky Mountain Kids in April.
