Musical Mountaineers Row into the 2021 Virtual Gala

When we began planning the 2021 Virtual Gala, we knew we wanted to host an outdoor awards show unlike anything we’ve ever done before. Mountaineers Books author and Guinness World Record-holding ocean rower Jordan Hanssen had a musical project that was the perfect fit. Since the pandemic began, Jordan has been inviting musicians to play in his rowboat for his newly-created  TinyBoatSessions. We asked him if he would organize a TinyBoatSession for the auction, and he found the perfect performers for the occasion: The Musical Mountaineers.

This Thursday, April 29, Jordan and his trusty rowboat, Clarabelle, will be joined by Rose Freeman and Anastasia Allison of the Musical Mountaineers for a truly unique musical experience. Until now, only a lucky few have ever seen one of their elusive performances in the wild, where hikers are treated to the soothing sounds of a violin and piano in the backcountry. Rose and Anastasia made their first sunrise performance in Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, and have since been featured in Outside magazine. This dynamic duo are skilled hikers and climbers, active members of the PNW outdoor community, and members of our Everett Branch.

Don’t forget: the online auction is open now! Hurry and place your bids on incredible gear, artwork, vacations, and more before your window of opportunity closes on April 29 at 7:00 pm (PDT).
