Marc Berger will be performing an outdoor concert at the Crested Butte Library, Thursday, June 9 at 5:30 p.m. Inspired by his lifelong love affair with the American West, RIDE,  Berger’s current release, presents 10 cinematic recordings capturing the vastness and romance of the west’s wide-open spaces. Berger has performed at Austin’s South by Southwest Music Festival and The Kerrville Folk Festival and has opened shows for Bob Dylan and other national acts. His song The Last One was a staple of Richie Havens’ concerts for years, and has been quoted in the New York Times and featured on CBS Evening News.
