Sounds of the Dolomites (I Suoni delle Dolomiti) is a unique high altitude music festival which brings musicians from across the world to the most beautiful mountains of the Alps. The idea is simple and at the same time fascinating: to combine the passion for music and the mountains, art and the environment, in a concert programme celebrating freedom and nature. Participants set off from the valley floor and head for clearings and hollows near the mountain refuges, natural theatres in which the music is performed in complete harmony with the surroundings. The festival features internationally renowned artists who, instruments on their shoulders, display their shared regard for the environment by joining the public in walking to the concert venues, on what is both an art and a nature trail. It’s the outcome of the cooperation between Trentino Marketing and the Val di Fassa Tourist Board.

Programme: auteur songs.With his unmistakable voice, at times abrasive, at other times dreamily melodic, Grant-Lee Phillips belongs to that category of sophisticated singer-songwriters who give an original slant to traditional American songs, which he reimagines and takes to new horizons. With Grant Lee Buffalo he captivated an entire generation, and when that phase ended he continued to enthral with an extraordinary solo career: with nine albums to his name, the most recent is Widdershins.
