More than two dozen GLTB singer/songwriters and bands will be performing during “Out In The Woods,” a marathon of music on two stages this weekend at Easton Mountain, the gay retreat center north of Albany.
The event was conceived and organized by Steve Sims, who’s become well known in the Out Music worlds as co-host of The Quest of Life, a radio show from WRPI-FM in Troy. Launched in 2004, the broadcast has developed a national following and features interviews by Harris Faddis with “GLTB people who are leading lives of inspiration.” In between Faddis’ discussions with life coaches, therapists, physicians, astrologers and sacred intimates, Sims plays CDs by well known and emerging GLTB artists.
The first annual Out in the Woods is the latest undertaking at Easton Mountain, which was founded in summer 2001 and hosts an array of gay oriented retreats, workshops and gatherings and is the east coast home of the Body Electric School.
Here’s the line-up of artists for Out in the Woods:
