Climate-conscious band plays the soundtrack for today’s snow culture

When Boulder based funk-groove band Salem’s Todd Anders Johnson saw the Protect Our Winters/TGR movie Generations, which shows the impact of climate change on snow culture, he knew he had to promote the film through concerts. The result? The Risan Project, combing live music, ski and snowboard film premiers, and presentations from environmental organizations like Protect Our Winters and SunCore Solar.

“We’ve traveled to so many glaciated environments like Alaska and British Columbia playing ski and snowboard events, that it just felt right to introduce climate change awareness,” Johnson told EO a few hours before the band took the stage in Seattle for the tour’s premier performance.

The tour will stop in the U.S. in Paonia, Telluride, Crested Butte, Park City, Grand Targhee, Durango, Fernie, Golden, Banff, Canmore, Invermere and Whislter. Johnson is most excited about returning to Boulder, where Salem will put on its first fully solar-powered show in Colorado.
