Rose Blossoms On A Winter’s Night
Reggae musician Michael Rose, a member of the band Black Uhuru, sings for more than 1,000 people Saturday, Feb. 27, during the first Marley in the Mountains event in Ketchum. The evening began at 5 p.m. with opening band Carlos Jones and the P.L.U.S. Band and finished around 10 p.m. Event organizer and founder Danny Walton, whose catch phrase is “mountain niceness,” said, “It’s amazing what a few ski bums can put together with no support. … It was amazing to see people of all ages—kids to older folks—smiling, getting down and dancing in the snow celebrating reggae music.” More than 50 volunteers helped make Marley in the Mountains a success. The Sun Valley Center for the Arts provided the venue, an open area next to the Ketchum Post Office.
