|Walkin' Jim Stoltz|
We are glad to have Walkin' Jim Stoltz endorsing Montana Guitar Shop. "Keep on making those beautiful guitars." Thats just what we plan on doing Jim.
Folksinger and songwriter (8 cd's), adventurer, long distance back packer, photographer, artist and author, Walkin' Jim Stoltz has taken to the backcountry of North America, walking the last wild places for months at a time, nearly every summer since 1974. His long treks have included journeys from Georgia to Maine along the Appalachian Trail, from Mexico to Canada via three different routes, from coast to coast, Yellowstone to Yukon- well over 25,000 miles in total.
For over thirty years Stoltz has celebrated the natural world through his songs and concerts. It is quite a treat to visually see where he has been (a breathtaking slide show) as he plays guitar and sings about his wonderful adventures.
This year as Walkin' Jim heads out on the long trail he will be bringing along a Snail travel guitar (the Cadillac of travel guitars) so that he might bring good tone and musical inspiration with him. Be sure and check out Walkin' Jim's website at www.walkinjim.com.
We are so sorry to tell you..... Walkin' Jim passed away September 3rd, 2010. We will miss him, he was a very unique and talented man. Rick
