Santa Fe, NM (PRWEB) February 24, 2012
Presented by SantaFe.com and Ski Santa Fe, the 8th annual “Beats on the Basin” concert series features Anthony Leon and The Chain, starting at noon and ending at 3 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 25, at Ski Santa Fe’s Totemoff’s Lodge, located at the midway point of the mountain. Admission to the concert is free to all skiers on the mountain with a lift pass, making this Saturday an affordable, fun event for anyone interested in enjoying the merriment.
Hailing from Virginia, Anthony Leon brings a talent to the stage that is a rarity in these modern days of DJ and music mixing superstars. With a music background coming from almost as far back as one can think, Leon delivers music to his audience that is so heartfelt and so pure that, on occasion, you’ll see him shed a tear when performing a song he wrote that means something extra special to him.
Leon has been writing his own music since he was a child, and at the age of thirteen he recorded his first original piece of music, “Granddaddy’s Guitar,” at Sun Studios in Memphis, Tennessee. Anthony Leon and The Chain transport ability and feeling to the stage that truly moves their growing legion of fans. They are unafraid to sing songs about looking for truth, purpose, love, and about life’s regrets. Leon is truly a great songwriter, and he and his band are talented performers. If you do get to listen to them, you’ll be happy that you did.
The series supports the Adaptive Ski Program, a Santa Fe-based nonprofit devoted to providing safe, supportive ski and snowboard lessons to adults and children living with disabilities. The Adaptive Ski Program is offered at three ski areas in New Mexico including Ski Santa Fe, Sandia Peak Ski Area in Albuquerque and Pajarito Mountain in Los Alamos.
“We are proud to again provide Ski Santa Fe skiers and snowboarders with top-notch musical entertainment during ‘Beats on the Basin,’ said Adaptive Ski Program Director, Katya Franzgen. “This is the fourth year that this concert series has provided support and awareness for the Adaptive Ski Program, which since 1985, has provided access to the thrill and fun of skiing to those individuals living with physical and/or cognitive challenges.”
