Mountain man David Beck sings at Sugar Bowl

It’s not hard to imagine David Beck snowshoeing through the towering forests of Donner Summit in the heart of winter to get from his cabin in Cisco Grove to his next gig at Sugar Bowl. Beck performs at the Belt Room Bar on Feb. 17 at 5 p.m. and outside on the Village Deck on March 23 at 12 p.m. Both locations are near the top of the Village Gondola at the classically quaint Norden ski resort. If you don’t have a lift ticket, you can park in Judah lot and walk in 5 to 10 minutes.

The verifiable Tahoe Sierra mountain man is releasing a new single, “Hey Son,” in March. It’s an ode to his boy with a trademark aura of Eddie Vedder meets Johnny Cash on the Pacific Crest Trail. |
