Musician and Storyteller of the American West
Songs and Stories of Beer
Featured Brewery: Call To Arms Brewing
Rex Rideout of Time Travel Music will regale the crowd with songs of beer and stories of this essential drink in the United States and Europe. With the date so close to St. Patrick’s Day, he may throw in a wee bit about the Irish as well!
Rex Rideout sings of the American West, from the times of the early explorers, the fur trade, the Civil War and the cattle drive era to the end of the 19th Century.
Rex has performed at countless historic sites and museums across the West playing fiddle, banjo, mandolin and other instruments. His music has been featured on television and radio such as CBS Sunday Morning, museums like the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, the Western American Art collection at the Denver Art Museum and the American Museum of Western Art.
His work is also part of the soundtracks of the four National Park Service visitor center films, the PBS film Badger Clark: Poet Among the Pines and the blockbuster Dreamworks film Cowboys & Aliens.
Rex has studied trades and skills of the 19th Century for more than 30 years, with his strongest interests in woodworking and metalwork with axes and other edge tools. He has been involved in restoring and stabilizing many log buildings and other historic structures.
Rex also appeared as a Golden Beer Talks speaker in 2018!
