Skip GormanRound the Mountain logoRound the Mountain is a summer monthly program celebrating the Monadnock region. Hosted by Ken Sheldon (of “Frost Heaves: fame, the show features humor, music, and interviews with artists, writers and other folks who make this a wonderful place to live. A regular feature called “From the Attic” highlights some of the fascinating items in the Center’s historical archives. Round the Mountain is designed to appeal to locals as well as visitors, giving them an overview of the area and what this part of New England is all about.

Special guest for this program is Skip Gorman, whose legendary musical diversity includes being a cowboy singer, a Bill Monroe-style mandolin player, and a fiddler in Irish, Scottish, French Canadian, and Appalachian traditions. With over 16 recordings to his credit, he has performed on A Prairie Home Companion, and his music has been featured in several of Ken Burns documentaries. Regardless of what musical genre he is representing, his style is genuine, and his musically impeccable. 

The show will also include an appearance by Gus Kaikkonen, Artistic Director of the Peterborough Players. Ken will be talking with Gus about his extensive career as an actor, director, and playwright—a career that began with his appearance in the original Broadway production of Equus, and has since including many roles on stage and television.
