Artist Ian Munsick uses music to bring relief to Montana ranchers and Yellowstone Park following floods
Back in June, Montana producers and the Yellowstone National Park were ravaged by floods. Park visitors were asked to evacuate, bridges and roads were swept away, and ranchers’ livelihoods were taken. Wyoming artist, Ian Munsick knew he had to do something.
While Wyoming was impacted by the rains, Munsick’s love for The Treasure State drove him to put together a benefit concert.
On August 21st, “Wyoming For Montana” happened. Munsick, Chancey Williams, and Ryan Charles performed at The Old Saloon in Emigrant, Montana. All the ticket proceeds were donated to
Southwest Montana Flood Relief Fund and will go to support ranchers and aid in Yellowstone’s reopening. So far, they have raised more than $50,000 dollars.
“When we heard about that... we really wanted to try and organize an event to help bring relief to that area because we got married there two years ago and we’ve spent a lot of time there. One of our favorite places on earth is, Pray, MT or Emigrant, which is right in the Paradise Valley area. So it’s definitely a special place,” Munsick told Music Mayhem.
