24 Hours with a Local: Idarado’s Cory Smith

Though originally from Silverton, Colorado, Cory Smith has been living in the Wood River Valley for more than two decades, since he relocated to the area to work for Smith Optics. Prior to that, he was a sponsored snowboarder for K2 and working on Mt. Hood’s skate and snowboard camp Windell’s, which he helped start back in the early ’90s. After blowing out his knee and dashing any hopes of continuing a pro career, he moved to Ketchum, where the scene at the time was “full of skiers, and I was a punk rock snowboarder.” Luckily, he learned to love the town and its people, and when Smith (the company) packed up to move to Portland in 2015, he decided to stay behind and start his digital marketing company, Idarado. Now almost ten years in, Idarado has five full-time employees and works with clients like Traeger, First Lite, Decked, Dickies, and more. Cory lives in Ketchum in a live/work setup with his two teenage daughters and their dog.

Since his self-titled debut in 1986, Lyle Lovett has evolved into one of music’s most vibrant and iconic performers. Among his many accolades, besides the four Grammy Awards, he was given the Americana Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award and was named Texas State Musician.

Songs and Stories with Roger McGuinn

Get up close and personal with the magic of Roger McGuinn’s live performance of Songs and Stories! You’ll be transported by his legendary songs, complemented by stories and anecdotes that will give you a glimpse into the inspiration behind the music. With his iconic voice and unparalleled guitar skills, McGuinn is sure to deliver a night you won’t forget. “Mr. Tambourine Man” not only lived history, he made history with his fearless sense of experimentation. As the leader of the influential 60s group, The Byrds, he was on the leading edge, combining the rock beat of the Beatles with the folk sensibilities of Bob Dylan, to create a genre known as “folk-rock.” His groundbreaking work on The Byrds Sweetheart Of The Rodeo album is widely credited with ushering in the genre of country rock. Roger’s solo career began in 1973 and has yielded 13 albums, a Grammy nomination, and extensive touring and performing that has enthralled audiences ever since. The Byrds 1965 recording of Pete Seeger’s “Turn! Turn! Turn!” has become an iconic American anthem, and is often remembered as one of the most important folk-rock songs of the 1960s.
