Atz Kilcher, singer, songwriter, storyteller, and star of the popular program; Alaska: The Last Frontier. This television series documents the life of the extended Kilcher family who lives in the small rural community of Homer, Alaska. Atz is the patriarch of the Kilcher family who continues to follow a sustainable lifestyle. He lives on the homestead settled by his parents, Yule and Ruth who emigrated from Switzerland in the 1930s.
Recognized as the father of Pop Singer Jewel, Atz is the person who taught her how to yodel. He has been a singer/songwriter all his life performing together with Jewel, including the Grand Ole Opry in 2014. Jewel is also a regular visitor to the Kilcher Homestead.
Atz is connected to the North Country through his wife of nine years. Bonnie Dupree grew up in Fort Covington and Saranac Lake. This relationship to our area and friends at the North Country Showcase have lured Atz to Massena to perform this extraordinary concert. There will be a limited number of Pre-concert tickets available for the VIP Experience. This Up Close and Personal meeting with Atz will include the show, free CD, photo opportunity, and premium seating at the concert. The VIP Experience also includes several songs the other concertgoers will not hear and stories of growing up on the Alaska Homestead.
A portion of the proceeds from the concert and VIP Experience will be donated to the local Wounded Warrior Outdoor Adventures. Atz is a Vietnam Vet.
