Yesterday, I wrote about the young Bach walking long distances throughout his German homeland to hear and learn from some of the most famous organists of his day. In the process of my research, I ran across a modern-day story of a walking musician.
In 2014, American cellist, Dane Johansen, walked almost 600 miles through Spain with his cello on his back. He performed and recorded the six Bach Cello Suites in historic churches along the famous Camino de Santiago. In addition to the recordings, a documentary film is in the works.
