Our Programs


MusEco has an amazing breadth of program areas and, literally, dozens of successful projects and events under its collective belt. Below is a summary of our current program emphasis.

Please visit our Program History page to find out about past MusEco programs and go to Program Incubation page to read about projects that are in planning or development stages.

Wild Resurrection: The Untold Story of the Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness

This 30-minute documentary is our latest and greatest! The film opened on March 27th, 2018 to a standing-room-only crowd at the Art House Cinema in Billings! It was the LARGEST CROWD THEY HAD EVER HAD! We are very proud of the film and the excitement it is generating. Read more about the film HERE!

Upcoming showings that are scheduled in Livingston and Red Lodge, television broadcasts and as-yet-unconfirmed showings in Stillwater County, Bozeman and elsewhere can be tracked on our facebook page for the film.

Green Smarts with the Green Man

Green Smarts with the Green Man is our other main programs. As of this summer (2018) the series will reach its TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY! We are very proud of the series and all laughter and eco-friendly activites its generated for a decade. Read more and link to episodes from our Green Man page! Watch for a new episode due out soon!

Not long ago, we released a COMIC BOOK based on the series! We are very excited about this. The book is being used to supplement our educational outreach efforts in the schools, in libraries, in youth organizations and even with adult learners communities throughout the region.

American Indian Music - Drums, Flutes and much, much more!

American Indian Music, Even More Than Drums and Flutes is a curriculum guide, a Humanities Montana Speakers Bureau talk and a video project all rolled into one! In 2008, in collaboration with Montana's Office of Public Instruction, Scott Prinzing (our Director of Education, coordinator of Native American and music programs) created a curriculum guide that explores the history of the wide variety of contributions of Native American people to the development of popular music in America. Scott has been giving a presentation on this subject since 2006 but is now giving the presentation as part of the Humanities Montana Speakers Bureau. Scott created the Montana Indian Music Profile Series to expand on this work, and we built a website for the series at! The videos can also be viewed on MusEco's Vimeo sites (click HERE) or on the OPI website.

Scott also contributed a chapter about Native American guitar players to Indigenous Pop, a book published in 2016 by the University of Arizona Press!

The Mystique and Meaning of the Mythical Green Man

We are proud to note our other Humanities Montana Speakers Bureau talk, "The Mystique and Meaning of the Green Man," by Kris Prinzing! The Green Man has a long and fascinating history that can be traced through folklore, architectural and art history - he isn't just our invention! This talk explores that history through images, music, literature and theatre - and at times also features appearances by the Green Man (our Green Man!) himself!

The talk is now exclusively available for booking through MusEco! Call us at 406-591-0575 to book it today!

Morning Folk Music Series

This was a very fun project that we created together with the Fieldhouse Cafe in 2013. We brought local musicians and musical acts in to play at the Cafe's Saturday morning brunches. It was very popular and MusEco staff enjoyed listening to the music, eating the food, and at times playing their music (see the Earthshine website) on Saturday mornings!

The endeavor was great fun but pretty labor intensive, so we didn't continue it for another year. But lots of good musical and culinary memories remain!
