Redbull pro kayaker Steve Fisher brings his award winning kayak travel film to Boise June 18, 2011. Fisher will speak about the film and at the end show the first ever 3D kayak film, a special project funded by Red Bull and Fisher’s production company Fishmunga. The film will feature music by Portland folk duo the “Shook Twins”. The Shook Twins will open the show up with a 40-minute set prior to the film.

More about Steve Fisher: Sometimes a man and a mode of transport are simply made for each other. Such is the case with Steve Fisher and the kayak. Since he started paddling at the age of 6 on the Bushmans River near his rural hometown of Estcourt, South Africa, he’s hit the rapids in nearly 50 countries, conquering twice that many first descents. He’s also won numerous competitions, starred in the documentary Black Book, and fought environment-damaging dam-building near his island home on the Nile River in Uganda. No wonder top pro kayakers have three times voted Steve the world’s best all-arounder. Since transitioning several years ago from the contest scene to exploring the most breathtaking rapids he can find, Steve’s boldest first descent expeditions include the Irrawaddy in Burma, the Salween in China, and the Yarlung TsangPo in Tibet, home of the world’s deepest gorge. Known for his aggressive paddling style, Steve seems almost to attack the waves. “Paddling scared reduces your performance,” he explains. “I move quickly and with purpose.”

The Shook Twins are originally from Sandpoint, ID but now live in Portland, OR. They perform throughout the northwest at various festivals and local bars and concert halls. They have just released a new album titled “Window” April 22.
