The Story of

Kerry Christensen is not your typical yodeler. His concerts and events this year will take him to as many as 23 US states and two or three countries internationally. Kerry spent two years in the country of Austria right out of high school. There he became interested in the alpine yodeling art. After mastering this difficult medium he was asked in l983 to move his six member family to Orlando, Florida and use his yodeling skills at Walt Disney World's Epcot Center. He performed there for almost seven years until 1990.

Today Kerry performs all kinds of corporate, festival, and community concert events. He recently lent his unique classical yodeling talent to a full-length Disney animated feature called "Home on the Range."

Kerry is perhaps the only full time yodeler in the world that specializes in all styles of yodeling. He can be strictly alpine, or he can put on his Stetson hat and do an all-cowboy yodeling show. However, many of Kerry's fans say that their favorite show is when Kerry mixes up the styles. You will hear cowboy, alpine, cajun, Latin, Jewish, Hawaiian, jazz, classical, and his always popular humorous yodeling renditions.

Kerry Christensen
Rocky Mountain Super Yodeler



Kerry Christensen, also known out west as the Rocky Mountain Super Yodeler, is an amazing performer that you have to see (and hear) to believe. He is not only one of the most proficient yodelers in the world, he is a first-class musician and singer as well. Wherever Kerry performs, crowds are amazed with his hilarious yodeling skills, but they marvel just as much at his musicianship and vocals. In addition to his yodeling and singing talents, Kerry masterfully plays unusual instruments such as the accordion, zither, and Alpine horn.

Kerry has performed all over the world to enthusiastic crowds and his voice has been used in major motion pictures and commercials. The Rocky Mountain Super Yodeler was also a featured performer at Walt Disney’s Epcot Center for many years. If you want to spice up your event with a show that people will be talking about long after the curtain goes down, Kerry Christensen and his amazing voice will not disappoint.

Kerry will bring down the house with his singing, musicianship, and of course, his yodeling. Whether it’s blowing his mouth trumpet a la Louis Armstrong, playing the accordion, zither, or Alpine Horn, singing, or yodeling like there’s no tomorrow, Kerry’s show amazes and entertains like no other.

A Little History
Kerry Christensen, one of the world's best Alpine yodelers, was raised on a potato farm in Grace, Idaho and had to wander quite a distance to discover his passion - yodeling! A performer from the tender age of three, he has sung everything from western ballads to barbershop music. It was during his travels to Austria in 1976 however, that he discovered the folk music that would be his life. Armed with recordings of the great yodelers, Kerry returned from Europe, determined to master this ancient art--and he did. While driving the family tractor around and around the potato fields, he practiced 14-15 hours a day. He drove his father crazy and was banished to practicing in the garage--to no avail, as yodeling carries very well. (Remember, it was used to communicate between hillside farms.)

Musical Start
Kerry's first yodeling performance was in 1977, at a major university orientation assembly. His yodeling brought 15,000 or so students to their feet for a standing ovation. Then his career really soared when Disney World in Orlando, Florida hired him to work at the German Pavilion of the Epcot Center in 1984 . He was the Disney World Yodeler from 1984 to1990 and the leader of the night band for the last four of those years.

After his experience at Disney, Kerry headed out on his own and has had great success as one of only two or three professional, full-time yodelers in the United States. You will find him now at various German, Swiss, Austrian, Cowboy, Country and Scandinavian festivals around the U.S. and Canada during the summer.
