A Full Winter Moon
I have now been back from Banff for a little over two weeks... I am still processing the experience.
It was remarkable from start to finish. I can't say enough about how great the program was. Gratitude.
Lovely night at the Tomaquag Museum's Annual Honoring & Cultural Showcase. Many thanks to everyone at Tomaquag! www.tomaquagmuseum.org
And here is a link to a bit of video from the NEFA Idea swap, held in Worcester at Mechanics Hall! A great organization, a wonderful gathering:)
This past week I performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC. To say that this has been a highlight to date, of my performing career is an understatement. To have performed with fellow natives, Dawn Avery and Ty Defoe was an honor.
Many thanks to the Kennedy Center for honoring First Nations Cultures, as part of the inaugural REACH Festival celebrating the expansion of the Kennedy Center.
Summer Solstice News (Pt. 2)
My July schedule will see me back in the UK for a brief tour. I am very excited to be performing at the Summer Tyne Americana Festival on July 21st! Then to Liverpool and a couple of dates in London. This was pulled together rather quickly, so I am not making as many UK stops as I would like but I will be back in the UK next June and will keep you posted!
New music is on the way. I plan on recording later this year and early next.
I am very honored to have been selected for the Western Arts Alliance Native American Launchpad Program!
In August, I will be heading out to LA and in September I will be performing at the Kennedy Center. More on that later!
JULY TOUR DATES
Summer Solstice News
Today ushers in the first official day of summer! For me, this time of year brings back childhoood memories of spending time at my grandfather's home in Aquinnah on Martha's Vineyard, with my Wampanoag family- grandfather, aunts, uncles, cousins and folks who just knew me as Winnie's daughter.
This summer will find me crossing the pond to the UK! I have been selected to showcase at the SummerTyne Americana Festival and will be appearing on the Jumpin' Hot Stage on July 21st @ 12:00 PM.
I will be making a few more UK stops, as well: Liverpool on the 22nd and two dates in London, on the 23rd and 24th.
More exciting news to come...
