Mabon - The 2nd Harvest 2020
September 18-20, 2020
$25 Adults: Friday - Sunday
Ages 12 & Under Free
Special Guest! Mama Gina will be with us this year! Singer/songwriter, fearless storyteller and wanderlust. She will perform for us and offer her workshop - "Personal Meditation Techniques with Frame Drum." With down-to-earth, bluesy vocals, a bit of humor, and straight-ahead, rhythmic, acoustic guitar, djembe and frame drum, she tells the true stories that fall into her head and heart. She sings of our responsibility to nurture both the mundane and the Divine. You'll also meet Nine Toes the Bard, a 15th century Welsh lass who once dealt with a Dragon. She now travels the world, singing tales of love and battle, Pirates and Vikings, damsels and elves, trolls and that wicked Dragon that left her one digit shy. And you'll encounter the intra-galactic Bard, Ava/She Walks the Stars. Come laugh, weep, laugh some more and sing along with Mama Gina and all her alter-egos!
Also performing! LOUIS GAROU and KRISTA CHAPMAN GREEN! For over 40 years, Louis has traveled the South, working, playing and writing. Always observing. And always returning to the shadows of his beloved Appalachia. With his old guitar, he performs his Dark Americana songs which are captivatingly elegant and haunting. KRISTA recently released her first CD and you can sample her music at ChristaChapmanGreen.bandcamp.com
