Music As Medicine concert w/ Lydia Violet ~
December 24, 2016
Join Lydia Violet (of Ayla Nereo band) & friends at the incredible Jackson Wellsprings for a special intimate winter concert.
Offering songs from Lydia's new album, Lydia is deeply inspired by folk, blues, and protest traditions. She uses her stunning violin sounds and soulful voice to bring her listeners into deep communion with the beauty of our world. Lydia’s musical inspiration arises from her experience in ecological and social justice activism, participating in the great work of restoring peace and dignity to our world. In the past year she has performed alongside Ayla Nereo, the Polish Ambassador, Wildlight, Rising Appalachia, MaMuse, Elephant Revival, Joanna Macy, HAANA, and several others. From civil right songs to old-fashioned blues to banjo folk vibes, Lydia delights in sharing the medicinal power of music.
"The moment has never been more ripe nor ready for feminine protest music, and there’s a new artist on the scene to deliver a rallying cry. As the human race struggles with both awakening and regressing, and our mother earth suffers, this is an artist called to action in song. On her accessible and engrossing opening salvo, the vibe is at once throwback and contemporary; Violet keeps one foot steeped in tradition, while leaping into the future with panache and grace." - Bee Getz, Compose Yourself Magazine
Invite some friends! This will be a very special night of medicine songs, civil rights songs, and forging individual and commuinity resiliency in our time.
