I'm in Kalamazoo today to play a benefit for Follow the Buffalo, Inc. It's a charitable non-profit organization that donates funds, materials, and other items and services, primarily to the Oglala Lakota community on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.
"Our interest is in supporting the preservation of culture, language, and ceremonies to strengthen communities, families and individuals as they cope with the aftermath of colonization and the reservation system."
For this event, we'll be performing songwriters in the round. This means we share the stage with a couple other songwriters and take turns playing a song. It's a style of performing that I don't get to take part in very often, but this is the best kind of space to do it in. There will be three sets throughout the evening. Musicians include:
Rachele Eve Guastella
O Cigano Baggs
A special opening round set by:
TREX ROTH, CARTER & JOEL PIXLEY-FINK!
It all starts at 8PM at Old Dog Tavern.
The suggested Donation is $10, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
