Can I Get Fries With That Shake? - Patrick Harrington (music by More Than Physics)
Can I Get Fries With That Shake? - Did I get your attention? I certainly hope so. Because, during this yoga class I will request the attention of the part of you that is living through your best feeling purpose. So whether you are aware of your best feeling purpose as some distant idea or you live through it presently, I would like to speak with that part of you. While for some practitioners that may be quite a large percentage of you, for others that part of you may not not make up a very large percentage of you. If you would like to have that part of you spoken to directly while doing yoga, this class is for you.

Patrick Harrington is living a life that inspires him. A former serial entrepreneur, Patrick once started businesses he thought would earn him enough money to live a life full of meaning and difference-making. He was always searching for the means to an end. It wasn’t until yoga teacher training in 2001 that 17 years later, Patrick is the founder, owner, and Chief Vision Officer of Kindness Yoga, a donation-based collection of studios that hosts scores of teachers and tens of thousands of yoga students annually.he found a way to combine his love of business with an end in itself. Patrick is the father of two girls and a husband. His life has taken on more and more meaning through his committed explorations into his own patterns of – and addictions to – suffering. His classes reflect this intimate and vulnerable process and allow his students and fellow teachers to relate on a level that transforms. It is through his own healing journey and movement towards living his dharma that leads his yoga teaching, parenting, relationships and business. Patrick has taught before tens of thousands of students, lead teacher training and been a mentor to teachers over many years as the owner of Kindness Yoga. “We – as yoga studios and teachers – are not in competition with each other,” he says. “Rather, we are in competition with all the unconscious activities out there.” Patrick believes that yoga will direct culture towards a more awakened strategy of life. He encourages us to wake up to what we want to contribute in this life and “quit messing around and get on with it!”

Radical Consent - Kassandra Brown
Too many of us think we can either have hot spontaneous intimacy (that may turn into rape, pregnancy, or STDs) or clear, consensual communication (that’s safe but B-o-r-i-n-g). In this workshop with laughter, tears, and experiential exercises we’ll learn:


  • What consent is and what it isn’t

  • How to be hot, sexy, spontaneous and safe

  • How to find and honor your inner yes, no, maybe, and (most importantly) “I changed my mind”


You'll leave with a roadmap for creating the hottest, safest, sexiest relationships you've ever had.
This workshop will feature the Wheel of Consent, developed by Betty Martin. Why is consent the key? With consent, anything that two (or more) adults agree to do no matter how kinky or unusual is great. Without consent, anything that one person does with another is potentially abusive no matter how mundane or normal the action.
The presentation will include:


  • When is consent invalid (drunk, high, aroused, etc)

  • How to use the Wheel of Consent in different relationships

  • Language to make consent both sexy and matter-of-fact

  • Partner and small group exercises to practice:

  • Asking for what you want

  • Setting boundaries and keeping them

  • Giving and receiving touch


Kassandra Brown, Professional Cuddler, Coach, and Educator, I believe that consensual touch has the power to change the world and create a kind yet powerful revolution. My work has taken me into being a yoga and meditation teacher, a homebirthing mom, the founder of ParentCoaching.org, a member of Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage, a somatic sex educator, and now a Cuddlist. I love distilling my vast experiences into simple tools that uplift my clients’, friends’, and family’s lives enabling them to connect more deeply with each other, themselves, and the earth.

Authentic Movement - Maria Flegas
Authentic movement is a contemplative practice of moving from a place of impulse~ most often done with the eyes closed, and with a witness. This form is free from agenda or interruption ~ allowing a deep un~sequencing and revealing of the inner animal and mystery. It can offer liberation and sharing of the stories lying below the surface~ yielding to the language of the soft tissues. This form provides a place of deep and delicious satisfaction through inner contact and integration. By engaging what Carl Jung called "the active imagination" you may encounter image, sensation, memory, insight or an awakened dream state. Come dive in! Trust your impulses, be held in an unconditional space, and allow the magic in the environment to infuse you too.
Maria Flegas has been dancing since the womb. She is influenced by her Greek ancestral (ecstatic) dance, as well as many other forms such as Butoh, Yoruban, Modern, Tribal Fusion, and Acro Dance. As a former US gymnast and circus artist, her spirit has a propensity to fly as well as draw influence from deep in her body, the earth~ and stories of origin. Maria loves to facilitate Authentic Movement ~wherein the raw, uninterrupted impulse of the body can emerge from the softest of tissues. She also draws from elemental, ancestral and imagistic influences in facilitating Butoh and Ritual Movement. She is especially excited about working in different landscapes and building a fun and adventurous community experience.

You Bow Your Way, I'll Bow Mine - Bridget Law, Jake Simpson (The Lil Smokies), John Brighton (Old Salt Union), Amanda B. Grapes (Pixie & The Partygrass Boys)
Join Bridget Law (of Elephant Revival), Jake Simpson (of The Lil Smokies) and John Brighton (of Old Salt Union) for a discussion and demonstration of their fiddle styles. Different backgrounds, techniques and preferences can all lead to noticeable differences in the way the instrument can sound when played. Bring your questions and thoughts about this incredible instrument and we will uncover its mysteries together!

Bridget's Waldorf education and backgrounds in dance and music led her to a creative lifestyle from a young age. Learning from a variety of adult female role models pulled her personality beyond what was only available within her family ties. By the time she was in her twenties, she was a recognizable and accepted fiddle player in a genre that at the time was dominated by men. By her early thirties, after extensive national touring, she and her band Elephant Revival, were headlining Red Rocks annually. Now, she's taken a step back to focus on what is most important to her--home. Currently she is building bridges in the Colorado music community for up and coming artists, festivals with a focus on sustainability and collaborations with amazing friends--such as Katie Gray and their endeavor to bring the experience of Empowered Hearts to people who are ready to go deeper. She is never short on opportunities to share her music and can be seen appearing as a special guest or alongside her husband in their band Tierro with Bridget Law. She is also helping with the production of Sister Wind, a festival spotlighting Women artists, on August 26th, 2018.

John Brighton was born into a musical family. His mother, a dental hygienist, played the piano, and his father, a mortician, played the trumpet. At the request of his parents, he began studying the Suzuki violin method at the age of 3. He naturally took to the instrument in grade school, and music became more of a passion and less of a hobby. In high school, he received traditional Western classical training. During this time he performed with many St. Louis area string quartets, orchestras, church groups, and jazz ensembles. John was the member of several local bands, highly sought on both on electric violin and electric bass guitar. After high school, John continued his training at Millikin University and Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, pursuing a degree in music performance. In 2012, he joined Old Salt Union and rapidly became hooked on this thing called 'Bluegrass'. After completing the spring semester at SIUE in 2013, John decided to put his studies on hold to devote all of his time to the band. OSU has been on the road full-time since the Summer of 2013.

From the age of five, Jake Simpson delved into the world of classical fiddling. He soon expanded his repertoire to include a plethora of fiddle styles ranging from bluegrass, country, rock, blues, Western swing, and Appalachian. At 16, Jake was the youngest member inducted into America’s Old-Time Fiddler’s Hall of Fame, and by the time he was 18, Jake had already released five studio albums. Wanting to share his love for fiddle, Jake became an instructor at Rocky Mountain Fiddle Camp for five consecutive years. He is most recently known as the youngest and arguably most fiery member of Montana high-energy, five-piece band, The Lil Smokies.

Amanda B. Grapes is a Salt Lake City-based fiddler, violinist, and composer. Fluent in multiple musical genres, her original music draws from traditional bluegrass, Celtic, Classical, and more. Amanda has been playing the violin/fiddle since the age of two, and picked up fiddling at the age of seven when her family moved to the bluegrass state of Kentucky. Amanda is the fiddlist for Pixie and the Partygrass Boys, and also guests with WE DREAM DAWN and The Good Time Travelers.  Amanda graduated with honors from Furman University with a Bachelor of Science in Earth and Environmental Sciences while simultaneously studying music with Tom Joiner. She won the Furman Concerto Competition and graduated as concertmaster of the Symphony. As a child in Kentucky she won numerous fiddle contests and reentered the contest scene in 2015. She won both Utah State Fiddle Championships (Utah State Instrument Championship and the National Old Time fiddler’s State Contest) and was a finalist (top 5) at the Walnut Valley (Winfield) Old Time Fiddle Championship.

Yoga Nidra - Ashleigh Sergeant (music by More Than Physics)
Yoga Nidra - An all systems "reboot" in preparation for dancing and fun. Spend the entire class lying down. First move through some gentle and deeply effective movements to unwind tight muscles and soothe a stimulated nervous system. Then settle into a savasana position to do a long deep relaxation and meditative practice that will leave you rejuvenated and centered. It's said that 30 minutes of yoga nidra is the equivalent of  2 hours of deep sleep!

Growing up with a yoga teacher as her mother, Ashleigh began her exploration of yoga at an early age, dedicated to the pursuit of healing a lifelong spine condition. Now, living a pain free and spiritually empowered life, Ashleigh is dedicated to sharing the healing power of yoga with the world. As the Head of Yoga Content for Gaia.com, Director of Yoga and Movement for The Envision Festival in Costa Rica, and co-founder of The Ālaya Yoga School, Ashleigh Sergeant also spent five years as the Global Yoga Trainer for Adidas and was honored to be the youngest Certified Anusara Yoga Instructor in the world. Ashleigh’s yoga videos are featured on Gaia.com, Grokker and ShriTV. A regular presenter at the Wanderlust Festival, Ashleigh’s work can also be seen on Mind Body Green, YOGANONYMOUS, Latin Women’s Health and German Yoga Journal.  Ashleigh’s life is a true embodiment of the teachings of yoga. Her life, presence and vibrant way of being in this world are shining examples of her dedicated practice. Steeped in a breadth of knowledge and depth of experience, she has the unique gift of being able to guide her students in a clear, effective and inspiring way. Grounded in a solid foundation of the ancient teachings, Ashleigh continues to be on the leading edge of yoga’s evolution.

Shook Twins
Magic revolves around the number two. Opposite halves define our existence. There’s dark and light, black and white, night and day, yin-and-yang, and so on and so forth.

On their 2017 EP 2, critically acclaimed Idaho-born and Portland-based indie outfit Shook Twins draw on the inherent power of the group’s namesake duo—identical twin sisters Katelyn Shook [vocals, guitar] and Laurie Shook [banjo, vocals]. In early 2017, the pair holed up alone in a room with just two voices and two instruments and cut the seven-song collection live to tape, serving up bare bones renditions of fan favorites, covers, and one new tune entitled “Safe.”

“Musically, it differs from our other studio albums, because it’s just two twins in a room performing on two instruments,” explains Katelyn. “It’s much more raw emotionally and almost vulnerable. It’s nice to hear our growth as a duo and notice our individual grooves. It showcases these songs in a different way than they had been or will be recorded. It’s just a taste of the simplest core of our band: The Shook Twins.”

“It goes back to the very beginning,” adds Laurie. “When we were 18, we started writing songs together, just the two of us. We practiced how to blend our voices and instruments, trying to make our 2 voices and 2 instruments sound like one thing instead of 4 separate pieces. That’s how we started this whole musical life. We wanted to go back to that for a minute and remember.”
The process represents something of a full circle moment for Shook Twins. The group emerged in 2008 with their independent debut You Can Have The Rest followed by Window and 2014’s What We Do—which garnered acclaim from USA Today and more. Organically stirring up a buzz, they engendered fandom in fellow creators such as Langhorne Slim, The Lumineers, Mason Jennings, and iconic best-selling author Neil Gaiman who claimed, “They make music that twines through your soul the way vines cover an abandoned shack in the woods.” Along the way, the full band, including Niko Slice [electric guitar, mandolin, vocals], Barra Brown [drums, vocals, drum pad], and Josh Simon [bass, vocals, electric guitar, synth], has shared bills with everyone from Ryan Adams to The Indigo Girls. Moreover, they graced the stages of High Sierra, Bumbershoot, Hulaween, Floydfest, Summer Camp Music Festival, Oregon County Fair, Fayetteville Roots Festival, Northwest String Summit and many more in addition to performing at Red Rocks alongside Gregory Alan Isakov and Ani DiFranco. Their artful amalgam of folk heart, indie spirit, and alternative energy has effectively captivated fans internationally.

Now, 2 comes to life on the strength of the twins’ own musical union. Penned by a friend named Vance Bergeson, the first single “Mad Scientist” shuffles from rustic instrumentation into cinematic storytelling, weaving together its own mythos.

“Vance is a luthier and a mountain man, and this track is truly his essence,” explains Katelyn. “For some reason, we believed we had something to offer the song as well. We believe it needs to be heard by as many people as possible.”

They strip the What We Do centerpiece “Shake” down to its quaking and quivering acoustic essence. Meanwhile, the 2017 composition “Safe” illuminates their creative strides towards 2018’s forthcoming new full-length, Some Good Lives (recorded with the full band), bridging the past and present with its delicate songcraft and lovelorn lyricism.

“This is a brand new one that we wrote in a cabin by Mt. Hood recently,” explains Laurie. “It’s been a long year of unsure love in my life, so I resonated with the hook that Katelyn started singing while I was eating breakfast. It grew from there as a collaboration.”

As Shook Twins hit the road in support of 2 and ready their next body of work, their bond extends to listeners everywhere.
“I want people to feel like they know us,” concludes Laurie. “I hope it’s like we’re friends, and we’re just hanging out comfortably in our living room together.”
“If you’re a music listener and supporter, you make ALL the different to us,” Katelyn leaves off. “It would be a pretty pointless job, if you weren’t there.”

The Intimacy Lab is a held space for personal and relational exploration, learning, and a deep oxytocin dive. This lab is designed to support it's participants in giving voice to inner desires, deep listening, and feeling more personal and shared intimacy with greater trust and confidence.
Greg Hill resides in Boulder, Colorado and spends his free time working on Intimacy Lab, yoga, contact improv, authentic relating, and massage as well as dancing, biking, and skiing.. With 20 years in the IT field, Greg developed patience, attention to detail, and intuitive problem-solving. He also acquired training in massage techniques and operated an Asian bodywork school, which instilled in him complementary skills of non-linear thinking and intuition about human nature and the universe. Greg’s education in climate change, permaculture and biomimicry, and leadership roles in restoration projects taught him the interconnection between our relationship to Gaia and environmental health. Due to a degenerative eye condition resulting in gradual blindness, Greg sees better peripherally, giving him a “wide-angled” world view. This unique view drives him to see the world with a “soft focus”, or via the parasympathetic system, informing his view of the natural world and in non-verbal interpersonal interactions.

When meeting others, Rachel Prairie brings this deep sense of self, and this deep trust in Nature, supporting others in intuitive myofascial, integrative, visceral and cranial bodywork sessions. Her bodywork, sustained by fluid feminine listening, is punctuated by tutorship in The School of Disappearance, BodyMind Somanautics, the Barral Institute, Kaiut Yoga International and the Boulder College of Massage Therapy. Her private practice, Prairie Ocean Bodywork, is located in the quiet heart of Niwot CO. Daily, Rachel Prairie dreams of building temples to stillness and rebuilding the good green earth.

Proximity
Proximity, the hip-hop conglomerate from Denver Colorado is a group driven from life experiences and a strong passion for music. This Colorado based collaborative movement consists of two innovative MC’s and a classic hip-hop DJ. Provoke and Grafik craft positive yet conscious lyrics that everyone can relate with while J Steele applies the backbone to their live performance implemented with classic vinyl samples, and the cuts with hand speed that wink to the old school era.

In 2003 Provoke and Grafik pulled their talents together to create “Proximity Minds” an 18 track self-titled album that sold over 500 copies locally in its 2005 release. It wasn’t long before this trio was added as main support for national acts such as Jurassic 5, Swollen Members, and Nas. In 2006 Proximity took their show on the road performing throughout Colorado and the Midwest region. After creating a buzz on tour Proximity moved forward with their sophomore album “When Push Comes to Shove” in 2007.

Shortly after the group took a hiatus from the road and studio to restructure their personal lives and focus on the future planning of the next album. This ground-breaking project declared the arrival of a significant new force in Colorado hip-hop. In March of 2014 Lead by Example took their loyal fans by storm and raised flags from national media outlets such as LyricallyFit.com. Bursting out of their scene Proximity signed the dotted line and joined forces with Universal Language. An independent record label with similar sounding artists such as world renowned Windchill and Nieve. This was a perfect fit and a building block for the group’s future success.

A few months later under the new regime of Universal Language, Proximity released “The Shock Therapy EP.” Electronically infused beats with a classic hard core hip-hop vibe, this masterpiece caught the attention of a whole new group of listeners and broke them onto the world wide scale. With all these exceptional accolades, Proximity has not only risen to the top of Colorado hip-hop, but has cemented themselves a place at the very forefront of the music industry.

Pepper
For Pepper paying homage to their roots is essential over a decade in to their celebrated career. The Southern California trio, who formed in 1997 and moved to the mainland from the three musicians’ hometown of Kailua-Kona, Hawaii in 1999, know that where they come from should always be infused in the music they create. On Ohana, the group’s seventh full-length album (4/29/16, LAW Records), Pepper embraces the feelings and sounds that encouraged them to become a band in the first place.

“Over our past few albums, we had been departing from our original sound and exploring new directions,” Bret notes. “On this album, we wanted to come back to our classic style and revisit our roots. The writing and recording process was a conscious effort to do that.”

“We wanted to strip the band down to its natural state,” Kaleo adds. “We’ve always been a three-piece band with good songs and energy and our goal was to showcase that. We’re all were really pleased with how the music came out and how it conveys the strengths of our band.”

It was important to the musicians to self-produce Ohana, which marks the first time Pepper has helmed the production of one of their albums. From their 2000 debut Give’n It to their 2006 standout album No Shame, which was recorded with 311’s Nick Hexum, No Doubt’s Tony Kanal and Butthole Surfers’ Paul Leary, Pepper has explored various methods of recording, always hoping to embody not only their signature style of music but their lifestyle in the songs. Ohana was recorded last fall in the band’s own Kona Inn Recording Studio in Redondo Beach. The building is the former home of Pennywise’s Stall #2 studio and embodies a positive vibe for Pepper, who have recently begun recording other artists in the space.

“It was time for us to take the reins,” Bret says. “We’ve been through the process with several really cool producers in the past and we’ve learned a lot from them. We have the knowledge now and it’s about not being complacent anymore. We wanted to do it ourselves, so it’s from our family to yours.”

“I really wanted to simplify everything and not overthink things,” Yesod adds. “We wanted to go jam in a room and hit record. I think we found a great balance in the studio and the end result was pure Pepper, condensed down to its purest form. It was really gratifying to be in control of the process from start to finish and know that we created every aspect of the album.”

The resulting album features Pepper’s surf rock songs, showcasing the upbeat, positive vibe elements that make the band so beloved by their fans. There is, as usual, an ever-present sense of sunshine throughout the tracks, bolstering the music’s sense of optimism. The party anthems, the beach hang melodies, the boisterous rhythms are all there, each song carefully crafted to best express sunny moments by the ocean. “Vacation,” a fun, upbeat reggae-tinged number, was co-written by Bret and production duo Diji Parq and seems, to the band, like “the Beach Boys at their goofiest.” The soulful “Never Ending Summer” is about taking full advantage of something before it ends while “Wait” evolved throughout the writing process and eventually became a propulsive crooner that feels like signature Pepper.

“Every song on this album is a great example of what we wanted to do,” Kaleo says. “That’s why there are only ten of them. We wanted to give the music our concentrated, focused attention. It’s not about the singles, but about being a whole piece. That’s why we gave it the most powerful name we know.”

“Growing up in Hawaii your Ohana defines you,” Yesod says. “It is you. And it’s not just family through blood – it’s family through spirithood, brotherhood and sisterhood. Ohana is truly the strongest bond that can ever be made. It’s how we feel about each other as friends and as a band, and we wanted that spirit to come through in the music itself. These songs come together to create their own version of Ohana.”

Over the years, Pepper have toured extensively with groups like 311, Slightly Stoopid, Flogging Molly and Sublime With Rome, and spent several summers on Warped Tour – and this live sensibility shows on the album, released on the group’s own LAW Records. The band’s music – both live and on their releases – is really about enjoying life and being grateful for each experience. They want to give their all to every performance and share their passion with their fans and with younger artists.

“We’re still growing a lot,” Bret says. “Our live show continues to improve and evolve and we always give it our all onstage. We have so much fun playing, even all these years later. And we’ve gotten to work and tour with so many different artists. We’ve learned a lot from them. Everything we do is done from love. We feel good to all be sitting at a table, laughing, twenty years later. It’s the three of us, just like when we were kids. Because we were together long before we were a band and we’re still such good friends. We can’t stop doing this and we don’t want to ever stop enjoying it.”

Old Salt Union
A great band is more than the proverbial sum of its parts, and in the pursuit of becoming something that can cut through the clutter of YouTube stars and contest show runner-ups, a great roots music band must become a way of life. Less likely to rely on production or image, they’ve got to connect with their audience only through the craftsmanship of their songs, the energy they channel on the stage and the story that brings them together.
Old Salt Union is a string band founded by a horticulturist, cultivated by classically trained musicians, and fueled by a vocalist/bass player who is also a hip-hop producer with a fondness for the Four Freshmen. It is this collision of styles and musical vocabularies that informs their fresh approach to bluegrass and gives them an electric live performance vibe that seems to pull more from Vaudeville than the front porch.
In 2015 they won the FreshGrass Band contest and found the perfect collaborator in Compass Records co-founder and GRAMMY winning banjoist and composer, Alison Brown, whose attention to detail and high standards pushed the group to develop their influences from beyond a vocabulary to pull from during improvisation and into the foundation of something truly compelling in the roots music landscape.

Violinist John Brighton mentions some names familiar to the Compass roster as key influences, musicians like Darol Anger, Edgar Meyer, Mike Marshall and Mark O’Connor, all of whom have collaborated with Brown in the past. Primary vocalist and bassist, Jesse Farrar (for the indie rock heads – yes, he’s related – Son Volt front man Jay Farrar is Jesse’s uncle) brings an alternative rock spirit as well as his unique formative experiences as a hip hop producer and bass player for a national tour of The Four Freshmen. The band’s self-titled Compass debut combines these instrumental proclivities with pop melodies and harmonies into a coherent piece of work that carves out a road-less-travelled for the band in the now crowded roots music genre.

Ayla Nereo
“One of the most poignant voices currently floating about… Ayla Nereo is an otherworldly artist who shares the fruits of her soul.” ~ The Huffington Post

Ayla Nereo’s songs are like beacons of possibility amidst a changing and unpredictable world. With a voice that has the uncanny ability to disarm and crack open the heart, Ayla is an artist you feel is singing directly from her Soul, for what she truly believes in, and for the beauty of life itself.
With an array of loop-pedals by her side, she builds layer upon layer of vocal melodies into fierce, sweeping harmonies and weaves syncopated threads of guitar, kalimba, piano, and percussion into each live performance. Her lucid storytelling and lyrical imagery are water for the thirsty soul; words and sounds that crack open the heart, and embody the many folds of our own selves.
Most often compared to Joni Mitchell, but with arrangements and stage presence closer to Aurora or Imogen Heap, Ayla’s vocal melodies, timeless lyrics, and fingerpicking guitar songs harken back to an earlier era — yet she always rides the line between genres, weaving in live vocal looping, beats and percussion, orchestral string arrangements, celtic melodies, and even dashes of hip-hop wordplay, so that her songwriting and sound ultimately cannot be compared to anyone else.
She beams a fierce and pure love from the stage, and each performance is a deeply moving experience; an enchanting and poignant journey that holds you by the heart and doesn’t let go.

Stick Figure
From the musical imagination of Scott Woodruff emerges a vibrant sonic soundscape, revealed in the newest Stick Figure release, Set in Stone. As with his previous releases, Set in Stone was written, produced and recorded by Woodruff, a self-taught musician.

An intuitive and accomplished producer, Woodruff crafts authentic artistry from the foundation of roots-dub reggae. Cavernous grooves, sparkling electronic orchestration and thick rhythms; songs and sounds that have incubated in a studio cabin in the woods near Santa Cruz, CA, where Woodruff found solace excavating a foundation and constructing a studio, all in preparation for his most ambitious recording to date. When completed, a brotherhood of hard-jamming musicians delivers this widescreen soundtrack in concert performances of consciousness-altering emancipation.

The band’s audience of dedicated fans is expanding. The 14-song Set in Stone – three years in the making – enters at Number One on the Billboard and iTunes Reggae Charts. Built on the hypnotic rhythms and the instantly singable choruses that are Stick Figure trademarks, the newest songs navigate a complex emotional spectrum from pensive introspection to joyful celebration.

The evolution of the artist most often portrayed as a one-man band has its genesis in Duxbury, Massachusetts. An avid music fan who in high school traded bootleg CDs of his favorite artist’s unreleased demos, Scott began recording a series of albums under the moniker of Stick Figure, well before achieving worldwide acclaim or embracing the demand to play live shows.

From his debut, The Sound of My Addiction, Scott’s handcrafted music connected with a community of avid listeners who discovered him exclusively by word of mouth and social media. Selling tens of thousands of copies of each of his self-produced releases allowed him travel the world in pursuit of meaning and experience. Scott moved to San Diego, CA where his recording career continued to blossom with its DIY ethic intact. As recently as 2012, he was putting up his own posters for Burial Ground at the California Roots Festival. Two years later, Stick Figure was commanding center stage at the massive event.

Preceding Set in Stone, Stick Figure has released five albums, all recorded solo, with Woodruff laying down the tracks one by one. The current live band line-up features Kevin Bong (KBong) on keyboards, Johnny Cosmic on guitar, Kevin Offitzer on drums and bassist Tommy Suliman, with Scott upfront on guitar and vocals. Cutting a powerful path through the club, concert and ultimately the festival circuit, the band has toured with Slightly Stoopid, Rebelution, Dirty Heads, Collie Buddz, The Green and Tribal Seeds, and headlined their first national tour in 2014 with many of the shows selling out completely, including the band’s appearance at the iconic Roxy Theater in West Hollywood, CA where tickets were gone two weeks prior to the concert.

With Woodruff as the genial on-stage figurehead, Stick Figure concerts are gatherings distinguished by extended improvisational interludes, the mind-manifesting hues of a light show, and the much-anticipated entrance of the band’s canine mascot, a rescued Australian Shepherd, Cocoa The Tour Dog. The release of Set in Stone is a culmination of a journey that has seen the producer go from a mysterious figure to becoming a major player in the scene, virtually inventing a melodic subgenre, at a time reggae is reaching new heights of popularity.

Slightly Stoopid
Slightly Stoopid, the Ocean Beach, California based group led by co-founders and multi-instrumentalists Kyle McDonald and Miles Doughty, along with drummer Ryan “Rymo” Moran; percussionist Oguer “OG” Ocon; saxophonist Daniel “Dela” Delacruz; keyboardist Paul Wolstencroft; trumpet and trombone player Andy Geib; plus special guest and “unofficial 8th member” Karl Denson (The Rolling Stones/Greyboy Allstars) on saxophone unveiled their latest musical experiment Meanwhile… Back at the Lab through the band’s own Stoopid Records on June 30th.

The sessions for Meanwhile… Back at the Lab began in late 2013, shortly following the band’s seventh studio release Top Of The World. The forthcoming album was recorded at the band’s studio, as well as at Platinum Sound, NYC; Rivas Studios, L.A.; Mixdown Town LBC, Long Beach, CA; and was self-produced by the band along with The Lab’s in-house audio engineering maestro James Wisner with the help of Jerry Wonda (The Fugees, Wyclef Jean) engineered an impromptu late night/early morning session at Platinum Sound, yielding the collaborative “Come Around.” Back home, Kyle and Miles also called on their long-time friends and Southern California music icons, Michael “Miguel” Happoldt and Marshall “Ras MG” Goodman, to produce standout tracks “Life Rolls On” and “The Prophet.”

“We’re a touring act, and we’ve been on the road pretty much non-stop over the last decade,” explains Doughty, offering that the band’s own local recording studio and rehearsal clubhouse “The Lab at Stoopid Studios” (within the warehouse district of Mission Valley just inland of Ocean Beach), is a key ingredient of what keeps the band’s sound fresh. In fact, the title and album cover reference the band’s collective escape from touring where they have been working on numerous creative and collaborative projects.

“Over the last several years we started our own studio and invested into innovations and equipment, upgrades in a quest to capture and progress our ideal signature sound. Having our own studio really enables us to make records at our own pace and to make the right records, hopefully (with a grin) at various stages of our career,” Doughty continues. “What’s nice about having our own environment to record in, and analyze the music, is it really lets us keep an organic feel. For Slightly Stoopid, I feel like it’s a step into the next level, as far as understanding the process of recording, understanding the process of songwriting. We took everything that we’ve learned over the years and really put it into this place and into our music.” The property also houses the creative loft space that has become the official offices Stoopid Records, which issued the band’s third album in 2000, Acoustic Roots, and has continued to be their preferred method of distributing the band’s recorded material.

“We started Stoopid Records around 1999,” Doughty clarifies. “At that time, we were in transition as far as what we were doing with our records, and we thought it would be good to have our own independent label—like Sublime showed us back in the day with Skunk Records. What’s nice is we’ve had a following with the fans, where people understand that Stoopid Records is Slightly Stoopid, as well as other bands we want to help break out.”

“For us, it was a big turning point as far as having complete creative control over everything we do. That’s something big for this band—we want to make the music for ourselves and for our fans. We don’t really make music for someone in an office that tells us something needs to be there. We’ve always had a very organic, do-it-yourself attitude. I think it’s paid off in dividends.”

Nearly two decades into their artistry, Slightly Stoopid continues to progress into new musical territory, defining their signature sound while creating a contagious feel-good vibe that has its own lifestyle and subculture… and it’s been done entirely on their own terms.

Shook Twins
Magic revolves around the number two. Opposite halves define our existence. There’s dark and light, black and white, night and day, yin-and-yang, and so on and so forth.

On their 2017 EP 2, critically acclaimed Idaho-born and Portland-based indie outfit Shook Twins draw on the inherent power of the group’s namesake duo—identical twin sisters Katelyn Shook [vocals, guitar] and Laurie Shook [banjo, vocals]. In early 2017, the pair holed up alone in a room with just two voices and two instruments and cut the seven-song collection live to tape, serving up bare bones renditions of fan favorites, covers, and one new tune entitled “Safe.”

“Musically, it differs from our other studio albums, because it’s just two twins in a room performing on two instruments,” explains Katelyn. “It’s much more raw emotionally and almost vulnerable. It’s nice to hear our growth as a duo and notice our individual grooves. It showcases these songs in a different way than they had been or will be recorded. It’s just a taste of the simplest core of our band: The Shook Twins.”

“It goes back to the very beginning,” adds Laurie. “When we were 18, we started writing songs together, just the two of us. We practiced how to blend our voices and instruments, trying to make our 2 voices and 2 instruments sound like one thing instead of 4 separate pieces. That’s how we started this whole musical life. We wanted to go back to that for a minute and remember.”
The process represents something of a full circle moment for Shook Twins. The group emerged in 2008 with their independent debut You Can Have The Rest followed by Window and 2014’s What We Do—which garnered acclaim from USA Today and more. Organically stirring up a buzz, they engendered fandom in fellow creators such as Langhorne Slim, The Lumineers, Mason Jennings, and iconic best-selling author Neil Gaiman who claimed, “They make music that twines through your soul the way vines cover an abandoned shack in the woods.” Along the way, the full band, including Niko Slice [electric guitar, mandolin, vocals], Barra Brown [drums, vocals, drum pad], and Josh Simon [bass, vocals, electric guitar, synth], has shared bills with everyone from Ryan Adams to The Indigo Girls. Moreover, they graced the stages of High Sierra, Bumbershoot, Hulaween, Floydfest, Summer Camp Music Festival, Oregon County Fair, Fayetteville Roots Festival, Northwest String Summit and many more in addition to performing at Red Rocks alongside Gregory Alan Isakov and Ani DiFranco. Their artful amalgam of folk heart, indie spirit, and alternative energy has effectively captivated fans internationally.

Now, 2 comes to life on the strength of the twins’ own musical union. Penned by a friend named Vance Bergeson, the first single “Mad Scientist” shuffles from rustic instrumentation into cinematic storytelling, weaving together its own mythos.

“Vance is a luthier and a mountain man, and this track is truly his essence,” explains Katelyn. “For some reason, we believed we had something to offer the song as well. We believe it needs to be heard by as many people as possible.”

They strip the What We Do centerpiece “Shake” down to its quaking and quivering acoustic essence. Meanwhile, the 2017 composition “Safe” illuminates their creative strides towards 2018’s forthcoming new full-length, Some Good Lives (recorded with the full band), bridging the past and present with its delicate songcraft and lovelorn lyricism.

“This is a brand new one that we wrote in a cabin by Mt. Hood recently,” explains Laurie. “It’s been a long year of unsure love in my life, so I resonated with the hook that Katelyn started singing while I was eating breakfast. It grew from there as a collaboration.”

As Shook Twins hit the road in support of 2 and ready their next body of work, their bond extends to listeners everywhere.
“I want people to feel like they know us,” concludes Laurie. “I hope it’s like we’re friends, and we’re just hanging out comfortably in our living room together.”

Ott.
Ott has been messing about with sound boxes every day for as long as he can remember. Having spent the ‘90s flitting between his day-job as a freelance studio engineer and long weekends under the stars at psychedelic trance parties, the obvious next step, as the millennium turned, was to create music of his own from the jumble of sounds which filled his head.

After teaming up with Twisted Records, 2002 saw the release of the acclaimed ‘Hallucinogen In Dub’ album, followed in short order by his first solo effort, ‘Blumenkraft’ in 2003. 2008 saw the release of ‘Skylon’ and in 2011 the album ‘Mir’ was born.

A pattern has formed: every four years or so an album coalesces from the chaos, heads out into the world and takes on a life of its own. 2015 was one of those years.

Financed by a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign, Ott built a new studio, filled it with vintage sound-creation toys and locked the door, vowing not to emerge until a new record was born. The original 6 month deadline came and went but, a year after he started, the thing is finished.
August 11th, 2015 saw the release of Ott’s latest studio album – ‘Fairchild’!
Lookout in Fall 2018 for the much anticipated new full length album!

The Wooks
Energetically honoring the sound of traditional bluegrass and mountain music, with threads of singer-songwriter, rock, and jam band music woven throughout, The Wooks are as at home on a festival stage as they are in a barn in the heart of Kentucky’s horse country. The Wooks: Aaron Bibelhauser (Banjo), CJ Cain (Lead Guitar), Arthur Hancock (Guitar), Roddy Puckett (Bass), were born over some 20 years time somewhere between an Irish pub, an IBMA Songwriter Showcase, and a festival jam circle. Inspired by legends and trailblazers like Crowe, Whitley, Simpson, Bush, Stapleton, and Rice who cut their teeth on stages throughout the Bluegrass Region, The Wooks translate the sights and sounds of the people, hills, bars, roads, and creeks around them into songs and shows that captivate. With both respect for their heritage and innovative originality, The Wooks are the natural evolution of a sound that has always been there.

Peace Qigong - Kathleen McGoey
Peace is within us, each and every moment. Let's gather as a community for an embodied experience that restores vitality, clarity, and peace through movement, visualization, and breath. Qigong (chee-gung) is a simple practice of moving energy intentionally through your body and beyond, and requires no previous experience. In peace qigong, you will sense your heartbeat connected to the heartbeat of mother earth, resonating with the heartbeat of all living beings. As you are guided through this form, you will experience harmonization of energies within and around you. This gentle method will help you feel centered and clear, and support our Arise experience by enhancing and uniting our shared intentions, vision, and compassion.
Kathleen McGoey began practicing qigong (chee-gung), a Daoist movement meditation, to grow in trust, joy, and freedom. Qigong helps to open physical and energetic pathways in the body through gentle movement, guided breath, and visualization. Practitioners experience increased vitality, relaxation, improved circulation, and better overall physical and emotional health. In this class, you will learn simple sequences that you can practice at home or in nature, and experience profound changes in your wellness. Kathleen is on an evolving journey as a peacemaker and has found qigong to be an important practice for integrating inner and outer experiences, and coming to rest in her center while also yielding to change. This discovery led her to write a book, Harmonizing Heavens and Earth: A Daoist Shamanic Approach to Elicitive Peacework, which explores her personal experiences with qigong, and draws connections to how qigong helps us develop skills for transforming conflict. Currently, Kathleen applies this practice in the field of restorative justice. She is the director of Longmont Community Justice Partnership, where she facilitates peacemaking processes and trains others in restorative justice practices. Kathleen is a member of the Lazuli Daoist Dipper Arts School, and an ordained Daoshi.

Laughter Yoga consists of aerobic and playful laughter exercises, deep breathing, and embodied stretching designed to stimulate the diaphragm and the flow of oxygen through your body for enhanced physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
By releasing tension, stress, and overwhelm we allow our resiliency to re-surface and our perspective to shift. Laughter provides a much needed catharsis for our emotional bodies and it’s FUN!
Jennifer Lennon is a certified Laughter Yoga leader and has been teaching in Boulder, CO since 2010. Her classes, workshops, and laughter sessions are fun, energizing, and uplifting. Jennifer’s perspective is one of heart and humor and she feels strongly that we are living in an intelligent and responsive universe and that as individuals we are deeply resourced. She believes that Laughter Yoga is a tremendously effective way to release tension in a positive manner with results that are immediate and speak for themselves.

Beyond Equality and Inclusion: Reimagining our Vision of Social Change - Sam Bullington
The imagined destination for social justice in U.S. society is often termed as “equality” and “inclusion” but what are the power dynamics inherent in this model? Such models are based on assimilation into a dysfunctional mainstream, which requires marginalized peoples to become more like privileged folks and doesn’t require privileged folks to change at all. Their role is “helping” marginalized folks become more like them, which will only bolster their dominance in society and perpetually create new outsider groups. I instead call for a decentering framework to prioritize marginalized voices/well-being and point to the need for change within privileged communities—for their own happiness, in addition to a more just society. Sam Bullington is a college professor, writer and public speaker, shamanic counselor and healer, and founder and director of Phoenix, Colorado's Transgender Community Choir.

Transformation Through Trust - Connie Baxter Marlow and Andrew Cameron Bailey
Paradigm-shifters Andrew Cameron Bailey and Connie Baxter Marlow are visionary filmmakers, futurists and social philosophers who envision a positive future for humanity. Coming from divergent life experiences, they have reached similar conclusions: the prevailing paradigm is missing important information about the nature of reality. They challenge a number of basic assumptions which have driven humanity’s behavior for millennia.
Connie and Andrew speak from a reality in which the following assumptions are absolute: we live in an infinitely conscious, loving, inter-connected, and abundant Universe where free will and the power of our consciousness create the life we experience.

Empowered Hearts - Bridget Law & Katie Gray
When we heal ourselves, we heal the World and that's just what Empowered Hearts aims to do: encourage deeper levels of self Love and acceptance so as to birth healing change for the collective. Empowered Hearts is a vision to gather people together and share new perspectives and insights of releasing fear by stepping into a stronger vibration of Love. Through local retreats and workshops, Katie Gray and Bridget Law combine their wisdom, friendship, music and love to birth the change they wish to see in the World.
Bridget's Waldorf education and backgrounds in dance and music led her to a creative lifestyle from a young age. Learning from a variety of adult female role models pulled her personality beyond what was only available within her family ties. By the time she was in her twenties, she was a recognizable and accepted fiddle player in a genre that at the time was dominated by men. By her early thirties, after extensive national touring, she and her band Elephant Revival, were headlining Red Rocks annually. Now, she's taken a step back to focus on what is most important to her--home. Currently she is building bridges in the Colorado music community for up and coming artists, festivals with a focus on sustainability and collaborations with amazing friends--such as Katie Gray and their endeavor to bring the experience of Empowered Hearts to people who are ready to go deeper. She is never short on opportunities to share her music and can be seen appearing as a special guest or alongside her husband in their band Tierro with Bridget Law. She is also helping with the production of Sister Wind, a festival spotlighting Women artists, on August 26th, 2018.
Katie is a singer, public speaker, activist and intuitive counselor. She has collaborated and/or shared the stage with artists such as: Band of Horses, Ani Difranco, The Polish Ambassador, Nightmares on Wax, Random Rab, Elephant Revival, The Burned, Ooah and more. Through the Emerging Women conferences in Boulder, CO and New York City, Katie spoke and performed her music to open the stage for both Brene Brown and Eve Ensler.  In 2013, she spent 2 weeks touring with Eve Ensler on a journey through India for the One Billion Rising movement in which she spoke and sang out against violence and abuse towards women.  Through years of studying meditation techniques and acquiring confidence and wisdom along the way, Katie leads motivational workshops and retreats ('Voice of Truth' and 'Empowered Hearts') with the focus to reprogram the mind to see ourselves and the World with a new vision of Love, forgiveness and fearlessness. Katie currently lives in the San Juan Islands of the coast of Washington State where she is writing her first book, completing her 3rd full length studio album and care giving for her beloved mother with dementia.

Doll Making Action - Maria Flegas
From an inspired conversation within the Shamanic Dolls Company [Maria Flegas, Melinda Cary and Anastacia Dadashpour] comes the launching of the Doll Wall.
What if the walls on the borders were actual entities? What if they held our stories? If they could speak~ what would they say? What is it that makes a human Migrate~ and what are the edges that we encounter to do so internally and externally?
Doll Making is a shamanic process that asks a series of 7 questions~ geared towards externalizing a character and journey through the craft. Share your own story of 'crossing borders', inner and outer landscapes, past and future, and encountering 'edges' inside and out. With each question, another part of the doll is created~ and a part of the journey is revealed.
Dolls may be kept, or they may be donated to the larger "Doll Wall Project". Donations of $10 for materials requested.
Maria Flegas has been dancing since the womb. She is influenced by her Greek ancestral (ecstatic) dance, as well as many other forms such as Butoh, Yoruban, Modern, Tribal Fusion, and Acro Dance. As a former US gymnast and circus artist, her spirit has a propensity to fly as well as draw influence from deep in her body, the earth~ and stories of origin. Maria loves to facilitate Authentic Movement ~wherein the raw, uninterrupted impulse of the body can emerge from the softest of tissues. She also draws from elemental, ancestral and imagistic influences in facilitating Butoh and Ritual Movement. She is especially excited about working in different landscapes and building a fun and adventurous community experience.

If Life Gives You Lemons - Patrick Harrington (music by (music by Katie Wise & Bhakti Explosion)
If Life Gives You Lemons - Hola! Me llamo Patrick. Yo quiero contarles una historia en mi pasdo recien. During this story we will remember how to be response-able while making the best of each moment.

Patrick Harrington is living a life that inspires him. A former serial entrepreneur, Patrick once started businesses he thought would earn him enough money to live a life full of meaning and difference-making. He was always searching for the means to an end. It wasn’t until yoga teacher training in 2001 that 17 years later, Patrick is the founder, owner, and Chief Vision Officer of Kindness Yoga, a donation-based collection of studios that hosts scores of teachers and tens of thousands of yoga students annually.he found a way to combine his love of business with an end in itself. Patrick is the father of two girls and a husband. His life has taken on more and more meaning through his committed explorations into his own patterns of – and addictions to – suffering. His classes reflect this intimate and vulnerable process and allow his students and fellow teachers to relate on a level that transforms. It is through his own healing journey and movement towards living his dharma that leads his yoga teaching, parenting, relationships and business. Patrick has taught before tens of thousands of students, lead teacher training and been a mentor to teachers over many years as the owner of Kindness Yoga. “We – as yoga studios and teachers – are not in competition with each other,” he says. “Rather, we are in competition with all the unconscious activities out there.” Patrick believes that yoga will direct culture towards a more awakened strategy of life. He encourages us to wake up to what we want to contribute in this life and “quit messing around and get on with it!”

Katie Wise & Bhakti Explosion - Heart-centered yogis who love to rock ‘n’ roll have been flocking to Katie Wise & Bhakti Explosion’s live Kirtans on the West Coast, and at the biggest sacred music festivals in the US and internationally, such as Lovelight, Unify, Arise, Hanuman Festival, Bhakti Fest, Stonehenge Music Festival, and Holistic Manchester.

Community Grief Ritual - Beth Erlander
We, in this Western Culture, lack conscious ways to grieve. Come and learn about relating to grief. There are ways to keep it moving and there are ways to simply be with it. Grief is not a disease to be cured or fixed. Grief happens when we lose what we love. Grief is the opposite of Love and so when we give witness to it within a group setting, healing may happen and more space is made available for love and joy to flow through. This ritual will involve dropping into your own grief, naming this and being witnessed in the group. We will gather as a group with clear intention to release grief, both personal and collective, and then with heartfelt desire we will let it go so that more love can enter.
Beth Erlander aka The Grief Freak is a Body-Centered Arts Psychotherapist and Certified Creative Grief Coach. Her main passion is to help others grieve in order to allow more flow of love and joy-the opposite of grief. Her work is informed by 20 years of psychotherapy experience but most importantly her own experience of being thrown into the bowels of grief when her life partner fell off his mountain bike, broke his neck and became quadriplegic. Her grief coaching practice is deeply informed by this apprenticeship to grief. Beth lives with grief everyday and is keenly aware of her need to "clean out the pipes" of grief in order to live more authentically. Her grief rituals and coaching practice is informed by her grief mentor and dear friend Sobonfu Some whose main purpose in life was to teach Westerners how to grieve. Along with her grief coaching, she is dedicated to finding 'out of the box' ways to help grief move such as offering walking grief pilgrimages on the El Camino de Santiago in France and Spain. She is also deeply influenced by her connection to the natural world and the innate wisdom of her own body and movement and embodiment practices.

The Freedom Movement is more than just great, conscious hip-hop, it is a way of life. It is being a support system for each other, and our dreams. It is a commitment to living in community, and making that community your family. It is spreading love and unity to all people everywhere. It opens the doors to your own heart to see what is inside, and to be able to see your own struggles and demons, and turn them into divinity, no matter how long it takes. It is expression of music, dance, performance, and art. It is a movement of pure love.

Xiuhtezcatl
The new wave of hip-hop has arisen a woke generation and, from it, Xiuhtezcatl (‘shoo-TEHZcaht’)-17-year-old Indigenous rapper and activist-has emerged stirring the comatose with his music.

From performing at the Standing Rock encampment with Immortal Technique and Nahko, to leading the Youth v. Gov. lawsuit against the Federal Government, Xiuhtezcatl’s music is more than words. “My music is both a tool for resistance and a medium to tell my story,” he says.

This past year, Xiuhtezcatl has been working with a team of world-class producers and musicians on his debut album, Break Free (set to release this spring). After nearly ten years of being depicted by the media, this coming-of-age record is the self-told story behind the outspoken, 17-year-old Indigenous-American.

At seventeen, Xiuhtezcatl’s voice has been pivotal to organizing an international youth movement that has banned fracking in the state of Colorado, sued the federal government, and gained support from prominent figures and artists.

An old soul with a young heart, Xiuhtezcatl is taking on the world and waiting for no one. It’s time we catch on.

Workshop / Presentation
Harmonizing Organizing
This workshop opens a space to remember we are all makers of music! This magical power is an amazing resource in our struggles for social justice. Together we will tap into this power and explore the process of songwriting on the long walk to freedom.

Biography
The Peace Poets are a collective of extraordinary Hip Hop and Spoken Word artists who celebrate life and advocate for freedom, justice, and peace through music and poetry. With their original songs, chants, and poems, they have helped invigorate some the great social movements of our time — from the Movement for Black Lives, to resistance to mass incarceration, to campaigns for climate justice and immigrants’ rights. Hailing from The Bronx, the Peace Poets have performed in more than 40 countries, often with communities facing threats to their human rights, their land, and their freedom. They have rocked the microphones in schools, prisons, community centers, clubs, rallies, and refugee camps. In all their work — whether on stage, in a classroom, or in the streets — they are committed to rising up the power of people to be creative and connected. The Peace Poets live lives that face the crises of our current reality with art and action that heals, connects and reminds us that we can all be the medicine this world needs.

Meadow Mountain
Meadow Mountain started as a group of friends busking on the corner of the Vail farmers market, and it wasn’t long before they were playing gigs around Vail and Summit counties. They formed initially over a love of traditional and progressive bluegrass music. For the first summer of the band’s existence, they learned as much bluegrass music as they could, digging into bands like The Punch Brothers, Bluegrass Album Band, and Bela Fleck’s Drive band. It was only a year after the band formed that they were hired to be the house band aboard the cruise ship, “The Norwegian Dawn”. There, the band spent a month tightening up their sound and exploring the eastern coast of Canada. Since their return, they have become one of the premier voices in Colorado Bluegrass music. The band has given a TED talk, hosted Denver’s only performance jam, and won the prestigious Rockygrass band competition. Other notable achievements include 1st place at the 2017 Ullrgrass band competition, 3rd place at the 2017 Telluride bluegrass competition, and opening for The Del McCoury Band. They live in Denver, CO.

Body Ritual Movement - Maria Flegas
Body Ritual Movement is the name given by Diego Pinon of Tlalpujahuja Mexico describing his Butoh Influenced forms of body and ritual practices. Strongly influenced by Pinon, Maria will provide Ritual and Body exercises that integrate rhythm and rigor to open the energetic centers of the body. These openings loosen the gateways of perception into the movement practice. Butoh is known for contacting the unseen world, the magic from the "other side", dreamscape, image and deep soulscapes. The elements are used as an abstract way into the psyche ~ bridging life in all it's dimensions~ and allows for the personal to relate with the infinite. The invitation is to feel deeply, to let the body express and reveal, share from the finite spaces in the body, and to let the soul surface.
Maria Flegas has been dancing since the womb. She is influenced by her Greek ancestral (ecstatic) dance, as well as many other forms such as Butoh, Yoruban, Modern, Tribal Fusion, and Acro Dance. As a former US gymnast and circus artist, her spirit has a propensity to fly as well as draw influence from deep in her body, the earth~ and stories of origin. Maria loves to facilitate Authentic Movement ~wherein the raw, uninterrupted impulse of the body can emerge from the softest of tissues. She also draws from elemental, ancestral and imagistic influences in facilitating Butoh and Ritual Movement. She is especially excited about working in different landscapes and building a fun and adventurous community experience.

Heart Connected Relationships - David Karchere & Ahva Lenay
Everything that comes into being does so through relationship. Relationship to self, to our close
intimate others, and our relationship to the greater world all rely on the healthy exchange of
emotional energy. The need for emotional energy is paramount in experiencing joy, resilience,
passion, compassion, creativity, and abundance. It is also the fuel that helps us navigate
through sorrow, frustration and the fears that can arise in these fast moving and demanding
times.
Co-creation requires heart connection and when the heart connection is weak relationships can
become difficult and often seem like too much to manage or sustain.
This workshop is an invitation to discover and explore key principles of emotional intelligence
that are the foundation for heart connected relationships. Mutual respect, and understanding
are among the keystones for thriving heart connections. Participants will have the opportunity
to experience empowering shifts in how they relate to others through interactive play and
practices.

As these things so often do, Family And Friends began as a lowly seedling of inspiration. “Good music, good people.” A stalk gave yield to branches. One became six, a collective of musicians by trade, lovers by spirit. Inspired by a life worth living, the Fam and Pals remained rooted with three ambitions in heart, mind, and soul: the people, the music, the memories. The reflection represented by blend of earnest folk rock and a communal spirit pouring a collective heart into something bigger than itself. An intangible force of an unfaltering love worth giving away. A Family And Friend tree ever-growing, ever-lasting.

Magna Carda
“Solid hip hop groups are harder to come by in Austin than say, country or rock, but thanks to local band, Magna Carda the hip hop scene in Austin is that much better.” (KUTX)

From their humble beginnings on a college campus four years ago, Magna Carda has steadily risen to the top of the Austin
music scene as the premiere hip hop act of 2016. Described by Mashable as “Austin’s answer to The Roots,” Magna Carda is led by the city’s most dynamic MC-producer duo — Megz Kelli and Dougie Do — whose work pairs like a fine wine with the meat-and-potatoes backbone of the group’s signature live instrumentation. With their genre-defying blend of rap-meets-jazz-meets-R&B-meets-electronic, the band has quickly captured the imagination of listeners and the attention of critics alike in Austin and beyond.

After forming as a rapper/producer duo on the campus of Austin’s St. Edward’s University in 2012, Megz Kelli and Dougie Do set their sights on developing a new sound that would make use of both live musicianship and studio production. In 2014, the duo began working with drummer Michael Gonzales alongside longtime guitarist and collaborator Eric “The Greek” Nikolaides. Since then, the band has been at the forefront of Austin’s burgeoning hip hop scene, and has shared the stage with hip hop’s biggest names from The Pharcyde and Joey Bada$$ to Chali 2na and Oddisee. Magna Carda’s unique sound has attracted the attention of NPR among other regional and national press.

The Intimacy Lab is a held space for personal and relational exploration, learning, and a deep oxytocin dive. This lab is designed to support it's participants in giving voice to inner desires, deep listening, and feeling more personal and shared intimacy with greater trust and confidence.
Greg Hill resides in Boulder, Colorado and spends his free time working on Intimacy Lab, yoga, contact improv, authentic relating, and massage as well as dancing, biking, and skiing.. With 20 years in the IT field, Greg developed patience, attention to detail, and intuitive problem-solving. He also acquired training in massage techniques and operated an Asian bodywork school, which instilled in him complementary skills of non-linear thinking and intuition about human nature and the universe. Greg’s education in climate change, permaculture and biomimicry, and leadership roles in restoration projects taught him the interconnection between our relationship to Gaia and environmental health. Due to a degenerative eye condition resulting in gradual blindness, Greg sees better peripherally, giving him a “wide-angled” world view. This unique view drives him to see the world with a “soft focus”, or via the parasympathetic system, informing his view of the natural world and in non-verbal interpersonal interactions.

Seeing Through the Veil - Mila Popovich
We will explore the myth that is the source for the Biblical “dance of the seven veils.” What is the significance of the grand existential metaphor of veiling? Can it and how help us see ourselves through the mystery of our existence? By re-telling the myth of Inanna’s descent into the underworld and presencing its states and stages though our personal stories, we will trace the grand cycle of a heroine’s journey and arrive at a better understanding of our own pathways. This ancient counterpart to a hero’s journey and His crucifixion showcases unique implications of a laborious archetypal passage for a woman’s psyche. To move forward into the future with joyful anticipation rather than fear, we need to revisit the models that help us re-build the healthier continuum of our individual and collective being. While the Feminine is the topic, all are invited to join the circle in the Red Tent and peak through the psychic veil of our feminine intelligence, resilience and resourcefulness for our shared future.

In one of David’s classes you will laugh, meet your neighbors, and even throw down a dance move (probably not in yin yoga). In addition to teaching yoga in the Denver area, David operates a local wilderness adventure company called Fire Heart Adventures.

ProbCause
In the ever-changing world of hip hop things rarely stay the same for a long period of time. The sound of Chicago seems to be on the forefront in recent years with talent like Chance The Rapper, Action Bronson, Vic Mensa … and of course, ProbCause. Keeping up a prolific output over the years, he’s seen his share of trends get born and quickly disappear. But throughout all of them he’s been like a sub-genre chameleon; transitioning, evolving his production yet maintaining his core flow. The sound ProbCause has become known for travels well beyond the boundaries of hip-hop – he can casually jump from electronic to funk to R&B, then back to classic boom-bap gritty rap, and still retain that unique ability to make you reminisce with his captivating storytelling.
This year alone Prob has worked with Griz, Gramatik, The Floozies, Manic Focus and more! He released his newest EP “Distrtactions” this past December, which includes production from Griz and Chris Karns of Pretty lights

Trevor Green
Spirited, deep, and thought provoking are just a few words to describe the artist known as Trevor Green. His music is something fresh and distinctly new, yet is deeply woven in the spiritual fabric of our ancient ancestors. Surrounded by 5 guitars, 3 didgeridoos, an array of percussion instruments and decorated of symbolic ancestral nature, Green’s stage appears to be a musical playground not for the faint of heart.
“I follow the music where it leads me. Through this process I find the music always comes from an honest place and that is most important in receiving the songs when they come through.” What deepens the music is Trevor’s ability to connect with his audience. Threading together sing-able and uplifting melodies, dynamic instrumentation, heart pounding rhythms and the haunting sounds of the didgeridoo, with his spontaneous improvisational ability, Green’s performance is a one man powerhouse with universal appeal that seems to come from the ground up. With his honest delivery and ability to extricate the music from a deep place of truth, he leads his audience through vast landscapes of sound, weaving together a magnetic and spellbinding performance.

Living Legends
The Living Legends are a family of independent hip-hop creators bringing their own raw, unique sound and unfiltered glimpse into their daily lives. It is this personal connection with the audience that has allowed their loyal fan base to extend around the world and it is their talent as emcees and producers that has garnered them the respect of their peers.
Forefathers in the independent hustle, the Living Legends spawned from a serendipitous series of events and crossed paths in the Bay Area – Oakland to be exact. Throughout the 90’s and 00’s The Living Legends honed their craft, laid blueprint plans of how to successfully grow an organic brand, toured the world and lived true to their name by amassing a legendary following, and story. Consummate creators, the Living Legends have a collective catalog of over 75 crew, solo, and inter-crew group albums all released independently.
In the 2000’s the Legends continued their mission, relocating to Los Angeles – home for many of the members – they soon landed a worldwide distribution deal and subsequently released crew albums that garnered critical and fan acclaim. Fusing the Bay Area hustle of Too Short and E-40, with honest and poignant lyrics with moving beats, The Living Legends gained a place in the halls of Hip Hop by being the independent kings; from starting their own festivals (Murs’ Paid Dues Festival), carrying the flag of hip hop into crowd funding (The Grouch & Eligh’s successful Kickstarter campaign), to being one of the first hip hop acts to tour the world, all done with a “F*ck The Establishment” ethos. It’s clear to see that these veterans laid the path for many of today’s independent acts.

The Dustbowl Revival
The Dustbowl Revival is an Americana Soul band with eight full-time members who mash the sounds of New Orleans funk, bluegrass, soul, pre-war blues, and roots music, into a genre-hopping, time-bending dance party that coaxes new fire out of familiar coal. Dustbowl is touring behind their self-titled, fourth studio album which spent three weeks on Billboard charts, hit #1 on Amazon Americana-Alt-Country, #2 on Amazon Folk, and has spent 13 weeks on the Americana radio chart peaking in the Top 20.

The band was founded in 2008 in the bohemian enclave of Venice Beach, California. Over the last five years Dustbowl has become known for their free-flowing and joyous live shows, combining their funk rhythm and brass section with a fast-picking string band section – opening for bands as diverse as Lake Street Dive, Trombone Shorty and The Preservation Hall Jazz Band, touring China as a guest of the state department and headlining festivals like Delfest, Floydfest, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, and recently Bergenfest (Norway) and Tonder Festival (Denmark). The band received a big wave of attention with their music video that featured famous actor Dick Van Dyke for “Never Had to Go”, which garnered over 10 million cumulative views. That video is now airing in an HBO Doc titled “If You’re Not in the Obit, Eat Breakfast” starring Jerry Seinfeld, Mel Brooks, and Dick Van Dyke.

While the band has been known for their old-time and bluegrass roots, they have departed from those styles and evolved more into modern soul music. Now, with Producer Grammy Award-winning Ted Hutt (Old Crow Medicine Show, Gaslight Anthem, Dropkick Murphys) who collaborated on the recent album, Dustbowl Revival brings it on, in the good company of neo-Soul contemporaries such as Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats and St. Paul & The Broken Bones. The album delivers eleven hot tracks, dominated by love-triangle funk & soul, tenderized with a nod to the unlikely possibility of true love – i.e. “Honey I Love You”, with Grammy Award-winning blues artist Keb’ Mo’ sitting in.

Thievery Corporation
Thievery Corporation – The Temple of I & I
How many highly successful musical artists do you know that have thrived for 20 years without a radio hit, a big budget video, or major label backing? Moreover, have managed to do high-profile TV appearances, own and operate their own independent label since day one, sell several million albums and continue to expand their fan base across the globe each year. They’ve collaborated with such uniquely famed artists David Byrne, Perry Farrell, The Flaming Lips, Anushka Shankar, Femi Kuti, Seu Jorge, Bebel Gilberto, and been featured on major film soundtracks such as Garden State. They’ve headlined top music festivals, such as Coachella and Lollapalooza, and have influenced a whole generation of electronic producers and DJs. If you add these elements together, you can arrive at only one conclusion: Rob Garza and Eric Hilton, aka: Thievery Corporation.

Since 1996, Garza and Hilton have released 8 studio LP’s, 2 remix collections, 2 DJ mix albums, and continued to perform live on 5 continents. Along their unique musical journey, they have virtually defined an entire sub-genre of electronic music. And now they’re ready to embark on yet another journey with the release of their new album, “The Temple of I & I.”

Longtime fans of Thievery Corporation are keenly aware that the duo has been heavily influenced by Jamaican music. Since their debut LP, “Sounds from the Thievery Hi-Fi,” the production team has applied a uniquely diverse dub ethos and aesthetic to their music. After paying tribute to bossa nova and easy listening inspirations on their 2014 release, “Saudade,” Hilton and Garza set their sights on the culturally rich and warm musical environs of Port Antonio, Jamaica. There, they dove even deeper into their singular exploration of classic Jamaican sounds for the “The Temple of I & I.”

“The innovation, spirit and power of Jamaican music is a constant source of creative manna for us,” explains Hilton. “On the musical map, Jamaica is an entire continent. We could have spent a year there, soaking up the vibes in the air, and constantly being inspired by the strength and resilience of the people.”

Their journey began on a cold February morning in 2015 when Garza, Hilton, and their DC-based rhythm section touched down in Kingston and ventured across the Blue Mountains to what Jamaicans call the “real Jamaica” – Port Antonio. Setting up camp at Geejam Studios in San San, they felt immediately connected to their surroundings as they began recording just steps from the turquoise waves crashing below.

As the Thieves played through day and night, heads poked through studio doors as curious locals seemed intrigued by such authentic sounds. “People couldn’t believe Robbie Myers, our guitarist, wasn’t Jamaican,” laughs Hilton. “I think they’re used to people coming down from London or LA to record rock or pop records and they were amazed we had such a handle on their sound. It was beyond gratifying, and high-grade ganja and Appleton rum started showing up on the reg.”

After a week of ‘round-the-clock sessions, Thievery Corporation brought the Geejam session tapes back to their lab at Montserrat House Studios in DC. From there, the mission continued with months of vocal, horn and editing sessions. Familiar voices appear, including Notch Howell, who had performed “The Richest Man in Babylon” and “Amerimacka” on previous records. Hilton calls him, “possibly the best male tenor we know.” Other collaborators included Mr. Lif, Puma Ptah, Lou Lou, Zeebo and Elin, who are all known by the Thievery audience as key members of their ensemble, both from past recordings and their live shows.

Also figuring prominently in those sessions was a Thievery Corporation newcomer; Racquel Jones from Kingston, Jamaica. Garza and Hilton had met Racquel on their first trip to Port Antonio, where she played some demos for them at Geejam that used Thievery Corporation as a backing track, and which sounded like a perfect match to them. “We’d been waiting years to find a conscious, brilliant, female Jamaican singer and MC,” Hilton explains. As a model and former Miss Jamaica contestant, one would not expect the pure lyrical fire and tough delivery that comes out of her on tracks like “Letter to the Editor” and “Road Block.” “It’s impressive,” says Hilton.

Few musical artists are as diverse as Thievery Corporation, moving from space rock, hip-hop, Indian trip-hop, dub, French torch songs, and shoe-gazer blissfulness with remarkable cohesive ease. Boundaries and following trends have never been part of Garza and Hilton’s agenda.

Explains Rob Garza, “We’ve never been concerned with fitting into the ‘music industry.’ We started making music in the liquor room of DC’s Eighteenth Street Lounge with random bits of music gear among boxes of spirits. Approaching our music as a production duo has allowed us to never feel limited to one particular sound and traverse many fascinating musical landscapes.”

In great anticipation of this exciting new release, and in reflection of an astonishing two decades together, one may be prompted to ask what has been the magic formula behind Thievery Corporation’s great success and what does the future hold from here? Perhaps the answer can be found in Rob Garza’s concluding thoughts: “What inspires us to continue to create this genre of sound is the broad spectrum of collaborators and audience members it continues to draw. We have been extremely privileged to work with artists of all cultural, social and political backgrounds, and our fans display even greater diversity and age differences. The people who have come together through Thievery Corporation are as much an accomplishment as the music we’ve produced to date and will continue to produce in the coming years.”

Con Brio
The night before Con Brio headed into the studio to record their first full-length album, 23-year-old Ziek McCarter had a dream. In it, the singer received a visit from his father, an Army veteran who died at the hands of East Texas police in 2011. His father delivered an invitation: Come with me to paradise.
McCarter woke up with a song in his bones. “It was one of the most spiritual moments of my life,” he recalls. It was up to him, he knew, to rise above injustice, and to perform in a way that lifted up those around him as well. To make Con Brio’s music a place of serenity, compassion — even euphoria — right here on earth.
Paradise, which saw the San Francisco band teaming with legendary producer Mario Caldato Jr. (Beastie Boys, Beck, Seu Jorge), is the result: a declaration of independence you can dance to; an assertion of what can happen when the human spirit is truly free.

Formed in 2013, Con Brio is the offspring of seven musicians with diverse backgrounds but a shared love for the vibrant Bay Area funk and psychedelic-soul sound pioneered by groups like Sly & the Family Stone.

By 2015, when the band self-produced their debut EP, Kiss the Sun, Con Brio had already become a West Coast institution on the strength of their magnetic live show, with McCarter’s swiveling hips, splits and backflips earning him frequent comparisons to a young Michael Jackson or James Brown.

In, Con Brio embarked on an ambitious international touring schedule, including stops at the lion’s share of major American music festivals (Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Summerfest and San Francisco’s own Outside Lands); Fuji Rock, Japan’s largest annual music event; Montreal Jazz Fest, the North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam, the Netherlands; London; Paris; with many more international dates to come throughout the year.

Which is not to say they’re intimidated. After performing most of these songs live throughout the past year, the team is running on adrenaline, and they’re thrilled to finally put this record in people’s hands. To bring old fans along for the journey, to help new fans lose themselves in a beat or a message. To spread music that, hopefully, shakes away the daily grind — and nurtures listeners’ dreams about what their version of paradise on earth might look like, even for the duration of a song.

Ziek McCarter already knows what his looks like, because Con Brio’s building it. And from where he’s sitting, they’re well past ready for liftoff.
“We don’t want to walk, we don’t want to drive,” he says with a laugh. “We want to fly. We want to levitate.”

Dead Floyd
Dancing Bears?
Flying Pigs?
Who is Dead Floyd and why do they keep following me around?

Dead Floyd is a celebration of the music of two of rock and roll’s greatest bands, The Grateful Dead and Pink Floyd, mashed together into one high-energy, unpredictable show. Drawing from both extensive catalogs of music, the Dead Floyd performances include early rarities to modern classics and everything in between. The love of the music of both bands inspires Dead Floyd to uniquely interpret the songs in a way that allows the music to timelessly live on and the legacy of both bands to stay alive to the next generation of fans. The excitement, creativity, and improvisation that went into both bands live shows of so many years is brought back for old and new fans to enjoy today.

Because the number of songs available from both bands is so large, the question that is heard at every Dead Floyd show is “What will they play next?” The unpredictability of the set list and the modern translation of classic, beloved songs bring an element of surprise to every Dead Floyd show. That is what has kept fans captivated and why their legacy as a tribute band continues to grow.

Dead Floyd is based out of Fort Collins, Colorado and, since forming in summer 2009, they have performed at renowned venues such as The Fox Theatre, The Aggie Theatre, Mishawaka Amphitheatre, Owsleys, Quixotes, Ullr’s Tavern, and more.

Foundations of Yoga - Join Alec for a special navigation through some of your favorite and foundational yoga postures. This is a potent approach to at least a dozen of the most important postures you will experience in a normal vinyasa class. It is often these postures are moved through very fast without attention they deserve in order to create a proper alignment for the individual body.

Having his first yoga practice through the Vinyasa system, breath became the key to finding inner contentment in life, staged through mindfulness. His personal practice reveals strong gems on how to move towards mastery in his unique offering of yoga to the world, influencing fellow brothers and sisters, while receiving wisdom from his Community. Although he is in the first decade of practice, he feels an unbounded dedication to cultivating a continued state of Study, as he comes to understand the nature of life through the lens of Yoga. Alec immediately dove into Bhakti, or devotion, for the sense of peace that has come from a committed practice, relieving the defeating waves of depression, confusion, and anxiety that life seems to produce. Alec has completed a 7 month journey of living in London, pursuing a Masters Degree in Traditions of Yoga and Meditation. Up until September of 2018, he will be writing a second thesis, based on the search for integrity in Yoga! His personal practice and teachings are based off of the student-teacher relationship.

Peace Qigong - Kathleen McGoey
Peace is within us, each and every moment. Let's gather as a community for an embodied experience that restores vitality, clarity, and peace through movement, visualization, and breath. Qigong (chee-gung) is a simple practice of moving energy intentionally through your body and beyond, and requires no previous experience. In peace qigong, you will sense your heartbeat connected to the heartbeat of mother earth, resonating with the heartbeat of all living beings. As you are guided through this form, you will experience harmonization of energies within and around you. This gentle method will help you feel centered and clear, and support our Arise experience by enhancing and uniting our shared intentions, vision, and compassion.
Kathleen McGoey began practicing qigong (chee-gung), a Daoist movement meditation, to grow in trust, joy, and freedom. Qigong helps to open physical and energetic pathways in the body through gentle movement, guided breath, and visualization. Practitioners experience increased vitality, relaxation, improved circulation, and better overall physical and emotional health. In this class, you will learn simple sequences that you can practice at home or in nature, and experience profound changes in your wellness. Kathleen is on an evolving journey as a peacemaker and has found qigong to be an important practice for integrating inner and outer experiences, and coming to rest in her center while also yielding to change. This discovery led her to write a book, Harmonizing Heavens and Earth: A Daoist Shamanic Approach to Elicitive Peacework, which explores her personal experiences with qigong, and draws connections to how qigong helps us develop skills for transforming conflict. Currently, Kathleen applies this practice in the field of restorative justice. She is the director of Longmont Community Justice Partnership, where she facilitates peacemaking processes and trains others in restorative justice practices. Kathleen is a member of the Lazuli Daoist Dipper Arts School, and an ordained Daoshi.

It is an excellent way to take charge of your health. The Qi Gong for Organ Strengthening and Cleansing class has a focus on flushing out toxins and strengthening every organ and cell in the body by opening blockages in the energy field of specific organs. I will guide the participants step-by-step through a therapeutic blend of focused movement, deep breathing and creative visualization techniques to: Circulate Qi (Life Force Energy) to rejuvenate the entire body; Revitalize key organs (lung, heart, liver, stomach, intestines, kidneys and gall bladder) responsible for moving toxins; Soothe one’s nervous system so it releases feel-good chemicals instead of stress hormones; Restore mental clarity by harmonizing the right and left brain; and Eliminate anxiety and center yourself through energy balancing movements.

Sher’s passion for the various modes of cultivating Qi (chi), life force energy, began as a young child when her mother, of Chinese descent, taught Sher Tui Na massage as practiced by Shaolin monks. Sher, influenced by her Traditional Chinese Medicine background, continued her journey of cultivating Qi through the Arts of Qi Gong, Tai Chi, Yoga, Paranayama and meditation.

Empowered Hearts - Bridget Law & Katie Gray
When we heal ourselves, we heal the World and that's just what Empowered Hearts aims to do: encourage deeper levels of self Love and acceptance so as to birth healing change for the collective. Empowered Hearts is a vision to gather people together and share new perspectives and insights of releasing fear by stepping into a stronger vibration of Love. Through local retreats and workshops, Katie Gray and Bridget Law combine their wisdom, friendship, music and love to birth the change they wish to see in the World.
Bridget's Waldorf education and backgrounds in dance and music led her to a creative lifestyle from a young age. Learning from a variety of adult female role models pulled her personality beyond what was only available within her family ties. By the time she was in her twenties, she was a recognizable and accepted fiddle player in a genre that at the time was dominated by men. By her early thirties, after extensive national touring, she and her band Elephant Revival, were headlining Red Rocks annually. Now, she's taken a step back to focus on what is most important to her--home. Currently she is building bridges in the Colorado music community for up and coming artists, festivals with a focus on sustainability and collaborations with amazing friends--such as Katie Gray and their endeavor to bring the experience of Empowered Hearts to people who are ready to go deeper. She is never short on opportunities to share her music and can be seen appearing as a special guest or alongside her husband in their band Tierro with Bridget Law. She is also helping with the production of Sister Wind, a festival spotlighting Women artists, on August 26th, 2018.
Katie is a singer, public speaker, activist and intuitive counselor. She has collaborated and/or shared the stage with artists such as: Band of Horses, Ani Difranco, The Polish Ambassador, Nightmares on Wax, Random Rab, Elephant Revival, The Burned, Ooah and more. Through the Emerging Women conferences in Boulder, CO and New York City, Katie spoke and performed her music to open the stage for both Brene Brown and Eve Ensler. In 2013, she spent 2 weeks touring with Eve Ensler on a journey through India for the One Billion Rising movement in which she spoke and sang out against violence and abuse towards women. Through years of studying meditation techniques and acquiring confidence and wisdom along the way, Katie leads motivational workshops and retreats ('Voice of Truth' and 'Empowered Hearts') with the focus to reprogram the mind to see ourselves and the World with a new vision of Love, forgiveness and fearlessness. Katie currently lives in the San Juan Islands of the coast of Washington State where she is writing her first book, completing her 3rd full length studio album and care giving for her beloved mother with dementia.

New Technologies for Social Transformation - Mila Popovich
Arising from the need and urgency to address those global challenges affecting us all, the last several years have seen the emergence of a new technology – blockchain – released in the aftermath of the economic crisis of 2008. As a direct peer-to-peer transaction system, this distributed ledger technology, is designed for decentralization, democratization and transparency. It is already transforming supply chain, legal services, government operations, insurance business, healthcare systems and so much more. Accompanying blockchain are cryptocurrencies – programmable currency and digital assets with, hopefully, social incentives. This technology can make realization of the SDGs possible and accelerated as well as position each of us as generators of wealth and value to be fully realized.
This year, in particular, is seeing the broad unleashing of the blockchain technologies. We cannot afford to miss the opportunity to shape the course of global developments that the adoption of the new technologies brings. They were meant for positive social change and what is urgently needed is ethical leadership at their formative stage.
We will explore the question of the social impact of the blockchain technologies and ways in which we can enhance the representation of the broadest-based stakeholders for the technology highly dependent on the broadest possible adoption and participation. We will begin by asking essential questions: What constitutes wealth, wisdom and wellbeing? Who creates wealth and how is it shared? What are the new ways and means of expressing economy in terms of new values? Who are the new social architects, transmitter and integrators to navigate this change? How will we participate in the greater economy of life now?

Through both individual and interactive exercises, you will see and feel deeply into the experience of that ultimate surrender that will eventually be required of you, helping you connect to a more liberated perspective and more intimate connection to the immeasurable preciousness and opportunity of what this gift of life is offering you right now.

Indian Classical Music with Bijay Shrestha & Andy Skellenger
Bijay Shrestha will be the featured performer on sitar. He was born to Tabla Maestro Rabin Lal Shrestha and Sitar player Bina Shrestha. Coming from a musical family, Mr. Bijay lal Shrestha started learning Tabla at the tender age of four under the guidance of his father, and by the time he was 18, he completed his masters degree in Tabla. Currently, he is majoring in sitar (Master degree) at Lalitkala campus under the guidance of Sitar Maestra Uma Thapa being the only young artiste in Nepal to have achieved degrees in both tabla and sitar. As result of his numerous years of training in both tabla and sitar, Mr. Shrestha’s profound understanding of diverse gharana styles and mastery of technical skill gradually began to resonate through the magical touch of his swift, agile fingers. Today he is hailed as one of the serious, young exponents of classical music, who constantly endeavors to infuse interest and respect for this traditional art in the hearts and minds of the younger generation. He has performed in different European countries (Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Holland, Austria and Italy) with his band “Prana Mundi). Currently, He is residing in Colorado, performing and offering sitar lessons.
Andy Skellenger will accompany on tabla. He is one of Colorado’s premier percussionists and an up and coming figure of Indian Classical Music in America. In 2000, at the age of 18, Andy spent 6 months in India, beginning his immersion in the study of tabla. He has pursued his passion without pause for 18 years, developing formidable speed and clarity, a deep understanding of Indian Music, and a well rounded solo repertoire. He is a member of numerous ensembles in the Denver/Boulder area including Fortunato, Miguel Espinoza Flamenco Fusion, Jam Key Jam, and the Matt Skellenger Group.

Journey Through the Chakras - Kate Mulheron (music by Jay Kraemer)
Journey Through the Chakras - Please join Kate Mulheron as she guides you through an Earth Ways Yoga Practice, based on Yoga, The Nature Ways and the 5 Element Philosophy to awaken and clear your 7 energy centers along your spine working through your physical, emotional and spiritual bodies as a way to walk in clarity, confidence and authenticity in your physical beingness!! We will be joined by Jay Kraemer as he supports our practice with his Intuitive Sound Scaping Ambient music to deepen our practice through sound wave healing.

Kate has walked a complex life of different layers of healing she has had to embrace. On this walk, she has met many teachers who’ve reminded her to stay true to her healing path. Over the last twenty five years, Kate has practiced many styles of yoga as a vehicle to support her healing and evolution. Kate’s great love of yoga has significantly impacted her practice, life and spirit, and has taught her a greater understanding of the healing power of breath and movement within the physical, emotional and spiritual layers of the human body. She completed Hot Yoga Teacher Training in December 2008. Kate went on to train with Ana Forrest in October of 2009, which was one of the most pivotal experiences of her life. Ana Forrest reminded Kate of the healer she was meant to be by providing a space for her to take a deep and honest look at the protective barriers holding her back in life. In her 30s, Kate faced a crossroads where she knew she had to break out of how she was walking in her life and choose a new way of being which allowed her to be free in her life, in a fuller, more authentic way. During this experience she met her spiritual teacher, Trudy Welty. Trudy is known as a wisdom holder of working with nature in a sacred way. Trudy taught Kate methods of living as a sensitive being in this world by building a bridge working with Mother Nature and the human experience in a cohesive internal balance. She continues in her studies with Miss Trudy. As Kate continued teaching and evolving in her healing ways, how she taught yoga shifted, and through her healing evolution, Kate was guided and then inspired to create a yoga style that worked with the elements of nature. Kate began creating a style with Kelly Kessen, a teacher of Five Elements Acupuncture, and Earth Ways Yoga began. Kate and Kelly invited Trudy Welty, a well-trained naturalist, to add even more depth of relationship between the natural world and humans’ evolution toward walking in balance on this earth in honoring all the relations. Earth Ways Yoga builds the bridge between Mother Nature and the human experience through yoga, meditation and ritual. Kate, Kelly and Trudy are honored to be able to stand together to offer these trainings to others who are ready to stand in an authentic way as a teacher in this world. Kate’s teaching will help unlock barriers that have held you back from walking a path of vibrancy in this life. Kate is honored to be able to bring her great passion for the art of healing to all that cross her path at all the studios where she teaches, including Yoga Pod and Radiance Power Yoga in Boulder Colorado, Tula Hot Yoga Studio in Denver, and guest teaches at Ra Yoga in Southern California. Kate also facilitates healing circles in her community which incorporate the Seven Directions, the 5 Elements and relationship building with the Natural World. Kate has a flourishing private practice in Boulder, Colorado. These sessions incorporate guidance through deeply intuitive energy work and breath work to live in a better way with mind, body and essence as a sensitive being in this world. Kate provides a sacred space and tools to help her clients facilitate their own healing processes.

Ancestral Healing Circle - Paul Stover Soderman & Grandfather Phillip Little Thunder
Come and participate in healing the lineage as we gather together with these amazing human beings.
Testimony from a Prayer Walker: Biko Cassini of Rising Appalachia
The Journey of the last week has touched my heart and spirit to its core.
To heal the past is a journey, one that one walks for a lifetime, with prayer and sacrifice.
Paul Stover Soderman and Philip Little Thunder made a 4 year commitment to walk the paths their ancestors walked as enemies 150 years ago, this time as brothers, in peace and in prayer. They walked over 700 miles together, praying at places where terrible events happened, reprogramming their own pain into Love and sending out a “cosmic ripple”.
We were invited to walk with them in the final days of their commitment, walking the last 50 miles with them to Laramie, where the Fort Laramie treaty was signed 150 years ago last Sunday. The treaty was to Guarantee the Lakota and other tribes a homeland, including the Black Hills, but was broken almost immediately and continues to be broken to this day.
I cannot begin to describe the events of these last days walking and praying together, or the events that took place when we joined with those tribes gathered to honor the treaty and see it upheld. I can only share a few impressions:
If it is forgotten, it can be remembered.
If it is remembered, it can be healed.
True healing takes commitment, sacrifice, and time.
When we walk the earth respectfully, we remember what it feels like to be human.
Horses are healers
Water is Life
Humility is a great strength that one can carry and with it Love can triumph.
An open heart can open hearts.
The more time we spend outside on the land, away from our devises, without using money, the richer our lives become.
Prayer , Respect, and Gratitude are doorways to spirit.
Miracles happen all the time when we align with prayerful purpose.
I send my most heart felt thanks to Zey, Leah, Chloe, Paul, Feather, Shaunti, Philip and all the walkers for your friendship and for the prayerful ways you live.
I send deep Love and respect to the Lakota, Arapaho, Cheyenne, Crow and all native people for keeping their ways alive despite the cruelest hardship, so that we may witness what is beautiful in their ways, and turn a new page in history together that honors and respects all people and all paths to creator.
We are all related,
To all my relations!

Reinventing Revolution: Bringing Heart, Spirit, Courage, Connection, and Commitment To Our Hurting World
DESCRIPTION:
Activism is so often seen as only for a select few.  Yet every time we make a choice, we affect our world and our earth.  So every single one of us are "activists."  It is not; CAN one person make a difference?  It is that each and every one of us DOES make the difference.  What we have to ask ourselves is, "What KIND of a difference do i want to make with the gift of my life?"  In today's hurting world, we need to reinvent what it means to be actively engaged.  We do not need more hurt, anger, hatred, and violence.  Today's challenging times call for us to bring the very best of ourselves forward with a commitment to connection every step of the way.
Join in a conversation about how to uplift one another and ourselves even as we work to dismantle the destructive and oppressive systems and structures.

Group Cuddling and Consent Workshop - Kassandra Brown
Based on Cuddle Party Rules, this workshop takes us through the Rules of Cuddling with experiential exercises then sets us free to explore cuddling the way we want it. We'll create an environment for group platonic, consensual touch that is safe, fun, and nurturing. Community Cuddles brings together people from different walks of life to explore giving and receiving loving touch. Not only that, but it promotes a culture that is built around consent! You do not have to do anything that you don't want to at our Cuddle – you're completely at choice. Most people show up kind of nervous and leave relaxed, grateful, and really glad they came.
I'm looking forward to meeting, connecting, and working with you.

THE RULES OF CUDDLING*


  • Clothes stay on for the whole event.

  • You do not have to touch anyone, ever.

  • You must ask permission and receive a verbal YES before you touch anyone. Please be specific in your requests.

  • If you’re yes, say YES. If you’re a no, say NO.

  • If you’re a maybe, say NO. You can always change your mind.

  • You are encouraged to change your mind.

  • Respect your relationship agreements and communicate with your partner.

  • Get your facilitator or assistant if you have a question or concern or if you need assistance with anything during the event.

  • Tears and laughter are both welcome.

  • Respect people’s privacy when sharing about your experiences.

  • Keep the cuddle space tidy and help clean up.


*Based on Cuddle Party Rules

I am Kassandra Brown, Professional Cuddler, Coach, and Educator, I believe that consensual touch has the power to change the world and create a kind yet powerful revolution. My work has taken me into being a yoga and meditation teacher, a homebirthing mom, the founder of ParentCoaching.org, a member of Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage, a somatic sex educator, and now a Cuddlist. I love distilling my vast experiences into simple tools that uplift my clients’, friends’, and family’s lives enabling them to connect more deeply with each other, themselves, and the earth.

Since his first gigs at only 12 years old and recording an EP as a teenager, Andrew has captured audiences with his ability to shift seamlessly between soulful acoustic music and fronting bands from multiple genres. From residencies in Boulder, CO staples No Name Bar and The Laughing Goat coffeehouse to more prominent appearances as The Walnut Room in Denver and Uncommon Ground in Chicago, his precise guitar grooves and seemingly limitless voice inspire comparisons to scene favorites such as Martin Sexton and Amos Lee, among others.

In addition to appearances and collaborations around the Boulder area, Andrew has an album in the works, due Spring 2018.

Community Grief Ritual - Beth Erlander
We, in this Western Culture, lack conscious ways to grieve. Come and learn about relating to grief. There are ways to keep it moving and there are ways to simply be with it. Grief is not a disease to be cured or fixed. Grief happens when we lose what we love. Grief is the opposite of Love and so when we give witness to it within a group setting, healing may happen and more space is made available for love and joy to flow through. This ritual will involve dropping into your own grief, naming this and being witnessed in the group. We will gather as a group with clear intention to release grief, both personal and collective, and then with heartfelt desire we will let it go so that more love can enter.
Beth Erlander aka The Grief Freak is a Body-Centered Arts Psychotherapist and Certified Creative Grief Coach. Her main passion is to help others grieve in order to allow more flow of love and joy-the opposite of grief. Her work is informed by 20 years of psychotherapy experience but most importantly her own experience of being thrown into the bowels of grief when her life partner fell off his mountain bike, broke his neck and became quadriplegic. Her grief coaching practice is deeply informed by this apprenticeship to grief. Beth lives with grief everyday and is keenly aware of her need to "clean out the pipes" of grief in order to live more authentically. Her grief rituals and coaching practice is informed by her grief mentor and dear friend Sobonfu Some whose main purpose in life was to teach Westerners how to grieve. Along with her grief coaching, she is dedicated to finding 'out of the box' ways to help grief move such as offering walking grief pilgrimages on the El Camino de Santiago in France and Spain. She is also deeply influenced by her connection to the natural world and the innate wisdom of her own body and movement and embodiment practices. Her website is www.yestreecounseling.com and follow her on Instagram for tips and tricks about grief at :www.instagram.com/beth_erlander_aka_grief_freak/

Trevor Green
Spirited, deep, and thought provoking are just a few words to describe the artist known as Trevor Green. His music is something fresh and distinctly new, yet is deeply woven in the spiritual fabric of our ancient ancestors. Surrounded by 5 guitars, 3 didgeridoos, an array of percussion instruments and decorated of symbolic ancestral nature, Green’s stage appears to be a musical playground not for the faint of heart.
“I follow the music where it leads me. Through this process I find the music always comes from an honest place and that is most important in receiving the songs when they come through.” What deepens the music is Trevor’s ability to connect with his audience. Threading together sing-able and uplifting melodies, dynamic instrumentation, heart pounding rhythms and the haunting sounds of the didgeridoo, with his spontaneous improvisational ability, Green’s performance is a one man powerhouse with universal appeal that seems to come from the ground up. With his honest delivery and ability to extricate the music from a deep place of truth, he leads his audience through vast landscapes of sound, weaving together a magnetic and spellbinding performance.

Intimacy Lab - Greg Hill
The Intimacy Lab is a held space for personal and relational exploration, learning, and a deep oxytocin dive. This lab is designed to support it's participants in giving voice to inner desires, deep listening, and feeling more personal and shared intimacy with greater trust and confidence.
Greg Hill resides in Boulder, Colorado and spends his free time working on Intimacy Lab, yoga, contact improv, authentic relating, and massage as well as dancing, biking, and skiing.. With 20 years in the IT field, Greg developed patience, attention to detail, and intuitive problem-solving. He also acquired training in massage techniques and operated an Asian bodywork school, which instilled in him complementary skills of non-linear thinking and intuition about human nature and the universe. Greg’s education in climate change, permaculture and biomimicry, and leadership roles in restoration projects taught him the interconnection between our relationship to Gaia and environmental health. Due to a degenerative eye condition resulting in gradual blindness, Greg sees better peripherally, giving him a “wide-angled” world view. This unique view drives him to see the world with a “soft focus”, or via the parasympathetic system, informing his view of the natural world and in non-verbal interpersonal interactions.

Painting Circle [Teens +] - Franki Zinke
Generating creative collaboration"" Here we sit in circle around the altar of paint colors and brushes after we have all found a piece of bark/ wood/ stick/ rock/ canvas... to paint on. We dip our brushes and paint with the colors we resonate with.

Chakra Healing - Faith Hunter (music by Quioxtic)
Chakra Healing - The Chakras are energy centers within our bodies that serve as pathways to awaken and rebalance the body and soul.

During this workshop, Faith will incorporate yoga postures, mudras, mantras, and meditation to awaken the pathway. The session will be Spiritually Fly Hatha sequencing merged with Kundalini Yoga.

Always eager to learn, explore, and share, Faith has been teaching since 2003 and is an inspiring and generous mentor to yoga practitioners of all skill levels.

Ethan Tucker
Ethan Tucker’s trademark sound of acoustic roots and layered electric guitars combined with an unmistakable soulful and bluesy vocal, is a recipe which has garnered attention from some of his most popular contemporaries, as well as bonafide legends.

Born in Olympia, Washington, Ethan has traveled the country with Jimmy Cliff, Buddy Guy, and The Wailers as well as national support slots with musical peers Slightly Stoopid, G-Love, and Michael Franti.

With Ethan’s newest release Misunderstood, now out on Stoopid Records (May 5, 2015) his enthusiasm for collaboration is seamlessly exemplified on his 11-song album produced by Michael Franti and Mario Caldato Jr., (Beastie Boys, Jack Johnson, G Love), and includes special guests Money Mark, Norwood Fisher (Fishbone) and Thomas Pridgeon (Mars Volta).

Ethan’s career took off after impressing Michael Franti with an impromptu backstage jam in Spearhead’s dressing room long before ever playing a show together. Ethan was summoned by Franti to come to his studio in San Francisco, CA to record what would later become some of the more infectious tracks on Misunderstood. From there, a bond between the two artists was solidified. The first single “Crazy Tonight” was arranged, recorded, produced at Franti’s studio, also features him on guest vocals. This track, coupled with the reggae-pop hybrid “Cool Kids” (also produced by Franti) opens a new album that is a cohesive coming of age for an artist in Ethan’s shoes – except “ET” as some fans call him, doesn’t wear shoes!!

“I think Ethan is going to be a perennial artist for a lifetime of music. He is not somebody who you think is going to be like three years on the map and then you never hear from them again. “He is going to be an artist to me like Ben Harper or Jack Johnson or even John Lee Hooker.” An artist who plays music until they can’t play anymore.” – Michael Franti

“Ethan is amazing at whatever he does. Singing, strumming, shredding the guitar on leads, or just making people smile. He’s good at it all. His latest album Misunderstood has many variations of styles. My favorite song off it is “This has all been a dream”. It best captures Ethan’s talent and personality Good music is great, but when the personality and character of the person making the music is just as great, there ain’t nothin’ better.”- Kyle McDonald, Slightly Stoopid

The Burned
The Burned Launches a New Music Tour in 2018
Fronted by singer-songwriter Kurt Baumann, roots-rock band The Burned first exploded onto the music scene in 2010 with a celebrated self-titled debut album. Now, some years later, the band is reigniting its loyal fan base and working on new music for the coming year.

Listeners appreciated The Burned for its evocative tales, proclaiming the album “fantastic” and “worth every penny.” Television and radio responded well, too, with “Man Running” featured on NBC’s hit show Chase, “Make Believe” on CW’s Gossip Girl, and “Time” on ABC’s Make It or Break It. Regarding that first album, Denver Post’s The Know described the band’s impact as revolving largely around its front man. “While you might not have heard of The Burned yet, its mastermind, Kurt Baumann, is no newcomer … [He] has fronted psychedelic world music outfit Kan’Nal for a decade … The Burned finds Baumann exploring his domesticated side… at its heart, The Burned is a pop rock project that draws on blues and R&B influences and mines at least three decades of expansive, progressive rock for its challenging-yet-accessible sound.”

The Burned’s acclaimed first chapter had fans clamoring for live shows. Indeed, its first album (largely studio-based) was a success story that surprised even Baumann, who has since pulled together a full touring band to both record and perform the band’s music.

A Story Develops
Baumann’s writing style has evolved with the years, too. While in the spirit of the debut album, his new songs take on a storytelling, rootsy feel inspired by the epic “outlaw country” – think Willie and Waylon – he heard as a young Texan. He explains, “The new songs have been great fun to write in that they revive classic storytelling, but with rock tones and textures added along the way.”

With such resonating stories to tell and a sound so uniquely its own, The Burned is energized and eager to share from the stage what it has been capturing in the studio. “As a band,” says Columby, “we’ve synchronized in that rare way that makes musical space for your ears to listen, your heart to smolder, and for your body to move.”

Vince Herman
Things are just more fun when Vince Herman is around, and since helping co-found Leftover Salmon over a quarter century ago, Leftover Salmon shows have always been the most fun.Herman moved to Boulder, CO from Morgantown, West Virginia, where he was attending West Virginia University, in 1985. On his first night in town, he met his future bandmate Drew Emmitt at a show for Emmitt’s group at the time, the Left Hand String Band.The two struck up an immediate friendship. For a short time after moving to Boulder, Herman joined The Left Hand String Band, marking the first time thetwo would play together in a band. Herman soon left The Left Hand String Bandto pursue his own musical vision. He formed the Salmon Heads, a Cajun-jug bandthat tried to wrangle all of Herman’s disparate musical influences, Cajun, Calypso, Ska, and bluegrass into a coherent musical statement. His vision was fully realized on New Year’s Eve 1989 when the Salmon Heads and The Left Hand String Band united forces for a show. The show was a rousing success and the energycreated on stage that evening was something special, and a new band, Leftover Salmon, was born. It is a band that truly matched Herman’s vision and allowedhim to showcase his wildly, theatrical stage anticsand skills.Nearly thirty-years later those antics and skills are still on display at every show they play.

Madeleine Froncek (Ley Line)
Madeleine Froncek is multi-instrumentalist living in Austin, Texas. She co-writes songs and plays upright bass with the female world-folk quartet, Ley Line. She also plays banjo and bass with her bluegrass trio, Steel Betty. Madeleine’s mission statement as a musician is to deepen her understanding of self and others through harmony, dissonance and creative expression. Her compositions use storytelling and imagery to transport listeners on adventures through vivid and tranquil dreamscapes.

Andrew Sturtz
With a mixture of Soul, Folk, and Pop, Andrew Sturtz garners comparisons to Amos Lee, Martin Sexton, and others. For over 15 years, Andrew has performed throughout many venues within the Michigan and the Chicago area. Though, after taking a break from live performance in 2014, Andrew is picking up where he left off in his new home of Colorado. Reinvigorated by a vibrant music community in Boulder, CO, an album is in the works for Summer of 2017. “Sturtz has a laid back, effortless vibe to his music, while also having the raw talent that does not require any clever tricks to deliver a smooth yet vibrant performance. – Compose Yourself Magazine

“The experience of playing with different musicians, improvising every night, and getting the crowd involved in ways different from regular show has provided an unparalleled live music experience,” said Butler. “Utilizing conducted improvisation as a tool to facilitate spontaneous group compositions, is what makes EO unique and magical.”

Trevor Hall
Raised on an island in South Carolina, singer/songwriter Trevor Hall realized at a young age that music was more than just a passion – it was, rather, his life’s art. At sixteen, he recorded his first album, soon after which he left South Carolina for Idyllwild Arts Academy in California. There he studied classical guitar and was also introduced to the practices of yoga and meditation, which would greatly influence his life and his music.
Hall’s music, a blend of roots and folk music with hints of inspiration from India, has led him to a series of sold-out tours and collaborations with artists such as Steel Pulse, The Wailers, Jimmy Cliff, Matisyahu, Michael Franti, Xavier Rudd and Nahko & Medicine for the People.

Trevor Hall’s Chapter of the Forest (2014) and KALA (2015), debuted at #3 and #2 on the iTunes singer/songwriter chart respectively. He is currently touring around the US and Australia. While on tour, Hall collects donations to support children’s education in India.
Hall’s latest album, The Fruitful Darkness, became the #1 Kickstarter Music campaign of 2017 (#30 of all time out of 53,000 Music projects) and is being released in three song installments on specific lunar dates, culminating in a 14-song deluxe edition release, June 1st 2018.

Jyemo Club
Jyemo Club has arrived! The new project from Jonny Jyemo brings together musicians from 4 different countries, each bringing their own flavor to spice up the vibes. This is dance music to celebrate life, this is dance music with a rebel attitude. Uniting Latin and Caribbean beats with north American funk and rock, singing in English and Spanish, Jyemo Club is here to jam the radios and sound systems of the world. Busta Music!
With a stand-out 1st year launch in 2017, Jyemo Club has performed at venues most bands merely aspire to, let alone play at in year one! Red Rocks Amphitheatre with the String Cheese Incident was one of those moments. Other stand out performances include, Arise Music Festival, Global Music Festival, Bohemian Nights at NewWest Fest and the Levitt Pavilion to name a few.
Armed with their debut album, “So Near, So Far” released on Thundersmoke Records, the epic full-length boasts a wide range of emotions and rhythms sung in both Spanish and English. This band is on FIRE and there is no stopping them now. Rocking a full 10-piece entourage, fronted by vocalists Whitney Hernandez from Havana, Cuba, and Jus Goodie from Motown, Detroit MI, Jyemo Club is certainly an incredible spectacle to witness live!

Dumpstaphunk
Dumpstaphunk stands out among New Orleans’ best as one of the funkiest bands to ever arise from the Crescent City. Born on the Jazz & Heritage Festival stage, and descended from Neville family bloodlines, these soldiers of funk ignite a deep, gritty groove that dares listeners not to move. Their performances combine ingenious musicianship and complex funk and jazz arrangements with soulful melodies that are simple enough for anyone to enjoy. In Big Easy tradition, dueling baselines from Tony Hall and Nick Daniels III set off one of the dirtiest rhythm sections on the planet, while Ivan Neville lights up the Hammond B3 keys and cousin Ian Neville’s funky guitar riffs send the groove into overdrive. The band recently welcomed their newest member, Alvin Ford Jr. to the quintet, a New Orleans born and raised powerhouse drummer. Dumpstaphunk tosses around lead vocals and four-part harmonies the way Sly & the Family Stone did, but with three studio albums under their belt, Dumpstaphunk stands on the merit of their own material. Songs like “Dancin’ To The Truth” off their latest record, Dirty Word (Red Hot Records), offer an escape into the funky sublime, sharing the true spirit of New Orleans with every note.

Eminence Emsemble
While Eminence Ensemble’s musicianship impresses most, it’s their ability to cross and bend
genres so fluidly, meticulously and with purpose that sends fans on a unique journey. The 6-
piece band takes you down the rabbit hole with soulful vocals and playful lyrics to reach new
levels of transcendence. EE waits for no one and their tenacity is real.
Despite attempts at categorizing Eminence Ensemble, the band has interest and heart for every
genre and has devoted its craft to making you feel as if you too are a part of the journey. When
you attend an Eminence show, you’ll hear influences from 80s hard rock, 70s soul and funk and
00s R&B. Their live shows are hard to pinpoint, as seamless as they are bizarre, playful as they
are razor sharp, but never dull or easily replicated. The Denver-based sextet has performed at
Electric Forest, Euphoria Music Festival, The Werk Out, Friendly Gathering and more. Eminence
Ensemble is more than just a rock band, they’re a rock band who jams with heart and soul.
