FAERIE BALL BENEFIT Featuring Celtic Gypsy Mischief Makers, SJ TUCKER & BETSY TINNEY with American Sign Language Artist Autumn O'Leary of Dancing Hands Productions
SJ TUCKER "Without our songs and stories, we are nothing." This one phrase tells you what you need to know about S.J. Tucker. Multi-instrumentalist, road warrior, front woman, songwriter and rallying point; yes, she is all of these things. More than anything, she is a storyteller. Named a vanguard of the Mythpunk Movement, and even "the face of neo-tribal Paganism" by Witches & Pagans Magazine, Tucker is the voice of lore at the campfire and the sharp laughter of modern myth. With one hand anchored in her art, and the other held out to you, she is songs and stories, community and wit.
BETSY TINNEY After playing the cello from the age of nine, in 1997, Betsy began playing nonclassical cello with the rock band Gaia Consort, and now plays with many Indie bands. She's a founding member & partner of the folk trio Tricky Pixie and has also performed/recorded with S.J. Tucker (Skinny White Chick), Vixy and Tony, Heather Dale, Jeff & Maya Bohnhoff, to name a few. Betsy teaches cello to a few select adult students. She is an active member of the New Directions Cello Association, a worldwide association dedicated to nonclassical forms of cello playing. Most recently, Betsy won the 2012 Pegasus Award for Best Performer.
AUTUMN O'LEARY Autumn is one half of the signing duo known as Dancing Hands Productions. She has been signing for 10 years, and over the last 3 of those years, Autumn started performing at concerts along with such performers as SJ Tucker, Heather Dale and Vixy and Tony. She has performed at festivals and conventions, painting vivid, vibrant pictures of music with her hands.
There will be Wonderful home-baked desserts available for a nominal fee. We do recommend dining before you arrive, as hardier fare will not be available.
SJ Tucker will have a table with stickers and cds by her, Tricky Pixie and other wonderful things. Check out the beautiful hand-made jewelery by Julie at Bad Juju Designs. Looking for botanicals that are made with all natural ingredients by a Master Herbalist? Then you must visit Kracken Botanicals! Maybe you're in the market for a ritual knife or a purple heart wood box for your Tarot or Runes? Kraken Leaf & Blade has gorgeous wares hand-made by Handsome Will.
Have a difficult decision to make? Maybe you just want a little insight? We will have experienced Tarot Readers available for 15 minute readings. These ladies are phenomenal!
We're especially excited to have SHADOWHAWK as a reader. She's been reading Tarot for 40+ years. She is experienced in many forms of the divinatory arts, and is a high demand speaker at psychic fairs and Pagan gatherings. Born in New York City, Shadowhawk traveled all over North America before finally settling down in Washington in the late 70's. It was her move to the Seattle are that brought her together with man who was to become her husband of over 30 years. Shadowhawk and her husband live outside Seattle with their two very spoiled dogs.
With so much going on, you're bound to have a great time! Two sets by Sooj & Betsy, vendors with shiny things and experienced readers and lovely desserts all in a a gorgeous mountain setting! I just can't wait!
