Amber Norgaard & Friends Holiday Concert & CD Release Celebration!
Described as "poet, peace-warrior, healer" (Tucson Lifestyle Magazine) and "Tucson's Folk-Rock Goddess" (Natural Awakenings Magazine), Amber Norgaard is known for her passionate vocal/piano/guitar delivery, eloquent lyrics and graceful melodies that inspire hope. After growing up on a farm in NW Iowa, Amber attended Creighton University College of Nursing. Prior to launching her music career in 2004, she worked as a registered nurse in southwestern Alaska. For six years, she lived 400 miles off the road system and was immersed within the indigenous population. It was here that she learned to use music as a source of connection to transcend language and cultural barriers. This discovery was what led her to pursue her passion - using music as healing art to foster compassion, spirituality and promote positive social change. She has released five full-length albums and multiple singles, toured nationally, opened for Judy Collins, Kenny Loggins, and Michael McDonald, received accolades for her songwriting, written songs for multiple non-profit organizations and film projects, and speaks at universities and organizations on "Music as a Healing Art and Instrument for Social Change".
For many years, Amber's mom has been asking for a holiday album. Finally, in 2018, Amber decided that life is short, and 'tis the season to make that album. And because holidays are about gathering with the ones you love, she asked her friends to be part of this new creation. From a heartland rock rendition of "Rudolph" to "I'll Be Home for Christmas" sung in English and Spanish to her own original title track "Be the Peace" and more, this show (and new CD) will uplift your holiday spirits.
She'll be joined by the musicians that contributed their musical finesse to the new album - Ralph Gilmore (drums), Jay Trapp (bass), Danny Krieger (electric guitar), Sabra Faulk (vocals, guitar), Alex Flores (sax), Seth Murzyn (viola), and Joe Ferguson (vocals, mandolin, guitar).
