Community Sing and Potluck -
Music has purpose, to open hearts and grow consciousness.
Linda Stonestreet presents a 4 hour workshop or PlaYShop might be a better way to describe it! And potluck to follow. We will SING and learn forms of creating music spontaneously. When this workshop will be presented, I will have just spent 8 days at Omega Institute in Rhinebeck NY singing and learning with Bobby McFerrin,
We will use body movement and vocal practices developed by Rhiannon for 40 years. Her methods are unique and universal and key to collaborative sovereignty. These rich practices teach us how to be sovereign to ourselves while holding space for and in the circle. Through the Vocal River traditions/methods we learn about flexibility, forgiveness, trust and how to support others while maintaining our own integrity.
So far in 2019
Earlier this year she finished a 6-week stint with purposeful singers in Lisa Forkish's WeSing A-capella Choir. She studied Canoe Songs for 8 days, learning from Pura Fe & Rhiannon. She is in process of writing and recording her 4th album titled #SeedsAndAsh, an album about the River Fire, part of the Mendocino complex that scorched 400 Sq Miles of Northern California and burned over half of her land in 2018. This year she has been working in 2 bands. She was one of 9 singers in a vocal ensemble Outta Da Vox who coalesced an improv concert at beginning of June in Berkeley CA. She is co-lead singing with NAPA VALLEY Rock N Roll Band - Tall Order. Also she is leading a new offering, an immersion in vocal improv/ceremony in the Spirit of Water and Song which she introduced at California Worldfest in July..

Linda Stonestreet believes music has purpose; to open hearts and re-weave the fabric of society in harmony with mother Earth. Developing Song as ritual is her growing passion and is as important as the folk, gospel and vocal improvisation she loves. Of the 100 songs she's written, of which 40 are published, her favorites are the tunes about places that informed her music, places where wisdom is encoded in beauty. http://LindaStonestreet.com
