A week from today, Danny and I will be in California performing at the Circle of Harmony Concert which is a benefit concert for the Kumeyaay tribe in Poway, California. Danny and I have been performing at this concert on and off since it began, about 7 years ago. We enjoy performing at the concert, and really enjoy seeing all our friends.
The concert has all Native American Indian performers from all across the US. There will be dancers, flute players, storytellers and musicians performing through out the evening. Danny will be performing on flutes and dancing. I’ll be dancing and storytelling.
This benefit concert started as means to help restore a piece of original land belonging to the Kumeyaay tribe, and to build a interpret center. The proceeds from this concert are used to help with the restoration of the land (cleaned up trash, erected a fence around the small plot of land to help protect it, and planting of indigenous plants), building of the interpret center, and running of the interpreted center.
We are leaving this Thursday for California. Most of our day on Thursday will be spent traveling. It is a long flight out there and back. We’ll spend a good part of Friday doing rehearsals and part of Saturday doing any final rehearsals and preparations.
Then, the air will be filled with such excitement and the lights will come down and there will be a great hush come over the audience. Then the concert will begin. This concert is great fun and I encourage everyone who is able to come out for a night of great entertainment, to do so and help support a worth while cause at the same time.
We want to thank the Kumeyaay tribe in advance for having us again this year as performers in their Circle of Harmony concert. They are great host and we honored to be part of their festivities.
We also want to thank in advance, all the great Native American Indian performers who will pour lots of hard work, good energy and their hearts into their performances. We are honored to be sharing the stage with you all again this year.
Safe travels to everyone and we’ll see you soon. Enjoy!

One Final Note
I would like to mention that there is a non-profit group called “The Friends of the Kumeyaay” and they are very instrumental in helping with lots of aspects of the concert and interpretive center. You can learn more about them at this link: Friends of the Kumeyaay.
