Shakori Hills GrassRoots Festival

A week ago today , Dh and I headed out to the Shakori Hills Festival , we were planning to go on Friday before Easter , but it was a cold rainy day so we didn't go. Keith Secola was performing Friday and Sunday night. Our Easter gathering was planned for Sunday afternoon , but after talking with the family , they all agreed we should go and we would have our gathering on Monday. They all know I'm a big fan of Keith Secola ~ ~ and he hasn't been to the festival in a year or so. It was a beautiful day , the weather was perfect and we really enjoyed seeing the local band pictured above Dark Water Rising ~ ~ . They're a Native American band from Robeson N.C. , home of the Lumbee Tribe .

Keith Secola's show was a tribute to the different Native American Tribes at the festival , he was joined on stage by Pura Fe and John Lakota Locklear ~ .

His show also featured Moontee Sinquah , who was the world champion hoop dancer in 2008.

This is Moontee's son , he performed with his Dad. The pictures aren't great , it was getting dark , we were under the dance tent and I was taking them sitting down. We had a great time though , eat some frybread and did a round dance to his song called " Frybread ".

~ Many Blessings ~

I love these kinds of music festivals. We don't have very many outdoors music concerts around here anymore... we have a few during the summer.

Sounds extremely fun! I used to go to powwows and I miss that. Glad you enjoyed yourselves.

That sounds like a awesome thing to go to! Will have to check it out next time. Trying like everything to catch up around here but I keep getting more behind. Think of you each time I work in the herb garden. Wondering how you are doing and how your herbs are growing. Learn so much from your herb blog! Have a blessed day!

I really like Keith Secola too! I'll have to check out Dark Water Rising. Pure Fe is supposed to be at the Spirit of the Woods Music Festival in Northern Michigan. ~ I plan on going since it is right around the woods from me. :)

Looks like you had a good time!
