At Kinstone we take time to recognize the passing of the seasons with intentional events that remind us to honor our home in this part of the Universe. Join us as we greet Summer with a mystical, magical, musical welcome on Midsummer Day (a.k.a. Summer Solstice) in the large Stone Circle.
Experience the incredible, transformational sounds of Peter Phippen and Rahbi Crawford. They are master musicians who improvise and collaborate with great effect. The blending of flutes and crystal singing bowls will get right into our hearts and souls. Special guests Victoria Shoemaker (wooden and crystal flutes) and Brian Reidinger (percussion / drums) will also perform.
These world class musicians will take us on a sound journey as we sit amidst the standing stones of Kinstone Circle. They will enchant us with their sacred sound even as they lull the sun to sleep at sunset. As always, the musicians will join the breezes and the host of singing creatures living in and around the fields, forests and waters of Kinstone. Magical indeed.
