John Two-Hawks

Saturday, July 18, 2015 - 7:30pm
Advance tickets: $20 general, $15 elders & youth, $50 includes VIP reception

Grammy and Emmy nominated, Platinum Award winning Native American Flute Music Recording Artist John Two-Hawks has spent his life looking intensely into the deep ways of Spirit, beauty, healing and connection.
With his music and his words, he has reached into a hurting world, sharing the healing power of love, compassion and wisdom.
The enchanting music of John Two-Hawks is considered by many to be a quantum leap above the fray.  It soars with breath taking symphonic sounds in one moment, and then soothes the spirit with the powerful organic voice of a lone Native flute in the next.  A master virtuoso of the Native American Flute, JTH is also an extraordinary vocalist, musician and composer.

Always, Two-Hawks has held fast to his Oglala Lakota Sioux lineage and culture, and it is from this place that the soul of the music he creates and breathes to life is born.

The NEW Horse Spirit album is thundering across the world with huge success, and is the strongest album release for Two-Hawks in years.  With an evocative story behind it, and incredible musical composition to tell that story, this new music is being very well received by John's die-hard fans and newcomers alike.  This incredible new music is drawn from his powerful experience being on horseback for 135 miles with hundreds of other Lakota people in the brutal winter of South Dakota in remembrance of the tragic events that took place in Wounded Knee in 1890.  And while paying homage to that experience, the music also speaks of the healing power of the human relationship to the horse.  The Lakota are a Horse Nation, and yet they are not alone in their deep connection with this powerful, spiritual being.  This music is for all who love, respect and honor the horse spirit.
A VIP Reception will be held preceding the concert from 5:30 - 6:30pm in our Art Bar featuring John Two-Hawks and Horse Spirit Artists Kim McElroy and Constance Funk. Preferred seating, a beverage, and refreshments from our Art Bar is included in the VIP ticket price.
