Second Annual Festival of Giving – Performers
Performers at this year’s event include this wonderful ensemble of local artists:
Linda Breitag: Fiddler, singer, and writer of songs that tell the truth, Linda surfs the waves of passion, vulnerability and absurdity in a way that welcomes everyone.
Ellis: Folk artist, dharma teacher, and comedienne, her music is best described by the effect it has on her audience rather than a particular genre.
Dean Magraw: A casual glance at Dean Magraw’s career as a guitarist, composer, arranger, and producer reveals an artist uniquely consistent in his ability to rise to the highest level of musical expression in a dazzling array of contexts.
Ann Carter: Community Dance Caller Ann Carter will be calling some simple dances to the live fiddle music of Linda Breitag and friends. No experience necessary!
Louis Alemayehu: Poet, musician, educator and community elder Louis Alemayehu believes that poets are accountable to their communities. Through his ability to educate, mentor, and connect with young people, Louis is a leader in cultivating the next generation of community-engaged artists here in the Twin Cities.
Kevin Freidberg: Longtime community leader at Common Ground, writer, father and a funny guy.
