For years, "Windtalker" has been bringing this special brand of music to festivals, state and national parks, coffee houses, wineries, senior living facilities, schools, churches, private parties and other intimate venues. He was also the guest performer for a moonlight tour held by the National Park Service at New Mexico's Pueblo Bonito ruins at Chaco Canyon National Historical Park. Two of his songs will be featured on the soundtrack of the independent film, "Killing Cavendish," to be released late in 2013 and songs from his latest CD, "Canyon Whispers," can be heard on numerous internet radio stations. He now brings his wonderful show back to Detour Vineyard and Winery.
A portion of the proceeds from this concert will be donated to "Futures for Children," a highly-respected charity that provides educational and leadership opportunities for Native American children on reservations in the Southwest.
Says "Windtalker," "For years I have been searching for a way to put my passion for Native American people into action in a meaningful and enduring way. I am humbled and honored by this opportunity to support "Futures for Children's" mission and vision by donating a portion of the revenue from my performances, including sales of CDs, DVDs and books. By supporting me and my music, audiences will be helping Native American children escape the cycle of poverty, drug and alcohol addiction, and teen suicides that are rampant on the reservations. This support will provide hope and a bright future through a quality education and leadership development. As the saying goes, "Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach him to fish, and he can eat for a lifetime." By giving Native American children the education and leadership skills they need to succeed, they help not only themselves but ensure the future of their communities and the rich heritage of their tribal cultures."
