Thank you to all our 2016 Entertainers! You all brightened our day and lifted our feet with your beautiful dance and music!
Neylan – Confirmed for 2016
Providence’s Neylan is well known for her unique blend of Tribal Fusion Belly Dance, Raks Sharki, and World Dance Stylizations. She effortlessly fuses her performances into a rich tapestry of movement that will captivate and inspire. She has been performing and teaching throughout New England for over a decade. As a choreographer and artistic directory, she has been involved with many theatrical projects and dance troupes.
Brian Willowfire – Confirmed for 2017
Willowfire draws from a diverse collection of roots to paint unforgettable musical images on an atmospheric canvas. Brian connects with his live audiences on an energetic level that is rarely seen. His guitar can be driving and heavily rhythmic while his voice lightly dances and shape-shifts the worlds of the ethereal plane. Fans have complemented on his innovative lyrical style, angelic voice, depth, and vision. The swelling dynamics of his live music build and raise a spiritual energy that can only be captured in person on an intimate level.
Jenna has a passion for holistic healing and teaches workshops on how to use the power of the voice, Tibetan singing bowls and gongs to heal and balance body, mind and spirit. Jenna Greene, “The Greene Lady”, is a weaver of musical myth and magic. With a voice that is both ethereal and soulful, she sings of ancient lore, finding wonder and following dreams.
She beautifully interlaces her Celtic, World Folk and New Age influences to create a presentation of haunting ballads, drum-driven dance tunes, lilting harp and mythic story. She has just released her second album Wild Earth Child, which she describes as “an ecstatic celebration of Nature’s dance.” It is a collection of mystical melodies and uplifting lyrics set to joyful rhythms.
Music has always been at the center of Chris’s life. Singing and playing in choruses and choirs inevitably led to directing them. Chris eventually spent more than two years in Ecuador, South America, teaching music and directing adult and children’s choirs.
After playing the guitar and singing for twenty years, Chris made his way to the Celtic harp in 1999, following his first trip to Brittany. Since then, he has traveled back to Brittany (with his harp) as well as Barcelona, Spain, and throughout Massachusetts and New England to play concerts and events, both as a solo performer and with others.
In addition to solo appearances, Chris performs with the Pilgrim Harp Trio of Cape Cod, of which he is a founding member, and is the musical director of a ritual performance troupe based in western Massachusetts. In addition to his music, Chris is a professor of Spanish at Boston College, and is a hobbyist beekeeper.
