Tribes Hill Winter Solstice 2013 Invitation

Tribes Hill Winter Solstice 2013 Invitation
On Sunday December 15 at 4:30pm, Tribes Hill will be hosting our 12th Annual Solstice show at the First Unitarian Society of Westchester, home of the Common Ground Coffeehouse concert series.
We invite artists to join us in celebrating this special annual event.

Tribes Hill's 12th Annual Winter Solstice Celebration offers the opportunity for our collective of musical artists to unite and share fresh and familiar seasonal world music. Representing traditional, original, contemporary and classic genres, songs in native languages spotlight the diversity of celebration and highlight our commonality, the heart of this season’s traditions and festivities.

If you are interested in performing at the 2013 Solstice, please send an email to expressing your interest, naming the song you’d like to perform, any links to websites, videos, or streaming mp3s that would be helpful, and if possible, a lyric sheet for the song if it is an original song. If you propose to perform a cover, that is of course fine as well. As always, we encourage onstage collaboration with other artists, as well as songs that are suitable for audience sing-along. (Note: if you do not have ANY online presence at all, you may forward an mp3 file to the above email address.)

This evening celebrates not only the season in song, but also the spirit of community. Without the joint efforts of the Tribes Hill community to help with set up, clean up, food prep, and more, that spirit is weakened. If you are interested in performing, we recognize and thank you for your willingness to donate your time. If you are also willing pitch in offstage to help the event run smoothly, please say so when emailing us. Volunteering in some small or large way behind the scenes is not a requirement, but since many hands make light work, it will be one factor we consider in putting together our final line-up.

Our Winter Solstice Gathering and Rehearsal is tentatively scheduled at the Lake Katonah Clubhouse, Katonah, NY on Monday, December 2nd, 2013 at 6:00 pm. We will all contribute to create the holiday dinner. More information will soon be posted on the TH website and Facebook about making your RSVP for the rehearsal party.
