Come sing with nationally touring Celtic-Myth vocalist Sharon Knight at Air and Fire in Boulder Creek!
Sonic Alchemy is a process of transformation using music as the catalyst. We start with the premise that, like a musical instrument, we can go “out of tune”. When we do, we lose our sense of connection and purpose, and life loses its glimmer. Sonic Alchemy helps us to regain our harmony, and rekindle a sense of enchantment in our lives.
Sonic Alchemy is a gently guided journey through our inner landscapes, where we open, deepen, confront roadblocks, release, discover, and commit to our deepest desires. We use sound to orchestrate breakthroughs that may have been inaccessible otherwise. We can feel the resonance of sound in our bodies, which is why it can move us so profoundly. Through opening ourselves to song, we can gain perspective on aspects of our lives that we may have been too enmeshed in to see clearly before.
Sunday July 13th - noon - 3pm
Wear comfortable/yoga clothes.
Bring a journal, drums or rattles, and a water bottle.

San Francisco songstress Sharon Knight is a Celtic folk singer in leather armbands. She plays octave mandolin as if it were an electric guitar and sings as though she means to summon a storm. Her penchant for combining fierce and gutsy bravado with ethereal beauty, a hearty dose of fantastical lyrics, and an obvious love of storytelling has inspired her own musical style, “Neofolk Romantique”. Although her musical foundations are solidly built on her Celtic heritage, Sharon has never been one to hold fast to tradition, preferring instead to look to her roots for inspiration and then chart her own path. That path often sounds less Celtic and more “Folktales that ran away with the Faeries at the turn of the century and took cover in an old trunk bound for the circus, which was then commandeered by pirates.” She likes it this way.
Sharon’s distinctive voice and striking poetry have won her a loyal following across the country. Together with longtime collaborator Winter, she tours nationally several months out of the year, performing at festivals, masquerades, conventions, cafes, shops and house concerts. Their music has been heard on over 300 radio stations, enjoyed "top 10” status on MP3 and NAR charts, has been featured in three independent films, and captured the attention of major labels and independent labels alike. Sharon and Winter are the founding members of the gothic tribal folk metal band, Pandemonaeon, and they produce their own annual festival in California called Hexenfest. Winter has most recently played guitar on Blondie's latest album "Ghosts of Download," and has also produced and performed on Jessica Star's new album, "Mystical Creature."
The music of Sharon Knight combines a love of antiquity and romance with an affinity for the haunting and melancholy, adds a hearty dash of feistiness, and reminds us that we can all see the world through the eyes of enchantment.
Cost: $65.00 includes the 2 hour class and a one on one private session with Jenny Arnold, Certified Hypnotherapist.

Come to a very personal concert of Irish songs and histories. It will be an evening of a-capella music that weaves a spell of history and magic through the singing of Amelia Hogan.
This Concert celebrates Irish history as expressed through the voice of the storyteller in ballads, songs and the Sean Nos tradition. She''ll bring you on a journey of Irish experience from the old world to the new. From the wild mountains to the soggy turf, you'll travel an Irish road. It will begin with some traditional pieces that create a setting for the story and move through the journey to what the new world would have been for those new citizens. These songs are typically arrhythmic and unaccompanied and were meant to be sung by the fire to a very intimate audience. But there's so much more than Sean Nos to Celtic music. It the legacy of the immigrant, and it's all of ours.
