Primal Rhythm Ensemble
Is a female drum ensemble based in Cleveland, Ohio. It was created by Sue Balaschak out of a desire to bring her studio CDs to the stage and share the power of drumming in a live setting. When we drum, we connect our mind, body, and spirit to all living things. The Primal Rhythm Ensemble brings a diverse and talented group of women to the stage to engage the audience in the wave of energy created by drumming.

Residing now in the foothills of the Arkansas Ozarks, raised in the dark hollows of Appalachia, Louis Garou has been traveling and writing most of his adult life. His music, he calls “Dark Americana” is popular among Witches and members of the Pagan community. He writes about Goddesses and Demons, about Witches and Wolves, about lonely, sometimes desperate people. And others who are not quite… People. Almost whispering, he calls all his music, love songs… Dark and twisted perhaps, but love songs. Come and join Louis, playing his old guitar, singing songs of Magic, Love, Darkness, and the Other Side…
Krista Chapman Green
A native Texan, I finally found my forever home twelve years ago in the foothills of Arkansas. I often picture the history of my life like a shattered mirror, and my songs are the stories of every broken shard. Every memory is one glinting piece of the whole, and like a kaleidoscope, all those broken pieces have been rearranged, creating beauty as the light shines through. My life and the lives of so many others that have touched me along the way are hidden here in the words and melodies of my songs.
